Andorra is one of the remotest and undiscovered places on earth. Chances are you aren’t just wandering here but you know something about its rich heritage and mountainous splendor. In our journey through this breathtaking country we found many lifestyle values that reflect our own at home and while traveling. People are outdoorsy, they love hiking, trekking and winter sports. Food is fresh and reflects a culture where making succulent dishes at home starts with wonderfully stocked supermarkets.
Renting an apartment is a great way to experience cooking for yourself in Andorra or even if you are just looking for some picnic ingredients the Pyrenees department store is the best place in all of Andorra to find a wide range of fresh and tempting ingredients from Europe and beyond. It can be found in the heart of the capital Andorra la Vella on Avinguda de Meritxell 21.
On the top-floor there is a cafeteria and restaurant. Prices are very fair (not cheap) and the food offerings are eclectic. One can find hot foods, salads mixtures of greens, grains, soups and purees. Fill the dish you want to select, grab a drink and check out of the healthy buffet or order something from the prepaid restaurant menu.
On the lower floor, the well-stocked supermarket has not one but several varieties of fruits and vegetables, exotic fruits, spices and virtually any range of food style you can think of. It seems with the distance and isolation Andorra has there is a focused effort on bringing in the best of the world outside which makes for lovely meals and selections.
