After wandering the seafront, I stopped in The Local, which sits on the road along the sea. Not surprisingly, fish is a staple on the menu here, but there are also Italian and traditional Maltese dishes. I decided to try mizet, a cold plate of Maltese specialties. My favorite of these was the bread, spread with tomato paste and olive oil and topped with sliced olives and chopped onion. There were several types of Maltese sausages and cheeses, olives, tomatoes, greens and a small helping of bean pate and Maltese crackers. The bean pate was my least favorite of the lot, but nonetheless I enjoyed my first taste of traditional Maltese fare. The Local/Xlukkajr Restaurant, Xatt is-Sajjieda, Marsaxlokk; phone +356 21 652 109.
By bus, it’s just a bit over 30 minutes from Valletta: take bus 27, which operates about every half hour between 6:30am and 7:30pm.
