Cuisine of Comino Island for gourmets. Places for dinner - best restaurants

Comino Despite their small sizes, Comino and Gozo can offer the travelers a lot of places to try really tasty dishes of Malta cuisine.

The cuisine of Gozo and Comino does not differ from the Maltese cuisine – the same combination of West and East traditions. Prickly pear cactus fruit is really popular here. If you want, you can pick them yourself. Just don’t forget some thick gloves, otherwise, you will have to dig hundreds of needles out of your hands. You should buy the fruits that have already been peeled. As there are a lot of pits in a fruit, it’s better to drink the juice from a prickly pear. If you want to try the local cuisine, dishes made from a rabbit, called fenek, and octopus are a must. Copyright
