Fábrica de Quesos Santa Rosa

Food in Ocosingo

Ocosingo is known for its queso amarillo (yellow cheese). There are nine main types sold by this cheesemaker, including ‘de bola,’ which comes in 1kg balls with an edible wax coating and a crumbly, whole-fat center. Despite the word 'factory' in its name, this place is actually a small hole-in-the wall, though the production room is out the back and you can ask to see it.
