Today’s Breakfast: Fish and Chips
Thanks to our black curtains and the time change, we slept until 1pm. Therefore we skipped straight to Icelandic Fish & Chips, an organic fish and chips place in Old Harbor. You pick your fish, your side and sauce. Fortunately they offer a sampler platter, which is the way to go.
Henry ordered the red fish and I ordered the cod. It was light and tasty. All of the sauces are spectacular. The orange is a chili sauce. Others included mango, tsasziki, tartar, basil, and wasabi. Despite my best efforts, I left half of my food on my plate. (Same is true for our 6 pm supper.)
We could see the water and the mountains from the window.
Lava rocks are everywhere – inside and out. Here they are used for the counter. Like most stores and restaurants in Rekyjavik, Icelandic Fish & Chips includes a small place for kids to play/read/work on an elevated space to the right of the counter. I noticed it when pouring a glass of self-serve water. Kids can’t go anywhere, but they are out of sight to give both parents and themselves a little break. Love it.
