Impressed with the food we had at Outback Steakhouse not long ago, we decided to drop by their first branch at BB Park to explore more of their menu. It was a quiet Saturday afternoon for them and there were only two tables customers at the time including us.
Service was attentive and our orders arrived quickly. We had one of the Outback favorites – BBQ Beef Ribs (half @ RM39.95) which comes with Aussie fries.
The portion might look small for half a rack but it was actually quite meaty and packed full of beefy flavor. And while it’s far from being the most tender ribs we ever had, the meat did come clean off the bone easily.
Outback Steakhouse dry-age their steaks for 21 days to ensure tenderness and maximum flavor and it certainly shows. The New York Strip (10oz @ RM59.95) was perfectly cooked to my specification – medium rare with a juicy pink center that cuts through like butter.
Even though I prefer my steaks plain, the accompanying sauce is just too delicious to ignore. One thing for sure it does not taste like any mushroom or black pepper sauce served at the typical Western food stall.
As usual, SL would go for the fish and had the Pacific Rim Salmon @ RM39.95. If you think Outback is only good for steaks you’d surprised at how well this salmon was prepared.
Pan seared with honey balsamic glaze, the salmon filllet was then dressed with a wonderful orange ginger butter sauce that was both citrusy and aromatic. Everything just worked together brilliantly and frankly speaking, this dish was quite fantastic and completely surpassed our expectations.
All in all, the lunch was more than satisfactory and we enjoyed pretty much everything and the drinks were great too. The only complaint I had was that the restaurant felt warm even though the air-conditioning was on. That’s certainly something they should look into, especially given the hot weather in KL.
