Is it in Malta or on Malta? (Because it’s an island.) Who knows? But fuck it, it’s my blog so I’m sticking with in!
Being the bitterballen connoisseur that I am, I’m always on high alert if I spot bitterballen or kroketten or croquettes (or whatever they want to call them) in any other country! Same goes for Dutch food in general and it just so happens I ran into some awesome Dutch snacks in Malta which I’ll share with you now…
Graag gedaan, hoor! 😁
1. Bitterballen at Salumeria
I went to Salumeria by complete fluke. I had no idea they sold bitterballen! I’d walked past the bar before and made a note of it because it had a sign outside saying “Our beer is as cold as your ex’s heart” 😂😂
So we sat down, got the menu and there was a Dutch sharing platter on the menu!! GET IN!!!! (Turns out the owner is half Dutch!)
So if you’re looking for bitterballen in Malta, this is your place! They’re excellent bitterballen too! Served with real Dutch mustard. Just be sure to avoid the frikandellen!! Ewwwwww.
2. Stroopwafels – Strü
I don’t eat stroopwafels myself, but these look daaaaamn good and they have reviews to match! The food truck moves around daily, so be sure to check their Facebook page for their current location!
3. Belgian fries
Ok, so not technically Dutch but we’re all friends here, eh? I ran into The Belgian Fry food truck whilst exploring Sliema and I can highly recommend! They were delicious 🙂 I went for good old ‘frites met mayo’, but they have all the sauces you’d expect from a Dutch/Belgian snack shop.
Cheap as chips too! 😉 Perfect for Dutchies 😉😉 (*Runs and hides…*)
