Outback: Steaks and BBQ
Suncheon is a large city and therefore has a multitude of restaurants, but very few are western. You can find good Korean foods on each and every street, but western plates are harder to find.
Outback gives the same standard menu and decor as all the other chain restaurant's locations.
Due to lack of many other venues, chances of running into other foreigners and increasing your network of social contacts is higher here, particularly on a Friday or Saturday nights.
Favorite Dish: If you've been to an Outback before, they are more or less the same. The BBQ chicken is usually quite moist. The steaks can be good provided you communicate clearly how you want them cooked (wait staff often confuse well, rare and medium rare).
