Sweet, thanks to everyone for their replies.
Yeah, I'm looking for the braided or rolled stuff. I used to get it from the market next to Monte Alban, so I went to Monte Alban and asked. They said they used to sell it but couldn't tell me where to get it.
I've gone into more than a few little markets with no luck. I went to the Top Value grocery store where they carry Don Juan products and the quesillo was not even close.
Maybe I'll just go back to the market next to Monte Alban and ask where they source it.
i am looking for decent queso oaxaca. the place i used to get it at is very inconsistent.
i am looking for smallish, whole rounds, i don't know what they're really called. i am not looking for the best, ne-plus-ultra of quesillo, just something better than the shrinkwrapped Cacique (or equivalent brand). basically, i want quesillo that doesn't taste like off mozzarella.
i also live in west la, so not driving an hour would be nice. ya, i know, but the place i used to get it at is right across the street and used to have dependably good rounds of quesillo.
any help, though, is appreciated. thanks.
