Elvis   4 comments


Dear BJ,

I saw Elvis at the Bæjarins Beztu stand down by the harbor in Reyjavik, Iceland one summer night.

He had two pylsur with the works:

Tomat sauce

Remoulade sauce


Raw onions

Fried onions

Sinnep (sweet mustard)

Oh yeah, he got a coke.

I had two with sinnep myself. I ended up with a coke too, no Pepsi.

He carried a beat up acoustic guitar and wore a sharp black western cut jacket with rhinestones.

His sideburns were to die for.

He was absolutely convinced he was Elvis.

I wasn’t quite sure though because his shoes looked real beat up.

The lamb dog was really good.

Your Nephew,


P.S. Sif says this is the best place to get a SS pylsur from in Reykjaik. I got the Bæjarins Beztu image from this site: http://www.wemadethisourselves.com/away_games/?p=379 and they do a pretty good review.

  1. Elvis lives

  2. Did they taste better than the curry wuerst along Huettenweg??? Dad

    • No. The lamb dog is a bit different more like a bock wurst. I don’t think there anything much better than a curry wurst, except maybe an Oscar Meyer wiener stick roasted over a fire and dipped straight into a pot of Frenches mustard.
