Halloumi is the must have cheese at the moment and now there is a pop-up Halloumi restaurant opening in London today.

Say Hallou-mi to Cyprus! was originally meant to open for just a week, but it sold out so quickly they extended from November 13 to 17 to November 26.

Andrew Zilouf, Director of 100 Hoxton, said: “The response to our partnership with the Cyprus Tourist Organisation has been incredible – we hoped the pop-up would be popular but we never expected to be fully booked in just five days.”

Say Hallou-mi to Cyprus! is located in Hoxton and chef Francis Puyat has created a five dish tasting menu for the customers.

The menu includes:

Halloumi and cauliflower fritters with a lime pickle yoghurt (£6)

A fresh grilled courgette and halloumi salad with fennel, pine nuts, harissa, honey & lemon (£7)

A chargrilled halloumi flatbread with butternut & dukkah spices (£6)

Crumbed halloumi fingers with a tomato chilli jam (£6)

Halloumi ice cream (£5)

The idea originated from the Cyprus Tourism Organisation who wanted to introduce those to the cheese that have never tried it.

The CTO's UK Director, Orestis Rossides said: “We're delighted to see such a positive response to the launch of our 'Say Hallou-mi to Cyprus' restaurant. Londoners clearly share our love of the Cypriot national cheese, halloumi.”

Say Halloum-mi to Cyprus! will be at 100 Hoxton, located at 100-102 Hoxton Street, N1 6SG from 13 – 19 November, 2017.
