Gioia Cheese Co/So El Monte
I am looking a rich, creamy Burrata cheese and found this place online. Is it fabulous Burrata or just okay? Also, if I drive an hour to get there, do you know of any good places for lunch near there? Mexican food?
Read up on the cheesemaker beforehand -- he brought burrata to the U.S. and supplies most of the top restaurants, so it doesn't sound like you're going to do much better in this country.
I'm sure there's some good Mexican too but pho seems to be the specialty of South El Monte. Here's one suggestion.
9646 Garvey Ave, South El Monte, CA 91733
I read somewhere, possibly LA Magazine, that this is what Mozza serves. Regardless, it is absolutely fantastic with just some basil and fresh heirloom tomato. The quality of tomato is important so you'll probably have to wait until summer to get the full picture.
