A couple years ago in west island mtl. I bought this cheese in brine in a jar. I know very random, but it was really good. Anyone know what I am talking about/ where I can find it in Toronto?

    You can buy that sort of cheese at some mid-eastern stores, such as ARZ on Lawrence Ave, east of Pharmacy.

      Try Highland Farms. Also not sure about the jar part, but they do sell an Armenian string cheese that I think did come from Montreal and it was massively salty. I had to soak it in water in order to eat it. It has nigella seeds in it. I have to say I like the Armenian string cheese in the US (Wegman's) much better because it is not so incredibly salty.

        Never seen it in a jar, but I have seen salty string cheese at Grande cheese. It was in a vac pac and the cheese was twisted up like a figure 8. I wish I could remember the brand ...sorry. It was close to where the boconccini are at the Richmond Hill Grande.
