From burrata pizza to burrata salads, fresh burrata recipes and more. Here’s where to get this delicious cheese in Melbourne.

Vapiano’s burrata pizza 

What’s better than a thin crust, rich tomato sugo and premium prosciutto? When it comes served with a creamy burrata cherry on top. Vapiano on Flinders Lane and Bourke Street crowns one of their most popular pizzas with the soft, creamy cheese for your dining pleasure.

Lord Lygon’s burrata with fennel jam

Cheese and fruit: it’s an iconic duo as old as time. Watch the semi-soft delight fall away into a plate of caramelised fennel jam and tart balsamic at Lord Lygon. You can also find this perfect pairing on the menu at Nomad. Ask the staff what’s pouring from the lush wine list – we recommend pairing with a glass of pinot grigio.

Farmer's Daughters preserved lemon burrata

With three levels dedicated to Victoria’s best produce, you could go from dusk till dawn at Farmer’s Daughters. Start in the relaxed surrounds of the ground floor deli, where share plates pair perfectly with a bev or two. Burrata here is served with organic zucchini, smoked chili and preserved lemon.

Pascale’s burrata and tomato salad 

Slick city staycay spot QT Melbourne is known for its rooftop, but we can’t get enough of resident restaurant Pascale. The vibe is New Orleans French Quarter, but the menu leans European. A classic pairing of fresh burrata, heirloom tomatoes and lush basil leaves is the perfect way to start your meal.
