Burrata with tomatoes and basil on a bed of rocket
I still haven’t come down from my Italian food high/obsession following on from our recent trip to Italy although I do think we’re a bit poorer now for all the white truffles we’ve had since we’ve been back. Lucky they are seasonal !
What isn’t seasonal though, and what is increasingly more popular and appearing in menus across Singapore, is fresh mozzarella, and in particular, burrata.
So we were more than happy to visit our friend Beppe De Vito’s new venture in Duxton Hill, Latteria Mozzarella Bar.
The menu features eleven types of fresh mozzarella that Beppe imports twice weekly from Italy. D and I tried the knotted mozzarella from Puglia, and burrata, which we asked for served simply with tomatoes and basil. The Puglia cheese was lovely but paled into comparison with the wonderfully creamy burrata.
Rolled pork sausage
For my main I ordered the rolled pork sausage, and this came as three garlicky, porky snail-shaped sausages with flecks of sweet peppers, on a bed of sauteed mushrooms and a black olive tapenade. Great, earthy flavours combined on a plate.
I ended up doggy-bagging a lot of my main, firstly because the cheese starters were so filling, and I wanted to save space for dessert. We ordered one to share, and thank goodness because the tira misu is huge.
Add a bottle of prosecco and you have a wonderful and most civilised way to end a Monday. You could just as easily simply work your way through the menu of gorgeous mozzarella.
