Review: Maredo's Steakhouse

maredo's

We're going for some steaks today over at Maredo's Steakhouse, an Argentinean steakhouse, located in Crown Regency Hotel. Went there for lunch with my colleagues recently after hearing that they serves reasonabily priced set lunches.

Interior on the inner portion of the restaurant is a bit dim with loads of photos, paintings and statues that exude warmth to the large dining area.

We checked out the set lunch menu. There were 2 sets, Executive Set Lunch and House Set Lunch. Executive Set Lunch at RM45++ (5% Government Tax and 10% Service Charge) has 4 courses of buffet salad from the salad bar, a soup, main course of either beef steak or fish, dessert of the day and ends with coffee or tea. The House Set Lunch which costed RM24++; consists of buffet salad, 4 choices of main course (beef stew, baked fish fillet, spaghetti and rump steak) to pick from and iced lemon tea. Quite a steal I would say.

Since all of us opted for set lunches, we got to pick our salad from this salad bar.

The choices are pretty good and the selections are fresh. From this close-up, let me recall what were the choices, french beans, corns, tomatoes in olive oil, lettuces, cucumber, potato salad, fruits etc etc...

Since there were quite a number of us, we got a mixture of orders. So I'm going to quickly run thru the main courses. The following were the main courses from the House Set Lunch. This is the Grilled Rump Steak with Tomato Chimichurri, Manchego Cheese and Baked Potato. My colleague, Ed gave a thumb up for the presentation haha...

I had the rump steak too, done medium, which turned out good. The meat was tender... just look at the pinkish centre! Literally melt in your mouth. The Tomato Chimichurri made of tomatoes, olive oil, vinegar/lemon juice, garlic and herbs; is a popular sauce used in Argentina lent a refreshing taste to the steak rather than the usual brown or black pepper sauce.

SL's Spaghetti With Chicken and Asparagus. I didn't taste this but the smell that wafted over was great!

Y's Oven Baked Fish Fillet With Lemon Capers Sauce, Mashed Potatoes and Broccolli. Y said the mash was great but after a few bites and little digging, she noted that the fish was not thoroughly cooked. It was sent back to the kitchen for further cooking. The fish returned looking more tanned and of course cooked.

BamBam and PhatMan ordered the Executive Set that came with a tomato based soup, nothing special there they told us.

Both of them asked for the Grilled Rib-eye With Black Pepper Gravy, Jacket Potato and Vegetables of the day. Looked good to us. In this pic, the potato was missing and it came later.

Their dessert of the day... a mango mousse I think or was it a pudding. Whatever... PhatMan said it was delicious.

Some of today's pictures were taken with BamBam's new digicam, a Sony DSC-T10. Since it was his first day using the camera, he was still trying to familiarise with the functions and features. I would say it's a pretty nifty little thing.

chocolalat! said...

looking at the steak pictures at sahur time is def not a good idea for me :P

cookies_cream said...

Yeah wor, just like what pablopabla said, the main course looked quite tiny. But the layout of the presentation was nice! At first I thought this restaurant was the one near the clubs in Jalan P. Ramlee.

Maredo's steaks are yummy.
:)
I remember I tried a Chocolate dessert there and that was pretty good too.

Have you ever tried La Suisse though? - the steaks there are good too and they have great desserts.

babe_kl said...

chocolalat, lucky its sahur and not in the late afternoon hehe

cookies_cream, Maredo's is located along there amongst the club. it's next to coffee bean. formerly was deutches haus which is owned by the same owner of maredo's

J, we were too full to eat any dessert. la suisse, ok will check that place next time. i'm not really a steak person but hubby is haha

tekko said...

used to near my office, but I've been away and didn't try it since it changed from Deutsches Haus. Will try it when I move back to that area... soon. :)

fooDcrazEE said...

any idea if the beef is grass fed or grain fed ? is it really imported from Argentine ?

boo_licious said...

yum! The Mt Kiara one is having this Sunday promo, all you can eat for a price so if you love steaks, guess you can try it out. Yeah, you shld try La Suisse, that place is still the best.

babe_kl said...

tekko, its the same management as deutches haus.

mike, according to their website, they claimed their steaks are imported from Argentina and they are all grass fed.

yikes, all you can eat! dun think i can take in so much in one go. thanks anyway boo_licious

Mom to Nic & Belle said...

When I see the title Maredo's and it reminds me of Berlin. I was in Berlin last week and have dinner there. I had the steak promo set with 220 gram steak + a potato with sour cream + salad cost Euro$12.90.

bam said...

babe_kl said...

Maredo's Argentinian Steakhouse is NOT Argentinian. Neither the owner, nor the quality of meat. It is only a commercial name.
I am from Argentina, and my experience there was poor. Their meat was stringy, a poor cut, that I had to leave behind a third of it. Attention is so-so. Overall the place is poor value.
