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.

During our recent trip to Reykjavik, my husband and I attended Eirny's cheese workshop and had a wonderful time! Eirny's passion for cheese is contagious, and her lecture on Icelandic cheese culture is enthralling. The spread of cheeses, breads, and fruits was beautiful and delicious....More

Love this place. I wanted one of everything here. They have Icelandic cheese, sausages and salami and they also sell their own brand of biscotti.

The selection of this cheese shop is wonderful and they make their own jams as well. It is right down on the marina so access is easy. But we also attended the lecture that Eirny, the owner, gives. She does an excellent job of describing...More

Far away.... near the wintry harbor where the salt winds blow, is a tiny artisanal cheese shop known as "Burio." We were searching for local Icelandic cheese. But there was little to find from the shop keeper who sheepishly admitted that the store specializes in...More

For me the favourite shop to go to when planning a good wine and cheese evening is the Burid cheese shop. You go there and get a top service, educated in the reveries of the cheese experience and you end up preparing an evening that...More

I always search out local cheese shops when I travel and found Burid. Interestingly most of the cheese it carries are European imports; there isn't a large local artisan cheese industry. The helpful staff introduced the local cheeses, provided generous samples and suggestions. I left...More

My partner and I visited this shop as we are both big fans of cheese and wanted to see what Icelandic cheeses were like. Burid had four or 5 local cheeses even though cheese making is not a mature (sorry) industry in Iceland. The young...More
