Fellowship: Cyma Greek Taverna

Yesterday morning I woke up with thoughts of eating Hummus for breakfast. I've yet to learn to make one, so I spent more time in bed daydreaming about my first time eating at Cyma. Pastor Dave invited the core team, then composed of six people, each with a +1 for dinner at Eastwood.

My knowledge with Greek cuisine was very limited to Shawarma (gyro), kebab (souvlaki), and lots of olive oil. Luckily, Michele was very eager to help me and my brother.cyma-hummous

They ordered hummus as our meze. How I wish it was unlimited.. But that would spoil my dinner :P


Being the cheese lover that I am, I enjoyed the Spinach and Artichoke Fondue which has sun-dried tomotoes and feta. However, the surprise came with the second Orektiko, the Saganaki or Flaming Cheese! The waitress lit the mix of mozzarella, parmesan and evoo and shouted their signature "Opa!" with the others. We got it in video but I don't have a copy.


Our salates, Roka Salata, had lots of candied walnuts and parmesan shavings. The dressing was flavorful but not empowering.



After looking over the menu a couple of times, my brother chose chicken souvlaki (shish kebob) while I got a moschari (beef) specialty dish called Moussaka. The national dish of Greece is eggplant based with minced beef and pork and best eaten warm. I feel full halfway that I decided to take the rest home.


It's funny when everyone's bloated and finds room for dessert haha! I feel sleepy already but a minute later, I saw a Glyka Platter on our table. Sorry, I don't remember the names of the desserts :(


*sigh of contentment*

This is my first time eating at a Greek restaurant so I don't have a basis for comparison. I do see this frequently a year before on my Facebook dashboard because one of my friends always dine here. I love the atmosphere and the service was excellent. It's gonna be a splurge but I'd love to be back at Cyma again ♥
