Cyma Introduces a Healthier, Authentically Greek Menu
Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean letting go of things that tickle your tastebuds. Straight after your server puts down your mezedes and you finally have your first taste, you’re going to realize what we here at Juice.ph are talking about.
Drop by Cyma Greek Taverna with your date, the folks, or the gang—with their fantastic new menu and flexible serving options, you can even feed your entire clan. After serving ten years of memorable opa moments, Chef Robby Goco felt it was just about time to freshen up their traditional Greek menu with more interesting bursts of flavor that will suddenly make your senses go haywire. In every bite, you’re going to savor tastes and textures reserved for Olympians, and all you have to do is visit Cyma on an empty stomach.
Start with an order of Dips with Homemade Pita (PHP 695), where you can sample the refreshing taramosalata, smoky tzatziki, classic Kalamata hummus, the wonders of eggplant-based pine nut melitzonsalata, and feta cheese dip htipiti. “Heaven,” you’re going to end up singing at the top of your lungs. “I’m in heaven!“
For a new experience, try the Dakos (PHP 120), a light offering of tomatoes, feta cheese, capers, and oregano atop a slice of Cretan rusk. Take craving for an opa moment literally with the Saganaki with Figs (PHP 350), an extremely flavorful option for cheese-loving vegetarians with a sweet tooth.
Cyma is definitely a safe haven for pescatarians and carnivores alike. The seafood options on their glowing menu boast creativity. Have a taste of the fresh Whole Saranggani Sea Bass (PHP 700), a delightful dish with flavorful undercurrents of lemon, smoked salt, cracked pepper, Greek oregano, and olive oil—the five traditional basic ingredients of Greek food in a single offering. For fans of Roasted Alaskan King Crab Legs (PHP 850), you can have your fill along with cashew garlic pasta—just a heads-up—it’s a little bit spicy.
Out of all the wonderful additions, the star of the new menu would have to be the Kreatika (for 2 PHP 1,500/for 4 PHP 2,900/for 8 PHP 5,500), a smorgasbord of lamb keftedes, pork chops, beef rib finger kalamaki, lamb shoulders, and caper butter prawns all on one giant platter. Just the mere sight of the platter is quite overwhelming, and stuffing yourselves with it could make you tap out even before you finish, so be sure you’re either a demigod preparing for battle or an extremely hungry mortal before considering the beauty that is the Kreatika.
