We didn't want to be in #Reykjavik and miss out on the local #delicacies, so we found a platter that included #hakarl (fermented shark), whale and a shot of #brennivin, among other things. #Iceland #travel #adventure #explore #picoftheday #food #foodporn

Lest you think Iceland is all cuddly ponies and rainbows, here's a massive (and massively dead) Greenland shark, caught a few days ago. Poisonous if eaten fresh, it will soon be butchered and placed in wooden crates to begin the long process of fermentation, which neutralizes its toxins. The pungent final product, hákarl, once a key protein source for these hardy fishermen, is now an Icelandic delicacy. Snack anyone?
garretms : Oh wow!
daezjn : 😢
sjm143 : @fear_the_ancientchinesebeard OFuck, I'm scared!!!

fun_facts_from_dogs
There's a traditional dish in Iceland called hákarl, which is a "putrefied shark snack" made of Greenland or sleeper shark where the meat is buried and left to ferment for about three months, then it's cut up and dried for another few months. Icelanders don't really eat it often, but it's high on the tourism to-do list for adventurous visitors. Shark populations worldwide are plummeting because of overfishing, so Iceland recently freaked out about how a shortage of hákarl may damage tourism, but the country is generally pretty great at managing their fish stocks and the shark population there has been booming lately. Phew. But wait -- the poor sharks!! #funfact #wow #interesting #iceland #hákarl #hakarl #shark #greenlandshark #sleepershark #conservation #tourism #jaws #shihtzu #shihtzus #shihtzusofinstagram #rescuedog #dynamicduo

this is me trying out 'Hakarl' or fermented shark, a delicacy here in Iceland. honestly it starts out not too bad but once you keep chewing, man its pretty hardcore. a definite must try if you're ever here, just make sure you have some soda with you hahah #AmsyarTravels #iceland #reykjavik #hakarl #wheninreykjavik #wheninkef #mystopover
reykjavik - hakarl - wheninreykjavik - amsyartravels - iceland - mystopover - wheninkef -
amsyarism : @izarraazuddin the locals here eat it with brennivin which is an alcohol they call " black death " and they really enjoy challenging tourists trying both at the same time hahaha. And they only do it at like this ceremony once a year or so but not all of em. when you first bite into it, it tastes sorta like smelly raw fish which wasn't bad ! but as you keep chewing it just dissolves in your mouth and it bursts flavor of rotten food or strong ammonia and it covers every bit of your mouth and really that's the hardcore part. Strong ammonia taste haha
izarraazuddin : Oh that's interesting! But the combination of rotten food and ammonia my god hahaha and you took 3! Good experience, Amsyar! At least you can say you've tried it 😛 Anyway I'm really enjoying your posts, esp the Aurora Borealis, it's been on my bucketlist 😍 have fun, Amsyar! You seriously deserve this break 😊
amsyarism : @izarraazuddin yeah it was great experience but I don't think I'll ever try it again 😂 thanks Izarra! you've no idea how much that means to me. hope you get to tick it off your bucket list very soon !😊
amsyarism : @petitepostcard when you first keep chewing, it's quite alright. then it suddenly sorta dissolves in your mouth. and when that happens it's just like a burst of this rotten and ammonia flavor hahah

itztrish7 : so what do people eat in Iceland?! been wanting to go there, but you know food is kind of a big deal to me lol
its_charisma : Haha of course! their food is actually good (& most of the restaurants come with sticker shock & for the best restaurants, reservations are a must) lots of seafood, lamb & randomly enough, hotdogs. Their delicacies are rotten shark, minke whale (Wayne tried it multiple times & I made him feel so guilty 😡), puffin (didn't try it tho), reindeer & sheep's head! @itztrish7

One of the many faces eating Hakarl for the first time. This one in particular represents most of the people. It's amazing to think how purple manage to figure out a way to eat the poisonous meat as a way to survive.

The infamous Hakarl of Iceland, the fermented shark. A delicacy of Icelanders, not just a tourist trap. We visited the shark museum to see where it all came from and the one family who still does it, but only from the trawlers. #hakarl #Icelandic #fermented #shark #iceland #stinky #ammonia #delicacy #wouldyoudoit
