Outpost Kitchen is an Autralian restaurant in Costa Mesa. As with all seasonal cooks, "Surfers Chef" Andre Sickinger rotates out his menu routinely. A honey-glazed roast pork, a slow-braised lamb and a flawless pan-seared Alaskan sea bass have been scrapped and might not ever come back. As of this writing, he’s replaced them with two new sandwiches and a salad with shrimp that your server might joke was grilled on the barbie. But the most Australian thing you could eat at Outpost, if you dare, is toast smeared with Vegemite, washed down with a flat white. Before you do, ask the cashier to dust off the Men at Work record and queue up that song. You know the one.
