Me and my family tried some of Cyma’s Greek dishes and boy, we have nothing but kind words for their food. Cyma uses predominant ingredients of the Greek cuisine, while employing modern culinary techniques and enhancing the traditional dishes.
We started our meal with their famous Roka Salata. What I like most about their salad is that it stands true to what a salad should be – fresh and refreshing. It cleans your taste buds, preparing you for the feast to come.
Roka Salata- Php800.00 (Family)
Fresh arugula, chopped romaine lettuce, sun-dried tomatoes, candied walnuts, with shaved parmigiano. Served with traditional Greek vinaigrette.
Tirokafteri – Greek Cheese Pimiento- Php205.00
Creamed feta, spicy roasted peppers, sun-dried tomato, kefalotiri
Kalamata Hummus- Php155.00
Velvety, chickpeas, tahini, kalamata olive tapenade
Kotopoulo Lemonato – Greek Chicken Adobo- Php550.00
Braised lemon oregano chicken with garlic and evoo. Served with Greek potatoes and feta cheese
I’ve always been a fan of Cyma’s pasta dishes. Their pastas have a rich flavour, as they are very generous with their ingredients. If you’ll ask me which I’ll recommend, I probably won’t be able to give you an answer because I love all of them.
Greek Clams Pasta- Php750
I never order vongole pasta after having dry and uninspired versions too many times. When I tried this I was shocked at how good it was. The simple sauce made with white wine, olive oil, lemon juice, parsley and clam broth was absolutely perfect.
Pastisado – The Greek Osso Bucco- Php900.00 (Family)
Beef shank, Greek tomato sauce, bucatini pasta
Cyma’s servings are huge so you’ll get your money’s worth. Their “single serve”, for me, is good for two – three persons. For a better dining experience, I suggest you order a few dishes then share around so you could have a bit of everything.
