Maltese cuisine is very influenced just like their language. Especially by the Turkish and Italian culture… so their most typical dishes have a mixture of both. Moreover, if you like fish, we recommend you to try lampuki, which is quite similar to gilthead and is the star dish of the island. One of the best places to taste it is Marsaxlokk. In addition to being very good area to eat, you can take a nice walk outside where the boats are the icing on these beautiful views.
Another of its best known foods is the ftira; a bread that is usually filled with tuna, tomato, olives and pickles. And, to accompany it you cannot forget a Cisk! The Maltese favorite beer.
