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 co-owner) and his partner Judith (a vegan).
Danny’s opened last October so it’s still a new place, yet it seems to have already attracted a following both during the week and during the weekend.
The place has an open kitchen which is always a good sign. There are vegan and vegetarian options on the menu. These include the Roasted aubergine served with fresh pomegranate, coconut cream cheese chia seeds, local rucola & home made multiseed bread.(€6.75)

There is the Coconut yogurt bowl made from coconut yogurt & frozen raspberries and mango, homemade granola, roasted almonds. (€6.75) The Nutella French toast. (€4.50). You can also ask for a Frozen mango smoothie bowl which is totally vegan
As a main dish they have the Beetroot & Bean open wrap made from wholemeal tortilla, beetroot hummus, roasted beans, lemon yogurt, lime & coriander. (€8.50)
You will also find fresh juices and smoothies. Plus a home made coconut hazelnut milk that is used for vegan teas and coffees yet is worth tasting seperately.
Oh and did I mention, they use compostable biodegradable straws.
Danny’s is open 6 days a week. Monday – Sunday 9.00 – 16.00, plus Friday 18.30 till 22.30 and Tuesdays closed.
