Hubby Birthday

My husband celebrated his 35th birthday last October 12 at Cyma Greek Taverna Shangri-la Plaza. This restaurant is a recent addition to our list of favorites. We had lunch with his mom and brother.

Lenin and Marx (Interesting name, huh!)

Whenever we dine here, my husband never fails to order the Flaming Cheese. Nothing really special with the taste. After all, it's just mozzarella, parmesan and EVOO. We are actually paying P200 for the flame and the OPA! 

It was my first time to try the Roka Salata. This is one of their bestsellers and I've read great reviews about this salad. Roka Salata is a mix of fresh arugula (roka), chopped romaine lettuce, sun dried tomatoes, candied walnuts (yummy!), topped with shaved parmesan and drizzled with Traditional Greek Vinaigrette. I definitely LOVE this salad!

The Cyma Baby Back Ribs is so tender. It's juicy and falls off the bone. This is served with your choice of rice stuffed peppers or roasted Greek potatoes. This generous serving only costs P1200. I prefer Cyma Baby Back Ribs over the full slab I had at Outback.

For long life, we ordered Pastisado. This is a Greek Osso Bucco  -  Beef shank braised in Greek tomato sauce served over spaghetti. The Osso Bucco is very tender and tasty. It's actually delicious. Only we thought we'll enjoy it more if we have it with rice :D

I'm glad my mother in law liked the salad, the ribs and the roasted Greek potatoes.

And of course, hubby's (and mine) favorite dessert -- Skolatina! This is Cyma's molten chocolate cake served with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. The best molten chocolate cake ever!!!
