Last week I was kindly invited along to La Coccinella in St.Julians to check out their shop. While I hadn’t actually been before, I had been to their other store – The Deli in Sweiqi so I was excited to see what this store had to offer.
La Coccinella is located just behind City of London in St. Julians and is a treasure trove of delicacies and quaint home products. The building itself is located in a stylishly converted townhouse where their very own Ladybird Organic Products are available amongst other favourites sourced from around the world.
Check out these cute teapots and plates that they have ( I just adore the camel teapot!)…
Amongst all homeware you’ll find a vast selection of gourmet food products – everything from tea and organic wine to delicious cheese from Sicily.
They stock their own range of Ladybird Farm Products which come directly from Ladybird Farm Dingli. They are firm believers in food of the highest quality and are committed to delivering organic gourmet food that is free from pesticide and synthetic fertilisers to the foodies of Malta.
They also stock much loved brands such a Tea Pigs and many more.
I couldn’t finish this post without mention my new favourite thing – Vincotto. Which is an infused balsamic vinegar. They have a huge variety with everything from lemon to chocolate. While there I tried the blueberry version and it gives the most subtle taste and Sarah recommend that these go well with everything from fish to ice cream, but I love it the old fashioned way – dipping in some fresh Maltese ftira bread.
While visiting I picked up some products to try out, so keep an eye out in the coming weeks for a food post.
This place is a must visit for foodies – and be sure to pick up some Vincotto! For more information you can check out the La Coccinella Facebook Page
