Outback Steakhouse has unveiled its second outlet in Singapore at the newly-launched orchard gateway. Perched on the mall’s fourth floor, the spiffy 150-seater proffers diners a sumptuous perspective of the bustling Orchard Road and the lively Emerald Hill. The restaurant’s decorative adornments reflect the “Quality, Freshness, Flavour” mantra with shelves of spice jars that flank the entrance.
The bar takes pride of place with a 7-seater counter from which patrons enjoy full view of the bar manager’s dexterous cocktail preparation using fresh fruits. An overhead ceiling-to-wall backdrop fashioned from zinc showcases an Aboriginal art-inspired wave-like design – a fitting backdrop for the restaurant’s watering hole.
Outback Steakhouse now puts forth a varied menu which will cater to all appetites and preferences with a repertoire that encompasses appetizers, salads, steaks, burgers seafood, ribs, roasted chicken, and dessert.
Pique the appetite with tempting appetisers such as Spinach Artichoke Dip ($13.90, NEW) with freshly fried corn tortilla chips for an indulging creamy melange of spinach and artichokes in Monterey Jack and Parmesan cheeses; moreish Typhoon Bloom ($14.90) hand-cut onion rings stacked into a behemoth cyclone-like structure; succulent morsels of Crispy Fried Mushrooms ($13.90); and Crab Cakes ($15.90) that are plump with 100% lump crab meat. The worldwide bestsellers – Kookaburra Wings ($9.90/half, $14.90/full) paired with Blue Cheese dressing, and golden-hued Crispy Calamari ($13.90) are also now available together as an Appetizer Duo ($16.90) platter.
Salads are a hearty affair at Outback Steakhouse, laden with fresh greens and generous lashings of the respective ingredients. Have your pick, from the Aussie Chicken Salad ($19.90) brimming with diced hard-boiled eggs, coarsely-chopped tomatoes, crispy bacon crumbs, Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses, and a choice of grilled or crispy chunks; to the Caesar Salad ($19.90 with flame-grilled chicken, $19.90 with grilled shrimp, and $22.90 with sliced sirloin) that is deftly tossed with the house-made Caesar dressing.
The steak selection boasts Australian and USDA cuts marinated with Outback’s secret 17-spices seasoning blend and expertly seared over a red-hot grill to seal in the bold flavours. The slow-roasted Seasoned and Seared Prime Rib ($37.90/10oz, $39.90/12oz) is hand-carved upon order and served with the classic au jus.
