Myth on the Danforth (Toronto)

Going to a singles' social at Myth on the 13th and am skeptical about their food...is there anything good to eat there? There's a dinner party before the mingling, and obviously, I'll be trying to restrict the onion-and-garlic intake, but hey, food's my first love!

  1. Actually, their food is quite good. The dips, spanakopita and souvlaki I've had there have been fine. Just stick to the Greek things and you'll be fine.

    1. I find their apps better than their mains.

      1. I must agree with the dips over dinner. But alas, like you said, if it's a single's social, skip any kind of greek salads and some of the dips.

          You have a point there! Their spanakopita is not bad, but then one has to worry about spinach in the teeth.

            I'll bring floss!

            But seriously, I imagine Greek food without garlic is like ice cream without sugar.

            Thanks, everyone, for your help!

              It's actually quite sad, as Myth was, at one time, fabulous. They had a spectacular chicken liver dish that was worth a trek, and their garlic mashed potatoes were amazing. I had one genuine foodie relative declare it one of the best meals he's ever had, anywhere in the world, on price performance. Last time I went, though, the chicken liver dish was gone, the potatoes were bland, the octopus was unforgivable, and, well, I can get a dip platter anywhere. I guess I won't be back, either.

        2. Stay away from Myth unless you like mushy chargrilled octopus ($12), taste-challenged traditional salad ($9), and slightly overcooked though decent chicken souvlaki skewer ($3) with side of delicious tzatziki. Dips (4 on platter) weren't impressive but were fairly enjoyable nonetheless. I ended up spreading tzatziki all over the octopus to make it more palatable. At least the excellent coconut rum-based pink aphrodite martini ($9.50) helped me forget the major food flaws!

          1. MYTH IS AWFUL. I WENT THERE ON A SUNDAY NIGHT - DEAD....WE WERE THE ONLY ONES IN THERE. FOOD WAS NO BETTER OR WORSE THAN FOOD COURT GREEK PLACES. SAVE YOURSELF THE MONEY AND TIME.

              Yeah, it was fairly empty on Friday night as well, so the 30 of us at the singles' party had plenty of room to move!

            2. It was once pretty decent - I agree with Smalph about the great dissappeared chicken liver dish. They also once did wonderful grilled lamb chops. Ten years ago, it was a step above many of the behind-the-times Greek joints on the Danforth. Sadly, their kitchen has a rapidly revolving door. I haven't had good food there in years, and try to avoid it when I can.

              1. My parents live near the Danforth and brought me to Myth for my birthday last year. It was a Thursday night, we spent about two hours in there eating, and we were the only ones there the entire time.

                Needless to say, the service was pretty good - servers were very attentive with us. I found the food average. Being with my family, we pick off of each other's plates - nothing stood out for me. I remember ordering a risotto and not even finishing half of it.
