Sushi

On Laugavegur, just above the intersection with Skólavörðurstígur, is SushiBarinn, a tiny jewel of the Orient tucked unobtrusively in between a café and the walled off carcass of a house slated for demolition/renovation. It's easy to miss, and looks from the outside as if it would be ridiculously impossible for more than one or two people to sit inside at a time, but appearances deceive. Inside it somehow expands to accommodate, and provides a small bubble of meditative respite from the hustle outside. And the sushi is excellent too.

I love your outdoorsy pics. It is unfortunate to see what is going over there though. Hubs and I were there in 2001, well I visited, he was stationed there. I loved it. What a beautiful country. Looking forward to catching more of your wonderful posts!

This will be a great relief to pop into - we only knew of one awful sushi place above a busy book/gift store down town. The sushi was completely gross!
