Fridays are special at Paranga: throughout April, there’s a celebration of mussels and chips. Paranga is serving them at lunch and dinner every Friday, when a different cooking style will be chosen for the mussels themselves – from Piemonte, Sicily,Emilia-Romagnaand theValle D’Aosta. The price per person of €23 includes a glass of white wine or a bottle of beer. This includes three hours of free parking at the Eden car park by InterContinental Malta.
Paranga has recently reopened for spring by the sea with an Italian-inspired menu using the freshest Mediterranean ingredients. Diners can choose from a tempting list of Italian dishes that includes grilled scampi set on sautéed asparagus, seaweed powder and beetroot olive oil; swordfish carpaccio, with orange, capers and onion, dressed with citrus flavoured oil; red prawn sushi, grilled water melon, soya cloud and wasabi dressing; veal and beef ravioli, with a Pecorino cheese velouté; tagliatelle with seafood in a light prawn flavoured bisque; risotto with scampi, candied orange and fizzy mint; tagliata of fillet of beef cooked with 12 years old Jameson whiskey, served with artichokes, pine-nuts and thyme oil; 36-hour confit of pork belly, with a warm cannelini bean salad, and beetroot caramelized sauce, slow cooked organic chicken breast, truffle sauce and grilled endives with an orange perfume. The dessert menu is a special one, and a particular favourite with patrons: pistachio crème brûlée with croquant and fresh fruit; pannacotta al Frangelico in zuppa di cioccolato e caffe e frutti di bosco; crunchy Belgian chocolate mousse with praline Bavaroise – and those are just a few of them.
Andrea Schranz Depasquale, Paranga’s new manager is “excited to be leading a young, dynamic and professional team. Along with Italian chef Giuseppe Puccarelli we have created an innovative and fresh menu and together with the restaurant’s stylish ambiance, Paranga will be the ultimate seafront dining experience for lovers of good Italian food and fine wine.”
Paranga is open for lunch and dinner every day. For more information or to make a reservation, call 21 377 600 or email [email protected]
