Ftajjarija opens in Spinola Bay

Traditional Maltese cooking is back in the limelight with the opening of Gululu’s Kċina Maltija u Ftajjarija, which uses a wood burning oven for ftajjar prepared the old-school way.

To accommodate this new section of the restaurant, Gululu, of Spinola Bay, St Julian’s, has expanded upstairs.

The Ftajjarija houses two dining rooms with a long terrace overlooking the picturesque Spinola Bay, so that patrons can relax and enjoy their meal against one of the most beautiful backdrops in Malta.

Julian Sammut of Gululu said this new feature at the restaurant, and the inclusion of the ftira on the menu, were a natural development for the whole concept and part of its long-term plan to serve typical Maltese food, both traditional and contemporary.

Ftajjar are baked daily and at lunchtime on Saturdays, Sundays and feast days.

Some of the original names given to the ftajjar include Kampanjola, Ta’ Gerit, Lippina, Iż-Żaqqieqa, Il-Laħmija, Pulpetta, L-Għarbija and Ftira Moħxija (closed stuffed ftira).

Patrons can now also access Gululu from Spinola Road. For reservations call 2133 3431.
