4 | Eat some pastizzi and enjoy a cold pint of Cisk
Pastizzi are a type of cheap, flaky pockets of pastry filled with ricotta or mashed peas that the Maltese love to treat themselves to. Many locals like to enjoy their pastizzi with a glass of tea or an ice-cold pint of Cisk, a local beer.
BONUS: Don’t miss out on the tasty Maltese ftira – a delicious sandwich made of local Maltese bread, olive oil, tomato paste, tuna, capers, olives, and onions!
5 | Experience a traditional Maltese festa, or ‘village feast’
Each town and village has its own patron saint, and a yearly feast to celebrate that saint. Streets are filled with food stalls, toy vendors, and all the candy floss you could need, and the firework displays are always spectacular. This is the perfect time to have fun, meet locals, and enjoy a real sense of the Maltese community spirit.
