As a North American living in Chile, I’m always torn when I see a new U.S.-based chain opening. On the one hand, I prefer to dine in local establishments and support small businesses. On the other, a taste of home sure is inviting when you’ve been away for months or years. When I saw Outback Steakhouse scheduled to open in the new Mall Vivo in Los Trapenses, I was a little disappointed that another chain restaurant had made it to Chile. I also knew I would go there to see if I could get that delicious fresh off the grill steak for which Outback is well known.
