ISO queso blanco or queso fresco in the GTA

I love this kind of cheese with beans, baked ripe plantain and even cut in sticks, wrapped in pizza dough and deep-fried... South America's version of the Mozza sticks.
But... where to get it?

    There's a few Latin American shops in Kensingnton Market that carry it. I picked some up once, but didn't really know what to do with it. Maybe I'll give it another chance, and actually read up about it this time. Enjoy!

      Perola market in Kensington carries it for sure, I've purchased it there a few times.

      You can get Queso Fresco in many west-end grocery stores, including the No Frills in the Dufferin Mall, and more reliably at the No Frills on Lansdowne at Dundas.

        Highland Farms, in Mississauga at least, stocks it and other Mexican-style cheeses.

          I used to buy it at Mendels cheese store in Kensington. I remember being told that they receive it on Monday and it's usually sold out by Thursday. I've been disappointed a couple times by asking for it on a weekend, but it's been a while so I don't know when they are currently getting it in.
