Blessed with an abundance of clear water, fertile fishing and fresh vegetables year-round, Icelanders like saucy, salty, and well-seasoned food. Lamb roam so freely they can almost be described as game meat. Wild reindeer from eastern Iceland appear on some menus. Icelanders have centuries of experience cooking seabirds, especially puffins and guillemots; and harvest some of the world’s freshest seafood: cod, haddock, catfish, monkfish, halibut, trout, arctic char and salmon. Iceland's greatest food invention, a yogurt-like product called skýr, is gaining popularity abroad. And last, but not least, Iceland has the world's best hot dogs.
