The Grassy Hopper was first launched in October 2013 with a mobile vegetarian kiosk situated in Ta'Xbiex. Soon after, the success of the initial outlet led to project number 2 - the conversion of a Pastizzeria in Valletta into Grassy Hopper #2. Bringing vegetarian options to the city. As of December 2014 we have also opened a Cafeteria, expanding our services to include the facility of eating in. The kiosk-our roots, is still used for public events and private functions.
We believe that the food we eat is one of the foundations of how happy and fulfilling our lives can be. If we eat food full of nutrients, energy and cleansing properties, the level of passion and commitment we can bring to our lives will increase accordingly.
Our menu items are carefully chosen to give you high quality carbs and low GMI foods, without refined sugars and starches. We use superfoods and superherbs wherever we can to ensure that all our food packs a punch! Conserving the nutrients of your food is one of our highest priorities as well as offering options that will allow you to enjoy a balanced diet.
Our food is 100% vegetarian and is also mostly vegan. We use fresh, local and seasonal ingredients where possible and often source our vegetables from Organic or Pesticide Free Farmers. We are on a mission to give vegetarian options which are both tasty and filling.
We use eco-friendly packaging that was sourced sustainably and is 100% compostable. In collaboration with Garbage to Gardens we send our organic waste and packaging to an organic farm to be turned into first class compost.
We are working hard to create new systems and collaborations to facilitate a transition to a more sustainable food system. For us vegetarianism and permaculture are two important movements within this process. Find out more about our featured farmers and projects!
Our mission is to provide a good base, through vegetarian healthy food, for people to really be happy and achieve all they dream of with their lives. We are super grateful for all the people who resonate with our vision and who are a part of this community.
