Dream Feast @ Fosshotel Glacier Lagoon

It was a cold rainy day. We spent a night at this new beautiful hotel.

We all agreed to go for ‘Dream Feast (9,900 krona),’ a five-course meal with the best local ingredients that Iceland can offer.

1st course: Smoked Lamb Carpaccio
Leg of lamb marinated in honey and red pepper with blueberry gel and toasted hazelnuts. The lamb is from South Iceland and it’s smoked and dried for three weeks.

First time to taste smoked lamb. I liked it with the sweet blueberry.

2nd course: Langoustine Soup
Creamy soup with Langoustine & Scallop. Langoustine comes from South-West corner of Iceland and scallop from the Faroe Islands.

Best soup on the trip.

3rd course: Arctic Char aka “Klausturbleikja”
Arctic char with cucumbers, pears, mustard mayo and dill. The char is raised in spring water that has been filtered through layers of natural lava rocks, having originated from Vatnajokull Glacier

Perfectly seared.

4th course: Slow Cooked Icelandic Lamb
Leg of lamb with fennel, almonds, kale and hollandaise

Lamb is so tender and juicy. I like it better than one in US.

We were planning to go to sauna closing by 10pm. Dinner took longer than we expected. Since everything tastes so delicious, I would say “forget it” at this point.

Mmmmm…I was so content.
