Today's Hot Tip: When in Iceland, eat lamb. As opposed to beef, I mean. Seafood is always also a must here, but if you get a craving for red meat, opt for our tender and flavorful local lamb over, say, a steak. Icelandic beef simply isn't very tasty; it's very lean but also on the tough side. These are, after all, hearty arctic cattle we're talking about, not fattened-up lazy heifers like you find in the States. Hamburgers are generally good, but don't expect juicy slabs of ground beef between your bun...the generic burger patty is about a quarter-inch thick and that's it. If you do want a burger though, go to Hamborgarabúllan,a tiny joint on Myrargata at Ægisgata (look on the upper left side of this map). Its simple, classic and comfortable. If you need a steak, go to Argentina. It doesn't look like much from the outside but I've heard it's amazing on the inside, where it counts. Now you know.
