Halloumi is hands down the best cheese, and let’s face it, all cheese is pretty great.
Now Nando’s have released a dreamy new starter; Halloumi Sticks & Dip. This delish dish looks set to be your new Nando’s obsession.
This could potentially even overtake the phenomenally popular humus and pitta dish, although let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Nando’s have released the following statement:
The famous squeaky cheese has long been the perfect compliment to Nando’s fiery brand of Southern African PERi-PERi chicken, and is now rewarded with its very own starter.
Consisting of five chunky sticks of halloumi, grilled until golden brown, and served with a pot of Nando’s sticky, sweet chilli jam for dipping; addiction levels will be high…
After tweeting a close up image of the halloumi, Nando’s left its customers in a puddle of lust; all drooling for the dish and aching to try it.
One person admitted, ‘my mouth just watered like it never has before’ while another saucy individual shouted, ‘this is p*rn!!!’
trying to sleep and all that I can think about is Nandos peri chips and halloumi ??plssss

And this isn’t the only new item to jazz up the Nando’s canon. The Veggie Cataplana is also set to make it’s debut; and it looks exceedingly flavoursome.
Nando’s have said:
The dish consists of chargrilled veg, chickpeas and beans, in a fiery rich tomato and coconut sauce. Served on spicy rice and sprinkled with toasted coconut shavings;
Nando’s refreshing twist on the traditional dish is not one to miss this spring.

You can have a nibble on these from 27th February onwards. The halloumi sticks are priced at £3.70, with the Veggie Cataplana setting you back £6.45.
I think I will just take both to be honest, who am I even kidding with this whole ‘don’t give into temptation’ lark.
I am certain I am not the only Nando’s-goer to be squeaking with excitement right now, much like this champion among cheeses.
