Outback Steakhouse is 30 years old! Enjoy up to 30% discount!

Did you know that Outback Steakhouse is 30 years old this year? To celebrate its 30th birthday, Outback Steakhouse will be offering up to 30% discounts when you dine there. Scroll down to the end of the post for details on how to obtain the 30% discount. We checked out Outback Steakhouse’s outlet at Orchard Gateway. I prefer this outlet compared to the previous location at Millenia Walk as it’s much brighter here and the decor is not so dated.

Outback Steakhouse Singapore - Typhoon Boom $15.90

I’ve always liked Outback Steakhouse for its famous Typhoon onion rings. When I was first served the dish more than a decade ago, I was amazed. I still am amazed actually! The humongous portion of onion rings still tastes so good after all these years. Huge crispy piping hot onion rings, not tiny flimsy bits. So good.

Lawry’s The Prime Rib– The Prime (Rib) choice for special occasions

Even though there are many steakhouses and restaurants serving steak in Singapore, we still like to go back to Lawry’s The Prime Rib every so often, for the simple reason that the steak is consistently good, and we like the steak there. Yes, even food bloggers crave consistency once in a while, especially when you have a baby in tow and need to know that the restaurant is spacious.

Specifically, I like the Prime Rib at Lawry’s. The steak is always tender, and it comes with a whole pool of special gravy that I like, and it’s one of the few places that provides creamy mustard as a condiment! I could eat dollops of that creamy mustard, it’s so good! It’s not at all cheap to dine at Lawry’s, but if you have the AMEX or CIMB credit card, you could get 50% discount if it is just 2 pax dining.  Click here to see all their promotions. They are also having a Christmas menu. Scroll down to see the entire menu.

Outback Steakhouse–New dishes introduced

[Media Invite]

Outback Steakhouse has introduced 4 new dishes to their menu so we were there a couple of weeks ago to check it out, with baby in tow. If there’s one good thing about visiting restaurants (as opposed to cafes), it’s that they are usually more spacious and can accommodate a stroller easily.

Baby is not supposed to eat fries!

I haven’t been to Outback Steakhouse for the longest time. In fact, I believe it could have been a decade ago that I last visited! Time has stood still at this place according to the Partner, as he’s been back on average once a year. Well, I am glad to see that some things haven’t changed, namely the hugely popular Typhoon Bloom onion rings. These are probably one of the most famous onion rings around because of the way they are presented. Crispy batter encasing piping hot and juicy substantial sized onion rings, it was hard to stop and leave space for the mains.

Wooloomooloo Steakhouse

I hadn’t been to a steakhouse in a while so I was really pleased to receive an invitation from Wooloomooloo/Sixth Sense Communications to come sample the latest steakhouse in town named after the Australian town of Woolloomooloo in Sydney.

Wooloomooloo Steakhouse, an independent group of celebrated premium steakhouses from Hong Kong, comprises of 300sq ft of wining and dining space. Premium steaks, Australian-inspired offerings, as well as an outstanding range of wines and cocktails can be found at Wooloomooloo. The restaurant touts itself to be comparable to other steakhouses like Mortons and Cut.

The restaurant is really stylish and you can’t help feeling like you’re in for a treat the minute you step into the restaurant. Apart from the elegant furnishings and leather upholstered seats, the restaurant is also decorated with neat wood piles – a design synonymous with all Wooloomooloo restaurants.

BTW, the restaurant and bar offer a fantastic view of the F1 race track. Unfortunately, Wooloomooloo is completely booked for this year’s F1 races. Better luck next year. Or you could try catching the fireworks here too.

Our dining area for the evening was in a semi-private area. Quite like the semi-private area as it makes you feel like nobody can see you, even though they can if they choose to walk past. Private rooms tend to be very cramped and dark, which may be claustrophobic to some. The downside is that you can still hear the noise coming from the patrons in the restaurant.

The Prime Society

I was sieving through my old photos and I realised I haven’t written about my birthday dinner! I might have mentioned before that I like to celebrate my whole birthday month, and not just the birthDAY itself. I like to space out all the treats so as to maximise the enjoyment and anticipation. I mean won’t you agree that the birthDay is just 1 day only, and one day is just too short to fully celebrate? In fact, come to think of it, the Partner still owes me a treat to Waku Ghin! I’d postponed it after already celebrating my birthday a few times that week, plus a few media tastings I had to contend with. I think now is a good time to remind him that a trip to Waku Ghin is in order….

