Eat some Hakarl in Iceland!


Hakarl. You've probably heard of it although you might not know it by name. Both Andrew Zimmerman and Anthony Bourdain have described this as some of the worst food they have ever eaten. These stinking, rotting, putrified cubes of shark meat are a delicacy in Iceland. Matter of fact, this food is so terrible that I'm inclined to believe that Icelanders keep on fermenting this stuff just to watch tourists eat it. With all the hype about it, I knew I had to at least give it a try. Becca opted out of this one, but she took the pictures of my friend Niraj and I noshing, and washing it all down with some black death. As if my face didnt tell the story for me, it was awful.
