The largest steakhouse chain in the world has unveiled its second outlet for Singapore at the newly-launched orchardgateway at the heart of the city’s shopping and dining belt. Named after the Australian Outback, this casual diner embodies the spirit of Down Under with flavourful food and friendly, attentive service at wallet-pleasing prices. Outback Steakhouse also has another flagship store at Millenia Walk where the Australian-inspired concept was first introduced in 2000.

Perched on the mall’s fourth floor, the spiffy 150-seater is decked in a warm palette with contemporary wood furnishing, and 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!

Alice Springs Chicken S$25.90served with Aussie fries. 
Its flame-grilled chicken breast topped with sautéed mushrooms, crispy bacon, Monterey Jack cheese, Parmesan cheese, honey mustard sauce. Had taken this close up shot so that you can see the ''layers''. 

Initially we were skeptical about this dish, chicken breast sounds like we will have a hard time cutting and munching the meat but we were wrong. We were impressed that chicken breast can be so moist & tender. I am not a cheese person, but the cheese compliments the chicken breast well. My favourite of the night.

Outback steaks are truly special. Before each juicy, delicious steak is delivered to you, it is hand-selected, aged just right, inspected and trimmed. Then it is expertly seasoned and seared over a red hot grill to seal in its bold flavors. All steaks cooked to order.

All steaks at Outback Steakhouse are dry-aged for a minimum of 21 days and it comes with 2 sides.

New York Strip S$36.90 is a 10oz thick-cut Strip steak, seared with their secret blend of 17 spices. That same 17 spices you see at the beginning of this post.

For even more flavour (in my opinion, it is flavourful enough for me), you may add these to your entree:

Peppercorn Sauce S$1.90

Sauteed Shrooms S$2.90
Grilled Onions S$3.90
Grill Shrimp S$4.90

Baby Back Ribs - half S$19.90    full S$32.90 (picture above is full portion) served with fries.

These fall-off -bone pork ribs are exactly the way ribs should be. Succulent & saucy (I love the sauce, I would love to lick clean the bones, if not for my image in front of many people).

Each rack is smoked and flame-grilled to perfection, brushed in tangy BBQ Sauce and served with Aussie fries, however I personally feel that it might be too dry, you may request for a change in the sides.

Grilled Pork Chops S$24.90 served with Aussie fries.
2 centre cut, seasoned pork chops with orange marmalade by the side.

You got to try the orange marmalade, all of us love it. It has a hinge of spiciness which they had explained to us that it contains mustard.

Chocolate Thunder from Down Under S$14.90 already sounds sinful enough.
An extra generous pecan brownie topped with rich vanilla ice-cream, drizzled with warm chocolate sauce and topped with whipped cream & chocolate shavings.

Its thundery chocolaty,if there is such a description.

Carrot Cake S$9.90

I have to say this is so far the best carrot cake I had in terms of the freshness and softness of the cake. It is made up of deliciously moist layers of carrot cake with coconut & pecans, topped with a sweet vanilla cream cheese icing. While Chenyze is using her fork to slice this piece of carrot cake, I can already tell how soft and moist it is. I was right. My dining companion love this piece of cake too!

A cup of Dargjeeling to wash down all the sinful food we had for the night.
