Andorran cuisine has been influenced by neighbouring countries, but the most typical are the traditional mountain dishes, using local products. Andorra has a great number of “bordas”. These are typical old Pyrenees barns, built from stone and wood and formerly used as shelters for the livestock, fodder and agricultural tools. No longer used today, they have been turned into welcoming restaurants where customers now enjoy an authentic mountain cuisine, such as escudella, trinxat, mountain rice, stews and snails. Visitors can also select Gourmet restaurants with their creative avant-garde cuisine and rising reputation.
