History and Background:
Meal courtesy of Pulia
Invitational bloggers brunch was a burrata sensation. An event pulled together by Sheepa from foodthatmakesyousmile.com. (Try count the number of times I mention ‘burrata’ in this post)
Before Pulia, I confess that I’ve never had a burrata. I knew it was some sort of cheese but that was it. After Pulia, I think I may have converted into a burrata obsessed cheese lover.
The first outside of its Italian borders, Pulia focuses on regional italian food from Puglia the south of Italy. Situated on Stoney Street just by Borough Market, the area is no stranger to good food.
Burrata apparently, is one of Puglia’s most famous exports, something that Pulia is renowned in London for. We had the chance to see how burrata is made from a cheese specialist, Dominico.
Watching the Pulia team make burrata was certainly an eye opener, made fresh and ready, we tried burrata both cool and warm. An impressive display had me craving for more and we were so full!
Pulia serves a wide variety of regional specialties and the deli style cafe is perfect for coffee catch ups and small eats. Croissants were delicate and flaky, complemented with capocollo and scamorza and the taralli bowl was particularly addictive.
The spinach and mozarella omelette made a nice snack too, if served as a warm version that would be even better!
Smoked Salmon with Scrambled eggs
This was good. Satisfactory but nothing particularly amazing, I love salmon though so I had more than my fair share of this…
My greed for food continued as I was eyeing up the pasticiotti and lemon custard tart as it was served for desserts. Mandarin olive oil made a nice touch which is available for purchase already bottled up on Pulia’s shelves.
Definitely a place that I recommend for casual weekend or brunch dining. Prices are decent too.
Service: Friendly staff and very hospitable
