Cheap and fast - upside is the fantastic beach behind it Aug 30, 2009
Want some roadhouse food, Islandic style, well here it is.
It is basically an Icelandic form of a fastfood joint. It was a small convenience store and a counter where you could buy sanwiches, fish soup, meat choices, and that was about it. The only thing I was going to try was a grilled cheese. Their versoin had a"marmalade" with it. I have no idea what that was and the girl couldn't explain it. So, I explained what I wanted. She then said "you want the ham and cheese". How did this become difficult? I explain again and think that we understand each other but, 10 minutes later, I am presented with a ham and cheese. I explain to the cashier what I had ordered and after checking the ticket she took care of replacing the sandwich.
So, the lesson is, if you a vegetarian, you might want to write it down or just bring your own and go down to the beach behind for a real treat.
