So anyone who knows anything about Iceland knows that its ’Soul Food’ is Pylsur - or full-on triple-condiment Hot Dogs! Iceland’s most famous take-away is ’Bæjarins Beztu’ (Best in Town) right in the heart of Reykjavík, although there are a few more branches nowadays - and near enough every snack shack or ’Sjoppa’ offers a version of these. You typically ask for ’Eina með öllu’ or one with everything meaning - Ketchup, Mustard, Remoulade and Raw and Crispy Onions (5 items). Almost equally common is ’Með öllu nema hráum’ (everything but the raw onions) - which is actually how I tend to make them - while when in Iceland I usually go with ’Eina or Tvær með öllu’.
There are some trade secrets that Bæjarins Beztu still likes to keep close to its chest as it were - i.e. do they really add beer to the stock - and do they have their own exclusive recipe for the SS brand Hot Dogs they tend to use - but it’s generally understood that the Hot Dogs are cooked in some kind of Beef stock.
I have been perfecting my own recipe over many years - experimenting with different ingredients along the way as well as different layering order for the ingredients, and the following is the absolute best combination I have found.
The above is own interpretation and personal favourite - while in Bæjarins Beztu they do the lines of Mustard and Remoulade both on top - either side of the Hot Dog where it meets the Roll.
