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.

Paesano International Buffet

A relatively new restaurant to add to Wheelers Hill, Paesano International Buffet offers many types of food ranging from Italian, Asian and Indian. They also have seafood for dinner (a big favourite of mine)! I was very impressed with the selection and quality of the food, and I usually don't eat at buffets regularly so this is a pretty big deal.

Wheelers Hill (for those who do not know) is next to Mulgrave or Glen Waverley, and is about a 26 minute drive from the CBD (according to google). I can tell you now that it is worth the drive because although the venue is unappealing to the eye compared to places like Kitchen Workshop, Mesh or China Bar Signature Buffet, the food was delectable at such a good price. Writing this post makes me want to go back and enjoy it a little better because it's one of those places that you can dress casually in and just have a good time. Upon arriving to the venue, there was so much to take in because some of the chefs stand around the buffet preparing food for you, they even make mini pizzas or stirfry! And there were hot chips and dim sims and sausage rolls as well! Win!!!

Unfortunately these are the only photos I could find. As you can see, I mostly took photos of the desserts, but I would have loved to take photos of the actual buffet if I weren't so hungry at the time! The first image is of seafood - if this doesn't ALREADY set a good impression of the place then... I don't know what will. Seafood (and I'm talking crabs, mussels, oysters, calamari, prawns) is the best. I would eat seafood everyday for the rest of my life if I could.

My most favourite thing at Paesano would have to be the chocolate fountain. I heard they bought a bigger one recently which is a bit exciting! Apparently kids stick their fingers in there but it's still good... it's still good................ :'(
