Fried Halloumi Dressed in Zaatar Spices & Pomegranate Molasses at Saha in Squamish

On the drive up to Whistler this past weekend we stopped in at Saha Eatery in Squamish for a halloumi pitstop. They fry the tooth-squeaking cheese in grapeseed oil until it gets good and crispy golden brown coverage. They then set the slices – thinner than we typically see them – on an arugula/olive trio mix sweetened with pomegranate molasses and dusted with a tongue-tickling grind of Aleppo pepper and zaatar spices. It’s a beautifully composed dish — a delicious intro to a menu of retooled Levantine classics.
