The latest Expat Wine Dinner was held at the tastefully decorated Maria’s Steak Café in Bangsar. Guests had a choice of three entrées, all paired nicely with selected wines. Maria’s is known for its unpretentious approach to delicious, juicy steaks, featuring prime cuts of quality beef, as well as some decadent in-house desserts and tantalizing appetizers, too.
Canapés in the form of Bread-crumbed Deep-Fried Oysters got things started, complemented by a Paso del Sol Chardonnay. Once everyone took their seats, the appetizer course began: Shiitake Mushrooms with a Fresh Garden Salad and sesame vinaigrette dressing, along with a choice of delicious Oxtail or Mushroom Soup, all accompanied by a lovely 2012 Shiraz. The mains featured a choice of grain-fed Australian Charbroiled Rib-eye topped with savoury butter, NZ Grilled Lamb Cutlets with mint sauce, or a Norwegian Pan-fried Salmon with tangerine sauce. The steak and lamb were paired with a 2011 Terra Mater Cabernet Sauvignon, while the salmon was served with Chardonnay. Many of the guests chose the Rib-eye, and it was the clear highlight of the evening, with diners raving about the juiciness and flavour of the meat.
The meal was topped off by a simple, but heavenly slice of Carrot Walnut Cake, a house specialty. Guests left most pleased and many promised to return to Maria’s Steak Café again!
