Entrée at Cyma

@ mirandablue
Hungry stomachs brought us to Cyma, a Greek-inspired taverna, in Eastwood one Wednesday night when we couldn't find a certain restaurant.   It's been a while since I last dined at Cyma, and was looking forward to the waiters shouting "Opa!" when flaming saganaki was served.  U and I wanted a Greek salad but we were famished and wanted something quick [or I would faint!].  The waiter brought us Htipiti---a plate of warm pita bread with dip of creamed feta cheese, hint of roasted spicy peppers and extra-virgin olive oil.  This meze relieved our hunger until the salad was served.

My salad was Tonnos Salata, a dish of mixed greens with seared Ahi tuna, roasted bell pepper, black olives, sun-dried tomatoes, toasted walnuts, feta cheese and summer herb vinaigrette dressing.

@ mirandablue

I always enjoy the distinctive taste of Greek food, and Cyma is worth coming back to.  Will post the main course next week (if I don't forget :p).


Oh, and spotted a celeb at Cyma---Aiza Seguerra and party were in the next table.:p

Greek/Medi food - is my weakness.

We're on a "tipid" mode this month so we cook falafel and the works for dinner this week - tastes just like the one in the restos. Brought some to co-worker who liked it better than the ones in teh restos. :)
