Outback's Kitchen - This is where the magic happened
Outback Steakhouse was so damn generous to us. They let us order main course. So then, we ordered what become signature steak from Outback.

New York Strip - IDR 249.900
A thick cut New York strip steak seared with Outback's secret 17  seasoning blend. I found it too overcooked. So it makes the meat a bit chewy. But i still can taste it seasoning well. Served with fresh veggies, fries, mustard and ketchup.

Alice Springs Chicken - IDR 125.900
Chicken breast flame-grilled and topped with sauteed mushroom, crisp strips of beef bacon, Melted Monterey Jack and cheddar finished with honey mustard sauce. Served with Aussie fries. The chicken is so tender.

The very thick 8oz meat steak cut. It so juicy. Served with fresh veggies and fries and paired with blackpepper sauce and ketchup.

BBQ Beef Ribs - IDR 249.900
BBQ Beef Ribs have USDA "Choice" Certified Angus Beef. These-fall-off-the-bone beef ribs are exactly the way beef ribs  should be! The succulent and saucy ribs are smoked, grilled to perfection and brushed in a tangy barbeque sauce. Served with a very generous of Aussie fries. At first I looked this Ribs, my ind straight to the Flinstone Klan heheh... This ribs is so HUGE! Forget fork and knife. Just get dirty with your hands. The sauce is totally finger lickin'

Toowoomba Topped Fillet - IDR 329.900
I was so interested to ordered Toowoomba just because it wrote in menu book that Toowoomba is #1 Rated ZAGAT Best Steak for 2009 - 2011. So, that make me more curious. Toowoomba is a sauteed shrimp and button mushrooms tossed in a tomato cream sauce and served over a seasoned and seared fillet. The meat is so juicy and tender. Shrimp also taste fresh and not smell fishy. It all taste melted in your mouth  Served with fresh veggies and a very great mashed potato that seasoned well.


Left : Banana Nut Cake – IDR 55.900
Right : Chocolate Thunder from Down Under – IDR 69.900
Looks like Outback has specialty in creating big meal. Because the dessert also a very serious deal.

BANANA NUT CAKE 
A delicious combination of banana soft and fluffy cake, toffee, whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, buts and cinnamon. The sweetness is not too overpowering.

CHOCOLATE THUNDER FROM DOWN UNDER 
Alert for chocolate lover. You have to order this when you come to Outback.  It's a fresh-baked pecan brownie is crowned with rich vanilla ice cream, drizzled with classic warm chocolate sauce and finished with chocolate shavings and whipped cream. The warmness of chocolate sauce meets cold from the ice cream, it so melted in your mouth.

Overall, Outback is definitely a great restaurant to visit. The price is suitable with what you have. Big portion with a big taste. The service also quick and friendly. Thanks a billion to Mrs Seli from Outback and Ms. Gricia Effendi for invitation. We're having so much fun
