Really great local food!
The café at Skriðuklaustur is to me the cherry on top of the north east food scene.
The museum is a well kept memorial to the life and works of Icelandic writer Gunnar Gunnarsson and in the last few years also attached the excavation and archeological findings of a 15th century monastery.
I daresay the lady in charge here has pulled one of the most original and delicous lunch buffets in Iceland, using I believe only local ingredients. And I mean local as in walking distance. She picks the mushrooms herself in the birch forest, climbs the hills for the right angelica for her soup, makes jam from the rubarb in her garden, her friend grows the freshest organic greens and the lamb is from her neighbour and the reindeer was propbably cought by her husband. In the years I have been coming to this place not once has the buffet not looked exquisite, not once has it not been fresh and delicious and not once have I not enjoyed being there. My hat goes off to this one. It´s local cuisine at its most innovative, humble and best.
