burrata at costco!

Burrata at Foster City for 6.99 for 16 oz (4 small balls). It is good! I was suspicious as it has a sell by date until 1/10 and my experience is it usually last 2 or 3 days- maybe they just got it in and I was lucky. I've never seen it here before-FC does tend to have a good cheese selection. Not as good as what I got in Rome - but then again nothing I've had in the US has been equal.

  1. Yes, it is surprisingly good. I had dinner at my father's house last week and he had purchased some at the Richmond Costco. I was a little skeptical when he told me the price and the source, especially as he is a notorious cheapskate (as am I) who more than once has purchased meat and cheese of seriously questionable character because he got a "deal". Very fresh and yummy.

    1. Havent seen any Burrata at the bay area Costco stores recently... anyone??? I would love for them to have it in stock again.

        I think they just had it around Xmas last year and I'm hoping they will again....SOON. There wasn't any when I was there a few days ago :(

      2. My husband and I have recently been addicted to the Gioia burrata, which is $15 per tub at Cowgirl (but the tub is packed full of cheese; it doesn't come in balls). Definitely pricier than Costco, but if you're looking for something ultra-fresh and very tasty, I think well worth the splurge. Zuni serves this burrata, fwiw.

          A16 serves Gioia's as well. They have it flown in daily so it's always as fresh as possible.
