When you visit Malta, you should definitely try the traditional Maltese pastizzi! They are made with crispy and fresh puff pastry in the form of a bulging envelope. There are three popular types of pastizzi: ricotta, peas and anchovy.
To taste these delicious pastizzi you need to buy them from pastizzerias. There are small shops with fresh pastizzi in every town and village in Malta and they attract not only tourists but also the locals with their breathtaking smell.
The pastizzi are always hot and just out of the oven!
Locals love to enjoy them both on cool days with hot, sweet tea or on hot summer days with the national Maltese soft drink Kinnie.
Everyone loves pastizzi! Be sure to taste them hot, aromatic and just out of the oven!
