Spanish Cheese 101: Queso de Valdeon

15 AUG 2014 We love our cheese. We love our Spanish cheeses. Spanish cheeses are robust and honest, tasting of the herds that provided the milk they were made from and reflecting the land in which they were made. One of the charismatic Spanish cheeses is Valdeon. This is a piquant blue cheese made from...

Bread For Change

Bread For Change

Following the success of our involvement with UNICEF’s Bread For Good campaign, we realised there was a unique opportunity to help make a difference within the community across our restaurants.

The Bread For Change campaign launched in July 2012 with the generous support of our customers and staff.

Every one-three months we work in partnership with a charity and raise funds through an optional $1 bread donation.




When we opened the doors to MoVida in Hosier lane, Melbourne in 2003 no one knew what to expect. Here was this little bar on a graffiti covered cobbled lane near the

cathedral serving Spanish tapas and shared plates in a down lit room playing funky tunes.

It’s the kind of place you can come in for a beer and a jamón croquetta at the bar and then move across to a table and share a plate of slow

braised lamb, some patatas a lo pobre and down some seriously good Spanish red wine.
