Sample local fish at a locals' favorite

This article originally appeared on Touring Bird.

It’s not often that a fish and chippery makes the list of essential eats for any city, but Fisherman Fish Shop & Kitchen pulls that off. The simple menu adopts the “choose your own adventure” approach: Pick your local fish, such as Arctic char or haddock; pair it with a side of fries, sweet-potato mash, or creamy barley; and top it off with tartar, piri piri, or horseradish sauce, among other options. For a relatively affordable 1990ISK, these meals pack generous servings and rich flavors. You can also branch out to à la carte options, such as a fish stew sandwich, fried cod tongues, or fish balls. Better yet, buy a jar of dried fish from the Westfjords, canned cod and monkfish liver, or seaweed salt to take home with you.
