We've gone to the Outback Steakhouse many times since 2008(?) I think...but I realised I've never blogged about it! Also, the dim lighting there isn't very good, so I rarely take pictures...this is the first time I think!
For starters, we ordered the world famous Bloomin' Onion ($9.95, unchanged through the many years) The deep-fried goodness of onion and the unique, special sauce is soo good! I could eat 3 onions by myself! But sometimes, they kind of undercook it and the onion becomes very spicy - made me cry once... the waitress was so scared, as I was so emotional over a
damn onion. But generally, they make it very nicely! But a slight heads-up, the flavour is very strong, and can overpower some people's taste buds...also, onion is not that accepted by some.
Cheese chips ($13.95) also seems very popular as I see mountains of fries covered in cheese, bacon and ranch being delivered to the various tables. But I don't think I can stomach that as a starter and a steak afterwards, so we skipped on that..maybe next time!
Dad really like their lamb the first time he had it, so he's religiously ordered it every time we go to the steakhouse. The Full Lamb Rack ($35.95) is a full 450g and usually has 7-8 'sticks' of lamb. Along with the rack, you can choose from a range of sides (Dad chose the jacket potato; the best! He stole my choice....*cries*) The jacket potato is so creamy, loaded with sour cream, bacon and shallots! But be careful, you will be stuffed to the max.
Now onto desserts! As stuffed as I was with the mains, I can never skip out on dessert!
The Chocolate Thunder ($11.95) is the bomb! Warm chocolate brownie, a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream and a large dollop of whipped cream, chocolate shavings and a pool of warm chocolate sauce! Disclaimer: This is made to be shared! No matter how fat it will make me, I will continue to eat!!
Overall, this meal was very very satisfying at a very reasonable price! However, getting a table may be a little troublesome....You can only book if you have a table for 8 or more...If you have less than 8, they have a priority seating list...so I think it's better just to turn up a tad early!
