In my opinion the Tesco Halloumi Cheese is just as good as any other and I have tried a lot of different Halloumi cheeses, the cheese is originated from cyprus but is very popular in the rest of the middle east & Greece and now world wide.
Halloumi cheese is a source of goat or sheep's milk but some can contain cow's milk. It can be grilled or fried but the most popular is fried with a little olive oil as the cheese can become to rubbery if grilled in my opinion fried is a lot better. The cheese is white with a texture similar to mozzarella and has a very slight salty flavour this is because when you buy the cheese it is stored with it's natural juices which is salt water and often mint to add flavour.
Tesco Halloumi cheese varys in price depending on weight but on average about just over £2 approx. great in salads,or pitta bread , I have it with pitta bread and some greek or non greek sausages with a little salad and some taramousalata it;s very nice.
Overall the tesco halloumi cheese is very nice has a lovely flavour with a mozzarella like texture kept in it's natural jucices flavoured with mint and the kids love it also.
little tip;-when you do open the packet make sure you dont loose too much of the juices as the cheese will tend to dry out.
