Queijo Vaquinha

August 12, 2010

Name: Queijo Vaquinha

AKA: Cheese Factory

Location: Cinco Ribeiras, there are signs indicating turn off; if you continue down the road with the cheese factory, you will find O Pilar and the Cinco Ribeiras swimming hole


Cuisine: Cheese, Bar, Snack Bar

English Speaking Staff: It is possible

Here you can have the chance to see this cheese being made.  Also, if you purchase the cheese here, it will be cheaper than in the local grocery store.  Samples are placed on a table, so you can just walk in and enjoy.  There are 3 varities, including a spicy cheese.  They also have a bar here and place to sit down.  Unsure if there is an actual menu with food, but you can get a variety of drinks, and likely small snacks too, including ice cream bars.  There is a local place that makes a bread, similar in shape and consistency to an English muffin, which are available for sale here.
