It’s a week before Christmas. Have you made any Christmas dinner plans yet? If not, may I introduce you to Maria’s Cafe, a restaurant which serves one of the best steak in town. They are popular for it’s quality premium beef steaks, namely, the Japanese Kobe, Australian Wagyu and Australian Black Angus.
If you have never tried Kobe before, you should at least try it once. I know, the price for Kobe doesn’t quite fit most of our budgets. But if you are feeling posh or just simply need to satisfy your desire to try the best steak in the world (Kobe), do try Maria’s Cafe. Alternatively, there are many other cheaper options. We tried Maria’s Cafe Australian Black Angus recently.
We ordered our Australian Black Angus medium rare with a tag price of Rm42/100gm. The difference between a Kobe with Black Angus is the marbling. Kobe has more ‘fats’ as compared to Black Angus. Therefore, Black Augus is slightly more chewy.
If you do not like beef, pastas are available here too. To be very honest, we prefer not to order pastas at all as we had had bad experiences with pastas. Most restaurants tend to give more noodles and skimp on the ingredients. However after persuaded by the lady boss herself, we ordered the Seafood Pasta. Maria’s Cafe Seafood Pastas are fully loaded with fresh seafood ingredients. That was my first impression. Fresh prawns, mussels and pieces of salmon. What a surprise. Priced at Rm24, Maria’s Seafood Pasta is just perfect. Very yummy.
Spicy New Zealand Mussels was our appetizer for the night. It was sweet and spicy at the same time. A plate of Spicy New Zealand Mussels is priced at RM16, comes with 6 fresh mussels paired up with some garlic bread.
Chicken Parmiagiani @ RM22.00 looks quite similar to pizza. But oh boy, it tastes just so different. Minus off the bread, add it with chicken and top it up with homemade salsa sauce and melted cheese. And there you have it, you’ve got yourself a Chicken Parmiagiani. It was tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. I enjoyed it very much.
As closing to our near perfect dinner, we ordered Maria’s Tiramisu. Topped with crushed top-graded walnut, this tiramisu one of the popular item here. We were lucky to have reserved it earlier, as their tiramisu runs out real quick.
