This restaurant in Iceland only serves dishes with tomatoes

Must Try

Tomato lovers among us know that they can put a trip to Iceland at the top of their bucket list. There is a restaurant in the far north where every dish is made with tomatoes.

We don’t make it up.

View of the greenhouses

The restaurant we are talking about is called Friðheimar and is located in the Icelandic village of Reykholt. The place is completely surrounded by greenery: exactly how you would expect it from that spectacular Icelandic nature.

Once inside you get a table with a view of the greenhouses. There you can see how three different tomato varieties are grown. By the way, booking a table in advance is a good idea: people are eager to taste this Icelandic tomato menu. And if you look at the photos below, you’ll understand why.

Iconic tomato soup

What to expect Well, you have one certainty in any case: that every dish is made with tomatoes. Also the cocktails, also the desserts. For example, you can start with their iconic tomato soup, served with a dollop of sour cream and toast with cucumber salsa.

For main courses you can choose from common dishes such as ravioli with tomato sauce and pesto, tomato tortilla with basil and mozzarella or Icelandic burrata with tomato salad and basil oil.

From tomato beer to cheesecake

If that doesn’t impress you, it might be worth taking a look at their alcoholic drink offerings. The restaurant has its own tomato beer, tomato schnapps and a nice selection of tomato cocktails. Bloody Mary , of course, but also all kinds of variants (a Happy Mary with green tomatoes and bitter lemon, just to name a few).

In this cool video from Travel Man you can see how British comedian Joe Lycett is going to discover the restaurant with Bill Bailey. In it you see how the desserts are not spared the ingredient. Distinguishing the tomato cheesecake from the ice cream proves to be a challenge, but nevertheless the two are lyrical about the restaurant.
