Icelandic Food in Australia

If you like some special Icelandic Food the following will highlight some information on what Australian goods can be used instead.  Very few if any Icelandic food items are imported into Australia.  Happy to receive some comments or feedback below. See list and photos below.

Hér má finna upplýsingar um ýmsar vörur sem hægt er að fá í Ástralíu og eru svipaðar eða geta komið í staðin fyrir allgengar íslenskar matvörur.  Ekki eru allar vörur til, þannig að við höfum líka sett in verkunar aðferðir sem hægt er að nota hér, til að útbúa svipaðann mat.  Ef þú hefur fundið eitthvað gagnlegt eða hefur upplýsingar sem geta komið öðrum að notum, láttu okkur vita og við munum bæta þeim við. Sjá lista og myndir hér fyrir neðan.

  • Jólaöl – Christmas Ale – This drink is a mixture of Appelsin (Orange drink) and Malt (MaltExtract, non alcholic).  The best replacement I’ve found is an orange flavoured drink called “Orange Crush” from Tru Blu.  Available in all grocery shops.  Mix this about half and half with Monteiths Black Beer, available in most liquor stores.  You can vary the mix to your taste, but it’s very much like Christmas Ale.
  • Prince Polo – You can find a box of Napolitanke from KRAS in may delis and fruit shops..  It is quite similar to Prince Polo..  See photo below..
