That is why VeggyMalta – Malta Meat Free Week came out with the theme “you’re the only meat I’d eat”! After all what better way to celebrate love by sparing an animal’s life. So Veggy Malta has come up with some suggestions...

We tried Burger King’s new Rebel Whopper

We tried out Burger King’s new plant-based burger, the Rebel Whopper; 100% Whopper 0% Beef.  This burger arrived in Malta in November before it hit the counter in places like the UK (where it has been launched in January to coincide with Veganuary … but more about that later on). Some info about the Rebel Whopper. The burger is produced for Burger King by The Vegetarian Butcher. If you order it as it is from the counter,...

The Tiffin Box

In the midst of the other restaurants in the Plaza Shopping Center food hall is The Tiffin Box. This might be quite a peculiar name for an Indian restaurant however the name is inspired by an Indian lunch box. In India, there is a unique transport system were dozens of these tiffin boxes are delivered with bicycles or with the metro train system by dabbawalas in the Mumbai region. Every morning the wife would usually cook a meal for...

Naan Bar in Valletta

Upon entering the doors of this little gem, located on the corner of Old Bakery Street in Valletta, you will be blown away by the authentic design and warmth of the place. Expect colour, beautifully painted walls of Indian wildlife, exceptional service, an extensive menu with plenty of vegan options clearly labelled, and wonderfully executed tantalising Indian dishes. To start, we were presented with an ‘Amuse Bouche’, which offered...

A vegan feast at Naar

Going vegan and going green A few weeks ago I was kindly invited to try out the all-new vegan menu at Naar in Balluta. Yes, Naar has launched a whole vegan menu! They still have their regular menu however the Head Chef has decided to branch out, this means that vegan diners (or reducetarians who want a vegan option) are now spoilt for choice as opposed to having to scout out that 1 nearly vegan dish and ask the kitchen if they can...

Vegan delights – Choco Kebab Cafe

Finding Vegan Just off the main square in Bugibba there is a little café with a sign that says ‘Vegan Menu’. Choco Kebab Café. Don’t let the name fool you. There is much more to this little café than meets the eye! Jerry, the owner of Choco Kebab Café, greets us and tells us a little about the story behind the vegan menu at Choco Kebab Café. Jerry has always been a business owner, but the reason behind the vegan menu...

Foam and Fork – raising the bar in Marsascala

Thank you, next. Over the past few years, we have seen a slow but rising trend in vegan and vegetarian offerings in the local food scene in Malta. However, I feel that there is still much to be desired and I think we will continue to see cool, trendy and vegan-friendly places pop up across Malta in the coming years. The demand is there and while you do find veggie or vegan options in most restaurants nowadays, it is normally an...

Becky’s Kitchen – Not just burgers!

Becky’s Kitchen A couple of weeks ago, my partner and I visited Becky’s Kitchen in Naxxar for a quick dinner on a Monday night. I must admit that I drive past Becky’s Kitchen many times a week and I have been dying to try their veggy burgers. Walking into Becky’s kitchen you feel the cool, young vibe immediately. We were greeted by a smiling member of staff who walked us through the order process. Becky’s...

Coffee Circus Qawra – a place to chill

Veggy Malta went to visit Coffee Circus Qawra, or rather I could say I went to visit Gilbert and Alana in their new coffee shop. Whilst they still run around with their mobile coffee shops, they have parked themselves on the Qawra promenade. The shop has a warm feeling with lovely henna art, nicely painted chairs, art and a general feeling of homeliness. It is not one of those coffee shops that transmits the feel drink and leave, on...

Fairtrade Café by Say It in Paola

Veggy Malta visited Fairtrade Café by Say It in Paola. Since I originally hail from Paola, I was curious to see see this shop that opened in October 2018. It is not in the square, or what was a square before all the trees were uprooted to make way for the new sun-baked pedestrian zone. You can find it in the road that takes you to Tarxien. At the top end of the Paola shopping zone. I want to emphasise that Fairtrade Café  is run by a...

Balance Bowl in Gzira is more than just a vegan eatery

Veggy Malta visited Balance Bowl, a vegan eatery on the strand in Gzira that welcomes everybody! I met up with Filiz and Ewelina, two of the girl power trio that run the place. The three friends (2 Poles and 1 Brit) all travelled to Malta in the past 5 years. They share a passion for food and thought of opening an eatery (originally in the UK), but (fortunately) choose to open shop here. Whilst Ewelina was busy in the kitchen I did...

It looks, feels and tastes like a bloody beef burger!

Veggy Malta had already visited Le Bistro at the Radisson Blu in Paceville some months ago, yet this time we were invited to try out the new Beyond Burger. Let me be explicit, if you don’t like the taste of meat then don’t eat this burger and choose their vegan burger! The burger came well presented in a big bun, fries and sauce. Nothing special there, yet after tasting, if I wasn’t sure I asked for the vegan burger...

Danny’s Kitchen & Deli

Veggy Malta visited Danny’s Kitchen & Deli in Qormi. To be quite honest I didn’t know what to expect when entering the place given that it is located on the main road (in front of Crosscraft). I associated the location more with a workers bar rather than a deli. I was pleasantly surprised. The ambiance inside the restaurant could not be further away from my mental image. There I met up with JP Debono (chef and...

Emma’s Kitchen – a good choice of vegan and vegetarian food in San Gwann

Veggy Malta went to Emma’s Kitchen in San Gwann and had a chat with Emma Warrington about the choice of plant based food (and vegetarian) there is on the food board. After all you would expect a good selection of vegan options with half the staff being vegan! Emma, an architect by profession, seems to have found her passion in the kitchen. (I don’t blame her… looking at the state of our country).  In October 2016 she...
