Food: 5 Must-Try Andorran Dishes

05 Jun 2019
Andorran traditional food is mainly Catalan, with some influences from the French and Spanish cuisine. There are a few typical Andorran dishes you should try during your visit:

Escudella

Widely known as Andorra’s national dish. This is mainly a winter dish, served in the cold months and on holidays. It’s a rich, hearty stew, containing a base of broth with cooked pasta, pulses, and different vegetables. The traditional Escudella also contains a few different kinds of meat – sausages, chicken, meatballs, and pork. Almost every restaurant in Andorra offers its version of the meal – some of them more traditional, and some – very modernized.

Cargols

You may recognise by the name of this dish that it is indeed snails. Andorran restaurants serve the snails mostly oven-cooked, with olive oil and a special kind of garlic mayonnaise.

Trucha a la Andorrana

A grilled fish – usually trout or salmon – wrapped in pork ham. Andorra doesn't have a coastline, so fish dishes in the country are mostly made with freshwater fish from the local rivers.

Embotits

A delicious Andorran homemade sausage, which comes in a variety of forms. It’s usually made of pork, spiced with salt, red or black pepper.

Crema Andorrana

The Andorran version of the famous French crème brûlée. The difference is basically that instead of the burned sugar top, the Andorrans use some freshly whipped, thick cream.
