A taste of Malta!

You simply cannot visit Malta without trying one of the island’s top foods, aka pastizzi!

Typically stuffed with ricotta cheese or mashed peas, pastizzi are a diamond shape savoury pastry that are simply loved by many tourists and locals alike.

One would typically find these foods in little take–away shops alongside the streets of Malta, locally known as pastizzeriji.

But who makes the best ones?

In an effort to find Malta’s best place for pastizzi, we have asked GuideMeMalta’s readers where their go to spots are and here are the results!

Ta’ Roger, Zejtun

This is by far, the place who got the most votes. The freshly made pastizzi from Ta’ Roger have often been dubbed as being the absolute best!

Serkin Crystal Palace, Rabat

Located right outside the historic city of Mdina, this pastizzerija is open 24 hours, seven days a week.
