When I first moved to Malta four months ago, I had no idea what braġjoli were (and that’s coming from someone who has tried most international dishes and delicacies). Now, I can’t get enough.
Braġjoli, also known as beef olives, are a traditional Maltese dish consisting of rolls of beef which are then stuffed.
Anyway, I absolutely love them, and here are seven places in Malta where you can find and fall in love with them yourself.
1. Nenu the Artisan Baker, Valletta
Wouldn’t expect anything but the best from Nenu when it comes to traditional Maltese dishes!
2. Ta’ Kris, Sliema
How good do these look? Yummy!
3. Il-Malti, Sliema
Rolled beef steak with smoked ham, minced pork, breadcrumbs, cheeselets, hard boiled eggs and parseley. Served in a tomato and pea sauce.
4. Sharma Ethnic Cuisine, St Julian’s
Get. In. My. Mouth. Now.
5. La Maltija, St Julian’s
That’s how they roll!
6. Diar il-Bniet
Slow cooked beef olive stew stuffed with mince meat, boiled egg, fresh parsley and bacon at a restaurant that’s known for being authentic AF.
7. United Restaurant, Mġarr
Mġarr is the home of all things traditionally Maltese, and United’s braġjoli are definitely no exception.
Rolled veal escalope filled with gammon, minced beef and pork, cheese and spinach with a marsala sauce.
