Freshly made kesong puti (native cheese) for breakfast is one of the perks whenever I travel to Laguna and Tagaytay. Paired with pandesal that is still hot from the oven or pugon with kapeng barako will surely perk me up even amidst chilly air. My trip to Cavite City introduced me to another version of kesong puti. Caviteños call it quesillo. This raw cheese made from carabao’s milk and wrapped in fresh banana leaves has a creamy texture just like the kesong puti I have been accustomed to. I was able to buy quesillo at P. Burgos Street in Cavite City just a block away from the Mercado del Ciudad de Cavite (Cavite City Public Market). To my dismay, I have forgotten how much it costs as I was too eager when buying. This article was initially published at my food blog Eat To Your Heart's Content
