Burrata from Aniata in Del Mar

Has anyone else had this? I went to Aniata to pick up cheeses for my friend's gift. They were really helpful - I basically said I wanted three cheeses and my only criteria was that they are different than what you can buy from TJ or Whole Foods. I ended up with those cheeses, a wedge of Raclette, brie with truffles, a piece of Wendsleydale (because, like Wallace & Grommit, I would love a cheese vacation), nice salami, and the last ball of burrata.

The brie was pretty heady with truffles in the middle. The Wendsleydale was more novelty than something I'd crave. But the burrata was so good! Soft layers of cheese with what seemed to be cream oozing out and the flavor was buttery and rich. I ate half with a tomato only, saved some to let my bf taste, then ate the rest this morning for breakfast.

Where else could I find this in San Diego? Aniata is on my way home from work, so it's really convenient, but now I want to go gobble up as much as I can find!
