My First Taste of Syrian Shelal Cheese

Shelal Cheese

This was from the hotel's breakfast spread this morning near the flatbread and gigantic selection of olives. At first I figured that it was just something like a mozzarella-based string cheese, but when I bit into one strand, I could barely swallow it, as it was almost like eating pure salt. I suppose that it would be good if eaten in measured amounts. But I had so much salty food on my plate already this morning that I didn't go much further with this.
