A Family Favorite - Gloria Maris Restaurant

Growing up in the '80s family milestones were usually celebrated in a Chinese restaurant.  Our favorites were South Villa in Greenhills and Gloria Maris in the CCP Complex.  Our clan celebrated anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, and even a wedding in these two restaurants.

Yesterday, after a long absence, we visited Gloria Maris at the Alabang Town Center.  We ordered the same dishes that my Tito Ed used to recommend to us - hot prawn and chicken salad, fried rice, steamed suahe, fish lip soup with black vinegar of course.  In between bites, we could not help but recall the many meals we had with had Tito Ed,  his favorite dishes, and the happy moments shared during those family occasions.

At the end of our meal I got a wonderful treat, I bumped into a very good friend who I have not seen for many years.  She was also at Gloria Maris with her clan - parents, brother, pamangkins, husband and two adorable little daughters.  I am sure they too were making happy family eating memories.

Weng it was great seeing you, hope to bump into you again soon :-)
