If you love halloumi, don’t forget to visit the Cypriot Kitchen for all things halloumi. There’s burgers, souvla, pita, even watermelon and halloumi! How many times can we talk about halloumi?!

Spanish Gourmet Caterers will be serving up authentic Spanish cuisine with a theatrical twist! You’ll know it’s more than just the flavours, it’s all about the experience.

Cheese lovers will be flocking to That’s Amore Cheese for their delicious gnocchi and cheesy bagels. Another Italian option is the iconic 400 Gradi with their tasty Napoletana pizzas.

And as we get closer to the heart of summer, don’t forget to cool down with some chilly snacks.
