Groupon Review - Outback steakhouse

2323So here is another short review on one of our groupon food adventures! We were at marina square and can't decide on what to have for dinner some time ago.. I vaguely remember seeing a groupon for Outback Steakhouse (which is located at Millenia Walk), hence we decided to make a booking, purchase the groupon vouchers on my mobile app and head there for dinner! Yes, we booked before buying our vouchers haha, stalk my tips to shop on Groupon if you haven't. The groupon deal is still available now if you are interested, S$19.90 for a set meal instead of S$43.20 at 2 locations, available for 1 pax, 2 pax and 4 pax. We bought the 2 pax one of course haha! There are only 3 choices for the set meal - Ribs and Chicken combo, Black Pepper Steak Bites or Toowoomba Chicken - and each set comes with a soup of the day and a glass of soda. The staffs were polite and we were seated very quickly upon arrival. Each table also gets a free loaf of bread and butter, groupon or not, good for munching on as we wait for our food. image And here's our food! image If I remember correctly, the soup was some chicken and vegetable soup, and it tasted alright! image The BF picked Black Pepper Steak Bites since we were at a Steakhouse, and it was okayish. It comes with veggies as well as some fries. As mentioned in the groupon voucher, this is steak bites and not a big slice of steak that you get from the regular menu, so please take note if you wanna pick this. Taste was okay but it really seemed like scrap pieces of meat as you can see from the photo. He said that he'd rather pick the Ribs and Chicken combo if he was given a choice again. image I picked the Toowoomba Chicken, which is a piece of chicken breast, topped with Toowoomba sauce, and it comes with some veggies. I would prefer it to come with fries or potatoes instead of veggies, opps. The meat was pretty dry (chicken breast is meant to be dry) but it was fine for me as I prefer less fatty meat, so it depends on your preference I guess. The sauce was yummy, but the prawns that come with the sauce are those tasteless and transparent looking crystal prawns which I abhor. Still, I can't deny that I liked the sauce hahaha. image

Overall Review:

The food was okay, but not remarkably good. I can't deny I was a little disappointed in the food, as I have high expectations for this place which charges over S$40 for a set meal. I believe I am able to get a more satisfactory western meal at another restaurant for S$19.90. Maybe it is because we are restricted to 3 choices only, due to the groupon deal... However, it is still worth a try since it is more than 50% off, if you are interested. Their regular menu looks not bad though, so I am tempted to head back there to try their regular menu next time.
