Grecian affair at Cyma

cymaThis newly renovated restaurant made me happy when it opened its doors again. I was saddened by its closing near my area. I can still faintly remember the “opa” moments I had with my family at that branch. So when this one finally opened, it was a welcome sight to my eyes.

cyma_2cyma_1cyma_4cyma_7cyma_3cyma_5cyma_6I can’t remember how this one looked like before but it has this modern Greek chic feel. Blue and white details were everywhere. That row of empty bottles was a nice addition to the décor. With the Greek gods and goddesses watching over us, it felt regal to dine here.

Their iced teas are freshly mixed which makes it inconsistent at times. If you get the darker kind, it tends to be too sweet or having that strong tea flavor.

cyma_baklava1I’m always used to having cake as a dessert or even ice cream. So when we ordered this, I found it very refreshing and cultural. Made with mixed nuts, namely, walnuts, pistachios, almonds and cashews, and drizzled with warm orange honey syrup, it was naturally sweet. The outer crust was flaky which provided that good balance to the nuts layer. In my opinion, this is a healthier alternative to the usual sweet desserts.

cyma_9cyma_8This restaurant will surely fill you up with its healthy and delicious Greek dishes. Though it may be a bit pricey, it is worth it as you get not only good food but good service too. So if you’re looking to dining healthy, have an affair at this resto.
