Quesero / Cheese Vendor
The Quesero street vendor walks the streets with a covered plate on his shoulder filled with a wonderful tasting white cheese. He sells a very popular cheese called Queso de Hoja. This popular cheese is a white string type cheese similar to mozzarella but a little stringier. It has a slightly stronger taste that leaves a squeaky feel in the mouth.
The cheese vendor can be seen carrying a large platter. He has a plastic grocery bag hanging off his arm that is filled with bags and large crackers to accompany the cheese. The Queseros plate is usually covered with a piece of clear plastic underneath the wedges of this wonderful flavorful white cheese are impaled with little wooden toothpicks.
The Quesero will give you a wedge of cheese and a round cracker to go along with the cheese. The price is usually around $35 pesos (as of 1/19)
