Having had received a Michelin Star in 2016, this critically acclaimed steak restaurant promises slabs that are sure to hit the spot. In its cosily designed modern dining room, choose from some of the finest cuts of beef from USDA Prime, Australia and Japanese Wagyu. The 340g USDA Prime, Illinois Corn Fed, Aged 21 days New York Sirloin ($92) is a popular choice. It offers everything that you're looking for in a steak – lightly salted and peppered, broiled and then charred to produce a deliciously crisp exterior. Served with house-made sauces and delectable sides, such as the Peewee Potatoes ($18) and Cavatappi Pasta “Mac & Cheese” ($22), the steaks at CUT are on a whole different level.
Steak, wine and free-flow duck fat fries. Need we say more? Les Bouchons is our favourite French-style steakhouse in Singapore, and it's not just because each slab of glistening meat comes topped in herbed butter. Its steak frites are affordably priced at $39.80, regardless if you opt for sirloin or rib-eye and each order also comes with four types of sauces, a tangy side salad and all the French breads your little heart desires. Have a voracious appetite? Order the giant cote de boeuf, which comes in a minimum size of 1kg and can be shared between two very hungry people.
Tucked away on the fourth floor of the luxurious Mandarin Oriental, Morton’s Steakhouse is an old school steakhouse that transports you to glitzy New York City. With succulent steaks paired with a vast selection of wines, Morton’s is the place to be for steak with all the trimmings, including a show-and-tell ingredient trolley. The centre cut filet mignon (from $80), one of Morton's most popular choices, promises the softest and most tender steaks that you can have. Though somewhat lacking in marble or fat, the cut is occasionally served with finely diced bacon to make up for it.
At Wolfgang’s, it is understood that patience is a key ingredient for a delicious meal. The elegantly designed restaurant, with solid walnut floors and hanging chandeliers, only serves USDA Prime Black Angus Steaks that have been dry-aged on site for a period of 28 days. Choices include the New York sirloin ($109), rib-eye steak ($128), prime filet mignon ($118), and its signature porterhouse steak (from $195) that is meant to be shared. It comes sizzling on a hot plate, emitting the most alluring aroma – with a taste to match it. There are two cuts on each side of the T-bone: sirloin and filet mignon, which are both juicy, tender and utterly mouth-watering. With such meticulous effort put in its preparation, it is no wonder that the Wolfgang name is so recognised around the world for its exceptional steak.
The Feather Blade's founder Sheen Jet Leong spent a year working the kitchen and floor of the popular London eatery and brings what he loved and learnt from the joint to our shores. Expect 200g of juicy grilled beef priced at an affordable $21, which you can pair with Sichuan peppercorn sauce or classic bearnaise ($2). Save room for sides ($7) – The Feather Blade offers a mushroom medley, truffled cream corn, mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. Sticking to its ethos of serving alternative cuts, it offers weekly specials such as picanha, bavette and chuck-eye steaks as well.
The name is not the only unforgettable thing about this restaurant – trust us. Besides the breath-taking view of Singapore’s cityscape that you’re granted dining here, Wooloomooloo also promises to ‘raise the steaks’ of dining by offering the best cuts of beef shipped all the way from Australia. A must-try is the USDA Prime Rib Eye ($78/360g), which gave the restaurant its reputation as an exemplary steakhouse. Besides just being true to its grain-fed meat flavour, it is also very succulent and perfect just on its own. But, if you want to make your devouring extra memorable, pair it together with a selection of four sauces: peppercorn, mushroom, red wine madeira and au jus. At this restaurant, you’ll be able to escape from the bustle of town as you instead observe it from the warm yet sleek and sophisticated restaurant.
Who would have thought that a zi char joint that specialises in seafood would also serve great steak. Make your own surf and turf combo at New Ubin Seafood, where you get the best of both worlds next to a plate of Heart Attack Fried Rice. This kampong-style zi char restaurant serves all the local favorites plus some western dishes, one of which being its US Black Angus Rib-Eye Beef Steak ($15/100g). Served in cubes on a wooden chopping board, the US-imported beef is juicy, fatty, and has a distinct charred flavour. Paired together with Potato Wedges, smoked sea salt flakes and caramelised onions that are as delicious as the beef itself, the hunk of meat proves that you don't need to go to a steakhouse to satisfy your carnivorous side.
This modern butcher-cum-bistro grills and serves the same meat that it supplies to restaurants all over Singapore. A 220g US Prime Sirloin Steak with herb and butter sauce is priced at $28, and you can order unique sides like spätzle ($3.60) – German-style pasta made with fresh eggs.
The name of this restaurant is a lively expression of enthusiasm in Argentina – and that's exactly how you'll feel about its steaks. The restaurant takes pride in its Argentinean culture of weaving in creativity and the love for food, so you’ll expect a menu brimmed with the most unique blends of complementary flavours – and that extends to its steak as well. Most notably is its fan-favourite rib-eye steak, the Ojo de Bife ($65), which is paired with a punchy chimichurri sauce. As one of Singapore's only restaurants to serve South American cuisine, BoCHINche is definitely worth checking out.
Its name means steak in Italian so no prizes for guessing what this joint specialises in. Its signature sharing dish, the Bistecca alla Fiorentina ($188) is a thick char-grilled cut of T-bone steak, prepared in a traditional Tuscan way – over a high-temperature wood-fired grill. The result? A delicious tender steak, with a charred crust and a juicy centre. If you fancy other cuts, or rather eat a whole steak by yourself, worry not as there are individual quality cuts of tenderloin ($65), bone-in sirloin ($90), Wagyu striploin ($90), and rib-eye ($78) as well.
