In Reykjavik there are so many restaurants, it’s hard to pick one!
Eventually you just pick one and do hope it is a good one! It is a bit of a daily highlight…eating.. It is for me at least. Especially while traveling I love to try some new dishes. In Iceland I didn’t really found that much new food to try…if you don’t count the fermented shark that I tasted.. I really have to say that I didn’t like that and I was glad to get some alcohol with it to swallow it down my throat. Next to that shark I got some dried fish and mashed fish.. Those weren’t the food highlights I was hoping for.
Food while Traveling is a
Highlight on a Daily bases for me!
Well what was the highlight? It is almost embarrassing to say but….it was a delicious hamburger!! Yes.. a hamburger. I always like a good hamburger but is it culinair enough to write about? Well…they did make an art of it I must say so Yes….I’m writing about the hamburger at HamborgaraFabrikkan.
HamborgaraFabrikkan – Reykjavik, Iceland
The whole setting is American and everything is done in that same style. I thought it looked great! The service is quick and smooth, the personell is kind and cheerfull. I really think that’s important, it is the thing that makes a place pleasant and comfortable and makes me want to come back to.
The menu….also in that American style! Isn’t that great?
All those burgers…it was too much! I think there were about 50 different burgers to order. All looked like they were The Best, all the descriptions were worth reading. I saw different burgers on plates going by while other costumers were being served. They looked great! They were huge too. To get them in your hand like you would eat a fastfood hamburger was not an option here 🙂
I ordered a Seven Up and the Surf and Turf Hamburger and in no time I was served and had this great hamburger looking at me. The Seven Up was served in a big Coca Cola glass, real American and the hamburger … it daring me to eat it 🙂 The big hamburger was put together by a stick with a sign on it… which says: Hamborgara Fabrikkan. I loved the way they served it. By the way.. they’re buns are square and not the casual round ones we all know!
I started to eat with a fork and knife and it was delicious. Fresh ingredients, a good piece of meat and some great big gamba’s. And as if it was not enough yet.. you get some fries with it. Good thick potato fries, I do like them. They were salted nicely. I loved some mayonaise but while not in Holland you don’t get that with fries 🙂 but you get some ketchup!
It was great!! I loved the food!
HamborgaraFabrikkan – Reykjavik
Iceland is expensive,when you’re there you really need to think on paying at least 40 euro’s a night and then you are in the cheapest option. Which is a great option if you ask me!
So also for the food you need to consider paying about 20 – 25 euro’s for a meal with a drink. And if you take a dessert or a coffee after you need to add that.
HamborgaraFabrikkan is located just outside the centre of Reykjavik. It is easy to find and if you can’t find it, just ask a random local he’ll know where it is. It is a well known restaurant! From Laugavegur (citycentre) it is about 10 minutes walking.
And….They offer a ride if you are there on a friday- or saturdaynight. They’ll bring you to the citycentre after diner ( between 10 pm – 12 pm) with a cab if you don’t have a ride yourself.
How great is that!!
