Sezar

I've been a fan of The Black Toro in Glen Waverley for a long time, so when the team opened Sezar in Melbourne it was immediately on my list of places I had to eat. Just needed to find the perfect excuse, and a night out on the town with my mum was it.
 
Thanks to the vagaries of public transport we arrived half an hour before our 8.30pm booking, but that was no trouble for the staff, and we were seated immediately. Our lovely waitress introduced herself, provided the menus, and explained how their concept of small, medium and large plates worked.
 
 
We ordered cocktails to drink while we perused the menu; the Mrs Maskal for myself (below) and the Sezar Express for my mum.

 
Then the food.
First came the Hervey Bay Scallops and the Spinach and Feta Boreg off the small plates menu. I'm not normally a seafood fan but these are the best scallops I've eaten. The boreg pastry was so flaky and light that it melted in the mouth.
 
 
 
Then the Spanner Crab Manti; dumpling stuffed with crab with a gorgeous citrus hit.
 
 
And then the Pork Belly, accompanied by the Chermoula Zucchini.
 
 
 
Already I was in food heaven. And then we got our large plate: the Spiced Beef Cheek with rice, and a side of Mujadarra (braised lentils and rice) to go with it.
 
 
At this point the cocktail was long gone, so we chose to accompany the main with a glass of Coombe Farm Pinot Noir.
 
And no meal is complete without dessert. My mum chose the baklava, while I selected the Chocolate Marquis. It was absolutely exquisite, and I'm sad to say it defeated me with it's richness.
 

 
 
This restaurant also offers two great banquet options; $55 with baklava for dessert, or $65 with the dessert tasting plate. Next time I'll give this a go, as you really cant go wrong with anything on the menu here.
