Melbourne Trip Part 2 - Movida

"C" made a booking for this busy place days ahead and I finally got a chance to try it out. Despite being tucked away in a back alley, many people definitely had no trouble finding it.

The following dishes we ordered either highly recommended by our sources or very popular with the neighbouring tables.

We just had to order their classic anchovy with smoked tomato sorbet as it was their signature dish. Next was a serve of cold Gazpacho soup.

We decided to go with some off menu items as well and gave this cured fish with radish a try.

Their twice cooked ox tongue in red pepper broth was most delectable, tender and tasty.

Now this off menu item was rather interesting. The fish fillet reminded me of what you would get in a Teochew restaurant. However, it was accompanied by a variety of pickled chillies which gave a nice Zingy twist to it.

Freshly picked clams cooked in white wine. Clams were juicy and tender, broth was sweet and garlicky. Yum~

Although this might not look very appetising at face value, however it's their house special slowly Braised Beef Cheek in Pedro Ximenez on Cauliflower Puree. Wonderful main-course and highly recommended.

On the overall, the food at this joint is rather tasty and in a huge variety to tickle your palate. I will have to try their other sister establishments back in Sydney too!
