AU2010 - Outback Steakhouse

Instead of having a Chinese-styled round-table family dinner, this weekend, we opted for a Western-styled rectangular table family dinner at Outback Steakhouse.



Having called several hours before arriving at Outback, it still took us a 30 minutes wait at the bar before being seated at the table, due to the several birthday parties booked in for the night. While waiting, we decided to indulge in Outback’s specialty drinks such as The Wallaby Darned (Down Under frozen wonder with peaches, DeKuyper Peach Schnapps, Sparkling Wine, Smirnoff Vodka and secret mixers) …



… Barrier Punch (made with Malibu coconut rum, Midori Liquor, freshly squeezed orange juice and Cranberry Juice) …



… Bondi Ice Berg (a tropical blend of Vodka, Peach Schnapps, freshly squeezed orange juice, pineapple juice, sour mix and topped off with sprite) …



… Fair Dinkum Daiquiri (Succulent Strawberry blended with secret mixes to give an awesome daiquiri made with Bacardi light rum) …



and Pineapple Martini (a refreshing mixture of Stoli Vodka, Malibu Coconut Rum and pineapple juice).



The only disappointing thing about the drinks was that the colours did not turned out as colourful as shown in the menu.

Anyway, as soon as the buzzer rang, we were lead to our table and the first dish that we were served, which is also a must try, was Outback’s Bloomin Onion. Due to the shrinking size of onions, we were served two plates to compensate for the size.



Next, we were served the Walkabout Soup, which happens to be Pumpkin Soup for that day, as well as a loaf of Outback’s yummy Bushmans Garlic Loaf (we did observed that most people did not really finish their bread. Any idea why?).



When all of us started to feel full, we were then attacked by the mains. First up was the Grilled Chicken on the Barbie …



… followed by Baby Back Pork Ribs …



and Jackeroo Chops.



Obviously, being in a steakhouse, I suppose its a must for us to at least have some beef. So, we also ordered their Slow Roasted Prime Rib …



… and Outback Special.



After all that food, guess what? There’s still room for dessert, and so, here comes the highlight of the dinner, which was of course the Chocolate Thunder, Outback’s most celebrated dessert.



Coupled with a tiny little candle, this dessert then became Shin’s birthday cake for the night, which all of us finished in less than 5 minutes.


Happy Birthday, Shin!!!
