It's no secret that Singaporeans have a great love of food, and good food at that. But, The Little Red Dot is also widely known to have a (not-so-secret) passion for steak. Elegant and high-end steakhouses are peppered all over the city serving Singaporean locals premium quality steaks, seared to perfection and oozing with flavour, just the way they like it. Where do these Singapore steakhouse havens lie though? Well, to be honest, you'd be hard-pressed to find an area without at least one restaurant specialising in all things bovine. So no matter if you find yourself in Marina Bay, Bukit Timah, Robertson Quay or Jurong West, there will be a Singapore steakhouse with a prized cut of meat waiting with your name on it.
For those new to the steak biz, it can be a little overwhelming figuring out which cut is the one for you. Luckily, the teams at Singapore's steakhouses are experts when it comes to selecting specific cuts, how they should be cooked, which wines should go with them and whether or not to have them with sauce. But first things first, here are a few cuts you'll definitely find on the menus at Singapore steakhouses. First up, at Smokey's BBQ in Joo Chiat, don't sleep on their famous 300g rib eye – highly marbled, this is one of the richest cuts available and is fire-grilled to absolute perfection. Meanwhile, over in Bugis, The Royals Steakhouse is one of Singapore's best, and specialises in Australian and New Zealand cuts. Their rib eye, tenderloin, striploin and 150 day grain-fed Black Angus are ones to keep an eye out for, and if you're not sure how you like your steak, trust your server because they'll always be able to guide you in the right direction.
The large majority of steakhouses in Singapore source their cuts from either Australia, New Zealand, the United States and increasingly, Japan for their sought-after wagyu. Wagyu is a highly marbled and commands quite a high price due to its extremely high quality. For those with a love of wagyu, one of the best steakhouses in Singapore to fill your boots with this delightful cut of meat, is Hot Stones Steak & Seafood Restaurant in Clarke Quay. Serving several types of wagyu, you'll be treated to your choice of Tajima wagyu sirloin, wagyu tenderloin, wagyu rib eye and, if you're craving pasta, the wagyu beef lasagna is outstanding. There's be a million reasons why people are going wild for wagyu, but one thing is for sure, if the idea of sinking your teeth into a grade nine marble, rich and fatty piece of wagyu is your idea of heaven, well, the steakhouses in Singapore are the places to do it.
Known around the world as steak and barbecue experts, the Brazilians certainly know what they're doing when it comes to serving melt-in-your-mouth steaks, often using every single part of the animal. This style of steakhouse has become a Singapore favourite, and leading the charge is the team behind Carnivore Brazilian Churrascaria. With three spaces in Marina Bay, City Hall and The Grandstand, these churrasco (barbecue) specialists serve up succulent steaks and meats cooked over fire with a range of salads and sides to go alongside, leaving even the most discerning steak fan, beyond satisfied. These Singapore steakhouses are chic and elegant, and the quality of the meat here is some of the best you'll find… getting hungry yet?
