We took the food tour on Wednesday evening (moved from the afternoon to the evening due to the heat) in Mdina.
What a treat! We started off with pastizzis filled with either cheese or a pea mixture and a local tea. I don’t even like tea, but I really enjoyed this tea! After that, we visited another restaurant and had a cheese, meat and veggie tray with sun-dried tomatoes, sausage, two types of cheese, and a bean spread, which were quite good. The next restaurant was our main entree and we had rabbit with roasted potatoes. I’m not a huge fan of rabbit, but my husband loved it. Finally, we had our dessert at another restaurant, which was date puffs drizzled with honey, and a small (less than a shot glass) glass of the restaurant’s own orange liqueur made from their own oranges. That was delicious! All of the foods that we ate were typical Maltese foods, which is what we were hoping they would be.
However, more than the food, we loved hearing the history of Malta and Mdina, specifically. Our tour guide, Nick, was like a walking history book! He was able to answer all of our questions and we learned so much about Malta!
So…if you enjoy tasting unique foods from a specific country and learning history at the same time, this food tour is the way to go! We would highly recommend it!
