Mozzarella di Buffalo (buffalo milk mozzarella) has become something of a celebrated cheese in London lately with new mozzarella bars opening and fine dining establishments featuring it prominently on their menus. A good number of quality delis, pizzerias and restaurants around town now carry the proper white stuff. Here's a look at a few of the best.
Mozzarella & More
257 King’s Road, SW3 5EL
Nearest London Underground station is at Sloane Square or Fulham Broadway.
Mozzarella & More is the newest outlet (and concept) from the locally popular Made in Italy restaurant group. One part trattoria, one part mozzarella bar and one part deli, M&M is located just a couple of doors down from the original Made in Italy restaurant. It’s also the only restaurant in London producing its own mozzarella (they’ve got a production kitchen just across the river). So, the cheese in this case might not actually have made in Italy, but it's as authentic and as fresh as you're going to find outside southern Italy. They make their own ricotta, sausages, desserts and more at this lovely little Italian gem.
Unit 1 West Wintergarden, 35 Bank Street, E14 5NW
Nearest London Underground station is at Canary Wharf
Italian mozzarella champion Obikà launched its premiere London restaurant in Canary Wharf back in 2011 and has been wowing fans of freshly made Italian cuisine ever since. Purportedly Italy’s favourite restaurant group, Obikà’s focus is to offer premium Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP served alongside a typical assortment of Italian artisan products, such as Prosciutto Crudo di Parma DOP, Bresaola della Valtellina (cured beef) and Isle of Ewe smoked salmon along with a mouthwatering list of antipasti, hot dishes, freshly baked pizza and aperitifs. The “Campana DOP” business means it's made in the traditional region and method and has been granted “Protected Designation of Origin” by the European Union – in short, it's the real deal!
15 Saint Mary's Road, W5 5RA
Nearest London Underground station is at Ealing Broadway
A bit out of the way from central London in the west London borough of Ealing, Santa Maria may very well be the best pizzeria in London (and some say one of the best outside of Italy itself). It's well worth the trip if you truly love pizza (and it's on the way the Heathrow too)! Try the Santa Bufalina (vegetarian with tomato sauce, buffalo DOC mozzarella, extra virgin olive oil, Parmesan and fresh basil) for an amazing mozzarella mouthful!
59-61 Exmouth Market EC1R 4QL
Nearest London Underground Station is at Farringdon or Angel.
The “holy king” of London pizzerias, Santoré specializes in pizza al metro (by the metre). So don't be surprised to find pizzas passing through the dining room longer than some of the tables. Classic Neapolitan pizzas and dishes – and of course smartly sourced buffalo mozzarella – offered at reasonable prices are the stars at this local favourite.
20 Savile Row, W1S 3PR
Nearest London Underground Restaurant is at Oxford Circus or Piccadilly Circus
Aptly named restaurant located on London's famed street for tailors – Savile Row – Sartoria is an upscale and contemporary Italian restaurant where the food is as stylish as it is delicious. Sartoria's policy is to change its menu monthly to focus on a different part of Italy. May’s menu is a mozzarella lover's dream. A whole “treccia” – a two kilogram plaited mozzarella – is available for the rest of this month parties of eight people, priced at £80 (about $120) and served alongside grilled Mediterranean vegetables. Alternatively diners could opt for 125g of sliced treccia for £11 per person. Giant braided slabs of artisan cheese or not, an experience at Sartoria is to be savoured.
