Icelandic cuisine is certainly very popular and might seem a bit quirky and strange, but this is how actually how the whole character of Iceland is – may be remote to some extent and quite quirky, but definitely very charming, special and unique. Like in many countries, Icelandic gastronomy is based on the traditions and culture, local lifestyle and the main produce of the country, but the local cuisine is also internationally influenced, so in most of the Icelandic restaurants and food establishments you will be provided with a pretty vast choice and a good blend of traditional, international and fusion dishes.
The country is mainly known for its seafood delicacies, which is not surprising, considering the fact that Iceland is a marine country. However, if you are not that much of a fan of some good fish dishes, do not worry, because the country is also offering a great selection of carnivorous and vegetarian receipts, as well as some more special and quirky meals.
