Quick bites: Movida Aqui (Melbourne, Australia)

Why?

A Spanish tapas restaurant, with one hat from the Good Food Guide, I dropped by for a quick bite on my very late lunch break because:

  • tapas is quick; and
  • photos of the calamari burger were chasing me on the internet.

How was it?

Pretty good.

The olive oil accompanying the bread was divine with the sardines equal parts salty, rich and filling (the fact that they are served in a tin was pretty amusing as well).

I would say equally positive things about the calamari burger, which was more accurately a “slider”, but I thought there was way too much mayo compared to the calamari – however, I will still give it a second chance next time.

Where are the photos?
