New Outback Steakhouse Outlet at Orchard Gateway

Untitled1

Prior to this meal, I had only been to Outback Steakhouse once, at the Millenia Walk outlet. It was years ago and I remembered only having steak and sides there. Recently, Outback Steakhouse has opened a new outlet at Orchard Gateway, a new addition to the stretch of malls along Orchard Road. This outlet offers a varied menu, which broadens their repertoire to encompass more than just steaks.

We started our meal with Typhoon Bloom ($14.90). Hand-cut fresh onion rings, served with the signature Bloom sauce. This is a very yummy appetiser. I could not get enough of this! It is a huge cyclone like structure and the spices in the batter make it so addictive!

To accompany our huge onion rings, we had the Strawberry Basil Lemonade ($13.90). Absolut Citron vodka, fresh basil, strawberries, fresh lemonade and Sprite.

The Spinach Artichoke Dip ($13.90) is new on the menu. The dip is a mix of spinach, artichoke, Monterey Jack cheese and Parmesan cheese. It comes with fresh corn tortilla chips.

Outback Steakhouse offers nine different sides: corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, baked potato, Aussie fries, rice pilaf, sweet potato fries and baked sweet potato (as shown above). I really enjoyed the pairing of baked sweet potato with cinnamon sugar and honey butter. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! I can imagine this not only as a side, but also as a dessert.

Watermelon Margarita ($14.90). Fresh watermelon, Jose Cuervo Silver Tequila, citrus juices and served in a sugar-rimmed glass. The table got very excited at the sight of this whole tray of drinks!

Next, we had the Tilpia with Pure Lump Crab Meat ($27.90), served with homemade lemon butter Chablis sauce. The lump of crab meat as you can see is really a huge scoop of it!

Alice Springs Chicken ($25.90). Flame-grilled chicken breast, sauteed mushrooms, crispy bacon, Monterey Jack cheese, Parmesan cheese and honey mustard sauce. This originally comes with Aussie fries, but we had sweet potato fries with it instead and they stole the show! I wish more places would offer sweet potato fries on top of the normal ones.

New York Strip ($36.90), comes with a choice of two sides. This is a 10 ounce strip steak, seasoned with a secret blend of 17 spices. I also found out that all their steaks are dry-aged for a minimum of 21 days. Honestly, not my type of cut as I tend to go for either the ribeye, tenderloin or fillet. However, I have to say that it was tasty and full-flavoured.

Mashed potatoes, which was a favourite, and I can see why. The true flavour of the potato is not overwhelmed by cream or milk.

Third cocktail of the evening… Apple Mojito ($12.90). Barcadi Silver rum, diced red apples, limes and mint. Out of the three, this has to be my favourite. It is cooling and rather invigorating.

Baby Back Ribs (half $19.90, full $32.90), served with Aussie fries, which are fries with the skin on. This dish is smoked and flame-grilled and served with BBQ sauce.

Chocolate Thunder from Down Under ($14.90). With a name like this, how could we not try it? A tower made of pecan brownie, vanilla ice-cream, a scoop of whipped cream, chocolate shavings and drizzled with warm chocolate sauce.

Carrot Cake ($9.90). Tall slice of cake with pecans, coconut and vanilla cream cheese icing. Delightfully moist!

Overall, I must say I am quite impressed by the food there! I often associate Outback with only steaks, but this meal has proven me wrong. I will recommend this place for meet-ups as the portions are huge and good for sharing. Citibank cardholders can get to enjoy a 20% discount!
