Where's the beef?

Not on our plates, though there's plenty of it in Outback Steakhouse. Outback is an Australian steakhouse restaurant and its interiors are liberally decorated with koalas, kangaroos, alligators, boomerangs and aboriginal art. There's a bar on the other side of those lovely wood-paneled booths if all you care for is a drink. Outback is also an international franchise—based in Tampa, Florida! Ah, globalization.

dans les restaurants australiens, j'aime bien les steaks d'autruche
Australian in restaurants, I like the ostrich steaks

Yummm. But somehow, looking at this, I'm craving a grilled cheese sandwich.

Hilda, thanks for your comment on my site. I look forward to your photos also. I have not yet been to Manila but hope to go there someday. Your photo today is great but I am surprised an Outback steakhouse landed in Manila. An odd location for one.

We also have one here... they all pretty much look the same. I guess that's a comfort to some people. :)

I will admit that their food is quite good for a chain. I like their salads and my husband says the steaks are a very good value.

this looks like an awesome place to try some good beef

Sadly, I can't enjoy the beef - I'm pescotarian :D


Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments.

We used to have one of those in Boise, ID. And it went out of business. We ate there once and consumed the saltiest food I ever remember in a restaurant.

We have to travel 40 miles to get to an Outback restuarant. The interior of that restaurant is very similar to the one you pictured. Ah, globalization!

I like those seats.

Hi Hilda,

It was fun being tagged. hehehe and i am looking forward to that coffee after a hard day of shopping like u promised.

The restaurant looks good. I have not had anything 'Australian' ever... hmmm i must search for the Indian counterpart of this Australian join in Delhi.

P.S: Republic Day is different from Independence Day. Republic Day is the day India adopted its constitution. We celebrate our independence day on August 15.

A warm atmosphere which gives me envy to sit me to eat

Great picture Hilda! I'll bet you didn't know that Tim Gannon, one of the co-founders of Outback is an alumnus of Florida State University here in Tallahassee. He is a big supporter of FSU and comes back from time to time to visit.

do they serve more vegetables than that giant greasy fried onion these days? Hope so cause their steaks are sooooooooooo good.

Jackie said...

I hope the koalas were only on the wall and not on the menu!

Saretta said...

Excellent light and color!

angela said...

Lovely mellow light in the restaurant. It looks very inviting...there's an Australian bar near Valbonne though it's not quite as up market as yours :)

marley said...

You can just tell its part of a generic chain eatery, it looks nice though!

the donG said...

shot is really detailed! beautiful but yes, where's the beef???

Ruby said...

I love the shot Hilda - I could just sit down at that table!

We don't have that chain over here (as far as I know) but we do have the American one Frankie and Benny's, which I'm quite a fan of.

Ursel said...

That reminds me, I still have a gift card for that restaurant here in SF. I didn't know Outback is an Australian restaurant chain, thanks for the information.

Pam said...

We have an Outback in Jupiter and enjoy eating there ;)

Can you believe we even have a Outback on my island. It's not in Ramsey, but Dougals the capitol. Very popular place especially when the rugby is on.

lunarossa said...

As long as they don't offer koalas, kangaroos and alligators steaks I'm fine with it! I already struggle with beef. Looks nice and cosy. Ciao. A.

JM said...

It seems we both have been focused on globalization, in what concerns restaurants, on our last posts; the difference is yours is nice and mine isn't...

They used to have Outback in Montreal but they closed it now.

charlestondailyphoto said...

We have them here in South Carolina and they are quite popular. I like the Australian commercials.

Z said...

The 'blooming onion' from there is about the only thing I miss (from the US). I don't even see onions that large in Switzerland!

See ya!
