queso in TO?
Does anyone know where to find queso blanco in Toronto? or even nice big chunks of haloumi?
I love me some fried cheese, and I want a better option than the stupidly expensive and small PC haloumi. I remember at Costco last time I was in the States I could buy two huge blocks of it for around $5... not that I expect it to be nearly so cheap here!
edit - just to be clear I want to buy some cheese at a store, not get it at a restaurant...
Haloumi at Arz or Nasr (if it's still operating?). Queso of some type is available at Fiesta Farms, although I'm not familiar with the varieties. I know that they have fresh queso, like ricotta.
I know that cheese boutique carries haloumi, althought it is fairly expensive. I have seen a cheese thats similar to haloumi at some portuguese markets (o nosso talho) its called "Douro blando" I think it may be similar to haloumi ( nice and salty and squeeky texture) its pretty cheap too.
Hope that helps abit.
You can get haloumi at Iqbal Halal Foods: Unit 10, 2 Thorncliffe Park Dr., 416-467-0177. Great place to shop!
