I am sooo glad we found the Ensaymada Project! They are the best remedy for homesick as every bite literally warms up our Filipino taste palet but! after a few orders we find ourselves even liking these Es better than the orig from home. It's almost like on a different category than our normal ensaymadas (bread quality is so buttery good and topping is pinoy taste). You will definitely taste the quality ingredients used in these ensaymadas! Best when warmed 5-8 seconds on the microwave or we even grill them on panini press or anything similar! We get our instant fix at baked and order our haul online. We even send them as gifts and pasalubong when we visit family in the east coast! Chari is the best- always prompt and accurate with shipping to replying to questions. Shipping is fast to, when we order to socal it usually arrives overnight maximum 2 days!!!
QUESO DE BOLA (priced per dozen)
Queso de bola ("ball of cheese") is an aged, semi-hard cheese that hails from the Netherlands. It is customarily grated on the Filipino ensaymada and served with slices of jamón during Noche Buena -- the traditional feast of Christmas Eve which lasts until the early hours of Christmas Day. You can order Chari's iconic ensaymada by the dozen, all year round!
This was my favorite of all and I don't think I can go back to any other (brand) of ensaymada.
Package arrived immediately. Presentation is great. Ensaymada was to die for. The cream was just right, not too sweet and blended well with the queso de bola. Bread was light and not doughy. Definitely my new favorite. You can taste the homemade goodness and care in making these. Love them!!!
Chari's Es are simply the best. I have not tried a flavor I didn't love! But the Queso de Bola is my favorite one. It is the perfect blend of sweet, salty and creamy. These Es are simply addictive! Each bite is as heavenly as the last one! Ordering is quick and easy. Shipping is a bit pricey but fast and oh-so-worth it! I order a lot and freeze some for later... although consuming everything in one sitting usually crosses my mind and I have to fight the urge. :)
Queso De Bola Ensaymadas are our favorite - and have become a favorite of our good friends from Chicago. This is our third shipment to them, and they can't wait for the next one. BY FAR the BEST ensaymadas around. If I could give more than 5 stars, I definitely would!
The queso de bola ensaymada is our new favorite! It is so delicious! We love it!!
You know how you sometimes taste something so particularly scrumptious you have to close your eyes? Yeah, that'll happen when you bite into these queso de bola Es. Our fave will always be the classic, but this is a close second, with just enough cheesy flavor mixed in with the butter, and that perfect dough! Yup, it is hard to part with these delectables!
