Pastizzi


Just look at the Blues here painted on the side of the building.
This shop has been here located in Toronto for decades.....I can still remember when I was in high school. They make the best "Pastizzi" in town....it is a Maltese favourite food item. This whole area has a Maltese Church, stores and coffee shops........
We have an apartment building around here that we rent out so when we visit the tenants we have to pass by and it is so hard not to stop by and have a few......especially when my husband is with me. He always stops.





 

Pastizzi
source; Wikipedia


A pastizzi  is a savoury pastry from Malta. Pastizzi usually have a filling either of ricotta or of mushy peas, and are called pastizzi tal-irkotta, "cheesecakes", or pastizzi tal-pi┼╝elli, "peacakes".

 Pastizzi are a popular and well-known Maltese food.

Pastizzi are usually diamond-shaped or round-shaped and made of filo pastry. 



I'm not supposed to eat these because I'm on a diet.....but I couldn't resist and took a bite from my husband's pastizzi, you can see my red lipstick mark.

  1. I had not heard of these delicious sounding treats before. Yum, and the building is painted a pretty blue, I agree.

  2. Like a cross between a borek and a cornish pasty. I haven't heard of Pastizzi before. I must have had my eyes closed when `i spent a couple of months in Malta.
