Nenu the Artisan Baker

Preserving Baking Traditions
Wander off the main street, lose the tourists, and head up the hilly side streets to find Nenu. This artisan bakery is downstairs in a restored, classic bakery that was refurbished to preserve the art of Maltese baking. I enjoyed the the Ftira bread topped with tomato, Maltese cheese, onion, anchovies, and capers all ‘fenced’ in with a sesame seed crust. It was a taste combination of salty and fresh; a mix between a pizza and calzone. I washed it down with an aromatic Maltese coffee which seems to be strangely hard to find in Malta! The owner brought me out one last Maltese specialty, a warm date fritter. It’s as if you are biting into a homemade fig newton—delicious!
