450 kroner for the sort of hot dog you see those small Japanese men devour in the food eat contests. The line is long so you get plenty of chance to listen to the American tourists: "not as good as a Chicago dog, but still...More

There was a long line, but worth the wait. I personally like just ketchup and onions, but had to try the special toppings and sauce famous in Reykjavik.

Really? The best hotdog? No. The cheapest thing to eat? Yes. Glad this was the first thing we ate upon our arrival as it set the bar quite low. (Any other hotdog in town will taste the same.) Think the birds enjoyed the crumbs most....More

Baejarins beztu pylsur (English: The best hot dog in town) often shortened to simply "Baejarins beztu", is a popular hot dog stand in central Reykjavik, Iceland. In August 2006, the British newspaper The Guardian selected Baejarins beztu as the best hot dog stand in Europe. The majority of Icelanders have eaten at Baejarins beztu. It's downtown near the harbor and has been open since 1937. Foreign visitors are often brought to the stand to introduce them to the hot dogs there, which are often called "the Icelandic national food." Among famous people who have eaten at Baejarins beztu are Bill Clinton, former president of the United States, and James Hetfield, vocalist of the popular heavy metal band Metallica. A hot dog condiments include ketchup, sweet mustard, fried onion, raw onion and remoladi, a mayonnaise-based sauce with sweet relish. Hot dogs are often ordered with "the works," i.E., All condiments, or in Icelandic "eina med ollu".
