There's no debating that Iceland is best known for quirkiness, but we didn't realize how much it crossed over into its population's food choices. The country stays true to its Viking roots — and the slogan "Sustainable Iceland since 874 AD." Iceland's diet mainstays include seafood (they're completely surrounded by the Arctic waters, so they eat a lot of fish), potatoes, lamb, and, of course, skyr.
What we actually discovered while exploring Reykjavik's culinary scene was a few more unusual and offputting dishes. Warning: not for the faint-hearted (or vegetarians)!
