The Cheese Shop – OC Mix

The Cheese Shop is located in the OC Mix building in the SOCO center off Hyland and the 405 Freeway. The cheese offerings are great, the staff is very helpful and very knowledgable. Some of the favorites I’ve found are the Tintern, from Scotland, a truffle and saffron flavored cheese from Italy and Lamb Chopper a mellow but flavorful cheese that melts beautifully. At one point I needed a nice Bleu cheese that was sturdier than the one I usually buy (Point Reyes) and they recommended one that proved to be an excellent choice. Check out this delightful shop next time you are in the area. And there is so many other small shops in the OC Mix building – We Olive (for olive oil), Savory Spice Shop (for everything herbal/spicy), a great iced tea vendor and other food purveyors. And that is just inside the building. Once you’re outside, it’s another story — and another post.
