After a series of well-attended catering events hosted atop a rooftop terrace overlooking St. Paul’s Bay, Cosmic Food now has a permanent venue. It is run by a young duo devoted to vegan food, taking pride in finally having made a vegan night out on the island less of a headache. Consciously experimental, guests are presented with an ever-changing menu of homemade vegan and vegetarian Asian-fusion dishes to be enjoyed in a chilled, lounge atmosphere.
Highly regarded as one of the island’s best choices when looking for a quick, healthy lunch, The Grassy Hopper is a casual and affordable vegan and vegetarian venue in the center of the capital city, Valletta. Conserving food’s nutrients and offering options reflecting a balanced diet have ranked among the highest of priorities when preparing their super-food rich menu. Favorites include any of the generously portioned veggie burgers and eclectic mix of refreshing, organically-sourced green smoothies.
Although Sharma also serves some meat dishes, its wide selection of vegetarian-friendly options makes it impressive. Both the decor and menu reflect a varied range of influences, from Greek to Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine. Prices are on the higher end, not least for its location at the center of the country’s old medieval capital, Mdina, and the views to be enjoyed from its roof terrace.
