Yishun Park Hawker Centre

PRICE: $18 (Australian Angus Reserved Grain Fed Ribeye Steak)

Armed with a mission to bring restaurant-quality chargrilled Western food to the public, this inconspicuous stall at Yishun Park Hawker Centre is every northerner’s dream come true. With steaks starting at only $18, we dare say it’s worth the trip up to one of Singapore’s most troubling neighbourhoods.



Wooloomooloo Steakhouse Singapore

Swissotel The Stamford

PRICE: $84++ (USDA Prime Beef, Rib Eye, 12-ounce)

With prices starting at $64 for a 10-ounce Filet Mignon from all the way down under, this well-appointed spot at the Swissotel The Stamford really leaves no stone unturned. Impeccable service, remarkable steaks, elegant decor, and with a sweeping view to boot, there’s really nothing we don’t love.

SKIRT

W Singapore – Sentosa Cove

PRICE: $118++ (Sher Wagyu Rib Eye MS 8-9)

Would you travel all the way to Sentosa for a meal? For the steaks at this trailblazing grill house, we definitely would. With a concept and philosophy centred around sustainability and simplicity—allowing the flavours of each ingredient to really shine—there’s little doubt as to why this is one of Singapore’s most loved steak houses!

Dinner Menu


Morton's The Steakhouse

Mandarin Oriental Singapore

PRICE: $122++ (Center-cut Prime Ribeye)

One of the truest and bluest Steakhouses in Singapore, this luxurious restaurant situated at The Mandarin Oriental has a name that’s now synonymous with excellence—and we’re not surprised. No detail here is overlooked, they serve some of the best available aged grain-fed beef, and there’s even an equally renowned wine list to top things all off. Truly an all-rounded experience one can’t miss!

MediumRare by Saveur

Century Square

Recommended by Serene Goh

If you’re an east-side dweller, then there’s really no reason why you shouldn’t pop by this spot at Century Square. From the brains that brought you Saveur, this casual eatery serves all your classics—quality cuts with mushroom, black pepper, or cafe de Paris sauce, but the real question is, have you had Steak with Black bean sauce, or even Mala sauce? Mmmmm.

200G Ribeye: $20++

There are endless dining options in the East, but if you’re looking for some quality slabs of meat, then this is where you’ll need to go. Grilled over charcoal, they’re served with one-of-a-kind avocado butters that adds another dimension to the already flavourful experience.
