Burrata Alert - Surfas steps up

CulverJack | Sep 27, 2006 05:02 PM

I was in Surfas yesterday for a few things. I've been really enjoying the incredible tomatoes practically screaming for good homes at the farmer's markets now, and I thought I'd see if they had fresh mozzarella, or even better, burrata. Didn't see any in the cheese case in the store, so I went to the cafe and there was a sign - literally. "WE HAVE FRESH BURRATA". What more could I ask for? I look in the cold case, and there is a 1 1b. tub of Gioia looking back at me.

Fanstastic! I bought the last one yesterday, but I bet they have more now. $8.50 for the 1 lb. container, and this stuff is simply great. Creamy, runny inside, clean tasting with a good bit of salty. Magic with tomatoes and good olive oil. Run, drive, or fly there and get some. You might call and make sure there's more, first.

And I challenge anyone on this board to walk out of surfas with only the item you went there for. It's not possible.
