HEIMABLÍDNI: DINE IN THE HOMES OF THE FAROESE
phonetically spelled as “hi-mɑ-blyd-ne”
Arguably the best way to really experience any culture is to integrate with the locals. And what better way to do this than over a delicious, traditional meal?
The Faroese phrase “heimablídni” translates directly as “home hospitality”, and all across the islands you can enjoy authentic and intimate dining experiences in people’s homes. In addition to being served traditional homemade Faroese food, you will also hear interesting stories that relate to that particular part of the country or village.
These underground restaurants, with rates sometimes as little as DKK 330 (approx. €45) per person, offer you the opportunity to sample new food, often dissimilar to the food usually served in restaurants, in personal environments that give you a proper taste of Faroese culture.
Sometimes a perfect stranger is the best dinner host.
