Frank Camorra is renowned for his fantastic Spanish restaurants. He and Head Chef Scott Stevenson have been serving exciting Spanish tapas down on Hosier Lane for many years. The cobblestone alleyway – including the exterior of MoVida – is full of colourful graffiti. Inside the pumping restaurant is a long bar and wooden tables throughout. It has a relaxed yet buzzing vibe.
With the range of delicious tapas and raciones on offer here, you will find it difficult to narrow down your choices! Caballa ahumada is an innovative and unusual dish of Spanish mackerel that has been cold-smoked in-house. It is topped with an ice-cold gazpacho sorbet and warm toasted pine nuts. Lomo de cordero comprises a roasted Flinders Island lamb loin that is sliced into pieces. The tender meat is enhanced with a smoky red mojo full of paprika and grilled peppers.
PSST! If you are not able to get a table at MoVida, try its cheap and cheery neighbour – MoVida Next Door.
