Whenever an email lands in my inbox entitled ‘halloumi pop-up’ I’m intrigued. Having only recently discovered halloumi, we’re pretty new to the game and obvs decided to head along to try it ..
We went along on Darren’s birthday so it was the perfect way to begin his birthday day out and line our stomachs before a day of cocktails and gin could begin!
I’d say Clockworks is slightly tucker away thanks to the building works taking place near the entrance so it’s best to reach it via Parr Street.
We hadn’t been to Clockworks before but we loved the vibe and decor of the venue. Relaxed, open and v casual.
The halloumi menu pop up has been in partnership with the Cypriot tourist board and taking place from 11th-14th April but we also had a nosey at the usual breakfast menu and would honestly, revisit Clockworks again anyway.
I had the Halloumi Rosti and Darren went for the Chilli Benedict. Both our plates were loaded with a healthy ratio of eggs, potato or sourdough and halloumi.
The menu had a couple of different types of halloumi too so after having the obligatory taste of each others, we could easily tell the difference.
Both plates were empty in less than 7 minutes and we commented to the v lovely staff that halloumi dishes should definitely remain on the menu. Especially as they offer more variety for veggies.
With full bellies we left happy and satisfied and ready to head up to Ghetto Golf for the afternoon to drink cocktails and make our way round the adult themed course. The sun also made an appearance for the day so a trip to the Botanical Gin Garden felt obligotaty, of course. Hendrick’s with cucumber tonic? Yes please.
A great way to round off a lovely day spent eating and drinking!
