Last October 27, 2011 Mario's Restaurant hosted a bloggers' night to celebrate their 40th anniversary. Lucky for me, I had the chance to be part of it! I haven't dined at Mario's in decades and I was pretty curious as to how I'd find the food now that I'm a lot older. Anyhow, we started off with Gambas con Chorizo (pictured above) for appetizer. It's a delicious savory and garlicky dish that I couldn't quite get enough of.
Then we were treated to Oysters Rockefeller (pictured above). The cheesy oysters that were also garnished with what seemed like pesto kept on coming but I only had a couple since we were slated to have a lot more food.
There was a huge skillet of Paella Valenciana (pictured above) too. Yummy!
Then we had Mario's Caesar Salad. It prepared before our eyes. The dressing was made of fresh eggs, olive oil, and some other ingredients that I couldn't identify. It's also topped with croutons and crunchy bacon bits.
For my main dish, I picked Corned Beef and Cabbage. It's not the usual corned beef you find inside cans in the supermarket. It was two whole pieces of incredibly tender and tasty meat served with equally savory cabbage, potatoes, and carrots on the side.
It came with a bowl of soup that tasted like the corned beef too. :)
For dessert, I opted for Mango Jubilee. Like Mario's Caesar Salad, it was prepared in front of us. It was a nice combination of warm sweet mangoes and cold ice cream.
