My first proper meal back in Europe on my first proper trip back for 6 years and I hunted down restaurants and bars in Escaldes Engordany for some “authentic Andorran food”. Sausages and beans was as authentic as it got, I’m afraid.

I crossed the border into Andorra from Barcelona in Catalonia and after checking into the Hotel Residencia Nuria I headed out in the town of Escaldes Engordany for dinner. I was actually looking for something Authentically Andorran. I was recommended Bar 120 so I headed there. It’s one of the more authentic yet expensive restaurants in town. On asking the waitress what the most traditionally Andorran meal was I was a bit disappointed that her response was that they are a mix of French and Spanish.

Anyway I opted for an Estrella beer, a massive sausage and some beans. It cost around 8 Euros so also my most expensive meal in a long time, but worth it.

I had another few snacks out in bars and restaurants in Andorra but sadly never found that local cuisine that is definite to Andorra. Here’s a video of the dinner that night:
