MRE reviews

Here is a list of ratios used during the trip. I'll use this myself as a reference what is inside each ratio bag. In general all ratios were eatable, below is a scale for taste esimation by my taste. Bad ones are tastes that I don't like, but the food was ok. Thuna ratio was cold and couple of chicken ratios were pretty tasteless(even with tabasco/hot sauce). If there is no taste to boost up, hot sauce does not help.

Ratings to my taste :
😋 Delicious
😊 Good
😐 ok
😥 Bad

 Icelandic food :

There are some good restaurants in Reykjavik and Akureyri, but in rural areas the food is mostly hamburgers or sandwiches. I ate 2 hamburgers and one sandwich and that's enough of them for couple of years now :). If you can find a lunch buffet during working days, grab it. For sure the best value for the money. The buffet has salad, bread/butter, main course with options, water(at least) and a coffee/tea as dessert.

A special note of Minniborgir restaurant, which was run by a Finnish lady and her boyfriend. I had a good pizza there in "chefs choise" style :). They had a restaurant, lodging cottages and a horse riding service.
