For Esther’s 20th birthday, we all (Esther, Casey, Hannah, & I) headed down to Outback’s Steakhouse for dinner. I’ve heard this was a pricy place but what the heck, you only live once. Now I’ve never been to Outback’s in the states so I wasn’t sure of what to expect or anything. The menu was pretty elaborate & had everything from pasta to of course, steak.
our complimentary bread & butter. IT WAS SO GOOD
Casey got a steak of some sort. Hannah & I each got the garlic rib-eye. And the birthday girl got ribs. Our steaks came with an appetizer & two sides. I got mushroom soup as my appetizer & fries/veggies as my two sides. I wish I knew how to say baked potato in Korean hahah. Hannah did & she got a baked potato. It took about 35 minutes for our food to come.

So being the country bumpkin that I am, I do not know “steak” terms. I got my steak “medium rare” which I assume meant that it was cooked with only a tiny portion still being red…. Uhhh yea, apparently medium rare meant that it was barely cooked HAHAHA. I usually don’t eat my meat this red… I found out I was supposed to tell them “MEDIUM WELL DONE.” Damn it. But it was still a good steak. But it was effing huge. I finished 1/4 of it before becoming really full. I took the rest of it to-go. I found out that they gave me two new loaves of bread as part of my to-go bag. High five to Outback’s for being generous. I’ll probably bring this as lunch to school tomorrow & just gnaw on it during grammar hour haha. Oh the bill.. my steak was 36,000 won & I got a raspberry lemonade so total: 39,500 won. I wonder how much this would cost back home…
Not sure what Hannah is doing with a buttered knife…. o_O
