First McDonald's came for our falafel with the launch of McFalafel. Then Burger King came for our halloumi with the recent launch of its all-new vegetarian burger. It seems fast-food chains are borrowing a whole lot from Arab dishes to help satisfy the taste buds of vegetarians all around.
Burger King UK recently expanded its veggie menu, adding the Halloumi Burger to its menu in various chains across the country. This came after the fast-food chain ran a trial in Sweden, which proved to be a real success.
The chain recently announced the news in a cheeky post on Twitter.
"We heard you guys like halloumi," the chain tweeted.
As of July 8, the Halloumi Burger is ready to take orders.
A string of cheesy trolls ensued
The burger consists of a bun, crisp lettuce, onions, tomatoes, creamy mayo, and a crispy halloumi cheese patty imported all the way from Cyprus.
The chain is offering it alone, as part of a meal, and if you love getting cheesy, you can also choose to double the halloumi patties.
