Warm Mediterranean weather, crystal clear waters, high quality dive sites, and unique travel experiences make Malta a new favorite up-and-coming tourist destination. It boasts unique prehistoric temples, tombs under the Romans, medieval towns, and the extraordinary legacy of the Knights of St. John (Knights of Malta) who ruled the island from 1530-1798 ......
When it comes to sightseeing and history, there has been no shortage of talk about Malta, but less praise for its food. This is because it is a land that has been divided by various occupiers, Italian, French, English, Arabian... Throughout the islands of Malta, there are specialties everywhere
The rabbit in Mosta
The fenek (rabbit) is the typical Maltese main dish. The islanders like to sauté, roast and stew rabbit in olive oil and eat it with pasta or baked pies, so there are 18 different ways to eat it. In the Mosta region, northwest of Valletta, you can eat delicious rabbit meat while watching a folkloric dance and song show.
Seafood in Marsaxlokk
Malta is a Mediterranean island and seafood is a natural specialty. Marsaxlokk, at the southernmost tip of the island, is one of the three largest harbors in the country, and the beautiful scenery of fishing boats is perfect for a meal! A weekly seafood celebration is held here, with a wide variety of fish and prawns, addictive!
Cheese on Gozo Island
Rustic living, farm-grown vegetables, olive oil, cheese made from sheep's milk ...... everything is made with fresh ingredients, which is the most popular reason for tourists. I must mention the beach dining experience offered by Rew Rew restaurant, near the Mġarrix-Xini beach, the very place where Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt spent their honeymoon.
Ethnic snacks in Rabat town
The Maltese national snack is called pastizzi and is produced in Rabat on the island of Malta. The crispy crust is wrapped in layers of peas, spices or ricotta cheese, making it very tasty. Pastizzi are made on site at the Crystal Palace in Rabat town, and there is a special cave cafe nearby that is perfect for afternoon tea.
Mdina's small bread sandwiches
Known as the "City of Nobility," Mdina's tapas ftira is considered Malta's signature snack. Stuffed with olives, sorrel and anchovies, it is filled with toasted traditional Maltese bread and dipped in a rich tomato sauce made with sundried tomatoes and rosemary.
