Maybe you’re an avid homecook, or maybe you just really, really love cheese. There are days where the cheese available at major supermarkets just won’t do, and you’re looking for something that will really elevate your meal. Burrata cheese might look like a ball of mozzarella from the outside, but make no mistake. It’s outer casing is solid mozzarella cheese, but the inside is stracciatella and cream, giving it an unusual, soft texture.
With a plethora of Italian restaurants, Singapore has no shortage of great places serving up burrata dishes. But if you’re looking to take things into your own hands, make sure to check out these 10 specialty shops where you can buy burrata cheese in Singapore!
Shaped by a decade’s worth of travels, The Cheese Ark is a collector of authentic, old-fashioned cheeses. Since they source their cheeses directly from cheesemakers in Europe, the shop operates slightly differently and needs some getting used to. You might not be able to find a specific brand of cheese since the shop only works with small traditional farms, and the lineup changes every week as new cheeses peak and become ready. The best way for you to shop at The Cheese Ark and to pick up the best burrata you can possibly get is to pay them a visit at their store at Stirling Road.

Best served fresh with a little olive oil and salt, accompanied with salad leaves and tomatoes!
