UGO Burrata Bar At South Melbourne Market

The first dedicated burrata eatery open at South Melbourne Market

The popularity of burrata is not waning and UGO Burrata Bar is satisfying all the cravings, now open at South Melbourne Market.

With at least 10 amazing dishes on the menu at any time, the team has created a range of seasonal combinations that pair the favourite oozy cheese with fresh local ingredients, many from South Melbourne Market, to suit any taste bud and mood.

Starring That’s Amore Cheese burrata, UGO Burrata Bar is the destination for cheese connoisseurs, those new to burrata and simply lovers of great food. Burrata is an Italian cow’s milk cheese made from mozzarella and cream, originating from Puglia, Italy. The outer casing is solid cheese; the inside contains stracciatella and cream, giving it an oozy, soft texture. 

So what’s on the menu? There really is something for everyone with the perfectly created seasonal burrata dishes.

Co-owner Dario Di Clerico is excited to have launched the concept to Melbourne, the first of its kind in Australia.

“To launch our first UGO Burrata Bar inside South Melbourne market just made sense. We have a long standing relationship with the South Melbourne Market and felt that the space deserves the very first concept of its kind. 

“Working with the South Melbourne Market team for our sister brand Cannoleria, they understand how we operate, and it just feels right. Plus, burrata is perfectly paired with fresh ingredients and there are plenty of those at the market so it is a win-win situation.

“There has been some debate around the perception by some that burrata is just a boring blob but we are challenging this with the amazing dishes we are serving up with burrata as the hero!

“We want to showcase that burrata and mozzarella are not only seasonal products, but delicious ingredients that can be paired up all year round.”

UGO Burrata Bar is open at South Melbourne Market now!
