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.

Myer Mural Hall - High Tea

High Tea has always been my favourite pass time. Spending a mere $30-$50 to receive a three tiered tray full of sandwiches, scones, quiches, macarons and cake!!!!!!!!!!
Drinking tea out of pretty teacups.
Observing the decor.
Breathing in the sweet aromas.
Why would anyone complain about luxuriously eating food?!

When the ladies from work prompted to attend high tea at the Myer Murall Hall, I could not resist. I must admit I was rather reluctant to pay $70 for the experience, but I do not regret it at all. Going up six levels of the Myer Bourke St building felt like I was entering a whole new world. Hidden away upstairs, the ballroom was surrounded by walls of eight famous murals. It felt as though it was rich in culture from the 18th/19th circa. The feeling was so surreal, imagining people from upper class backgrounds that attended lavish gatherings at the Myer Mural Hall, built and owned by Sidney Myer. We were about to witness this in motion, but with a 21st century spin to it.

Imagine being greeted by good looking male waiters with glasses of champagne, live jazz music, expensive china, and finger food (lots of it). The menu was poorly chosen, but the sandwiches were my favourite! Scones are a given, they are everyones favourite because you get the best of both (jam and whipped cream) worlds.

^ adorable waiters. The uniform makes them look like crazy scientists though.
^ champagne showers
^ Table 17. We were surrounded by strangers but it didn't even matter. Everyone was so happy and lively and relaxed. 
^ Sparkling water, tea, juice and champagne. Everything but normal water.
^ chicken mayo sandwich (how cute is the plate?!)
^ my favourite photo of all time. I love that split second that milk hits the tea cup! It looks like a really cool explosion.
^ the food was really mediocre to be completely honest.
the jam for the scones was delicious though! like something fresh off a farm. 
^ expensive Chinaware. I wonder where you can purchase this from.
^ live music was heaven to my ears
^ view from the top of the staircase. Tables and tables ready for Sunday brunch.
^ the macarons were really bad... I wonder who caters for the Myer Mural Hall because it was really bad. They should invest in La Belle Miette macarons.
