Sampling Icelandic Specialties at Tapas Barinn in Reykjavik, Iceland
Despite the country’s economic upheaval and the devaluation of its currency, Iceland is still a very expensive place to visit. But for every posh and pricey restaurant, there’s a more accessible option. Budget diners in the mood to try some Icelandic cuisine can head to Tapas Barinn where native specialties like puffin and whale, which tastes suprisingly like steak, are served up alongside myriad seafood delights and more traditional Spanish tapas. The small portions, and corresponding small price tags, mean you can try some of the country’s most unique and delicious dishes and still have enough Kronur left for a few frosty pints of Viking or Thule beer.
