A couple of days back, I had the opportunity to try out this rather cool restaurant over in Damansara Perdana, Maria's Restaurant and Cafe courtesy of an invitation from Melanie. Upon entering the restaurant, I was told Maria's Cafe is famous for their steaks, which I will showcase later in this post.

Maria's Restaurant and Cafe
C313A, Center Wing, Metropolitan Square
No 2, Jalan PJU 8/1, Bandar Damansara Perdana,
47820 Petaling Jaya
Located on the upper floor of Metropolitan Square, Maria's Cafe exudes a really homely environment and ambience, with soft lighting and classy decor. With a tagline of "The Best of Traditional Western Cuisine", you know you're in for some good food here.
Arriving at Maria's Cafe at around 8pm with Janice, the other bloggers haven't arrived yet which gave me the chance to have a quick chat with the cafe owner's daughter, Mary. To my surprise, the cafe was already filled with customers who mostly consisted of families and couples.

It wasn't long till the rest of the bloggers arrived and we were seated on this rather long table ready to dig into some good food. As usual, I took the opportunity to get to know new friends, and that night, the bloggers that arrived were really pretty and good looking I kid you not. Anyway, do check out some of the dishes that we had that night.
|#1 Spicy N.Z Mussels - RM16|
|#2 N.Z Rock Oysters - RM6 each|
I wasn't really a fan of oysters and mussels, being more of a meat lover but these oysters were really fresh without any hint of fishiness odour, plus they were really huge.
|#3 Ox Tail - RM19.50|
|#4 Pumpkin Soup with Croutons - RM8.50|
|#5 Seafood Minestrone Soup - RM19.50|
|#6 Caesar Salad - RM14|
|#7 Oriental Salad - RM10|
After some healthy soups and delicious Caesar Salads, our next dish was Maria's Cafe's signature steaks. We were served with the Australian Wagyu 7 beef steaks, and also the Australian Chilled Black Angus steak. Naturally the Wagyu 7 steak tasted really good, being tender and very nice texture. At RM95/100gm for a wagyu 7 steak, I was informed the price was pretty reasonable for the quality of the meat. Check them out below.
|#8 Australian Wagyu 7 Beef Steak - RM95/100gm|
|I just had to capture this heavenly piece before it went into my mouth|
|#9 Australian Chilled Black Angus Steak - RM42/100gm|
|#10 Pan-fried Sliced Fresh Tuna - RM24|
|#11 Seafood Spaghetti - RM24|
|#12 Chicken Parmigiana - RM22|
|#13 Black Pepper Chicken Chop - RM18.50|
Desserts were served at the end, sweet tempting cakes which melted in our mouths. The Tiramisu came in a rather huge cup while the Moist Chocolate Cake was warm with some ice-cream served by its side.
|#14 Moist Chocolate Cake - RM9.50, Tiramisu - rm13.50 and Blueberry Cheese Cake - RM8.50|
Needless to say, by the end of the night, we were literally filled to the brim with good, delicious food from Maria's kitchen. All the food served were good, all of which were meticulously prepared fresh from the kitchen.
