  1. Via Serious Eats, here are some leads:

    Bravo Supermarket, multiple locations; Viva Fruit and Vegetable, 120 Essex Street, New York, NY, 212-353-0871 (map); Plaza Piaxtla Inc., 913 Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 718-386-2626 (map); Marcelina's Mexican Food, 917 Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 718-418-9515 (map).

      1. I am pretty sure you can get cotija cheese at Whole Foods on Bowery, otherwise you can definitely get it at the Essex Market a few blocks away. There is also a patch of mercados along Lexington off 103rd where I buy Mexican ingredients, including cheese.

        1. yes, Essex Street Market has it all! i had checked there and saw every other cheese besides that was hiding! Thanks everyone!
