Get your Greek on at Halloumi in Glasgow
It was launch night at Halloumi in Glasgow last night and we popped in to see what the fuss was about.
Inside, it’s all bright and casual, perfect for some relaxed dining.
Now what about the food? I love Greek food, it’s comforting, tasty and you certainly won’t leave hungry. I have no idea if anywhere I’ve eaten in is authentic, I lived on pizza on my trips to Greece on holiday as it was all I could decipher from the menu! (That and Gyros and chips mmm!)
A tasty looking menu.
First up some warmed pitta and dips – tsatziki, humour, red pepper hummus and taramasalata to name some. All very dippable.
Lamb dolmadas (stuffed vine leaves) and Lamb keftedes (meatballs) both faves in the foodie household. Moist, tender and scrummy – we’ll be munching some more of these.
The chicken skewers smelled of holidays, charcoal grilled with onion and lemon – yum!
Of course some Halloumi! If you haven’t tried this squeaky cheese – get some! It’s perfect fried or grilled and here it was served on some salad. Mr Foodie is a big lover of Halloumi and makes a mean Halloumi piece, get him to make you one. Thumbs up from Mr Halloumi.
Moussaka. Mrs Foodie loves a Pastichio – which is like Moussaka only with macaroni (there’s that mac n cheese love again!) We think this is because of fatty mince in previous Moussaka and poor bechamel sauce. None of that here – creamy sauce, and good thick layers.
For an opening night the staff and food came up very well. They sell a small selection of Greek beers (Fix, Mythos and 1 on rotation) and some Hellenic cocktails too, such as “Zeus”, a classic sour with ouzo, Disaronno, lemon juice, egg white & sugar syrup. We’ll be back in a few weeks to see how the food & drink fares and let you know!
