Malta’s favourite steakhouse just turned 24 and to celebrate, they’ve overhauled their entire concept for… sushi? Well, not exactly… it’s actually called Que-Shi – an amalgamation of barbeque and sushi – and serves to satisfy even the wildest of cravings.
It is a certainty in life that no matter how long you and your klikka spend debating over where to head for dinner, there will never be a unanimous decision when it comes to what everyone actually feels like eating. Tex Mex’s latest venture has delivered a solution: give. them. everything.
Nobody throws parties like the TEX MEX Crew! What fun we had celebrating our 24th Anniversary at our new venue in the heart of Spinola! A big well done to our special guests, patrons, press, media, djs, Live musicians, staff, managers, bosses, chefs & all of you for your continued support. We look forward to host you for many more years to come! Tag your self, your friends and share! Enjoy our after event movie!

OK, so it’s not exactly offering everything, but it is close enough.
Everyone loves sushi and everyone loves charred meat. Put the two together and you have one of the best flavour trips your mouth will ever take. Sticky, slightly vinegared rice meets meat worthy of an Asgard feast.
Your chicken drummettes have gone down a treat, you’re ready for your three-blend beef burger… but wait! You’re feeling adventurous today. Why not feed that hunger with a deep-fried teriyaki chicken ball? How does a pulled pork rice roll sound? Slap some crispy bacon on that plain-jane salmon roll – you know you want to.
Each serving of que-shi comes with the choice of three dips: wasabi mayo for the OG sushi fans, teriyaki for the seasoned-taste-travellers or a honey sriracha for literally everyone… because sriracha.
While still sticking to their guns when it comes to barbequed meat, Tex Mex has widened its scope with an Asian influence over the years and as well as their new cold rice and warm meat love-child, they’re offering items like Poke bowls. Don’t worry – their island famous ribs are all on the menu in Spinola, too!
Nobody does over-the-top quite like Tex Mex has been doing for almost a quarter of a century, and they certainly kept to expectations with their anniversary party.
We were lucky enough to get a chance to pop in and check out what all the fuss has been about since they opened their new venue in Spinola Bay. And we were so impressed, that we thought we’d honour their marvellous milestone by showing off 24 of their dishes (we would pick the best if we could, but neither can you, so we won’t).
Tex Mex’s classic three-blend beef is here to stay, but there’s a new kid on the burger block in the form of the Connoisseur – four cuts of prime beef, minced on-site and seared to perfection (read: medium-rare). Cheese is optional, free of charge, and highly recommended.
DJ Mykill kept the speakers shaking from behind the decks while food flowed from the kitchen in a constant stream, wowing the stomachs of every partygoer. Even Gaia couldn’t hold in the excitement of seeing two staple cuisines come together in the ultimate food mashup we didn’t know we needed.
Ryan’s left some pretty big boots to fill when they closed their doors in St Julian’s, but Tex Mex Que-Shi have done a great job of making sure those boots were well walked-in! Here are 24 mouth-watering items available at select Tex Mex locations around Malta:
1. The Full Blessed Breakfast
2. Cajun Chicken Breasts
3. Sizzling Octopus
4. Crispy Sushi (part of the Que-Shi line)
5. Crispy Calamari
6. Buffalo Wings

24. And what would a celebration be without… cake!
Better yet, Tex Mex chefs also prepare their own special Tex Mex ice cream in-house – and it is not gelato!
Tex Mex creates premium American creamery-style frozen custard with home-made ripples and bakes created by our team of chefs. They have specially adapted your favorite American classics, sure to tickle your sweet tooth, aside from Tex Mex staples like Mexican vanilla bean, strawberries and cream and triple Belgian chocolate decadence.
The Tex Mex brand has also expanded to Marsaxlokk where they opened their flagship venue, Tex Mex South and Oyster Lounge. Tex Mex South proved to be an instant success. With more of a family-friendly atmosphere, their well-known dishes and live entertainment. Oyster Lounge, on the other hand, delivers more of a club lounge atmosphere, serving sushi you can enjoy on one of their VIP sofas and background music provided by top local and international DJs.
