Burid the Icelandic pantry


Casual dining International Gourmet food

Prima Donna cheese may not be Icelandic... but it's still delicious and you can get it here!

If you're looking for a place where you can get stinky and flavoursome cheese in Reykjavik, look no further. Burid - The Icelandic Pantry, is a cheese shop in Reykjavík not far from the centre that offers the best in wonderfully smelly goods, cheeses, olives, cheese spreads, cured meats, dried fruit, bread, crackers and everything else you might need for a romantic evening with your lover, or a night of mindless self-indulgence with yourself.

The shop was founded by Eirny Sigurdardottir in 2008. She describes herself as a dedicated curd nerd who is keen on fighting the good fight for all cheeses. That statement has to be true because her beautiful cheese shop has an infinite amount of exciting choices that enable you to taste the whole world. Try the infamous UK Stilton cheese, or the heavenly Dutch Prima Donna cheese that melts in your mouth and makes you feel luxurious as ever. There is also a great selection of French and Spanish cheeses. During lunchtime, they offer affordable meals, soups and other delicacies.

But that's not all. You can buy a gift voucher for a loved one from Burid, have them arrange customised gift boxes for any occasion, or put together spectacular cheese plates according to your needs and budget. Burid even offers Cheese School, where you can learn everything you always wanted to know but were too afraid to ask, about cheese. Imagine spending an hour and a half on getting to know cheeses by smelling them, tasting them and learning their history. You can sign up for the class by telephone or e-mail.
