Dinner with Aris, Danny and Rey @ CYMA, Trinoma ’09. This is my second time to have dinner in CYMA, a restaurant known for its Greek cuisine.  This time the occasion is both the Welcome and the Farewell Party of Rey and Danny.  We order the following:

  • Spinach and Artichoke Fondue – P 350
  • Roka Salata (Share) – P 460
  • Moschari Brizola (Greek Steak) – P 770
  • Salmon (Roasted Cedar Plank) – P 360
  • Local Seabass (Managat) – P 700 (P1 per gram)
  • CYMA Lamb Chops (Shoulder Loin) – P420
  • Side Spanakorizo – P 130
  • Baklava (Desert) – P 180

Here you will surprise to find a great selection of traditional Greek food that is home made.  Everything here is great and deserving of praise and admiration: food, ambiance and service.  This place is always full of people. Don’t settle for less. Come and enjoy Greek food in CYMA.

Special thanks to Quennie. She’s so welcoming,  friendly, and efficient in serving us all. Thanks too for the complimentary dessert – Baklava.

Ziggurat (Indian, African, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern Cuisine)

“The menu says they serve “cuisines of the lands where various Islamic Empires stretched around the early 12th to 14th centuries.” True enough, the menu boasts of Middle Eastern kebabs, Indian and Pakistan curries, plus Northern African and Ethiopian specialties.

The list is quite impressive, actually. For the kufteh (which literally means “pounded” in Persian and refers to any type of ground meat that has been formed into a meatball), Ziggurat not only has beef, lamb and chicken but also duck. For the tikka (cutlets or, according to the menu, “sliced pieces”), not only does the place serve chicken, beef and lamb, but they have tuna and shrimp tikka as well. Aside from your regular chicken or beef curry, there are fruit curries, the choices being coconut curry, which we are familiar with, as well as pineapple, banana, papaya and watermelon curry!

The ambience is very relaxed. You may opt to stay outdoors and hookah your way to the sunrise or stay indoors, which is open only until 1 a.m., and sit on any of the many pillows on the floor. For the road, you may have the TÆElla Ethiopian Honey Beer, which is a sweet albeit dark brew. Dont be fooled by this Cleopatra of a drink: its strength is masked by its sweetness.” – Inquirer

Ziggurat is not only offering us  their famous  Indian, African, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern cuisines but also an enjoyable adventure  to the tastes, sounds and sights of these places foreign to most of us.

This is my first time to come to the newly constructed Glorietta 5.  You will feel proud of the Philippines when you are here hehe.  The first restaurant I tried was Fish Out Of The Water. Seeing various foods already served at the tables of the other customers ahead of us made me hungry and  my  appetite for food suddenly got stronger and uncontrollable. We were fortunate to have ordered  that night “Thang Nang”  their Vietnamese Roasted Garlic Crab. Indeed, they are right in their claim that this is “probably the best crab meal you’ll ever have.” I can personally attest to it. I would definitely come back for more! This is really a good place for relaxing lunches and dinners with friends and loved ones.
