I had heard from friends at the office that Outback Steakhouse in Kapolei had rolled out a new “test” menu with new offerings. As an Outback fan, I had no option but to investigate, and being that we still owed my sister-in-law Kim a belated birthday dinner, that was as good as an excuse as any to head there on Sunday. Even though she doesn’t eat meat or pork, Outback is one of her favorite restaurants for a simple reason: Lobster Tails!
In speaking with the manager, Outback Kapolei is the only restaurant on Oahu right now offering this concept menu, which they are looking to implement at all restaurants throughout the country in 2010. The new menu has been scaled back a bit removing some of the more expensive items and focusing the menu on quality and value. So, if you want to play a hand in the restaurant’s future, I highly recommend getting there, tasting some of the new dishes, and giving them your feedback. Our family really enjoyed the new appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Not to mention, the service here is always consistently good!
You can find a more complete review of our Outback Steakhouse dining experience on Yelp, which I just posted recapping our evening. But to give you a peak at some of the new offerings, I share with you the following. And when someones says “Let’s go Outback tonight” just remember it’s definitely worth the drive to Kapolei to get a taste of something new. Bon appetit!
