From 20 October for one month only, Londoners will be treated to a brand-new Halloumi pop-up restaurant serving a ‘bottomless Halloumi brunch’ menu. The pop-up has been launched by the Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) as a way of showcasing their national cheese and enticing people to visit the island.
Located in Soho at Las Banderas, the restaurant has been created especially for the event by Francis Puyat and Andrew Zilouf of 100 Hoxton, with the menu featuring an array of Halloumi-inspired brunch dishes.
Christos Moustras of the Cyprus Tourism Organisation said: “Halloumi is Cyprus’ most popular cheese and we’re so excited to be able to bring a key element of Cypriot culture to our latest pop-up venture with Las Banderas. We are delighted to return and make Halloumi the key focus of brunch, a popular meal time in the UK.”
Andrew Zilouf said: “As lovers of innovative food, we were thrilled to partner with the CTO for a second year running for this project and have worked really hard to create a menu that we hope is both inspiring and delicious, the perfect start to the day!”
Diners will be able to book for brunch at Las Banderas seven days a week from 11am-4pm, before it disappears on Sunday 18 November 2018.
