Eating Rotten Shark in Iceland
Hakarl aka Rotten Shark is a signature Icelandic dish from the viking age. Since there isn't much vegetation in Iceland, they bury dead sharks in the soil for a few months so it can rot in their own juices after which they hang it to dry until its ready to serve.
This Icelandic delicacy can be purchased at the fleemarket in Reykjavik and was one of the most horrid foods I have ever tried.
It tastes like ammonia and smelly feet 100x, even my upstairs neighbors were complaining about the stench coming thru the ceiling cracks.
I recommend chasing this snack with a shot of Icelandic Brennivin aka Black Death or the best Icelandic beer called Gull.
