So after being forced to relax and chill in the waters my legs feel like lead which isn’t helped by the ‘proper’ boots im wearing but as part of the package we had a table was reserved in the onsite restaurant Lava.
Yet again the Icelanders put on a great service and great food. After my fishfest last night I did opt for the chicken option on the lunch menu.
Fried chicken breast and slow cooked leg
Parsnip, green kale, onion, bacon, almonds
ISK 3950 (about £20) it was exactly what the doctor ordered. A hit of protein and a few greens to balance it out, perfectly cooked and succulent.
Although I felt like I might fall face first into the plate we shared the “Skyr” mousse and liquorice ice cream. It was beautifully light and refreshing with a energy boosting sugar dosage. Skyr is the local/Scandinavian version of strained yogurt and they sell it everywhere.
Right time now to pass out on the coach back to Reykjavik in hope that the power nap recharges me and that the weather is good for a late night of sky staring for dancing lights without the usage of any narcotic chemicals…. Other than perhaps a strong cup of coffee….
