The spanner crab manti or Armenian dumplings were also quite different to any dumplings I've had before. A mixture of Asian and Middle Eastern flavours, the yoghurt provided quite intense herby flavours.
So far the night was full of unique flavours, which will win or lose some people. I preferred the trout over the dumplings, but my friends were not won over by either dish.
Last of all we ordered the BBQ chicken. Surprisingly it was not as flavoursome as the other dishes, as it relied more on the accompanying tahini and sides. The dish was not bad, and some of the chicken a little pink close to the bone, but edible.
I think I was more impressed by the smaller dishes. A friend had also recommended their desserts, but unfortunately we didn't have the time or stomach to try them!
I wouldn't mind giving Sezar another try to try more variety from the menu. Unfortunately it's a bit pricey for the size of the dishes so it may not be for a while.
However, the service was swift and attentive and the cuisine provides something a little different for the Melbourne scene, if you feel adventurous enough to try it! I do feel that it may not be too far from some European and Mediterranean cuisines, so perhaps it won't feel as exotic to those people.
You can take a look at their full menu here. If you've tried it or have a bit more knowledge on Armenian cuisine, feel free to comment below!
