Experience the culture and flavours of Mykonos at Toronto’s newest Greek restaurant on King Street, Myth.
Some may recognize the building for what it once was, Citizen at 522 King Street West. The location has now transformed into a stunning Greek oasis.
This Myth is definitely worth believing.
“The vision behind Myth is to redefine the synchronicity of food, culture, ambience, and celebration, which is in true Greek fashion,” said Matty Uniq, Co-Owner of Myth.
The menu was developed by Myth’s Executive Chef duo Sergio Abrunho and Tulio Lessa featuring traditional Aegean flavours.
If you’re craving a taste of Greece, this is the place to satisfy your palate.

For drinks, first up is The Fortune Teller.
It’s citrusy and light. You’ll definitely foresee a couple of Fortune Tellers in your future.
Presentation is everything, and this next drink is serving. For its small stature, the Illios packs a punch.
To start, the perfect sharing platter is the Meze Dips. From left to right, the dish comes with a red beet Hummus sprinkled with feta cheese and pomegranate seeds, Tirokafteri, a Greek spicy feta with roasted red peppers, and Melitzanosalata, a smoked eggplant dip with pine nuts.
If you’re out for a drink and need something to pair, this is a top choice.
Next up is the Flaming Saganaki, a Kefalograviera Cheese with grilled lemon and oregano. You can see the cheese melt right before your eyes.
For seafood lovers, the Lavraki Crudo is a delicious combination between sweet and salty yet not overpowering.
The dish may look small portion-wise, but it is sure to fill you up and keep you satisfied until the main course.
With sliced cucumbers, watermelon radish, cilantro and grapes, it’s an unexpecting match. But it’s true what they say: opposites attract.
Another seafood dish is the Xtapodi Sti Skara, a grilled Octopus with fava, yellow split peas, and extra virgin olive oil.
It’s small yet mighty in flavour. If you’ve never tried Octopus, be adventurous and try something new.
The final choice is the Horiatiki Salata, an inviting mixture of fresh tomatoes, cucumber, bell peppers, red onion, kalamata olives, oregano, and a block of feta cheese.
The feta is almost airy with a savoury salty taste. The portion is large enough to share amongst your friends.
Now for dinner, the Paidakia, grass-fed Australian Lamb Chops with Tzatziki is something you’ll be dreaming about.
Tender is an understatement. The dish is cooked to perfection.
The hint of citrus and Tzatziki is a match made in heaven.
