Tucked away on the 70th storey of Swissôtel The Stamford, this exquisite contemporary grill is home to artisanal beef cuts – grilled to perfection in a Josper Charcoal Oven. The menu boasts a variety of excellent cuts so go for the signature beef tasting platter ($160). Tuck into a Japanese Miyazaki wagyu A4, Australian Wylarah wagyu MB8 and American Aspen Ridge, Angus USDA prime.

Though we don’t mind splurging every now and then, an excellent steak meal doesn’t always have to cost an arm or leg. Case in point: Fat Belly’s juicy and tender steaks. At just $22, you get a perfectly grilled USDA 150-day grain fed Angus flat iron steak. Complete it with a glass of red (the menu has excellent wine pairings) and delish sides such as creamed kale and roasted spiced sweet potatoes.

New Ubin Seafood
Meat lovers know a good cut of steak will set you back no matter what, but if you’re willing to be a little creative with your steak experience, New Ubin Seafood might just save you a pretty penny. This unpretentious restaurant is home to the legendary steak fried rice. While it may sound like an odd way to serve steak, the results speak for themselves. The steak is chopped up and served in cubes on a wooden board, perfect for fuss-free sharing in groups. The magic here is found in the fried rice, which makes use of trimmed beef fat to impart some charred beefy goodness.

To sweeten the deal, each steak order comes with a personal touch as guests can choose from a selection of unique vintage steak knives sourced from across the globe.

Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse
Another option for Fiorentina style steak to share is Bistecca’s massive 1.1kg F1 wagyu steak.

Its quaint heritage shophouse confines and subtle lighting make this a prime spot for date night.

Love that classic steak and fries combo? Pop by Les Bouchons for an awesome meal. The beef cuts are mainly priced below $40, and they come with free-flow (yes, really!) duck fat fries. The latter’s certainly not for the faint-hearted (or health-conscious).

This steakhouse with a view is simply amazing. You could go for something like the Australian Angus beef filet mignon or the wagyu tomahawk (to share), but if you really want a royal treat, order the beef Wellington. Australian filet mignon with mushroom duxelle, covered with parma ham, topped with foie gras and then wrapped with puff pastry… diet? What diet?

What sets this restaurant apart from the rest? They use a parilla grill to prepare their meats so expect perfect smoky, juicy steaks. The wagyu options (full blood and F1) are always great, but if you can’t decide, go for the tasting plate to sample five breeds.

This Parisian Bistro on Duxton Hill has only one main course on its menu, and it’s damn (pardon our French) good. Its Plat du Jour is the signature Steak Frites, smothered in its secret sauce, and paired with deliciously seasoned fries and fresh salad. Its signature Coulant Caramel Au Beurre Salé, a salted caramel lava cake, is great for afters.
L’Entrecote, 36 Duxton Hill, Singapore 089614; 70 Collyer Quay, #01-01, Customs House, Singapore 049323
It’s no ordinary beef at this Aussie-style restaurant. It serves slabs of meat, grilled over open flames to give you a charred exterior then the taste of juicy tenderness once you bite into it. Steaks are also smoked, slow and hot roasted, baked, grilled, cooked and seasoned well to not only give you that intensely rich flavour, but to make sure it’s tasty to the bone.
