"Bonne bouff III" Hidden Place

In the hidden place
In a hidden place
In a hidden place
We'll stay in a hidden place
Ooohh in a hidden place
We'll live in a hidden place
We'll be in a hidden place
In a hidden place
(Björk, Hidden Place)

On this picture there is an hidden place.
In this delicatessen store, there is an hidden treasure.
A secret place.
Only too few know about it.

Behind the window of this store where you will not only find the best cheese in town, delicious olive oils, and fine meats, you will also find one the best lunch table in Reykjavík.
Simply the best to quote another singer.
I am not over doing it or exaggerating.

This is simply the best place in town to have lunch.

Ostabúðin (the Cheese store in english), has a cellar used as a restaurant.
There is only few tables and chairs.

During lunch time, they propose 4 dishes
A salad with duck gizzards
The soup of the day (mushroom or tomato for example)
A fish soup with lobster and salmon
and the best of the best
The fish of the day.

Don´t bother to try to take the salad or the soups... do not waste your mouth. If you go to this place, just take the fish of day.
Just do it.
The fish of the can be anything.
Anything delicious.
It´s different every day.
I would even say.
This is better everyday than the day before.
This is all time extremely well cooked.
Very fresh.
Extremely ingenious
And most important
Totally affordable.
It only cost 1215 Icelandic kronur
(about 16 dollars /10 euros).

For such good food.
For fresh food, this is nothing !!!
Believe you want to spend your money on this.

Óstabúðin is the best lunch place in town and probably one the biggest secret of this town.
