The shrimp pyramid at “Smørrebrød” sandwich place Jómfrúin received our coveted “Best Must-Try Dining Experience” prize in this year’s Reykjavík Grapevine’s Best of 2015 extravaganza. We’re big fans of Jómfrúin’s classic cold cut mountains, so we asked them to contribute a recipe for one of their best known open-faced sandwiches:
The Hungover Man’s Roast Beef
From Jakob Einar Jakobsson of Jómfrúin
This slice was created when a wellknown local hair stylist and media figure came to Jómfrúin one Sunday
morning after a night on the town and he says to me: “Save me!” So we did. Here’s how:
We took a slice of sunflower seed rye bread and buttered it with Icelandic butter. We then placed several slices of roast beef on there with a slick of mustard and a liberal dose of shredded horseradish. Finally we butter-fried some tomatoes and an egg and placed that on of the roast beef. We then topped it off with some black pepper and parsley. It’s a simple and powerful meal for those who need to reclaim their health and the function of their taste buds.
