Mykonos on the Bay – Singapore
There aren’t many Greek restaurants in SIN City, in fact, I think there are only two places here serving authentic Greek food and one of it is Mykonos. Located in the chi-chi enclave on Quayside Isle, i.e. a private island for rich people and their boats, the price is somewhat on the slightly higher end but the food is stellar. I ate for almost five hours!
The Greek salad came with a large slab of feta cheese, Kalamata black olives, sweet tomatoes and a drizzle of olive oil, which was great for my dining companions who love feta cheese as there was more than enough to go around.
We also had sharing dishes of grilled octopus, Moussaka, Graviera Saganaki (fried cheese) and a Seafood Platter filled with mollusks, fresh squid, fish and shrimp. I love the Graviera Saganaki with a drizzle of lemon. Fried graviera cheese has never been this tasty!
The seafood at Mykonos is exceedingly well done. There was a nice springy texture for the octopi and the squid, the fish flaked at the touch and there was no disguising the taste of the sea. The moussaka is also pure fat, with bechamel, eggplant and beef. I must say, it is one of the best I’ve tasted in SIN for sure!
For dessert, Mykonos does an amazing Baklava, a chocolate filled filo pastry with a side of milk ice cream. The bougatsa, a semolina filo pastry with dusted sugar wasn’t too bad either, but I love the Tahini cream with olive oil pistachio sponge cake best. Simple and satisfying. The Pagoto Giaoyrti- a homemade Greek yoghurt ice cream with acacia honey and walnuts- and Glyka koutaliou – Greek yoghurt with fruit is a slightly lighter yet creamy end to the meal as well.
I absolutely loved this place and I will be back.
