Husband’s Day

Husband's day - Isafold Restaurant

Today is a special day in Iceland – a day we call Bóndadagur which is directly translated as Husband’s day. On Husband’s day wifes and girlfriends usually take a time to pamper their men to make the day as special for them as possible.
Bóndadagur is also the beginning of an extra special month which is the old Icelandic month of Þorri and during Þorri Icelanders celebrate with winter festivals that includes eating traditional Icelandic food that was quite popular or should we say a necessity in the old days -but today it’s more of a fun thing to do and only enjoyed during the month of Þorri by most Icelanders.
The delicatess served and enjoyed during Þorri consists of dried fish, sour blood and liver pudding, smoked lamb and soured meat products along with ram testicles. All of this is enjoyed with a glass or two of traditional Icelandic Brennivín – Yummy, right?
Back to Bóndadagur or Husband’s day – since we know that not everyone is to enthusiastic for trying the old Icelandic delicatess but would like enjoy the old tradition of Bóndadagur and make the day as special for husbands and boyfriends, we have just the solution since the chef’s at our restaurants are ready with the most delicious menus specifically made for all the husbands out there – no ram testicles – we promise.
So, if you’re hungry and would like a special treat in terms of gourmet food and drinks tonight check these two restaurants out:
