PSA: A Restaurant Dedicated To Halloumi Is Coming To London

Sweet cheesus.

Just when you thought you’d exhausted your cheese-eating options, halloumi, the crunchy-on-the-outside, gooey-on-the-inside slices of deliciousness, is getting its own dang restaurant.

London restaurant 100 Hoxton was all set to transform into halloumi haven for a single week, but will run for most of November due to popular demand.

Whether you prefer it baked, fried or grilled, there’s no denying that everyone’s favourite cheese snack (don’t @ us) has the power to make or break a dish. Chef Francis Puyat orchestrated the menu, and says every single course will feature halloumi. Guests can expect dishes like cauliflower fritters and crumbed halloumi fingers with tomato chilli jam. There’s even halloumi ice cream on the menu.

The whole thing is the brainchild of the Cyrpus Tourism Organisation — halloumi’s homeland — in a bid to showcase the country’s unique culture culture and entice people to visit the island.

The pop-up will be open from Friday November 17 to Sunday November 26. For bookings or more information, visit the website.
