#hakarl! Fermented #shark, chased with a #brennivin shot (in a wooly #lopapeysa design shot glass). I didn't think it was that bad. #reykjavik #midnightsun #landoftheiceandsnow

There is a special... emm... dish here in Iceland called Hákarl. Vikings could fish only Greenland shark, which has no kidneys due to it's meat is full of ammonia and urea. To make it eatable they placed it into the ground for 5 weeks or even more, than hanged on a hooks and leaved outdoors for 2-4 months. Hákarl is an acquired taste; it has a very particular ammonia-rich smell and fishy taste. Mostly it's eaten once a year during þorrablót holiday in midwinter but some people eat it just like a snack year around. It is often eaten with a shot of the local spirit called brennivín. Brennivín is made from fermented grain or potato mash and flavored with caraway, cumin, angelica, and other botanical ingredients. I just tried Hákarl a few minutes ago and should say (despite the first piece I chocked with) its taste was not nearly as bad as the smell, but it's really hardcore. Hallgrímskirkja is seen on the background, Reykjavík, Iceland.

kregal : Nowadays I think more foreigners eat shark than us locals😜
timo_niemi : @kregal I know it.) Hopefully you have another good food to eat.)) But anyway there are still locals who like it and eat as snack and I don't think there are same tourists.)
kregal : Well, respect to you for trying it out :), I prefer the dry fish "harðfiskur", you should try that if you haven't already 👍
timo_niemi : @kregal Thank you!)) I'll try harðfiskur, thank you!

Day 4 ~ EuroTour 2014 About to try #hakarl (#icelandic fermented shark) & brennivin. I have been warned. #iceland #europe #travel #eurotour2014 #food
charliesu212 : Can't like this one. That stuff is crazy. Like a mouthful of nasty Vicks. We have Brennivin in our freezer, its only for unsuspecting guests who are like...cool, I'll try it. Haha
fakejoy : Oh man, this tasted like it was soaked in rubbing alcohol and then when combined with Brennivin (aka Black Death) the taste exploded in my mouth. It nearly killed me.

Today I ate Hakarl, the traditional Icelandic rotting shark meat. It might sound (and smell) disgusting, but it's way worse #hakarl #putrid #shark #iceland

thebeerviking : @adventures_of_creativity they speak Icelandic. It's an offshoot of Old Norse. A lot closer to it than modern day Scandinavian languages like Norwegian/Swedish.
jdflash24 : Will nailed it. Icelandic is the closest modern language to what the Vikings spoke
