Quarter pounder of cheese

What is a good cheese to use to make Smažený Sýr?

I've eaten Smažený Sýr at the stands in Praha, and I'd like to try make it myself. What cheese would be a good choice to use, and what would be a good breading to use on the outside?

I've already tried making it once---I used cheddar and a simple batter, but while it tasted all right, it didn't have anywhere near the consistency that it should have, and was much too liquid.

Response by poster: Ack! Wikipedia!

I tried searching google for recipes, but didn't even think of looking on Wikipedia.

Response by poster: It's delicious, is what it is. It's basically a block of breaded, fried cheese that is usually served with Mayo or Tartar sauce on a bun.
