THE SECRET IS THE CHEESE
Sometimes it’s the simple things that are indeed the best. Why complicate matters if you don’t have? It’s that concept that propels Burrata House, whose motto is ‘great ingredients make great food’, soar above the competition.
At Burrata House, they source the freshest ingredients straight from Italy to create a delicious and healthy burrata panini. The powers that be claim, “We ensure our cheese is the most authentic available in the United States.”
Just as an FYI, Burrata is a fresh Italian cow milk cheese made from mozzarella and cream. It has an unusual and soft texture to go with a phenomenal rich and creamy taste. At Burrata House, where the burrata comes from Di Stefan Cheese Co., the family that introduced burrata to America, the spotlight shines brightly on the burrata, which is pure, sweet, and fresh.
And in keeping with the simple is best mantra, the menu at Burrata House is simple but sensational.
One of the must-have paninis to get is the Crudo where Rosetta bread, burrata by Di Stefano Cheese Co., prosciutto crudo, Italian EV olive oil, organic tomatoes, arugula, salt and pepper come together to create a fresh sandwich that simply delights.
Another favorite is the Bresaola with Rosetta bread, burrata by Di Stefano Cheese Co., bresaola (Italian cured beef), Italian EV olive oil and lemon, balsamic glaze, organic tomatoes, arugula, salt and pepper.
All menu items can come as sandwiches or salads. And a definite favorite salad of mine is the Turkey Bowl with field greens, burrata by Di Stefano Cheese Co., smoked turkey breast, Italian EV olive oil, organic tomatoes, arugula, salt, pepper and farro.
For healthy eaters, there’s even Ahi Tuna (raw) to choose from as a salad or panini. Each comes with sashimi grade ahi tuna, Italian EV olive oil, organic tomatoes, salt and pepper. While it’s a solid heathy choice, I saw go for the burrata—after all, it’s what it’s all about.
There are two Burrata Houses to get your cheese fix. There’s the tiny West L.A. shop at 3272 Motor Avenue, and a stall at Grand Central Market, located at 324 S. Hill Street, in Downtown L.A.
Serving both the west and east side of town, getting your fill of “cuore Italiano (Italian heart) has never been this easy. At Burrata House, the simple dishes and are sensational delight.
