A mozzarella bar

There’s nothing like fresh mozzarella cheese imported from Italy. Now you can have your fill of this delicious stuff at OBIKA, the delightful mozzarella bar at the upper level of the shopping mall at Century City. This charming place is a casual restaurant and wine bar that features fresh mozzarella flown in from Campagna every few days. There are nice antipasti, organic salads, prosciutto and salumi, luscious pizza-like cunzato bread and wonderful pastas, but the main attraction is the lovely cheese. The best way to experience it is the degustazioni which includes creamy, fresh burrata, classic mozzarella, superb ricotta and smoked mozzarella. Awesome! You can also get rolls of mozzarella wrapped around ham, smoked salmon or bresaola – air-dried beef. The wine list is all Italian and quite reasonable with a good by-the-glass program. OBIKA in Century City. Yummy!
