Queso de Freír is a fresh, white cheese with a firm texture that doesn’t melt when heated and maintains its properties when fried. It’s a favorite in the Caribbean, especially in the Dominican Republic.
Queso de Freír is traditionally consumed as a part of the quintessential Dominican breakfast, called Tres Golpes, which consists of fried cheese, salami, and mangú (mashed boiled green plantains), and is usually served with eggs. When fried, Tropical Queso de Freír turns golden and crispy on the outside and soft and tasty on the inside.
