Mozzarella Madness, Muu Muuzzarella Seaside, Naples(Na)

In Campania, marvelous fresh buffalo milk mozzarella cheese is available daily.  It's eaten  alone,   maybe with a bit of extra virgin olive oil, sometimes  with fresh tomatoes, or on a pizza.
Mozzarella di bufala cheese - A Campania classic and an idea that sparked a fire in the mind of Salvatore Maresca  when deciding to open up a restaurant that focused on something new...the new black, so to speak.

Muu Muuzzarella was born!  And there I sat, four years and three locations  ( plus a temporary restaurant in Sardinia) later.

I decided to visit their location which boasts a view of Napoli's seaside... Muu Muuzzarella Seaside on Mergellina's boardwalk.

Maresca and company have a philosophy.  Campania's gold incorporated  in various parts of a full menu.  Like the quick lunch I enjoyed that hot Thursday afternoon.  Take a look.

Then dessert.  I had heard so much about the cheesecake, that I couldn't resist!  This version - starring buffalo milk ricotta cheese - was topped with a wild berry sauce.
