Outback Steakhouse Jakarta

Outback Steakhouse is an Australian-themed steakhouse restaurant, serving typical steakhouse menu namely steak, ribs, burger, seafood, chicken dishes, pasta dishes, etc.. Having late supper that night, we decided to share two dishes between the four of us, here are what we had:

As a starter, we were served a loaf of warm, crusty but soft inside bread with butter. Geez, believe me, this is great! I could have the whole thing myself!

Seared Prime Rib (Rp 289 900): 8 oz of seasoned and slow-roasted prime rib served with traditional au jus. It was cooked to medium-well, soft and still a little pink inside.. And the herbed-mashed potatoes? Loved it!

Half rack of Baby Back Ribs (Rp 174 900) served with French fries: honestly, I was quite disappointed with it when it was first served.. Personally, I think this is too little for half a rack of ribs, not worth what you paid for.. But I must say that it was well-cooked, well-seasoned, melt-in-your-mouth ribs. Just wished there were more.. Continue reading

On Tap, Taipei

There are quite a few pub/bar around Da’an District and On Tap is one of them. They call themselves “Taipei’s Only Real Pub” and I could see why.. Comprehensive food menu, “on tap” beer, bottled beer, shots, spirits, makes this pub a nice place to hang around.. They also have daily specials, which is worth checking out..DSC03295 DSC03296 DSC03301 Condiments for your food.. DSC03302 Continue reading

1885 Burger Store, Taipei

I notice Taipei has a lot of specialities burger store, and since I love good burgers, every time I know of one, I go and try. This time it’s the 1885 Burger Store. The location of the store sort of makes it less popular than other burger store, however, there are heaps of people waiting when I was there on weekend..DSC03726DSC03705DSC03706Daily specials.. I don’t think they are of a very good deal though..DSC03707 Continue reading

Focus Kitchen 肯恩廚房, Da’an, Taipei

Stumbled upon this cafe one Sunday morning and managed to secure myself a table to try out their food.. Approximately 5 minutes walk from Dongmen MRT Station (Orange Line), this cafe focuses upon their food and service quality, which can be seen by their “open kitchen” concept. When you enter the cafe, you are welcomed by their friendly staff, and you can watch the skilfully-trained chefs preparing orders. Their seats are mostly on “lower ground”..DSC04084DSC04083DSC04082 DSC04068 Continue reading

Jimolulu – A Taste of Hawaii Paradise, Taipei

Friendly and prompt service, good food, great drinks, they are enough to make anyone come back. Jimolulu serves american-hawaiian-style food; burgers, pasta, risotto, pita, but they also have Hawaiian loco-moco and stews. In addition, their Tiki Bar serves an array of cocktails (and they are so pretty you can’t help but to order one!) as well as other beverages..DSC04354 DSC04190DSC04203Calamari ringsDSC04204Wild wild west beef stew with bread: tender, full of flavour beef with fresh salads, a great stew!
