Confusion cuisine. We just
Wanted it to stop.
We chose the tasting menu for 8,900 isk each (about £50 a head).
I rather liked their branding at the start.
By the end, it was ominous.
Pappy “French baguette” with mayo
Steamed mussels from Hrisey
with langoustine broth and bonito
Delicious, but the kind of thing you’d toss together at home on a work-night
Grilled Pork Ribs with peanuts, spring onion and bbq sauce
The meat was tender enough, but you could taste nothing but sugar.
Beef Salad with avocado, beansprouts and chilli-lime sauce
Perhaps the most disappointing thing I have ever eaten. Like a packet of stir-fry veg served raw with some kind of unnervingly sharp and watery dressing.
Mix of Sushi and Sashimi
Grilled wild salmon from þjórsá River with yuzu miso and onion pakora
Just thinking about this makes me heave. Why would you serve fish with caramelised oranges and yoghurt? Why?
Atlantic Salted Cod with fennel, sweet potato salad and orange sauce
More yoghurty fish. I say no.
Grilled fillet of mountain lamb from Kópasker
with butternut puree, beetroot salsa and thyme glace
The lamb was nicely sweet and smoky, though the alfafa sprouts added nothing. Peas were good.
“Premium Blend” Dessert Selection
This was just odd. Though the ice cream with Smarties crumbled over it was okay.
Is it … over?
The scene of our interminable trial
