It's hard to miss the huge, white imposing building of Gloria Maris (Shark's Fin Restaurant) in Greenhills Shopping Center. Perfectly curved, it enjoin shoppers for a sumptuous meal.
There are two kinds of menu (or should I say dining area) they offer and serve at Gloria Maris: dim sum and hot pot (high-end). Since it's a hot pot night for us, a table of four shares an electric stove for the cooking.
Though we opted for hot pot, they allow for cross-over between dimsum. Perfect while waiting for the soup to boil. Speaking of soup, that's the first task in hot pot. Followed by the sauce. Good thing there were ready sauces I need not mix sate myself.
If unsure which soup to choose or what to mix, the staff are always willing to help. In fact, they're very accommodating.
Assorted Combination for 4 Persons- Php 1,925 was what we opted for in the shabu-shabu part with balls of meat, sliced meats, a few sticks of prawns, sliced squid, crabsticks and even sea cucumber which was rubbery but good. The veggie pot has brocolli, Chinese pechay, cabbages, corn, tofu, sotanghon even mushrooms and beancurd skin.
For the dimsum, had Baked Pork Buns at Php 175. Also had Hakaw at Php 175. Sharksfin Siomai at Php 170. And Peking Duck 1/4- ~Php 1,500. The Peking duck was sweet and the baked pork buns were heavenly :)
Again for hot pot, remember that the thin slices of meat should just be cooked minimally to bring out the best in it. And oh, don't try to put everything inside.
