I wanted to try something different after watching Sherlock Holmes 2. So, I decided to eat something Greek. I am fond of Mykonos and I dream of going there someday. So, maybe dining at Cyma will make me experience a little bit of Mykonos.
Inside Cyma, it looks like the tavernas in Greece that I see on TV. The combination of blue and white makes me feel like the beach is just outside.
For starters, we tried the Cyma Chopped Salad (Php320). This salad is full of freshness. With all those greens, chopped tomatoes, sliced pears, sun-dried tomatoes, and blue cheese, you’ll definitely ask for more. It’s a symphony of flavors – sweet, sour, and salty. I especially like the crumbly texture and strong flavor of blue cheese.
Isabel had Chicken Gyro (Php160). It’s a better version of the regular doner or shawarma that we usually find in food stands in most malls. The bread is thicker than the doners or shawarmas that we know. The Chicken Gyro has a different taste. I am not sure if its the herbs or the chicken – it’s all Greeky. I love it!
I had the Pastisado – Greek Osso Bucco (Php380). Osso Bucco meat braised with veggies and in white wine and broth. Tomatoes are mixed into the broth. The meat commonly used is veal but for this one, they used beef shanks. Osso Bucco means bone with a hole. The tasty marrow in beef shank totally won me over. By the way, the Osso Bucco was topped on a bed of spaghetti.
I would definitely go back to Cyma. Maybe next time I’ll something with fish and those tasty Greek dips. Opa!
Spread some awesome..ness..
