Pastrami. Oh how we love this pink, cured, herbed brisket of beef (or turkey).

OK, so let's get real; we doubt that Malta will ever get anything close to the pastramis you see in Jewish delis (or Katz in NYC) but we have searched the island to bring you pastrami that will satisfy your tastebuds for sure.

If you're looking for pastrami in Malta, these six places are your best bet. You're welcome.

1. The Pulled Meat Company

Valletta, Gżira

The guys behind some of Malta's best pulled pork serve a pastrami brioche.

Come here for a thinly-cut pastrami with wholegrain mustard-honey sauce, pickled beetroot, rucola and fried eggs.

2. Fat Louie's

St Julian's

Fat Louie's serves a tongue pastrami with sourdough bread, pickles and mustard. Classic meaty madness from the Diacono brothers.

3. Salumeria


The pastrami sandwich in this joint is traditional and tasty. Because if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But definitely devour it!

4. Pit Master Authentic Smokehouse


Pit Master gives you three pastrami options; two in sandwich form (one smoked and one Reuben) and the other as a main... featuring 200 glorious grams of meat.

5. EAT

Wrap your lips around the turkey pastrami sandwich from this adored street food truck that specialises in meat. You won't regret it.

6. Subway

Gżira, Sliema, Msida, Paceville, Paola

Believe it or not, Subway do an amazing pastrami sandwich (tried and tested). It's flavourful and tender, and the meat is pretty in pink for sure!

BONUS: Levantina bistro, Birkirkara

Smoked beef brisket spiced with baharat.

OK, so it's technically not pastrami per se but it's pastrami's very close relative and it looks bomb AF!
