Dinner at Cyma

Cyma is easily becoming one of my favourite restaurants, mostly because of the Roka Salata. I would come more often if I weren’t scrimping on food expenses as of late.

Service is great on a Saturday, I suppose it was not such a busy night. I had unpleasant experiences in the past with slow orders and inattentive waitstaff.

Saganaki (P200), served in a sizzling plate with herbed bread. Behold the waitstaff shouting OPA! as they serve this dish.

Roka Salata, family size (P680, more than enough for 4 people). Arugula, lettuce, sun-dried tomatoes, candied walnuts, and generous shavings of parmesan. It’s such well-balanced salad with the right amount of sweetness and tang. I cannot believe I didn’t discover this any sooner. I can eat it every day!

Moussaka (P250). Ground meat, eggplant, and Greek bechamel sauce.

Hirine Brizola (P450). 3/4 inch thick grilled pork chops with roasted potatoes. Juicy and cooked just right.

Chicken Souvlaki (P340). Grilled chicken skewers with spinach rice and pita.

    Roka Salata is the only salad I truly enjoy. <: I love it! My friends are always surprised when I suggest we order it because I don’t like veggies, hehe.
