We visited Outback Steakhouse Philippines' branch at Eastwood City Libis recently to check out their new menu items tagged as The Great Aussie Eats. The new Outback Steakhouse dishes are said to be "Extremely addictive new favorites from the land down under" hence, I knew from the get go that we gotta check it out pronto.
It was my first time at their Eastwood branch right after relocating from their old nook along C5 and I must say that this new branch is way better because it is accessible.
While their branch in Glorietta Makati still holds a special place in my heart, the one in Eastwood is not a bad option either. not to mention, they offer breakfast meals in this branch.
It was dinner time when I visited with some of my friends and our dinner feast started with Tomato and Mozzarella Bruschetta (Php349) which is a grilled French bread topped with mozzarella, grilled oven tomatoes, and basil pesto served with salad greens on the side. It's a very straightforward dish, simple but satisfying.
Then we had the Chile Marinated Ribeye (Php1,599) a seasoned and chargrilled ribeye steak topped with avocado pico de gallo and served with traditional Mexican corn on a cob, crispy tortilla strips, grilled tomato, chile sauce, and sour cream.
I have always been a big meat eater and I always adore how Outback treat their steaks so this one is a sure winner for me.
Now for those who are keeping their meat intake at bay, there is also Hearts of Gold Cod (Php449) which is basically fresh grilled flaky white fish topped with artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, green onions, and a light lemon sauce served with seasonal vegetables. I find it perfect for those who fancy a great fish dish for their meal which at that night was not me because hey, the ribeye was awesome!
Also included on the new menu is the Tropical Fruit Cheesecake (Php269) which is a classic New York-style cheesecake topped with tropical seasonal fruit, whipped cream, and lime zest, served with mango coulis. If you love cheesecake and is crazy about sour and sweet flavors combination, then this one is a great option for a dessert.
While I highly recommend trying out The Great Aussie Eats new menu selections, I would still highly recommend some of the old time favorites and other new items at Outback Steakhouse. Take for instance the iconic Typhoon Bloom (Php399), Spinach and Artichoke Dip (Php379), Kookaburra Wings (Php499), and my personal favorite, Crispy Parmesan Shrimp Salad (Php569).
Other tiems on the menu which I also highly recommend are the Scampi Topped Grilled Fish (Php549), Garlic Glazed Pork Loin (Php679), and the super amazing Braised Beef Risotto (Php699).
So if ever you happen to crave for some meaty steaks and other delicious dishes, I suggest that you go and visit Outback Steakhouse Restaurant branch near you and try The Great Aussie Eats and other items on the menu. I highly recommend the Chile Marinated Ribeye as well as the Beef Risotto.
