Iceland: Halldorskaffi

We spent one night in a cabin near Vik before heading toward Foss a Sidu, the last leg of our Iceland adventure.  Along the way, we stopped at Dyrhólaey, Reynisdrangar, and Fjaðrárgljúfur for some fabulous photo ops. 

It was misty and wet, but that just added to the mystique of the island.  Here's a shot from Fjaðrárgljúfur:

I might have been humming the Lord of the Rings theme song as we hiked along the gorge. 

In-between sights, we stopped for lunch at Halldorskaffi in Vik:

The restaurant was quite spacious inside:

CV and CL both ordered the local Arctic char (3890 ISK or around $38.90): 

The grilled char came with potatoes and a side salad, both of which were more precious than the fish itself.

T got the Halldorsburger (2490 ISK):

The house special burger came with cheese, bacon, mushrooms, onions, and garlic sauce.

As big lamb lovers, DK and I went with the lamb sandwich (2490 ISK):

Check out this cross section:

The sandwich was stacked with lamb, lettuce, red pepper, mushrooms, and onions.

There aren't many restaurant options in Vik, but if you overlook the typical Icelandic prices and lukewarm service, Halldorskaffi is a good choice for a casual meal.  The portions are generous and the food is decent.  What more can you ask for in Iceland?
