Memories of Snaefellnes Peninsula near Bùðir. Due to the single lane roads, I have to coordinate a stop when I see a window of opportunity with no cars in either direction for a few kilometres, to be safe and responsible. Always hazards signals on too. Many road trippers don’t, quite dangerous, as the average speeds are 95km-110km/hr.
So the fermented shark was decent, like a very ripe strong soft cheese. The locals on average eat it only on special holidays and festivals that celebrate old tradition. Some of those in smaller fishing villages or just old school may eat it more often, as per their preferences. Of the three waitresses here, none of them like it very much 🙂
I had no idea what to expect for the Minke Whale dish. The chef made it tatami style, it was darker than the darkest tuna sashmi I’ve eaten. Flavour is similar but lighter, and very clean tasting. Texture is also smoother except for the sinews. Served on a bed of sweet potatoes purée and caramelised raspberry sauce.
