The shorter days mean that more activities and festivities take place indoors. These indulgent winter buffets certainly feed the body and soul. The Christmas buffet in Iceland is by nature big, bold, and bountiful and Hotel Rangá’s Christmas menu is no exception. Laden with hearty fare and overflowing with flavor, they are a mouthwatering sight to behold.
Begin gently with a spicy glass of jólaglögg (mulled wine) and then get settled for a long evening. Start off with a fish or mushroom soup then move onto the heartier delicacies such as platters of smoked and cured meats and fish; duck, goose, lamb, reindeer, salmon, trout, and herring are all classic ingredients.
Sample classic caramel glazed potatoes, delicious pates, and rich flavorsome sauces.
