I had a chance to sample their Manila’s Signature Dishes 2010 set at Outback Steakhouse Glorietta last week. The dishes are part of their featured menu items for the quarter
Crispy Calamari Salad. I loved calamari, fried squid in batter, so this salad and appetizer combo really whetted my appetite for the main course. The calamari pieces were big and crunchy yet soft and tender inside. The crispy greens and plump tomato pieces were very fresh and the dressing was on the sweetish side,a definite plus for me.
Soup of the Day. French Onion Soup was the featured soup for that day. It was topped with melted cheese giving it a nice sharp flavor. The onion soup was very creamy and the rich onion taste was very evident
Beef Tenderloin with Mustard Demiglace and Bearnaise Sauce. The 6 oz. beef tenderloin steak was cooked a perfect medium well, not something all restaurants do well. It was perfectly seared outside but the inside is still pinkish, giving it the tenderness while retaining the smoky char flavor outside.The demiglace and bearnaise sauce was very good, and I kept dipping my steak in it. I also liked the pesto mashed potatoes, a unique take on the mashed potatoes and giving it a nutty and herb flavor.
A wonderful piece of steak paired with a nice seafood salad eaten together with friends over excellent conversation. What a nice thing to have on a lazy Sunday evening.
