Sushi Timeeee!

Okurama, is hands down the best sushi place, in my humble opinion. Ever. It’s in St Julians and there’s actually two places, one is called International Taste and it’s a bit more on the posh side (the ambiance of the place). I’ve been to both places and I cannot decide which one is better. There are slight difference in the menu but they are both great. The only thing that I did not really enjoy is the main dishes, or at least it could have been my poor choice. But the sushi is really good. It’s not chunky, it’s not too sticky and it’s properly made and presented, which, in my opinion, when it comes to sushi – that is a must.

It’s also not too expensive when it comes to going out for good quality sushi in the island. Make sure how much you want to stuff your face with sushi as the buffet may get you in a tricky situation. Do not order too much sushi if you know you cannot eat it all as you would have to pay for the pieces which you did not eat. I agree with this. Why waste sushi? Thousands, if not millions or billions of people are starving to death and you are wasting food? Tsk tsk. Good on you, Okurama.

Sometimes opting for the al a carte option is better than the buffet – money wise. But again, it all depends on how much you can eat.

I’ve been to this place a million times now and I’ve gone to other sushi places, but this is definitely my favourite.

Carolina’s Petit Cafe

This lovely chic little place is situated in Lija, Malta. It’s a few minutes drive from where I live so I like going to this place if I want to have coffee or afternoon tea in style and in a quiet environment, away from the hustle and bustle. It’s a relatively new place, close to Lija’s church (central).

The desserts and milkshakes are super yummy! And everything is homemade, from the cakes to the food too. Ideal to go with a friend who you haven’t seen in ages to catch up and take a selfie with a piece of cake or a cupcake in view -winkwink-.

If you’re into Posh

Karak is an exclusive restaurant in the heart of Valencia, Spain. The menu changes every day. You have to reserve a place in order to get into this gem. To my astonishment, the establishment called me in the morning to ask whether I am allergic to certain foods. I thought that it was rather nice, no restaurant that I’ve reserved a place before asked this, let along call to make sure of it!

This place offers a selection of foods and as you can see, the attention to detail matters, big time. A waiter is assigned with you to explain what you will be eating and which beverage goes with the food served. Everything is fresh and attentive. One may think that it’s weird to mix certain ingredients together, but trust me, the chefs know exactly what they are doing to give you the best culinary experience.

Highly recommended and for an exclusive place, it is not highly expensive. (€55 per person excluding beverages)

In my personal opinion, Karak is a place where I will always remember for eating an extensive variety of food. I can say that it’s a never before experience, in terms of restaurants that I have been to. When in Valencia, I highly suggest for you, dear reader, to visit!

Mgarr United Bar & Restaurant

42197995_10218049524766582_1137936810387701760_nThis a local one! It’s located in the north of the Island. If you go to Mgarr, chances are that you will end up eating typical homemade food. For starters, the portions are massive and  the food tastes exactly to that cooked in a typical Maltese household.

Mgarr United Bar & Restaurant may slightly differ from the presentation of their plates. In other restaurants where Maltese food is served tend to lack a bit of presentation, however United makes sure to present their plates in a very sophisticated yet house-y way.

The cocktails are great too! They all include fresh fruit. In summer, you’d appreciate a cold drink like it.

The Bar and Restaurant is located just after the Mgarr Parish Church, right at the corner. You will not miss it!

Highly recommended to try out fresh Maltese dishes, for a work dinner or just a night out with the family. Yes, this place is also child friendly.

Now, if you will excuse me, I’m off to continue eating some horse meat  – it’s the best. The cooking of the meat is so tender and fresh! Bye!

 

Bam Bar!

One cannot simply go to Taormina and not have a granita at Bam Bar. Personally, it’s one of my favourite places to go when in Taormina and the granita is simply the best!

The brioche that is severed with the semi-frozen desert is just as good. It’s not soggy, but a really fresh product. At first, I found it odd, being served a brioche and a granita at the same time but in reality it’s simply tasty! And also, I believe that it’s a Sicilian tradition.

I highly recommend this little Granita place in the narrow streets of Taormina. It’s in a side street and I had to find it on google maps, but it’s not so far from when you enter the village from the main gate.

The place is ‘an attraction’ in itself. The tables and the place are colourful. To put it simply, it’s not an average place. It’s welcoming and the staff are nice too.

It’s calmer in Winter time but in Summer, you’d be lucky if you get a table quickly. Usually you have to wait for a few minutes. It is worth the wait though!

The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Food and eating are an important aspect to one’s life journey. Well, I can speak for myself, it definitely is.

It’s not about what one likes to eat, it’s just an experience altogether. The places that we look for to eat out plays an important part on this experience.

Therefore, I will be recommending places as well as the food that they offer.

I hope that you will find my blog to be of help whenever you go out to dine!

Much love,

S.
