Burrata cheese in OC?

We recently went to Barolo by the Sea on Balboa Island and tasted Burrata cheese for the first time. It was beyond fabulous. Where can I buy the rich, creamy kind of Burrata cheese in Orange County? I live near Irvine. I don't want just ANY kind; I'm looking for the BEST!

    1. You can find it at Wholefoods and Sapphire pantry in Laguna.

      1. Wholefoods and Bristol Farms has it!

          I had tried it from Claro's, Trader Joes and Bristol Farms. Bristol Farms wins hands down.

        2. Gelson's has been carrying it for over a year or so too - I actually like theirs better than Bristol Farms & think you get more for your money. Just be sure and check the dates where ever you buy it - nothing more disappointing than a past it's sell-by Burrata...

          1. Claro's carries Belgioso brand burrata, I think.

            Does anyone know where to get Gioia in OC?

                Thanks! Too bad no more MV location, but NB will do.

                  Didn't know the MV location closed. When did that happen?

                    Very very recently... last week? Might have been the week before.
