Chinese, Sushi, Asian, fusion, and noodles; five words that have us reaching for our stomachs with hunger already. Fortunately for all of us in Malta, we are spoilt with Asian restaurants which have popped up all around the island.
Seeing as St. Julian’s is one of the busiest hubs in Malta – especially now that summer is here – we’ve decided to shout out seven Asian eateries for when you’re passing through the town. Enjoy, and sorry for the cravings.
1. Wagamama / Sako Sushi
Right next to the iconic upside down LOVE sign, located in the same venue, you’ll be able to find both Wagamama and Sako Sushi. With Sako (as the name implies) focusing on and Wagamama focusing more on traditional rice, noodle and soup dishes, you’re sure to find something you’ll fall in love with.
This Asian Pub is located in the very beginning of Paceville.
Its small entrance leads you to an Asian-themed basement brimming with a great relaxed environment, fantastic food and craft beer. Add great prices and friendly staff to the mix, and you’ve got your hands on a winner.
They also frequently attend events in their van-kitchen, so don’t be surprised if you see them out and about!
Boy is this place something special.
The food is absolutely fantastic, the staff superb, and the location could not be any better, overlooking the Spinola Bay.
Serving a mix of continental food to go along with its rendition of Asian fusion, Zest has our mouth watering every time.
Okurma has become extremely popular with the locals in recent years, and it honestly comes as no surprise.
Constantly producing high quality Japanese cuisine to go along with its great buffet offer for the real hungry customers, this place is well worth a visit for Asian foodies!
Ok, there’s no way you haven’t heard of this place.
The quality of the food is only exceeded by the sheer amount of Instagram posts you see whenever your friends visit the place.
There’s a reason why this place is ranked so highly among our hearts. Everything that should be good, is excellent, and the food is simply perfect.
Save up for a few weeks, and knock yourselves out. It’s worth it.
Feeling like sushi with a view? You’re in luck; drop by Zen for a fresh take out, and just walk on down to the sea, and hey presto.
A traditional sushi bar and teppanyaki restaurant constantly being praised by locals and foreigners alike, Zen’s new St. Julian’s outlet follows the success of their other branches at Qormi’s Pavi, Mosta’s Pama, and Luqa’s Skyparks.
7. Wok to Walk
The latest Asian eatery to show up on the island might be only three days old, but it’s already one of the island’s favourites.
After an intense hype build-up, the Amsterdam orange-box giant officially opened its doors in St. Julian’s last Thursday.
Create your own dish, and get ready for the local Asian take-out game to change.
