Going beyond the usual Taste

Kesong Puti at UP Los Banos, Laguna

This was the main food tripping purpose we had in going to Laguna and that is to buy Kesong Puti (White Cheese) from the Institute of Animal Science in the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB).

After we bought a buko pie, we headed straight by riding a jeep and asking the driver to drop us at ‘Animal Science’ and walked a couple of meters to buy the cheese.

There are two places where you can buy Kesong Puti (White Cheese) in the Institute of Animal Science. First is the Philippine Carabao Center and the other is at the Dairy Training and Research Institute (DTRI).

They also have other items like Fresh Milk, Choco Milk, Pastillas de Leche, Pastillas de Ube, Plain Yoghurt and Yoghurt Ice Cream. It is important to note that the customer before us ordered Choco Milk and so as the customer, that appeared out of nowhere, after us. Below is their price list when we visited.

I’ll buy Pan de Sal tomorrow and go all out on the two Kesong Puti.

How to get to the Institute of Animal Industry in UP Los Baños, Laguna

From Cubao, ride a bus (HM Transport) going to Laguna that has a signboard ‘College’. Tell the conductor to drop you off at ‘College’. Fare is 110 Pesos/person and estimated travel time is 2 hours 30 minutes.

After going down the bus, ride a jeep that has a signboard ‘College’. Tell the driver to drop you off at ‘Animal Science’. Fare is 8 Pesos/person and estimated travel time 10 minutes.

Walk on the road that has the ark of Animal Husbandry and look for the signs of Philippine Carabao Center and Dairy Training and Research Institute.

Note

  • According to the lady at the Dairy Corner of the Philippine Carabao Center, the Kesong Puti should be placed inside the freezer within 4-5 hours from purchase and the Mozzarella Cheese within 8 hours from purchase so that it would not spoil. This made us go back home sooner than we expected.
