Bocadillo De Pescado

Presenting six very compelling reasons to visit MoVida this weekend

MoVida’s acclaimed founder, Frank Camorra, recently spent some time back in the Britomart eatery’s kitchen, crafting a delectable new menu centred on the inventive Spanish-inspired fare he’s globally know for. As always, the focus is on made-to-share, tapas-style dishes, crafted with passion and precision. Joining many of the iconic dishes MoVida has become known for, both locally and globally, is an edit of tasty newcomers which marry the depth of flavour and diverse textures typical of Spanish cuisine, with an inherent simplicity and focus on quality ingredients.

From a trio of tasty new skewers to elevated sliders, Catalan canelones, and an unmissable dessert, here, we round up our picks from the enticing new menu. Salud.

01. Bocadillo De Pescado

We’re reluctant to refer to these tasty morsels as sliders, but we’re also not sure what else to call them, given they are a mini burger-sandwich hybrid, of sorts. Light, crispy gurnard, housemade aioli, and guindilla peppers are sandwiched in a pillowy soft bun, making for an entirely satisfying starter or share plate for the table.

Pincho De Buey

02. Pincho De Buey

A duo of delectable skewers, here, flavourful slow-cooked wagyu beef rib with sherry and onion glaze is finished in the Josper, resulting in a sticky, smokey, satiating snack.

03. Pincho De Cerdo

The Korobuta Whitehart pork on these decadent skewers is marinated in Adobe spices — beautifully cut through with the accompanying pickled garlic and crème fraîche.

Pincho De Pollo & Pincho De Cerdo

04. Pincho De Pollo

And, perhaps the tastiest iteration of all on the skewer front, is the barbequed Moorish spiced chicken thigh with horopito salsa picante, sesame, and yoghurt. Served in a set of two, trust us when we say you’re going to want to keep both to yourself, with perhaps another round on the cards.


05. Canelones

Everyone loves canelones (or cannelloni, as it’s often referred to), and MoVida’s iteration takes the beloved pasta dish to new heights. Here, Catalan-style canelones are filled with slow-braised duck and porcini, baked in a nutmeg brandy velouté. Simply sublime.

Arroz Con Leche

06. Arroz Con Leche

And no visit to MoVida is complete without indulging in one of the eatery’s delectable desserts. This newly added delight is Camorra’s take on a rice pudding, served with a beautifully tart and subtly sweet poached rhubarb compote, and topped with rose ice cream.
