    This American Man Hilariously Took His Australian Boyfriend To Outback Steakhouse To See How Authentic It Was, And He Was Very, Very Confused

    I finally found out if a bloomin' onion was Australian or not.

    I love a good American and non-American couple.


    My favorite show is 90 Day Fiancé after all. 

    We've seen a bunch of Italian and American couples going viral recently.

    But now I found an Australian and American one.

    Meet Chris and Charles.

    They decided to go to Outback Steakhouse to get Charles' opinions about it.

    Which, BTW, it would be a sin for me not to mention that Outback has *the* best bread in the business!

    Do you look at the bread as half gone or half left? #steakhousephilosophy

    Anyway, Chris posted his experience in viral TikToks. Here's part 1:

    And here's part 2:

    For those who can't watch the TikToks, let me break it down for you.

    First off, Charles was asked what he knew about the restaurant to begin with.

    He knew that there were these things called "bloomin' onions" on the menu, but he really had no idea what they were.

    He expected there to be some sort of schnitzel.

    And for dessert, he said there better be a pavlova.

    Now, let's see what happened...

    Automatically, he was "impressed" by the super-authentic Aussie decor.

    Which, like, same. I especially love the kangaroo crossing signs.

    Then, the menu. It was a bit confusing.

    @bautistud / Via

    The questions amounted to: What is Australian about this?

    how is a margarita austrlian he says confused
    @bautistud / Via

    And mac 'n' cheese? What?

    mac & cheese is not austarlian
    @bautistud / Via

    They basically noticed that these were just American foods with Australian words in front of it:

    like wallaby
    @bautistud / Via

    Like any normal human being, he loved the bloomin' onion, which, like, is truly one of the most delicious foods in the world.

    I know this image looks gross, but damn it's so good.

    He got a steak, and he ate it with mustard because apparently that's Australian.

    And a Foster's, which, like, I'm still not sure if that's Australian or not?

    @bautistud / Via

    Overall, he gave it a 7 out of 10.

    @bautistud / Via

    But he gave it a 0 for being authentically Australian.

    ha ha ha in the car
    @bautistud / Via

    And when jokingly asked if it was "cultural appropriation," they just laughed:

    Either way, I'm craving that pumpernickel bread now!
