Continuing my trend of being the world’s worst food blogger, here’s another review from a restaurant I went to back in 2015. MoVida Bar de Tapas is a popular tapas bar in Melbourne, Australia. Or at least it was back in 2015. Maybe their head chef murdered some children since then and its popularity has dropped off considerably. A quick internet search tells me this isn’t the case, so let’s assume they’re still popular and murder-free.
I don’t remember specifics, only that I ordered a lot of fishes in oils and they were all pretty delicious. Whenever I go to a Spanish tapas restaurant I view it as an excuse to eat things like anchovies and Spanish mackerel and other canned fishes because it’s possible I was a cat in a previous life. At least that’s how I rationalize my love of eating fish and catching rats and licking myself.
$4.50 anchoa (hand-filleted cantabrian artisan anchovy on crouton with smoked tomato sorbet)
$6.50 caballa ahumada (house cold smoked Spanish mackerel with pine nut gazpacho sorbet)
I filled in the information on the dishes I could find, but the other two you’ll just have to go by the image. One appears to be beef tartare, and the other probably fish in olive oil. Again, this is a Spanish tapas restaurant so half the menu is going to be some sort of seafood in olive oil.
Not much to say here, except that MoVida was the best Spanish tapas restaurant I had in Melbourne. It was also the only Spanish tapas restaurant I had in Melbourne, but let’s not get hung up on things like “details” and “facts” here.
