“Everything Icelandic is our motto and we decided to specialize in lamb dishes” says Herborg Svana Hjelm, co-owner of FJÁRHÚSIÐ together with chef Birgir Rafn Reynisson. “I don’t know of any other restaurant that has only lamb meat on their menu”, she adds. “The meat comes from farmers in North Iceland. The sheep graze on fields or highland areas where no pesticides are used and the animals don’t get any kind of antibiotics. We serve the meat with seasonal vegetables grown nearby here in Iceland. The spices are Icelandic herbs and we make all our sauces from scratch.”
The meat is grilled and there is a choice between lamb chops, lamb burgers, lamb on a spit with vegetables, hot dogs – and an Icelandic flatbread filled with blueberry marinated lamb.
