I discovered a new delicacy at Prikið – a jam burger! This was so gorgeous. The description from their menu:
Jam burger: with shredded cheese, camembert, blue cheese, parmesan, lettuce and jam.
It sounds a little cheese-heavy in the description, but it turned out to be just the right amount of each flavour.
Annoyingly, I didn’t take a photo of it in all its glory – even more so given I took several less exciting photos out of the window instead. However a fellow blogger who also has good taste did – below image from http://www.anthonysecco.com/2011/11/food-and-favors-in-reykjavik/
I’m not surprised that this was so good – after all, this is the land of the “4 cheese pizza with jam on the side” that is another favourite of mine. Cheese and jam are the perfect combination and balance each other out. I don’t know why no one else has figured this out yet. I also don’t know why it didn’t occur to me that if jam was good was pizza, it would also be good with a cheeseburger! I’ll definitely be recreating this one at home.
And in case you’re interested, here is the view from upstairs at Prikið, a highly recommended place to eat.
