Cyma Greek Taverna

I went to Eastwood recently to use a voucher for a skin treatment I bought a few months back. Luckily, a college friend (who's working in Eastwood) was willing to meet up with me for dinner afterward. We ended up eating at Cyma Greek Taverna.

It's been a while since I've been to a Mediterranean restaurant and I missed eating Mediterranean food.

Cyma Greek Taverna is one of the few Greek restaurants here in Manila. For me, Mediterranean cuisine is one of the healthiest food. Meals are usually with vegetables, olive oil, and yogurt. Kebabs are usually with lots of herbs partnered with wheat pita bread.

For this dinner, we got the following:

I usually don't order appetizers since I find Mediterranean dishes heavy. But the server convinced us, so we got Saganaki Cyma Original (Php 200).

Saganaki (Cyma Original)

Saganaki is pan-seared cheese. Cyma has two kinds: Cyma Original and Traditional Greek. Cyma Original is a mixture of Mozzarella and Parmesan with EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil). and yes, the server will flame it in front of you and the crew will cheer: OPA! (a Greek cheer).

Saganaki is a very good way to start a meal. Though you must consume it immediately so the cheese would not stick to the pan.

For our main dishes, we got Souvlakia Souvlaki or Greek Shish Kabobs. I got Chicken Souvlaki (Php 340) and my friend got Pork Tenderloin Souvlaki (Php 345).

Souvlakis are two skewers of shish kabobs with parsley salad, yogurt garlic sauce, and warm pita bread on the side.

My verdict: I loved it! I love that the meats are so chunky yet so tender. I could really taste the herbs it was marinated in. It was so filling that I only finished one skewer.

Overall, I loved the whole experience. The crew was very attentive that I didn't have a hard time calling their attention every time I need something. And yes, I love my take away paper bag too.

I'd love to go back to Cyma soon and try their other specialties.

To Cyma: OPA!!!
