Icelandic hot dogs are all the rage here. We have finally made it to Iceland after a false start in June (we missed our flight) and I was told that one of things you have to do is visit this hot dog stand that has been running since 1971.

The hot dog is covered in “cronions” (crunchy onions) and lots of other sauces I don’t know how to name. The overall result is surprisingly pleasant and tangy and addictive! 

I think we’ll be eating many more of these hot dogs over the coming week as they are also apparently the cheapest things to get in Iceland!

Roast lunch at the Dead Doll’s Club house in Hoxton. 4 course meal centred around pork (except dessert, thankfully!) for ¬£25. The pork balls starter with a mustard applesauce dip was the highlight for me. The roast was also wonderfully done with perfect roast potatoes. The dessert was a bit too big after all the food we’d eaten and extremely sweet fudge, however the vanilla black rice pudding was interesting and helped balance out the sweetness a little bit.

A fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon and I wish I had time to try the chicken and beef centred menus!

If you want a long, very long (4 hours or so) lazy Sunday lunch then it’s a perfect place to try something a little different along with your roast, and at a very good price!
