from presentation to taste – absolutely a 10!!!
QUESO DE BOLA (priced per HALF dozen)
Queso de bola ("ball of cheese") is an aged, semi-hard cheese that originated in the Netherlands. It is customarily served topping the Filipino ensaymada with slices of jamón during Noche Buena -- the traditional feast of Christmas Eve which lasts until the early hours of Christmas Day.
For me, this is better than the classic ensaymada. The queso de bola is a perfect topping! I put it in the microwave longer than 10 seconds to get that melted cheese, and it's absolutely perfect. Nakakabaliw sa sarap!
