3 Frakkar

14 Baldursgata
Reykjavik , Iceland http://www.3frakkar.com/
354-552-3939

This family-run business in old Reykjavik Central was opened by chef Úlfar Eysteinsson in 1989. Popular with locals and unabashedly Icelandic, 3 Frakkar accommodates just 44 diners in its cozy, old-school dining room enlivened by mounted fish and stuffed rams' heads on the walls. The restaurant serves up popular indigenous dishes including salted cod, fried fish-chins, and hashed fish with black bread. More exotic specialties include whale pepper steak washed down with potent shots of a local hooch called Black Death.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Only in Iceland would smoked puffin, pâté of guillemot (a type of sea bird) and whale sashimi be staples at a family-run restaurant in a quiet residential area. 3 Frakkar offers some of the most delicious renditions of local specialties, in a dining room with a pleasingly homey vibe and walls lined with mounted fish and stuffed ram's heads.

We loved: Minke whale pepper steak in pepper sauce.
