Outback Steakhouse @ Millenia Walk

Outback Steakhouse is an Australian Steakhouse conceptualise by an American company. Truth to be told, the people behind it done a great job, to make it so originally Aussie I got fooled all these years.

Recently, Outback Steakhouse ('Outback') introduced The Great Aussie Eats menu, inspired by the popular combination in Australia. So we are here to give it a try.

The Bar

Starter was Tomato and Mozzarella Bruschetta ($14.90). The crispy baguette, topped with mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, balsamic vinegar and green. Simple, refreshing and delicious. Don't be fooled by the block cut of the mozzarella that looks like parmesan, it was soft and easy on the palate. Combined with sweet acidity from the balsamic vinegar and cherry tomato, it will really kick start your appetite.

Following the traditional dining customs, we started the dinner with Charcuterie Platter, Prosciutto Di Parma ($16). Thinly sliced parma ham, served with parmesan cheese and breadstick. The fig and fruit jelly on the side gave a contrasting flavour to the salty and complex texture of the parma ham.
