A Taste of Greece | Halloumi (Glasgow) Review

Halloumi Glasgow Review

I love Greek food but I rarely get the chance to eat it. I have visited Halloumi twice in the last six months as it has become a favourite of mine and my family. On this occasion, last week, my family were meeting my aunt and uncle for a catch up.

Inside has amazing décor. It’s clean and bright with a Mediterranean feel which comes from Greek flag and the broken plate mosaic on the wall. To be quite honest half of my meal was spent looking at the interior imagining I was in Greece soaking up some sun! Halloumi also has a relaxed vibe to it which makes it a lovely place to eat.

Halloumi only use fresh, locally sourced ingredients and their meat is supplied by Campbell’s Prime Meat and fish from Bernard Corrigan’s which is great as where possible you should buy local produce.

It says on the Halloumi menu that they recommend that you order three mezes (small plates) per person and that you share with the people you are with which is great as you get a wider taste of Greek food! I opted to get a Gyros (£6.95) which is toasted flatbread with tzatziki, chips, salad and of course, grilled halloumi cheese. But, there was an option between either halloumi, grilled pork and chicken. The Gyros was massive. In fact, it probably would have been more than enough for me on its own. I also got a traditional Greek salad (£5.65) as I love mixed olives, feta, peppers, cucumber, tomato & red onion.

Lastly, I ordered a Rizagalo (£4.95) which is a baked rice pudding flavoured with orange & cinnamon and a fresh mint tea. Both of these are real comfort foods for me and remind me of my childhood.  The combination of orange and cinnamon sounds so strange but it is honestly one of the nicest things I have tasted and it was a generous portion.

Halloumi Glasgow Review

In total, my food came to just under £18 which I think is amazing for the amount that I had, for all the food being such amazing quality and the friendly waiters. Halloumi was just as amazing as I remembered it being and the food was just as good if not better. The only thing about my visit to Halloumi that I would change is that I'd take more pictures!

Have you ever been to Halloumi and if so how was your experience?

Till next time,
