Hot Dog! Aug 22, 2014
Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, which translates as the “best hot dogs in town”, is arguably an Icelandic institution. Called Bæjarins beztu for short, their first hot dog stand opened in 1937 and they have added three more stands in Reykjavik. Almost all Icelanders have downed a dog here and tourists are paraded by as well, making a lengthy queue the easy way to find the place.

We visited the original stand and the line was not bad. The line moved quickly, so really no problem at all. I suppose they offer several varieties of toppings, but you can never get a good view of their menu board and everybody seems to simply order 'eina með öllu' or “the works.” This everything model includes onions (both raw and fried), ketchup, mustard and remoulade (like tartar sauce). My gang followed suit and soon dove in.

It was a good hot dog, but the earth did not shake for me. I thought the fried onions was the best part and my friends pretty much echoed my sentiment that it was tasty but not worth worship. That said, you would be hard pressed to find a less costly meal in Reykjavik. Definitely worth sampling when in town!
