The Best Dim Sum only @ Gloria Maris



Our family absolutely loves Chinese food and waking up this lazy Sunday morning and having dim sum in Gloria Maris is always the best way to start the day for us. As you can see in the picture above, a lot of people had the same thing in mind. In fact, we even had to wait for our table and considering that it was only 10am, it just goes to show how popular Gloria Maris is. This restaurant is always packed, especially during weekends, and I strongly urge you to go early if you decide to dine here whether it be the fine dining area, the dim sum area, or the shabu-shabu area. Because if you do not go early, expect to wait for around an hour or so for your table. You can, however, reserve for your table if you decide to eat in the fine dining area. If it's the shabu-shabu area or the dim sum section, you can go early and put your name in the list.

I absolutely love dim sum. In fact, I crave for it and eat dim sum at least every 2 weeks. So it should come to no surprise that I have tried almost all the restaurants here in Manila that serve dim sum and Gloria Maris (take note, it MUST be the main branch in Greenhills), is, by far, the ABSOLUTE BEST. So good, in fact, that it actually comes close to the dim sum in Hong Kong. Their dim sum is always made of fresh ingredients and when you bite into the dim sum, you can see whole pieces of prawn and pork, depending on what you order. Their branches in Alabang and Greenbelt and even Shang mall don't serve the same kind of quality. As for the other restaurants such as Maxims, Ling Nam, David's Tea House, Hap Chan, Won Ton, Zong, and the like, do not even come close. Other restaurants worth mentioning are Tin Hau in Mandarin and Choi (located in Annapolis).

This morning, we ordered the following:



The family favorite - Hakaw PHP125.00 (The serving size comes with 4 pcs but my daughter devoured one of the pieces before I could take a pic)



Fried Radish Cake PHP100.00 (comes with 3 pcs)



Shrimp Wanton Noodle Soup - PHP150.000



Nori Pork Siomai - PHP100.00



Taro Puff - PHP108.00 (another of my favorites)



Rice Roll with Shrimp - PHP150.00 This dish always reminds me of Hong Kong and only a number of Chinese restaurants offer rice roll in their menu.



Shark's Fin Siomai - PHP120.00



Chicken Feet - PHP108.00 I, personally, do not eat this dish. I just can't fathom the idea of eating it but for those who are more adventurous with food, my husband claims that it's really good.

So if you want to indulge yourself and eat dim sum, try the main branch of Gloria Maris in Greenhills Shopping Center, Ortigas Ave, San Juan.
