Dive into a menu full of the treasures of the sea
Mythos by Divani would not live up to its mythical name without creating flavours that tantalise even the most demanding of palates. With a menu honouring the treasures of the sea, the chef has succeeded in combining creativity and modern gastronomic trends with fresh, top quality Greek produce, creating inspired dishes that highlight the pure essence of each ingredient.
For travel aficionados, the Dodecanese bouillabaisse offers an unexpected journey of maritime flavours, whilst those who want to start their meal with zest should opt for the unforgettable taste of the carpaccio of sea bass, marinated in citrus juice, chilli and coriander. Asian influences are displayed already in the appetisers, with steamed seafood dumplings, soy sauce and ginger all used to great culinary effect. Salads are a riot of colour such as the one with shrimp, quinoa, mango, strawberries, chilli, avocado and peppers, all designed to celebrate the flavours of fresh, exciting food. From the selection of pasta and risotto dishes comes a plate of nutty barley with juicy shrimp, the latter cooked in a rich, flavoursome fish broth, whilst the sautéed croaker fish with cauliflower cream sings with the added piquancy of samphire and basil oil. Enjoy the fish of the day, presented fresh before your eyes, or choose a different flavour palette altogether with a range of high quality meat dishes including Black Angus burgers with black truffles. Last but not least, finish the evening with something sweet – desserts include a velvety chocolate cake crowned with a sphere of Azelia chocolate mousse and a creamy galaktoboureko (custard filled phyllo party rolls) served with vanilla ice cream and sour cherry syrup.
