Before you head off to explore the island, a hearty breakfast is needed to fuel up your energy levels. And what better way than kick starting your day at The Tabloid?
Get a Taste of Maltese Cuisine
A Maltese themed night at AX The Palace
The island of Malta is renowned for its flavourful cuisine and the passion, love and attention to detail that goes into the preparation of each dish. Traditionally, Maltese cuisine is inspired by local ingredients, but the influence of neighbouring Mediterranean countries on local recipes is evident. Although the local cuisine shares a number of key ingredients with other countries, the Maltese approach to cooking is unique to the island. Many local dishes are rich and hearty, but, depending on the mode of preparation, the dishes are typically genuine and healthy.
The Maltese Themed Night at AX The Palace is a wonderful opportunity to taste the flavours of Malta, within the setting of a luxurious 5-star hotel. Maltese Nights take place every Monday at the 5-star The Tabloid restaurant, which is part of AX The Palace.
At first glance, you’ll be impressed by the wide variety of dishes and wines to choose from. Expect lots of fish, seafood and local cuts, as well as fresh herbs and produce, and a couple of surprises. The ambiance is perfect for a romantic evening or a warming meal with friends, or even for some quality time with yourself! The high-standard cuisine is further complemented by the calming atmosphere and the helpful staff.
To begin, let your eyes graze over the bountiful selection of antipasti – the fresh calamari salad, deep fried goat’s cheese, cauliflower fritters and roasted beef are among the locals’ favourites. Sit back and enjoy a glass of refreshing wine as you take your first bite. Next, take your pick from the local pasta dishes; the traditional ravioli cooked in a rich tomato sauce are a taste of heaven, and the octopus spaghetti is like nothing you’ve ever tasted before!
As the evening progresses, soft music plays in the background and light chatter fills the room. For your main course, you can choose between several popular Maltese dishes. From grilled swordfish with tomatoes and peppers, to braised beef olives with peas and tomato jus – the wide choice of fish and meat dishes will leave you spoiled for choice.
To end your evening on an ever higher note, try out a traditional dessert from the sweets table. The ‘Torta tal-Marmurat’ (mixed nuts and chocolate tart) and the ‘Helwa tat-Tork’ (Turk’s sweet) are a must-try for all you sweet-toothed guests.
Book your stay at AX The Palace and taste Maltese Cuisine at its finest!
Please note that themed nights are not available throughout the month of December. Themed nights will re-start as from Janaury 2020.
