Anyone with half a taste bud knows that halloumi is the best cheese of all.

Just slice that bad boy, chuck under a grill for a few minutes and bingo – hot slices of heaven.

Halloumi is way more versatile than many of us give it credit for being.

And what better way to see exactly what the cheese has to offer than with a week-long Halloumi pop-up restaurant?

The Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) is hoping that by having a restaurant dedicated to Halloumi, they’ll be able to showcase their national cheese and entice people to visit the island.

‘Halloumi is Cyprus’ most popular cheese and we’re so excited to be able to bring a key element of Cypriot culture to our pop up venture with 100 Hoxton,’ says Orestis Rossides, UK Director of CTO.

Created especially for the event by executive chef Francis Puyat, the menu will include:

  • Halloumi and cauliflower fritters with a lime pickle yoghurt (£6)
  • Freshly grilled courgette and halloumi salad with fennel, pine nuts, harissa, honey & lemon (£7)
  • Chargrilled halloumi flatbread with butternut & dukkah spices (£6)
  • Crumbed halloumi fingers with a tomato chilli jam (£6)
  • Halloumi ice cream (£5)

Diners will be able to try each dish individually or opt for the full tasting experience with every item on a sharing platter for two people, priced at £26.
