More on my favorite local food: Eldsmiðjan is just, hands-down, the most awesome pizza place here in Reykjavik, with every pie hand-turned and baked in a birch-fired open stone stove. Their original location, tucked into a residential area (on Bragagata just around the corner from the Big Church) was like our private neighborhood restaurant for years, until it got too popular for comfort. They've since opened two more locations, one at Laugavegur 81 (which interestingly enough also houses an apartment hotel, L81, that I had no clue about) and one just across Suðurlandsbraut from the popular Laugardalur nature and sports area (where the hostel, main swimming pool, World Class gym, family play park, zoo, botanical gardens and camp site are located.)
The glorious creation pictured above is the now-famous N Pizza with pepperoni, jalepeno, cream cheese, pineapple, green and black olives, garlic, oregano, minus mushrooms and plus bleu cheese. Just stunning!
