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.

All photos are taken with my Samsung Note 4 or Sony NEX-F3 unless stated otherwise. Thanks for dropping by!

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.

Gold Leaf, Preston

Chinese banquet; fit for a king. 
There is nothing that I love more than eating Yum Cha or 49275-coursed menus with my family. These photos were taken in January for Papa Chau's birthday! I really cannot elaborate any further about how stupendous and delicious the entire experience is. The food is gourmet - as you can see from the images below... you cannot go wrong when you have oysters, pippies AND lobster in yo belleh!!! Prawn crackers at the beginning and freshly cut fruit served at the end is complementary, which is a bonus because let's face it, everything that is free is good. The best food to win me over with is seafood. As you can see below we had a lot of it but when you're splitting it between many people then your portions are obbbbviously smaller. Hence why we ordered side dishes of chicken, chinese brocolli with oyster sauce and a clay pot full of bok choy, mushrooms, tofu and other bits and pieces that I don't remember.

If you haven't been to Gold Leaf, you probably haven't lived... There is one located in Preston, Docklands, Springvale, Burwood and my most favourite, Sunshine! If there isn't one close to you then you make sure you make the effort to visit one because it will be worth every moment of your time and money. Sunshine is my favourite because their dumplings are the best but the toilets freak me out because they are really disgusting.

All of these photos of amazingily greasy, chinese food are so much win, I'm actually contemplating going after exams in celebration as I type this post up! I had my first examinlametion today and it went down aite. Can't wait until this is all over!!!
