Wetherspoon's Now Has Halloumi Fries On The Menu

Wetherspoon's Now Has Halloumi Fries On The Menu

Halloumi is not just cheese, it is a way of life. Unless you're American, because it appears halloumi is quite literally a foreign concept to many of our Transatlantic cousins.

So, if you're furiously nodding your head agreeing with us that halloumi is up there with the best, then you will probably be pretty happy to hear that JD Wetherspoon now has halloumi fries on the menu. Yup, halloumi fries.

According to Joyscribe, the delicious treat is just as cheap as you would expect from good ol' Spoons, as you can grab a plate of the fries for just £3.10.

They are served with a sweet chilli dip and some rocket on the side (part of our five a day as well - win win), although the only part we honestly care about is the halloumi.

We're expecting to see queues outside the doors, as it looks like these bad boys will be in high demand. Another potential job for the bouncers, we see.

*Runs to local pub immediately*

It looks like Wetherspoon is redeeming itself after the release of the Summer menu had people seething at the lack of hot dogs, 8oz rump steaks and New York deli burgers on offer. Imagine.

Metro reported that other dishes axed included the cheesecake, tandoori chicken and avocado or salmon bagel - the bagels were never really in keeping with their greasy, calorific counterparts.

But don't fear - because if you can't get yourself down to your local Spoons, then Firebox has a handy alternative - the brand is selling a make-your-own-halloumi-at-home kit.

That's right, you can make the cheese from scratch, meaning you'll never need to run out again.

You can buy one of these kits for £22.99 ($29.75) from Firebox, and each kit contains everything (ingredients and equipment) you need to make eight batches of halloumi, which works out at just £2.80 ($3.62) per lot.

We are also pretty sure that you can make fries out of the squeaky cheese too, if you're a dab hand in the kitchen.

All you need to do is add your own milk to all the ingredients, and Bob's your uncle.

Firebox says that the end product is also much better than the 'usual supermarket rubber' and is the perfect way to get into cheese creation as it is super-easy. Any halloumi is good enough for us.

It's all vegetarian-friendly too, as the rennet in it is suitable for veggies. Halloumi just wants to please everyone.

Anyone else craving it now or just us?
