Last week, a few of us went for dinner at a newly opened kitchen/bar/club lounge at Sunway Giza, called MOVIDA.
What’s MOVIDA? The name means “Party” in Cuban street slang and “To Move or Movement” in Spanish.
The design of the place is fantastic.. with combination of lights, wood, glass and everything shiny. It’s definitely a place to be if you wanna take nice indoor photos.
Check out the interior yo! Shot this from 1st floor.
Let’s get on with ze food and drinks, shall we?
First off, we were greeted with beers on the table. Nice.
Starter. Toss with citrus oil, grapes, pineapple and cheese ball… Salmon damn nice.
Then came the sauteed prawns. It’s starting to get interesting. It’s prepared on grilled zucchini, aioli and aragula. Dono what these names ah? Nvm.. just eat only. LOL.
We shared this thing among 5 of us. Had to get the crew to cut for us ahah too big. The ingredients are; aioli, watercress, caramelized onion, gherkin and tomatoes.
To those who likes sweet/sour food, this is a MUST TRY. It has sauteed spinach, mango salsa and semi dried tomato. The fish is very soft and tender… and the sourness of mango and vinegar just rocks. haha
This one is the bomb. Has grilled vegetables, red wine sauce and boiled potatoes. Make sure you order it to be medium well and above as the medium we had was kinda rare… but still nice nonetheless.
Something more common. Spaghetti tossed with olive oil, chili, parsley, basil and not forgetting the seafood.
If you wanna try something more ‘asian’, order this seafood pineapple fried rice. Sure filling wan! ahah
Some drinks we had…
An even more common fried rice, served with chicken wings, papadam, acar and fried egg.
To tell you the truth, THIS IS THE BEST DISH AND I MELTED THE MOMENT I PUT THE LAMB INTO MY MOUTH!!!! Seriously.. damn nice… everyone laughed when I struggled to look for a chair as I tasted the lamb. Recommended.
Last but not least, we had the platter with chicken wings, sauteed lamb sausages, potato wedges and grilled squid. Goes very well with beer. MMmMmMM.
We left MOVIDA feeling happy, full and satisfied.(Daphne, Jae Shaun, Chammaine, Me, Isabelle, Janise, Simonso). THANKS BLUP-BLUP FOR INVITING!
MORE PHOTOS IN JULY!
