Where can you buy Halloumi in SF?

I just had another wonderful grilled halloumi dish last night; this time at Troya. Troya's version came with beautiful heirloom tomatoes and a mound of lightly dressed greens.

I'd love to prepare this at home, and was hoping someone out there could tell me where I can buy this cheese.

349 Clement Street, San Francisco, CA 94118

    I've always found at at the Whole Foods in the East Bay, so I'd bet that WF in SF has it too. I'd also check Rainbow.

      I definitely saw it at Rainbow Grocery a few weeks ago.

      Try Haig's, worth visiting for so many other international foods also... and near you (Clement/8th). One of the SF places I miss most since moving to Oakland.
      (Sidenote: Have you ever tried frying Kasseri? So delicious... and not "squeaky" like Halloumi).

        the halal butcher at 24th street and folsom has halloumi, as well as a good selection of middle eastern supplies.

          In addition to Haig's on Clement so does 25th & Clement Produce in the outer Richmond.

            Cheese Plus on Polk has it too.

              Try Parkside Farmer's Market on Taraval at 16th Ave. in SF. It's a really good Middle Eastern produce market -- lots and lots of great cooking ingredients (including cheeses) inside.
