In general, I go to Malta not only for shoppingworth. It is better to try local cuisine with an emphasis in Italy - risotto, pizza, fish, seafood, pasta with various sauces, all washed down with local wine. The wine has a tart taste and is often used in cooking, for example, to prepare national dishes - rabbit in wine sauce. Maltese wines are marked on the label MALTA and GOZO and abbreviation D.O.K. (Denominazzjoni ta 'Origini Kontrollata). Alcoholic drinks even try tequila of the local cacti, it is inexpensive, comes as a base for cocktails.
In general, shopping in Malta can be described as "something needed to" or "accidentally turned up."
