No matter how cold it is in Reykjavik, there’s always a long queue at this hot dog stand.
Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, which means, “town’s best hot dogs,” has been serving up, well, the best hot dogs in town, since 1937.
I joined the queue and waited to order my hot dog with the works.
The “works” consists of the following:
-a stripe of ketchup
-another of sweet brown mustard
-and a third of remoulade (mayonnaise mixed with pickle relish)
-fried onions, and (this makes it really yummy)
The juicy hot dogs, made of beef, pork, and lamb, are served on these clever wooden racks, with their curved sections perfect for holding the dogs.
It has been said that Bæjarins Beztu hot dogs are the best in the world.
I can’t speak for the hot dogs of the rest of the world, but I can say that this is one hot dog that shouldn’t be missed.
