Movida Aqui, Melbourne

Next time you’re walking down the street, check out those with glazed eyes and nervous shakes. There’s a good chance that they’ve been to one of the three Movidas dealing the Spanish to Melbourne addicts.

Pincho de Tortilla – egg, potato, onions

Bocadillo de Calameres – a mini sanga of lightly battered and fried calamari with mayo… what’s the legal limit on these things?

Bomba – it really is a Catalan potato bomb filled with chorizo that detonates in the mouth. Silky smooth spud, slightly spicy, creamy tangy sauce to bring it all together.

Romesco de Peix – seafood mix with a deep lobster bisque.

Carrillera de Buey – slowly braised beef cheek in Pedro Ximenez on cauliflower puree.

Sopa Inglesa – strawberry and Pedro Ximenez trifle with crème catalan and candied almonds.

I’m stuffed and need rehab.

4.5 / 5 yums!
Where? 1/500-512 Bourke Street, Melbourne, VIC
What? Smalls between $4-7, Larges between $16-25
