Maria's SteakCafe opens flagship restaurant in Suria KLCC

Here's a little success story to get inspired by going into 2021. As Malaysians, we're always proud of accomplishments by homegrown brands — and rightfully so. After all, we should always be supporting and celebrating local talents; from chocolate makers such as Seniman Kakao and Chocolate Concierge to homeware brands such as Rotan Lot and Bendang Artisan.

The culinary industry here in Malaysia has also come a long way and the opening of Maria's SteakCafe's fifth and newest outlet is a vivid example. Established 20 years ago (operating from the family home kitchen in Ipoh), Maria's SteakCafe now has one restaurant in Ipoh and four in the Klang Valley (including Suria KLCC).

Steak with me because there'll be lots of juicy tidbits you'd want to know. For starters, Maria's SteakCafe's latest store will be the brand's flagship restaurant — and will be brand as Maria's Signature. In addition to overlooking the fountains at KLCC Park, you'll also notice that the space is now complemented by a sleek and elegant interior — with plush leather booths, silver grey marble, and dark oak.

While you can still get top quality steaks (wagyu to dry-aged) at Maria's Signature (as well as chicken, lamb, fish, and lobster), the flagship restaurant will also introduce patrons to a brand new cocktail menu specially curated by Amanda Wan. You might know the Malaysian bartender from her stint at Tujo or as first female bartender to represent Malaysia at the DIAGEO Global World Class Bartender of the Year Competition in 2010.

According to Angeline Tan (CEO of Maria's SteakCafe), the brand's presence in Suria KLCC is "a big achievement" and is part of the team's expansion plans for 2021. #NewYearNewEats. The mall itself has seen a plethora of F&B additions recently, including BAPE Cafe, Ren, and Sakana Japanese Dining.

What's at steak, you asked? Well, nothing apart from a well-fed stomach — and we'll also avoid beefing with each other. All jokes aside, add Maria's Signature to your list of places to check out; whether you've been a regular at their other restaurants or if it'll be your virgin visit.
