Búrid - The Icelandic Pantry is a cheese shop in Reykjavík offering the best in gloriously stinky cheeses, jams, olives,cured meats, chutneys and other nibbles and noshes. The store has developed a strong following among Icelandic curd nerds for its selection of specialty foods from dairy farms and other small, local producers all over the country. You’ll find artisan cheeses made from Iceland’s unique goat’s, cow’s, and ewe’s milk, alongside organic skyr (skyr and Icelandic goat’s milk are the country’s two contributions to Slow Food’s Arc of Taste). Burid also offers up homemade farmhouse ice cream and other local epicurea like smoked and cured salmon, locally made preserves and harofiskur (traditional dried fish). The staff is eager to talk shop so it's a good place to get the skinny on the local foodie scene and sample some of the finest farmhouse fare Iceland has to offer.
