Reasons for trip

The old market hall in the centre of Valletta has been completely renovated and now houses lots of eating places on ground floor, tables and chairs inside and outside, and an excellent market hall for fresh produce downstairs.

We tried the freshly-made pasta and sauces at Impasta, one of the small food kiosks where you can see them cooking your food. Choose a sauce and type of pasta – Les tried the penne and chilli in tomato sauce which appeared to get hotter after each mouth full! I went for the carbonara so a milder choice of course.

It is a great system, order and pay and they give you an electronic pager which flashes when your food is ready to collect. You can sit anywhere within the Market Hall so don’t have to stand around the counter waiting and can buy your drinks from the central bar area.

The food was good, maybe a bit too salty for us, and there was plenty to eat. Only issue was that the two meals did not arrive at the same time so, Les was half way through his by the time mine was ready. Not bad prices at €11 and €10.50 each with a glass of white wine at €4.90 each. Worth a visit for the fresh meat counter and delicatessen downstairs (lovely sun-dried tomatoes), and to try out some of the other menus.
