Outback Steakhouse near me
A signature Outback is a Bloomin’ Onion. It is a single-pound onion cut into open, brown, deep-fried ‘bloom’ and served with mayonnaise-sauce. You find similar products in Chile’s Awesome Blossom (closed) and Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon’s Texas Rose.
Many of the Bloomin’s onions have shot high calories, which often reach 1,500 calories.
Outback also offers some steaks, fish, and other menu items from burgers to salads in the American chain restaurant. While ‘Outback Australian’ cuisine is not very well-defined, ordinary Australian foods are not on the Outback Steakhouse menu.
This means that despite the aim of visual merchandising, the ‘ Australian’ moniker can only be regarded as a topical restaurant, without a real effort to represent Australian cuisine.
