Outback Steakhouse, Millenia Walk

I got a free $20 Outback voucher when I purchased my digicam at the IT Fair last March. Now, the voucher was actually supposed to be good for a month only (eventhough there was no stamped or signed date on the back of it). It was obviously more than a month from March but luckily they didn't really mind. It didn't say anyway where we got the voucher from (and they didn't ask).

Annyyywwaayy, we walked to Millenia Square from the gym in Bugis so as not to feel guilty after we ate, haha. I mean, c'mon, when I hear Outback the first things that come to mind are meat, cholesterol, carbs and calories.

It's been at least a year since the last time we ate out Outback. We normally don't eat in expensive fancy restos (anything above $20 per meal is fancy to me) and I actually forgot they serve free bread with their own whipped butter cream, so this was a welcome treat.

I wanted to have the onion rings for starters but we decided to get the chicken wings anyway. A full order at S$15.90 comes with around 8 pieces of wings plus carrot sticks that were really badly sliced (look at the irregularly sized pieces). Terrible presentation. Good thing the wings tasted good. Very flavourful without the need for their "homemade" sauce (which was actually like sour cream but a bit more runny).

I had the "Swiss Mushroom Burger" - S$18.90. The fries were really huge and actually very good, (despite knowing the fact that fries are one of the worst foods you can eat in the world, oh well). The burger was just Ok. I took out the top bun to at least 'try' to lessen the carb intake.

Zach had "Chicken on the Barbie" - S$20.90. Someone has to teach them food styling and presentation. Look at how dirty the the plate is. Plus, the veggies were overcooked. In fact, by looking at the picture you can see how limp that slice of cucumber is. The chicken was ok, nothing special.

Dinner came up to S$53.55 (including taxes & service charge, less the $20 voucher). All in all, it was just ok. My rating may not be fair because we didn't really order steak given that they are a steakhouse, but that doesn't mean they can neglect the other food items on their menu. Service, on the other hand, was impressive. The manager made sure to always refill our drinks and asked us how our food was.

Here is my rating for Outback:
Ambiance - 4.0
Service - 5.0
Food - 2.5
Presentation - 2.5
Price - 3.5
