If you follow me on Instagram, you can easily tell that I have a special kind of love for Burrata. But what exactly is a burrata? For starters, it’s a fresh Italian cheese made from Mozzarella and Cream and is usually served fresh and soft. From my humble experience, I found these burrata dishes to be the best in Dubai. Enjoy! <3
- Marina Social – This modern British Italian cuisine is located in Dubai Marina and what I loved about their burrata was the 25-year-old balsamic dressing in addition to the fact that it comes inside fresh tomatoes. Brilliant!
- Zahira – This one is by Chef Greg Malouf and is a Middle Eastern cuisine with a twist. I was blown away by the Foul Mudames in addition to the burrata itself and I think it’s worth a try and perfect for vegetarians.
- Lima – The new modern Peruvian hotspot in Citywalk. The restaurant is licensed and what I loved about the burrata dish was the mixture of heirloom tomatoes, mixed leaves, and the famous granadilla fruit. It took my taste buds on a beautiful roller coaster ride.
- Frankies – Oldies are goodies at one of the classic Italian restaurants in JBR. I loved the fresh creamy burrata with simple ingredients of basil, pesto, cherry tomatoes and aged balsamic.
- Solo Restaurant – This Italian restaurant at the Raffles Dubai serves burrata that is so fresh with olive powder and smoked yellow tomato salsa. It’s one of the most underrated restaurants in Dubai. I found everything on the menu to be fresh, juicy and tasty.
- Bombay Bungalow – This is the newest Indian restaurant in JBR. I was blown away by the Chicken Masala with burrata, a combination that I never had before. This is a must-try when you visit and from service to decor to food, this place will leave you with a nice dining experience.
- Al Fresco – This is an authentic Italian restaurant located at the Crowne Plaza on Sheikh Zayed Road and is considered as one of the old Italian restaurants in Dubai. The food is a hit and miss but I will tell you this – go for the burrata, carpaccio, ravioli, and pizza. The burrata has a generous truffle amount all over and tastes so good!
- BAZXAR -If you’re in DIFC for work and want to enjoy an amazing lunch with great food and quality without paying a fortune, then Bazxar is definitely your place. This burrata was one of the best dishes they have on the menu and competes with the best fine dining restaurants quality wise. It comes with edamame, cranberries, truffle and cherry tomatoes on top.
- IZU – This brasserie recently opened at Citywalk and is owned by the famous chef behind the opening of La Petite Maison and La Serre which both have amazing burrata as well. What I like about this one was the pesto and sweet peppers. It was classic creamy yet had a sweet kick which I loved.
10. Couqley – This French bistro from Beirut opened in 2016 in JLT and I personally think that the food is phenomenal. From this creamy burrata to medium well steaks to desserts, it will not disappoint and it’s definitely worth a visit.
What do you think of my choices? Did I miss anything? What’s your favorite in Dubai?
