This blog is dedicated to Malta - my island home. My aim is not to bore you with history but to share my thoughts and a few facts together with a photo or two. For a more in -depth background of the island please go here. The purpose of this blog is not to point out the short-comings of the island. There are plenty that do that already. My wish is to show you the beauty of an island at the cross roads of the Mediterranean, a melting pot of history; a place where fact and fiction are sometimes fused to create unique myths and legends; a country that has been conquered so many times that our culture is a mish mesh of the lands that surround us and of lands far away. I confess that my greatest desire is to make you fall in love with this tiny enchanting island.

Badass Burgers – Probably the Best Burgers in Malta

Valletta on a Sunday (56)

I had been hearing rave reviews about Badass Cafe and their  burgers for almost a year. My burger expectations are always high and, more often than not, I have been disappointed with over-cooked meat that tastes like cardboard that many local restaurants tend to serve up. But this time, I was not let down. The burgers were moist, juicy and tasted just right. The accompanying fries were crispy and very tasty. Unfortunately, I was too busy eating my Aunt Elsie burger to remember to take any photos. This burger came with a Greek twist with a topping of tomatoes, black olives and feta cheese. Another plus is that the staff is friendly and efficient.  I can safely say that I have finally found my favourite burger restaurant on the island. I think that I am going to get addicted.

This is not a paid review and all opinions expressed are my own.


  1. Burger sounds really good right now.

  2. I am glad for you, but I hope that Malta does not have any of our (USA) fast-food places. I like to think of your amazing country as resistant to our hideous exports. I am reassured by the surrounding architecture in your first photo and by the many options for chocolat chaud.


  3. I don't mind a good burger every now and then!