Most of the time, as I can imagine would be the case with other food bloggers, I am the one tasked with the job of finding new restaurants to whet our appetites. It’s an arduous task actually, for it’s not a matter of just listing out the top restaurants. There are criteria to be fulfilled, such as location, ambience, the availability of a particular dish, pricing, and the like. If you can’t do it fast enough, your intelligence is questioned. Should the restaurant fail to live up to expectations, rest assured you will hear about it as if you owned the restaurant. But more on that another day.

For my birthday, the Partner actually managed to rustle up the idea of going to Prime Society. Very good job, it was a very enjoyable evening and the steaks were excellent. Ah well, at least he knew he would like the place, he’s a steak person!

It’s always a bit of a bother going to Dempsey Hill if you aren’t driving, but this time it was well worth the effort. I liked Prime Society the minute I entered it. It has this European kind of decor, with the brick columns, tall ceiling, mini chandeliers and murals of battle soldiers. In fact, you’re expected to think of yourself as hailing from an upper class society, if not from royalty itself. Check out these commandments, and you’ll know what I mean!

The food was EXCELLENT, and if you’re looking for a higher end steak place without the higher end $$$, Prime Society is the place to go.

Prime Society - CommandmentsThou shalt not have a vegetarian friend!! Certainly, it would be best to leave the vegetarians and pescetarians at home when coming to the Prime Society. Okay, they have a Barramundi if you must, but that’s really about all there is for non-meat eaters. Other than the pesky pescetarians (my father is one), I believe I fulfil the rest of the commandments. 🙂

Prime Society - Bone Marrow with Celeriac Remoulade, Parsley and Toast $16 (2)

Prime Society - Bone Marrow with Celeriac Remoulade, Parsley and Toast $16 (5) Bone Marrow with Celeriac Remoulade, Parsley and Toast $16

What can I say, it’s bone marrow. Super delicious and super sinful! The texture of bone marrow is like that of fat, without any gristly bits getting in the way. It’s soft and voluptuous, each mouthful sliding down your throat so easily. Be careful about eating too much of it, it’s definitely meant to be shared! The lemon helped to cut a bit of the greasiness, but really, 2 or 3 mouthfuls of the stuff is more than enough to start making you satiated! If I have any complaints, it’s that there’

Prime Society - 100% Natural Pasture Fed Black Angus Rib Eye 220g from North Western Tasmania $44 100% Natural Pasture Fed Black Angus Rib Eye 220g from North Western Tasmania $44

The Partner ordered this. Where possible, he always opts for the Pasture/Free Range options rather than the Grain Fed cattle as it is a healthier and more flavourful choice. We always go for medium rare and this steak was cooked just right. The steak was tender while retaining a nice bite. It was flavourful and moist. The specks of salt on the top was more for garnishing as the steak tasted perfect the way it came. As this steak arrived first, I had the opportunity to steal a few bites and I was almost worried that I should have ordered this instead!

Prime Society - Wagyu Tri-Tip (3) Wagyu Tri-Tip $50

When my steak arrived, I had absolutely no regrets at all. This is hands down, the most tasty, juicy, fattening, flavourful, delicious, divine, SUBLIME piece of steak I have ever eaten to date! This steak wasn’t in the menu, but the manager recommended it to us as they had some stock. Until then, I’d never even heard of Tri-Tip, but I realise now it is the bottom Sirloin, and there’s only a bit from each cow. It was only 150gm, and I thought I would not be full, but the manager assured us that because Wagyu Tri-Tip is quite fattening, 150gm would be more than enough! And he was definitely right. I was a little worried about the fat that I was ingesting. Okay fine who am I kidding, despite the fears I still finished the entire steak. I wouldn’t have ordered the Bone Marrow in this case, because that’s really too much greasiness in the appetiser and the mains.

It’s interesting why the manager offered the Tri-Tip so hesitantly. Did he think that it would be some exotic flavour that I would not be used to? Well I can safely say it should be made a PERMANENT feature in the menu!

Prime Society - Wagyu Tri-Tip Mmmmm…..MEAT. Really, a work of art.

Towards the end, I have to admit the greasiness got to me so more pieces of lemon would have been appreciated.

Prime Society - Seasonal Vegetables $7 Seasonal Vegetables $7

A tuft of vegetables is provided with the steak, but that’s hardly enough to meet your daily fibre requirements so we ordered a serving of seasonal vegetables. I never like having to order additional vegetables. I feel they should be provided with the main course! I feel they are surreptitiously trying to make the steaks look cheaper when they are not. I know Mortons does this, and a few other places as well and I don’t like it. It’s kind of like the same feeling you get when restaurants charge you for plain water.
