Cyma Greek Taverna
I was really excited when I learned that we will have our team dinner at Cyma.
Cyma is really one of the most popular restaurants in Greenbelt. It’s a Greek Restaurant and seemed to be a place where people would prefer to go to for dinner.
My boss ordered the ff. for all of us (except for the lemonade w/c I ordered hehe):
- Lemonade (Php 95)
We can choose either regular or bottomless. I chose bottomless. Very fresh drink & it’s good.
- Saganaki Flaming Cheese (Php 330)
OPA!! The waiters usually shout it when they serve something flaming & this is one of them. We ordered this Traditional Greek Cheese w/c is Kefalograviera cheese. Served with bread, nice way to start the meal.
Another flaming cheese you can choose is mozzarella, parmesan & evoo for Php 200.
- Pastisado – Greek Osso Bucco (Php 650)
Beef shank braised in Greek Tomato Sauce served over spaghetti. In short, this is bulalo in tomato sauce served over spaghetti hehehehe.
- Horiatiki Salata – Greek Village Summer Salad (Php 470)
Feta cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, capers, red wine vinagrette served w/ grilled garlic bread.
- Souvlakia Souvlaki – Greek Shish Chicken Kabobs (Php 320)
Chicken skewered with fresh vegetables. This is my favorite among the ones we ordered. Yummy yummy!
- Souvlakia Souvlaki – Greek Shish Lamb Kabobs (Php 430)
Lamb skewered with fresh vegetables. I didn’t try it, I was really full already
- Cyma Roasted Crabs (Php 750)
Roasted mangrove crabs with garlic, black pepper & evoo served with garlic pasta.
Don’t have much meat in the crabs but still OK.
- Giant Shrimp w/ Dill & Ouzo (Php 550)
served w/ tomato cream sauce & rice-stuffed peppers.
We can actually choose to side it with Greek roasted potatoes rather then the stuffed peppers.
- Cyma’s Gourmet Hummous (Php 350)
we can choose either steak, chicken or vegetarian. We chose vegetarian.
This is a unique dish. I like it.
- Moussaka (Php 250)
Greek’s national dish. Well it looked & tasted like lasagna heehhee.
description from the menu: layered seasoned ground pork & beef, roasted Japanese eggplant & Greek beechamel sauce.
- Paidakia (Php 595)
Char-grilled lamb ribs with Greek roasted potatoes.
Just like the other dish, we can also choose rice-stuffed peppers as the side dish.
- Lamb Gyro (Php 220)
marinated lamb w/ tomatoes, red onions, tsatziki & wrapped in pita.
We really are so full when we finished eating.
Just a lil vocabulary: EVOO is extra virgin olive oil hehehe.
I’m not that impressed with the food as I’m not fond of pasta, what I was really impressed on awhile ago was the service. Best service ever. Since I left early, I pretty am sure those waiters got a good amount of tip from us.
