culinary highlights of an easter holiday – MALTA


oooooohh how i love holidays. ha – who doesn’t?! but this holiday i enjoyed especially because my whole family came over to malta from austria to visit us on the rock. everybody who knows me or any other part of my family knows our main common goal: enjoy the culinary pleasures of life – jippee!!!!

piadina cafe
i’ve written about it – i know! but it’s one of my all time favourites 😀 first, for me the best coffee in town. second, i just loooove the piadine (this time we tried out 3 different ones, and i still like mine best – ha!). third, only super fresh ingredients with a special twist (like the salad below). and fourth, but one of the most important criteria, adorable people! thanks & love to oana & jada!

best coffee in town!one of the piadina we had - this is my fav: grilled veggies with provolonejust the freshest ingredients

yacht cafe @ msida marina
home made falafel @ yacht cafewhat a lovely cute little place! after it was recommended to me by another of my foodie friends i had to check it out. said, done. maria from lebanon, the owner, and her maltese husband run this place with lots of charme. super friendly and great, fresh stuff! first time i had a home made falafel in malta which was just delicious. definitely will come back!

chez philippe @ gzira
if i had to chose my favourite restaurant for a great dinner in casual and nice athomosphere – it would be chez philippe. went there for the third time and was not disappointed! from the starters, to the mains and not to forget the deserts (go have the trio of creme brulée! do it!). i really enjoy my food there. tipp: in my opinion, this is a meat place, so forget the pasta – have a proper piece of meat. it’s gonna be gorgeous 🙂

duck breastquail - my fav of that night!lamb

lulu café @ l-ibragg
another recommendation which turned out great! perfect for a coffee or tea with some lovely sweets. all home made by the owner’s wife who is also host at lulu restaurant in st. julians. i think i’ve never seen such a big choice of home made cupcakes in malta so far! the easter cupcakes were nearly to cute to eat, but finally we managed 😉 also nice for savoury snacks and – again – really nice service staff!! this was a really good month i have to recognize 😉
