4 Must-Try Foods in Europe

Updated: Apr 6

Whether you're a seasoned foodie or are taking your first steps into immersing yourself in the vast (and delicious!) world of European dishes, there are a few must-try foods that you have to add to your upcoming Europe itinerary. Europe is a large continent spanning over 4 million square miles and 44 countries. And while your food-loving heart will be happy no matter where you travel, we're breaking down a few famous and must-try dishes that you can't miss on your next trip to Europe!

Carbonara in Italy

Pizza, pasta, gelato, oh my! Whatever you decide to eat in Italy, you really can't go wrong. That said, carbonara pasta, specifically in Rome, is life changing. Carbonara is a simple pasta dish made with eggs, hard cheese, black pepper, and cured pork. It's creamy, salty, and the most comforting dish when you're in the mood for carbs. Although carbonara is simple to make, you have to try it in the founding city of Rome to get the authentic Italian experience!

Paella in Spain

Paella is one of Spain's most famous dishes for a good reason! It's a rice dish that traditionally includes beans and rabbit, sausage, or chicken. It's known for its bright yellow color, thanks to the added saffron. Seafood paella is also a great option that is usually loaded with mussels, shrimp, and clams!

Croissants in France

Did you know that croissants originated in Austria? But nowadays, the French have perfected them and made them one of their must-try foods! Croissants are made with a thin dough layered with butter that is rolled into the famous half-moon shape. Croissants are a great morning snack and pair perfectly with your daily coffee.

Fish and chips in the United Kingdom

Nothing screams the U.K. like a hot basket of fish and chips. This dish consists of battered and fried fish (usually cod, flounder, or halibut, depending on the season) served alongside crispy chips or fries. Fish and chips can be found across the U.K. and are known to be a popular pub or takeout food.

No matter where you travel in Europe, you'll come across some mouthwatering dishes and cuisines. Pro tip: always ask the locals where to go as they'll often point you to the city's hidden gems!
