This food tour will kick off with a bang. We will start by visiting a unique, small and traditional restaurant to taste our own Maltese Ftira. We will also try our local soft drink (or our award winning beer). Then, we will head to another family-owned snack bar, renowned for its traditional Maltese appetizers, such as pastizzi. Afterward, we'll make our way to the bustling Valletta Food Market, Is-Suq Tal-Belt, where you can immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere and sample fresh local produce through a proper, local Maltese Platter. Next, we'll meander through the historic streets to explore a traditional spice shop, where you'll discover an array of Maltese spices and herbs. The shop owner may offer insights into the flavors and aromas that define Maltese cuisine. During our visit to the local spice shop we will taste the local coffee some small Maltese bites. Finally, we'll visit a charming chocolate shop where you can indulge in exquisite chocolates made in Malta and gain an understanding of the chocolate-making process. Our tour is a feast for the senses, a celebration of Maltese culinary traditions, and an opportunity to explore the heart of Valletta's food culture.
