Cheddar Cheese

Postby Kelly » Sun Aug 08, 2010 6:40 pm

Wong has been having an imported cheddar cheese fairly regularly, and it's not bad. But I also noticed that they have a made in Peru cheddar, was wondering if anyone had tried it?

Not tried either, but if you like cheddar Plaza Vea import a cheese from New zealand called "Mainland" It comes in Mild, strong and vintage at about 12 Soles for 250g. It's as good as you'll find in Lima.

I was just in Wong in Aurora, and they have Colby/Jack pre-sliced and preshredded, along with mozzerella shredded and a couple other options.

I only usually only shop Wong when I find I've run out of something and need it fast, but if I may be going in more often now that they've got some half-decent cheese in there. It's not gourmet, but it'll do on a burger!

They also have presliced cheddar, provolone, and munster at Benavides/Caminos del Inca Wong. And string cheese! They even have reduced fat string cheese!

To use the words "reduced fat" and "cheese" in the same sentence is culinary blaspheme.
You'll be saying next that it's best accompanied by a glass of full bodied, Rioja light :lol: :lol: :lol:

The Fields brand "cheddar ingles" that is offered at Wong is pretty good; it is sharp cheddar, though pricey at S/. 62.50 per kilo.
