Haloumi cheese

  • r

Does anyone know where I can buy some Haloumi cheese? It is from Cyprus and wonderful but I can't find it anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. There is a restaurant on Bay called Gus that serves a dish with this cheese. Maybe if you called they could tell you where they buy it.

      I've bought haluomi cheese at a place called the Cheese Boutique:

      45 Ripley Avenue, 
      Toronto ON, M6S 3P2
      Tel: 416-762-6292 Fax: 416-762-0890

    2. I have found it a couple of times at different spots at the St. Lawrence Market. Unfortunately the names of the spots have escaped me - I beleive I found it the last time at Scheffler's Deli in their dairy section.

      Good Luck!

      1. I'm pretty sure I've seen Haloumi in some of the Greek stores on the Danforth.

          I'm not sure about quality, but the IGA at Danforth and Pape has it. I remember noticing it a little while ago, but I neglected to pick any up. I'm sure lots of other stores around that area carry it, too.

        2. there is a place on the danforth west of pape on the south side called the Greek House. They have two different varieties of halloumi. I don't know what the difference is though. I do know halloumi is great when you rub olive oil into it and throw it on the grill.
