The Local Angle

It's Not in the Outback, but It Is a Nice Steakhouse

September 15, 2000|VALERIE GUTIERREZ

The Australian Experience, without leaving home:

How 'bout that steak on the rocks, mate?

At Boomerock in Old Town Pasadena, get your meat cooked on slabs of rock heated to 700 degrees surrounded by the sounds and sights of Aboriginal Australia.

The decor is colorful and artistic. There are funky stripes along the wall, painted boomerangs and artwork, along with massive columns dividing the room made to look like Aboriginal carvings.

Charles Perry, a Times food critic, recommends the jumbo sweets, a foot-high stack of fried onion rings.

Eat them while listening to live didgeridoo music, or purchase a didgeridoo, a long pipelike instrument that originated with the Aborigines and makes droning sounds. Boomerock sells an instructional video and conducts monthly workshops on how to play the instrument.

Then, take home Aboriginal art or a stuffed koala and give your home an Aboriginal feel.
