Food News: Cool Lunch Deals from Outback Steakhouse

What's for lunch? Outback Steakhouse introduces its new Lunch promotion, "Great Meal, Good Deal" with a selection of signature dishes starting at only P 199. Now that's cool. 

I've always been a fan of Outback's classic steaks, serving a good quality steak without the usual sauce. Like they say, a good steak is all you need, no need for steak sauce. But Outback Steakhouse is more than just steaks. And now you can try some of Outback's other signature dishes for lunch from Monday to Friday up to 3pm for some of the best lunch deals in the metro. As with all of Outback's dishes, the Lunch items are made from scratch, ranging from pasta to meat dishes.

Established in Florida in 1988, Outback Steakhouse now has over 1,000 locations in 22 countries. And through the years, Outback Steakhouse has always been the place for great steaks. But there are now more reasons to check out Outback...

Recently, I got to sample Outback's cool lunch dishes one evening along with other bloggers.  I start off with an Apple Martini (P 195), one of Outback's signature cocktails, a cool blend of Stolichnaya Vodka, sour apple schnapps and Outback's proprietary citrus mix. Like an episode from Mad Men, nothing like a two Martini lunch...or dinner.

We were also served some of Outback's classic appetizers, including the popular Typhoon Bloom (P 329), hand-cut, fresh onion rings dusted with Outback's own secret seasonings, stacked high and fried to golden crispness, served with a special dipping sauce. An old favorite, Outback's signature onion rings are always great starters, and go well with many of Outback's main dishes.

Then, the first of Outback's Lunch specials arrived, starting with the Chicken Fried Chicken (P 199), tender chicken hand-breaded and fried crisp and golden, topped with a rich and classic white gravy on mashed potatoes. Country style fried chicken fillet with gravy and mashed potatoes, and for only P 199, you can't beat that.

Next, the Chicken Parmesan (P 299), tender chicken breast fillet, breaded and deep-fried, topped with homemade marinara sauce, melted Swiss cheese, Parmesan cheese and served with a side of linguini marinara. Tender chicken with a hearty pasta, another cool lunch combo. Outback also offers a Pan Seared Fish in Pesto Linguini (P 199) in its lunch promo for more options.

Teriyaki Beef Medallions (P 549), fire-grilled teriyaki marinated steak, onions, red and green peppers, served over a bed of seasoned rice with a choice of one freshly-made side. A hefty lunch plate, a sure winner for meat lovers. Tender grilled beef and rice, a personal favorite.

Victoria's Filet (P 599), tender and juicy 6 oz thick-cut fillet, served with mashed potatoes and fresh seasonal vegetables. A good sized portion, steaks are always a sure bet at Outback Steakhouse with their USDA beef. And with the promotional price for lunch, this one's hard to beat.

BBQ Pork Ribs (P 549), an indivifual portion of the signature fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs with tangy BBQ glaze and Aussie fries. Tender ribs with a classic smoky flavor, great for sharing. Another personal favorite, great with the Typhoon Bloom and a few beers.

After a great meal, cap it with one of Outback's signature desserts, like the Chocolate Thunder from Down Under (P 315), fresh baked pecan brownie topped with rich vanilla ice cream drizzled with warm chocolate sauce, sprinkled with chocolate shavings and capped with whipped cream. And the best way to enjoy, slice a piece from the top all the way down ensuring you have all the components in every spoonful. Nice.

Dessert Sampler Trio (P 475), a combo platter of Outback's signature desserts, Chocolate Thunder from Down Under, Cheesecake and Banana Nut Cake, all in one plate. If you can't decide which dessert to have, go for the Sampler Trio and get a taste of Outback's more popular desserts.

Another Apple Martini? Why not.

The daily lunch specials highlight Outback's quality ingredients in all its dishes, and offers superior value too. Just the place for lunch. Special thanks to Donabel Fernandez, Marketing Manager, Outback Steakhouse for an awesome meal. So what's for lunch? Check out Outback's cool lunch deals!
