Quesillos Guiliguiste

$$$$
Tasty Planet

There’s something to be said about a place that specializes in one thing, And Quesillos Guiliguiste is a perfect example of this, specializing in its namesake, the quesillo. This popular Nicaraguan snack consists of a braid of homemade, squeaky uncultured cheese similar to fresh mozzarella, but a little firmer. It gets wrapped in a thick Nicaraguan-style corn tortilla, loaded up with a tangy onion salsa, placed into a small plastic sandwich bag, and then drowned in a torrent of housemade cultured cream. Eating this can get a little messy, and many Nicaraguans have their own unique way of enjoying this snack while avoiding spills. If you wait a few minutes before digging in, the cream has a chance to meld with the salsa and soften the tortilla, making it easy to eat with a fork. Some may advise you to bite off a corner of the bag and suck out the tangy crema that forms at the bottom. If you’re unsure of how to gracefully eat a quesillo, just ask the owner, who’s more than happy to explain the dish and how to eat it without half of it ending up on your shirt.
