The month of July marks two special anniversaries in my life (work and personal). And what's the best way to celebrate? With food of course. Before this special personal anniversary day arrived, I was asking around what are the best places to eat. My team mate recommended I try Cyma. I've always been curious to try this place ever since the first "Opa!" that I heard.
On that special day, we headed out for Trinoma and Cyma is located at the cinema level along other restaurants around the garden. Since it was a Monday, there were few people around. I really like their interiors; it makes you feel you are inside a Greek house. It's cozy inside too.
Anyway, enough of my rambling and more on food! For appetizer, we got Saganaki - Mozzarella or flaming cheese served with garlic bread slices. And it really was flaming when served. The waiter literally set the platter on fire and shouted Opa! Too bad I wasn't able to take a picture of him doing that. Since bf is a big fan of garlic bread, he was very happy with this.

For main, I got Pork Souvlaki. It is served with two warm pita breads and yogurt garlic sauce. I also ordered a side of baked potatoes. It's super delicious but I wished the pork had been more tender.
Bf ordered the Bifteka or Greek Burger. It's made of wagyu brahman beef patty, peppered feta cheese, tzatzaki sauce, lettuce, arugula, and tomatoes. It also comes with a side of baked potatoes. I must say, the beef and cheese really complemented each other.
Oh, don't forget to get a serving of iced tea. It's refreshing :)
Thanks Meg for the recommendation! We'll definitely go back and try their other specialties. But it wouldn't hurt to try the real thing right? Ahem, ahem, Greece vacation! :P
