Say hi to Nastia and James of The Grassy Hopper!
These two were such a pleasure to meet, and Nastia even made me the Golden Milk drink that my mom makes, using fresh turmeric (which I’ve never had) and my favorite Aroy-D coconut milk!
If you’re ever in Valletta for lunch, this is the place to go for sure.
The food is delicious and healthy.
As I think you’ll find, it’s pretty difficult to find healthy food at a restaurant in Malta.
The explanation I’ve been given is that people eat healthy at home and then want to indulge when they go out.
I haven’t experienced the home part, but I can tell you that most Maltese dishes I’ve found involved a lot of bread and meat and were usually fried.
Tasty, yes, but it’s a real relief for the gut to find some high quality healthy dishes at the Grassy Hopper.
And their coffee and dessert is really good, too!
