Burrata is rather remarkable, but @antidotebar.sg found a way to make it downright divine. How, you ask? Well, first you aburi (flame sear) the cheese ball, then you season it with miso paste and chive oil for maximal flavour. Anti:dote’s Aburi Burrata ($28++) was so good that I largely overlooked the charming cocktail it was paired with. If you manage to get an alcoholic like me to pass over alcohol in favour of something, you just know that something is truly exceptional.⠀

The Aburi Burrata is exceptional indeed, as the molten, impossibly stretchy cheese is flavoured with the deep sapidity of the miso. The normally mild flavoured burrata is transformed into a creamy, rich and umami flavour bomb, which is so supremely savoury it fulfils a primal need. The chive oil perfumes the burrata with an intoxicating herby aroma, and adds complexity to the cheese with its herbaceous properties. Even the Crystal Bread provided to complement the burrata was perfect. A crusty exterior conceals a slightly crisp interior, and these bread slices hold up very well to the luscious wetness of the burrata. The Aburi Burrata was perfect. Perfect. Everything. Down to the last minute details.⠀

Thanks for hosting us @antidotebar.sg, and thanks for letting me tag along @wobblethebui!
