For my daughter’s post 2nd birthday celebration, we went ahead to Cyma Greek Taverna at Eastwood City. We called up to reserve our slot as we always do. That’s the first thing we do if we are to avail of a voucher!
We were a few minutes early and the place wasn’t packed yet, since we reserved an early dinner time slot. The staff were all accommodating. They showed us our table and asked for the vouchers. (One thing not to forget also! Bring the voucher!) We bought 2 vouchers. A voucher is good for 2 persons only. We were 4 plus my little princess.
We had a few pictures taken while waiting for our order. See how our little princess be all cute and ah, cuter!
Then some more pictures…
After sometime, the food finally arrived. First was the Soupa (soup) Mommy ordered (which I am sorry I forgot what it’s called). It was a French Onion Soup, the taste was just right.
Next to come was the Orektika (appetizer), I ordered their Spinach and Artichoke Fondue, which turned out was a house specialty and really appetizing. Just like the soup, the saltiness was just right. You can actually taste the spinach. The melting cheese on top made it yummier! It was served with 3 slices of pita bread and 3 slices of toasted garlic bread, which actually made us full already!
And here’s a picture of Daphne eating her pita bread. She loved it.
Our family loves anything lamb. So we ordered 2 dishes of lamb meat. The first was a Souvlakia Souvlaki which was skewered lamb meat with vegetables. More like the Kebabs of the Persians. The skewered lamb meat was served with 3 full pita bread and garlic sauce.
The other dish we ordered was another house specialty, it was the Paidakia. It was grilled lamb ribs served with potatoes.
Both lamb dishes were grilled to perfection I must say. The true taste of the lamb came out very savoury. I just squeezed some lemon juice over it and boom, yumminess! The lamb meat were also very tender.
As much as I would like to try their Glyka (desserts), there’s no more room. That is why I would go back to Cyma again, maybe sooner than later, to try out the other specialty dishes and of course, their desserts. Rating? I give it 5 out of 5 stars. Cyma makes a very healty choice of a restaurant for me and my family! Good food, good service, good ambience – what else could we ask for?
