LA Weekly's Description

A smallish Colombian restaurant, La Maria is a cheerful place, all earth-tone tiles and travel posters. The locals stop in for batidos, Colombian milk shakes made with guanabana, passion fruit or the purple Andean berry called mora; for avocado omelets in the mornings, and for bowls of mondongo, a nourishing tripe soup, on the mornings after. What you probably come to a Colombian restaurant for is grilled steak, and La Maria has it in various guises - the relatively simple carne asada served with fried bananas and arepas; the bistek a caballo, served underneath a runny fried egg; or the classic bandeja, Colombia's national combination plate. The beer is cold, the constant salsa music hot. When you look out of the picture window, over the auto-body shops and out to the low, bare foothills of the Verdugos, it can seem as if you are in another place altogether, if not in MedellĂ­n then at least in Tucson. Recommended dishes: arepa con queso, picada, flan. Limited lot parking. See full review.

    Get a guanabana smoothie made with milk. That's how real Colombians roll.

    Soooooo good!

  • Katy T. on 01/11/14

    The arepes are the bomb. Especially with their killer salsa dribbled on.

    Hidden gem minutes away from Burbank airport. If you are veggie, get the sweet corn tamales!
