It's the best hotdog in town - literally! Jan 08, 2011
This Icelandic institution, a small booth, in a parking lot by the harbour, started in the 1930s.

Bæjarins beztu pylsur literally meaning "The best hot dog in town" is a small no-nonsense hotdog stand, with but a table-bench outside in an parking lot area to sit on, serves up hotdog from midday to dawn, especially during the weekend nights.

My friends and I ordered each with 'everything on it'. Cost: 280KR (approx $2.75). The hotdog itself is unassumingly normal looking. A hotdog bun with onions underneath the hotdog and two types of sauces on top - mayo and mushroom gravy sauce. The taste? Delicious! The fried onions underneath is crunchy, giving it a surprising and exciting texture lacking in ordinary hotdog. The sauces were mild but creamy and tasty, complementing the hotdog, onions and the bun. It is very hard to describe the taste, so one must really have taste it to understand it! The lady at the stand said it is best eaten when warm.
