However, you do have to feel for our herbivore friends who have to longingly watch us chow down on a juicy beef burger without any alternative.
KFC recently launched their vegan chicken burger – “The Imposter” – and not wanting to be left behind, Burger King, the best fast-food chain in the world, has launched a Halloumi Burger right here in the UK.
I’m surprised it’s taken this long: as they point out, the UK absolutely loves halloumi as a nation – apparently we’re the biggest importers of the cheese.
I think it’s alright – bit rubbery. Although Nandos do halloumi sticks with a chilli jam and they’re awesome.
Back to the matter at hand: BK’s first ever halloumi burger is made entirely of halloumi, featuring a hefty slab of crispy, creamy, fried halloumi, along with a buttery brioche bun with freshly cut crisp lettuce, onions, tomatoes and creamy mayo.
And if you’re feeling extra, you can double the halloumi patties.
The fast food giant said in a statement: “Halloumi lovers across the UK rejoice and mark your calendars – the 8th of July will see Burger King launch the highly-anticipated Halloumi Burger nationwide.
“Made with crispy and delicious halloumi cheese from Cyprus, the Halloumi Burger will have lovers of this Cypriot delicacy filled with excitement.
“With the UK now earmarked as the biggest importer of Halloumi, chowing down on over 2,000 tonnes of the Cypriot delicacy per year, the demand for Halloumi has reached fever pitch and Burger King have listened.
“Bringing halloumi to the masses, Burger King are excited to be amongst the first quick service restaurant to offer halloumi burgers to the highstreets, stations and airports, all at an accessible price!
“Avoid the FOMO and take a trip down to your local Burger King:registered: UK restaurant and let Burger King provide you with the taste and sound of Summer 2019.”
The burger can be bought on its own, or as part of a meal alongside Burger King’s French fries and your favourite drink. It will set you back £3.99, with a meal costing £5.99. The double costs £5.49 and the double meal £7.49. Fairly reasonable.
There’s a BK restaurant right across from where I work – I might see if they have one at lunch.
Cheese is healthy right?
