Pastizzi: A Maltese snack

While in Malta, our tour guide suggested that we make sure to try a local snack known as pastizzi.  The pastizzi is a pastry filled with either ricotta cheese or mushy peas.  You can find these from local cafes or street vendors, and they cost less than a euro a piece.  We bought ours to try from the snack stand in the Upper Barracka Gardens before heading back to the ship.  While it was tasty, I don’t think we’d have to have one every day.  But they are definitely worth the try; we had a ricotta one.
