Expert Recommendations

"Crispy haloumi from chef Mike Solo at Zahav is just salty goodness. He gets the cheese crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, and serves it with dates, mustard greens, and almonds. I love the crunchiness of the almonds against the softness of the dates and the cheese. The textural combo gets me excited!"
"Zahav is probably the best restaurant in Philly, and this fried haloumi is just insane. Like all the food here, it's very simple: just fried cheese, a little date purée, some nuts. I could eat a thousand. Sick."
"Crispy, gooey, melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness. The versatility of this cheese means that Solomonov plays and surprises us with the accompaniments. The last version I tried, with sweet sautéed peaches and corn, was a fun nod to the end of summer."
