Something about cheese always sticks…

In no way are we exaggerating when we say cheese is one of the greatest evidences that a higher being exists. It’s savory, it’s comforting, it’s diverse – cheese just makes everything better. While many types of cheese are household names (parmesan, cheddar, brie, gouda, and the like), there’s one that has arguably snatched the top spot of everyone’s favorite: mozzarella.

Most of our cheesy favorites dabble in mozzarella goodness, but there’s something classic about long strips of cheese, breaded and fried, and finally, dipped into some marinara sauce. We’ve done lists on the best Mac & Cheese dishes and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, but behold, a list of where to get the cheesiest Mozzarella Sticks in Metro Manila.
