I recently caught up with friends B & Z for a pre-work breakfast at the brand new MoVida Terraza. After reading Melbourne Gastronome’s gushing review, I was very keen to try it for myself.

As per its name, the restaurant is on a terrace, situated at the back of an office block:

Looking through the menu, there were lots of delicious breakfast options. Unfortunately for me, there seemed to be a real emphasis on wheaty/bready things with bocadillos, tortillas, torjillas (French toast) and cous cous. Wheat free (or potentially wheat free) meals were pretty thin on the ground – fruit and yoghurt, bircher muesli or huevos revueltos.

I opted for the huevos revueltos – scrambled eggs with Cumberland sausage (minus the toast):

Huevos revueltos

It arrived with toast, but I just ignored it.

The scrambled eggs were nicely done – good colour and cooked just the way I like them (not overcooked, not too runny). I think these scrambled eggs were probably laced with cream. The sausage was moist and porky with fennel through it. It was a pretty great breakfast but very rich, I think it probably needed some carbohydrate to soak up some of the richness.

B & Z both ordered the same thing – a cous cous porridge-type thing:

Honeyed cous cous - yum!

When this arrived I was supremely jealous of them and their ability to eat wheat. The cous-cous was sweet, milky and studded with dates, raisins and almonds and topped with an apple compote. They both really enjoyed it.

Overall, it was a great breakfast although I probably would avoid having an atkins-style scrambled egg and sausage fest if I go again. This is definitely recommended, particularly for the wheat-eaters of the world who will have lots of interesting breakfast options.

  1. Luckily I am a wheat eater and not much of an egg fan – so Movida Terraza sounds like the breakfast place for me!
