Cycle 5 – Item 254
16 (Tue) September 2014
at Cyma Greek Taverna
-Ermita, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines-
The food at Cyma Greek Taverna had previously been described on GMTD as “absolute perfection,” prepared by a “masterful executive chef.”
Probably due to a change in ownership – altering the menu, purchasing inferior ingredients, replacing the kitchen staff with rank amateurs – the food has become crap. I’d suspected as much on a visit last month, when the change in menu had presaged the bad things to come, immediately realized by the lousy food on the table. Benefit of the doubt, I reserved a definitive conclusion for when I could return and compare with tried and true dishes. Tonight’s meal served as that confirmation.
