1. the practice or art of choosing, cooking, and eating good food.

Good Food, Good Mood was established after I realised how often I was asking myself the difficult question of "Where and what should we eat today?". The Melbourne food scene truly makes us spoilt for choice, so I am hoping my honest reviews can act as a guide for any occasion - from cheap eats to fine dining, to burgers and pizza on cheat days, to fresh and healthy on cutting days. Recommendations on places to try and review are always welcome, just leave a comment.

P.S. Shoutout to my friends and family who dine with me - thanks for not picking up your cutlery when the food comes out so I can take all my food photos... y'all know my camera eats first haha.

MoVida Aqui

Eating Spanish food was definitely out of my comfort zone, but MoVida Aqui really knows how to make you feel settled in and welcome. The waiters are beyond exceptional, and the food was extraordinario. I rarely say that about places where I fine dine but this place shits on everyone, and I say that in the nicest way possible. They have a paella that is served in A HUGE BAMF WOK. The photo I uploaded does not give justice to how big it actually was. I think it was made for 2-4 people but we managed to finish it between two because it was THAT delectable. I went in December 2011 but haven't been back to MoVida because there are so many other places to explore... but I would DEFINITELY go back again when given the chance. From where we were sitting, we could watch the chefs prepare the foods which made it engaging and gave the restaurant a personal feel. If you guys get a chance to go, or even make plans to eat there, then definitely take up the opportunity! It's a hidden gem in the city, but remember to make a booking, and make sure the booking is at the correct MoVida's because there are two in the city!

anchovies with a sweet tomato paste
Cold Wagyu (my fav)
scallops (another fav)


  1. MoVida is the absolute best! Did you like the anchoa?

  2. I do agree! I don't like anchovies but I ate it anyways because I was hungry! The tomato sorbet was really good though! :)
