First-Ever Kosher Restaurant & Chabad Open in Malta


Malta can now finally join in the  running for most popular Jewish tourist destination in the Mediterranean now that is has a brand new Kosher restaurant!

Malta, a tiny Mediterranean island, is about one tenth the size of Rhode Island and known for its beautiful harbors and walled cities. One of the newest Chabads out there, the Chabad of Malta opened just 8 months ago in December 2012 and serves the island’s 100 Jewish year-round  residents.

Rabbi Segal and his wife, Mushka, opened a new kosher restaurant, L’Chaim, several weeks later. L’Chaim imports Glatt Kosher food from Israel and Belgium and is open from Sunday-Thursday. So far, their most popular menu items are the Israeli schnitzel and  french fries. Other main dishes include stir fried chicken with green beans and peppers on crispy sweet potatoes; and the fish of the day.

  • 100 residents!? THat’s roughly 70 more than I would have expected for Malta. Pretty cool. I wish them luck in their restaurant!

  • That is pretty cool. I once heard someone say that wherever there is Coke, there is Chabad – seems like that is a true statement!
