Baejarins Betzu Pylsur - Reykjavik, Iceland

Declared the best hot dog street food van in Europe by the Guardian Baejarin's is never without a queue or crowd, even Bill Clinton has graced them with their presence and has his mouth wrapped around their sausage.

Hot dogs are the go to cheap food in Iceland, if you're on a budget you might see yourself eating quite a few so why not try the best too?

The sausage is lamb based with pork and beef, it is steamed and topped with ketchup, sweet mustard, remoulade (a mayo based sauce). Crispy onions are optional but I'd recommend them for a bit of extra to your bite.

I'm not hot dog connoisseur but I agree they are good, I struggled to see much difference between this sausage and the sausages I can get in Ikea at home for ..p aside from size. The major player in taste with these hot dogs are the sauces, it's a combination I've never tried before, much more savoury than I'm used to with England's sweet tomato sauce and mild mustard.

Would I say they're the best in Europe? I'm not sure, I think I need to eat a bucket load more hot dogs in many more countries to provide an argument for this assertion. It's worth a try, it's not going to break the bank and it's one of those 'must do' activities in Reykjavik.
