One the best things about London having such a fantastic foodie scene is that you can travel across continents without paying for the expensive plane ticket. I love the flavours of Eastern Mediterranean cuisine; and so when Ceru invited me to their new pop up restaurant on Canon Street I couldn’t resist the temptation!
Our second vegetable dish to arrive was the halloumi, a classic Levantine dish. Rather than the usual fried halloumi, Ceru bake this cheese with cherry tomatoes, olives and oregano, and it was an absolutely outstanding dish. The flavours were tremendous, and even the accompanying salad was polished off by the time we were finished!
Not quite done with the vegetables yet (be proud mum!) we had also ordered the roasted baby aubergines with tomato and chilli, which Lib declared to be the best aubergines she’d ever had. Bursting full of dark flavours, but with a delicious herb yoghurt to calm everything down, this was a superb dish.
As Ceru is a pop up it’s only in Canon Street until January so make sure you don’t miss out and pop down soon!
