What to eat in Malta

Pastizzi Pastries

After flying from Cork to Malta, we recommend you first try some pastizzi pastries, which are a traditional savoury pastry which can be filled with either ricotta or mushy peas. They are delicious, so it’s no wonder they are a local delicacy! There are many fantastic unique Maltese dishes that should be tried while you’re there. For example, it should be a crime to visit Malta and not try the local sourdough bread! With a crunchy exterior and a soft interior, you’ll never feel the same about bread ever again. The food in Malta is absolutely delicious!

Lampuki Pie

Most traditional and local Maltese food depends on the seasons. During your visit to Malta, you should look out for the gorgeous Lampuki pie, which is a fish pie. It’s a favourite for the locals, especially since the fish is always nice and fresh! It would be the perfect meal to have after spending the day exploring the beautiful towns and beaches of Malta. Rabbits are a massive dish in Malta, most popular fried and served with spaghetti or served as a stew. As this is an unusual choice of dish, it’s worth trying while in Malta.
