Baejarins beztu pylsur. Translation: The best hot dogs in town. We assure you that it's no overstatement or exaggeration. In fact, we can boldly state that those hot dogs are one of the best in the whole world. At least it's the best hot dog stand in Europe, according to The Guardian. Baejarins Bestu is a modest little hot dog stand in central Reykjavik, close to the harbor, and has been in business since 1937, which makes it one of the oldest establishments in downtown Reykjavik
You can't go to Iceland without having „ein med ollu', one hot dog with everything. So what does that imply? Ein med öllu is a hot dog in sliced bun, garnished with ketchup, dark mustard, fried onion, raw onion and remoulade, a sweet mayonnaise based sauce with relish. You could also try „The Clinton', named after former president Bill Clinton, who came to Iceland in 2004 and was called at by María, an employee of the famous hot dog stand. She recognized him and suggested he'd try „the best hot dogs in town'. Clinton ordered a hot dog with just mustard, and enjoyed it so much that a few months later he sent Baejarins Bestu a letter, thanking them for their hospitality and delicious hot dogs.
