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.

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
