Queso Fresco Supermercado Tasteoff

I went to a new Vallarta Supermercado in North San Diego County yesterday and gravitated toward the Cheese case.

They had 3 bulk varieties of Mass marketed QFs - and the kind woman let me sample all three. They were:

> Cacique
> El Mexicano
> Los Altos

Of the 3, el mexicano was the worst. Tasteless and pasty.
Cacique barely faired better - and is passable but wouldn't survive in Mexico.

LOS ALTOS, cabrones - is where its at. I started to have a faint rush of pleasure as it reminded me of a recent 2 weeks in Jalisco. Consistency, fresh milk taste, and a light creamyness. Its not Mexican cheese but - I will gadly settle for this here!
