Vegan-friendly Restaurants in Gzira

Vegan-friendly Restaurants in Gzira, Malta

During my short visit to Malta, I have been to two locations that happened to have vegan-friendly options in their menu. One location is Bugibba, which I featured a few weeks ago. The other is Gzira. I know around 3 vegan-friendly restaurants in Gzira but till now I only had the chance to try one. The other two were somehow not available on the day. So today I will be listing the one I went to, as as much as possible I want this list to be also a recommendation. If I don’t like an eatery I wouldn’t bother to list it, at least that is my new policy. If I get the chance to visit more in the upcoming months, I will update this list accordingly.

Balance Bowl

Few months or weeks before my favourite 100% vegan restaurant, The Grassyhopper closed, Balance Bowl opened. If I am not mistaken, at the time Balance Bowl was not a fully vegan restaurant. I think it was vegetarian with vegan options. However, nowadays they went fully vegan. I don’t know if it is because it’s 100% vegan or the tasty vegan food, but Balance Bowl somehow reminds me a bit of The Grassyhopper.

There is a new Grassyhopper in Gżira. The first all-vegan restaurant in Malta, The Grassyhopper, might have closed two years ago but there is a new restaurant that reminds me of it. I am talking about the all-vegan restaurant #BalanceBowl in Gżira. During my last Malta visit, I was aiming to visit at least 2 all-vegan or vegan-friendly restaurants in Gżira, since I am rarely there but due to finding Foam & Fork closed and Dr Juice having kitchen problems, I visited Balance Bowl twice. This means I had the opportunity to try two of their dishes. ☺️ . 🌱 MUSHROOM EXTRAVAGANZA WITH CHEEZE DIP 💭 I am a messy eater, especially with burgers. Although this burger wasn't easy for me to eat, it was delicious. I ordered it as I wanted something as homemade as possible at the same time filling. As I said I loved how it tastes. 🌱 VEGAN: YES 🌾 GLUTEN: Also available as gluten-free. 🥜 SOYA: YES (tamari sauce). 💰 €9.45 🤷🏻‍♀️ ORDER AGAIN: YES . 🌱 CLASSIC HOT DOG WITH TOMATO SAUCE DIP 💭 I ordered this mainly to try the Beyond Sausage as on my side of Germany I only sometimes find the Beyond Burger from the Beyond range. To tell you the truth I did not like this hot dog much. First, the taste of mustard was a bit strong for me and secondly the sausage. Beyond's burger taste like how I remember a meat burger to taste. However, their sausage doesn't taste like how I remember meat to taste. 🌱 VEGAN: YES 🌾 GLUTEN: YES 💰 €11.95 🤷🏻‍♀️ ORDER AGAIN: NO . 📍@balance_bowl 🇲🇹 LOCATION: Gżira, Malta 🌱 100% VEGAN: Yes 🏠 EATERY: Vegan Restaurant 👩🏻‍🍳 SERVICE: Good 🌎 SUSTAINABILITY: Sustainable enough in my opinion. 🤷🏻‍♀️ VISIT AGAIN: Yes . . . . . #gziramalta #veganmalta #grassyhopper #vegangzira #gzira #maltavegan #veganmaltaeats #veganinmalta #casualdiningmalta #maltafood #maltafoodie #malta2020 #restaurantsmalta #medditeranean #malta #veganig #veganholiday #plantfueled #vegannoms #veganbombs #vegangotgame #plantbaseddinner #veganappetizer #whatveganeats #happyvegan #vegantravels #veganblog #vegantraveler @foamandfork @drjuicemalta

It’s a very short list, but I am hoping that when I visit Malta again next month I will have more to share with you. 🤞🏻 In the meantime, I encourage you to suggest me some great new vegan or vegan-friendly restaurants in Malta that I should try.
