We are moving from Dubai Marina in August, so I am trying to visit all my favorite restaurants in the Marina, JLT and JBR, while I still have them within walking distance.
Mythos has been my favorite Greek ever since they opened, and while it’s been some time since my last visit, it did not take long to remember, why I love that place so much. Mythos makes tzatziki with lots of dill, which I’m not always a fan of, but which works well for their version. The grilled pita bread is not included with the tzatziki, but something you pay extra for. I think I’ve been complaining about that on several occasions on this blog, but that’s a fact I have learned to live with:) Besides, I guess from a business perspective, it wouldn’t be such a good idea either, not charging for pita, and risking having people coming in just for tzatziki (and free pita bread).
For what might be our last meal at Mythos for a very long time, I had two of he dishes I always order; chicken souvlaki and grilled octopus. Rather simple dishes, but I’m telling you, anything from the grill at Mythos just blows your mind. I had a little too much tzatziki and Greek salad while waiting for our mains, so I had to get most of the chicken souvlaki to go, as I was already full, when it arrived at my table. Had it for lunch the following day, and it was still delicious.
