Eating Sheep's Head in Iceland
Sheep's head is an Icelandic delicacy which can even be purchased at the local BSI drive-thru. It comes microwaved complete with mashed potatoes
Sheep's head, known in Iceland as Svio is a true Icelandic delicacy.
I always like to try the most awkward dishes when I travel to new countries. In order to buy the sheep's head I had to visit a drive-thru since no restaurant was serving it this time of year.
The BSI drive-thru offered this meal for around $15 but unfortunately came microwaved. Eating an entire sheep's head is definitely up there with the living octopus I ate in South Korea.
Next time I will try the rotten shark, known as Hákarl, when visiting Iceland.
