Best Steaks in Singapore 2017

A good steak — a choice cut that has been handled with care, cooked with thought and seasoned perfectly — is just about one of the finest meals to treat oneself to. Whether you're looking for a no-frills beefy dish that's full on flavour but easy on the pockets, or all ready to splash out on both provenance and ambience for a celebration, this guide has got you covered.

For Charcoal-Grilled Hanger Steak

Known for its consistently high standards in food, modern Australian grill Burnt Ends makes our list for this pièce de résistance — the Onglet ($26/100g). Also known as hanger steak, this lesser celebrated cut is known for its big beefy flavour. The version here sees the meat charcoal-grilled to a succulent bite, served with melt-in-the-mouth bone marrow and a robust burnt onion sauce that elevates the beef's delicious smokiness. We recommend that you order it medium rare. A 200g piece is good to share between two diners, so it leaves you space to try other amazing meat-centric plates like the Burnt Ends Sanger ($20) and Beef Marmalade and Pickles ($14). Pro tip: Reservations are a must at this ever popular establishment. Also check if the onglet will be on the day's menu.

For a Prix Fixe Steak Lunch under $30

For a satisfying steak lunch in the CBD, look no further. Argentinian restaurant boCHINche serves up what we reckon is one of the most value-for-money set lunches. The Prix Fixe Menu offers a choice of two or three courses ($28; $33, includes dessert) with weekly changes to their dish offerings. boCHINche is known for their meats, so we're glad that their ribeye steak is a mainstay. Expect a hearty piece (180g) of tender Argentinian beef seasoned and grilled perfectly, served with wedges and chimichurri mayo on the side. Portions are generous so bring your favourite colleague and get dessert to share. Pro tip: Before you reserve your seat, check their Instagram account (@bochinchesg) for the week's menu.

For Steak Frites in a Parisian Bistro

This Club Street institution is perfect for an intimate date night, more so if you fancy bar-hopping after in the area for a nightcap or two. Peek at the tables around you; chances are they would be having the Rib-Eye Steak Frites ($39.80). Served medium-rare, the steak sports a crusty char and tender, juicy meat, and is incredible value for money. It's good enough on its own, but the cap of vigneron (flavoured) butter adds a sheen of lusciousness and depth of flavour. It comes with free flow duck fat fries, prepared using French-imported potatoes, and a small green salad on the side. Pro tip: This cosy space has limited seats, so make reservations ahead. Alternatively, visit their other outlet Les Bouchons Rive Gauche, set along the Singapore River.

For Steak Frites and Inspiring Views at Lunch

Opened by the same guys behind CUT by Wolfgang Puck, Spago too is top notch when it comes to their steaks. It is also a more affordable way to get a taste of CUT's standard of steaks, and in a less stuffy setting. Come by for lunch and get the Grilled USDA Prime Sirloin Steak ($62), which comes with handcut fries and a classic bearnaise sauce. Burpple Tastemaker Fiona Ting describes the meat to be pink and moist in the middle, and incredibly juicy thanks to the well distributed marbling. Add this to panoramic views of Marina Bay Sands' infinity pool and the city skyline, and you've got yourself a treat for both the palate and the eyes.

For a Quintessentially French Experience

Dining at this Duxton Hill bistro is as close to dining in Paris as you'd probably experience here in Singapore — the tables are cramped and you can listen in on your neighbours' conversation without much effort, but hey, that's part of the charm! Settle down to catch up with a friend (leave the airing of dirty laundry for another time) over a plate of Trimmed Entrecote Steak ($34.90 for 190g). Unlike the version at Les Bouchons, this one comes slathered in gravy. The steak itself is cooked to a perfect medium rare, and is served with golden fries and a walnut green salad. If you'd rather not have the meat drenched in their legendary sauce, ask to have the gravy served separately. The steak is automatically portioned into two; the second portion is brought to you halfway through the meal, so pace yourself. Pro tip: Ravenous? Order the 300g XXL portion at $54.90 instead.

For Beef and Bread in the East

Apart from stellar sourdough, this Eastside hotspot also turns out a pretty wonderful steak — perfect for days you feel like both carbs AND protein. Its casual yet buzzy ambience makes it suited both for a laidback date, as well as for a fun catch-up meal with friends. Order the Rangers Valley Striploin (300g, $38), which Burpple Tastemaker Felicia Sim declares to be "juicy, flavorful and tender to bite". This is further complemented by the side of wood-fired Jerusalem artichokes. Don't be put off by the charred exterior — their insides are soft and incredibly sweet. The food here is generally done very well, so you are unlikely to go wrong with whichever other sharing plates you choose to order. Enjoy them all with the Firebake Bread Board ($10), which showcases the best of their made-from-scratch bread, served with salted butter and olive oil on the side.

For Rustic Tuscan Steak to Share

Here's the place to go if you like your food rustic and the ambience laidback. The highlight at this Italian steakhouse is the Bistecca Alla Fiorentina ($188), a giant 1.1kg slab of Australian wagyu cooked over a wood-fired grill. Flavoured simply with olive oil and salt, as is the Tuscan tradition, the beef features a deliciously smoky char, is extremely well marbled and offers great bite. You're unlikely to need much of them, but it's good to know that the steak comes with English and Dijon mustard, steak sauce and salsa verde on the side. The Fiorentina is good to share among two starving beef lovers, or among a modest party of three or four. Gather the family here for the next celebratory occasion.

For Unapologetically Great Steak

What is cheekily named the Break-Up Steak ($42.90, because it is good enough to replace your partner...), is one of the stars here at this Upper Thomson restaurant. Cooked to a smoky char, the hearty piece of ribeye (250g) proves to be tender, juicy and everything a good steak should be. It is served sans sauce, so you can taste all its natural beefiness, elevated by a secret housemade rub concocted by chef-owner John. The sides are equally delicious — sweet, caramelised carrots, earthy mushrooms and creamy, comforting mash nicely round up a perfect meal. If you fancy a sweet ending, order the Ultimate Kaya Toast ($6.50), which features rich and silky homemade kaya sandwiched between wafer-thin slices of bread. Ordering breakfast for dessert is an unconventional trick that will certainly reward.

For Beef Worth Travelling For

Set in the lush surroundings of Selatar Aerospace Park, Wheeler's Estate (by the same guys behind Wheeler's Yard) is far out enough to make a visit seem like a holiday. Prices are on the higher side, but the colonial garden setting is certainly worth paying for — keep this place in mind for special date nights and group celebrations. Meat lovers, go straight for their 120-day grain fed Australian 300g Ribeye ($38) that comes with asparagus, tomato confit and mashed potatoes with mushroom sauce. Cooked over charcoal with wood chips and herbs, the meat has a wonderful woody aroma, which Burpple Tastemaker Justin Teo loves.

For Business-Friendly Steak Lunches

Located on the third level of Swissotel The Stamford, this beautiful restaurant is elegantly decked out and bathed in natural light, which makes it the perfect place for both lunch dates and business meetings. The service is spot-on too. Leave the flipflops at home and dress up for this! A new addition to their revised lunch menu, the Wagyu Beef Cheeks ($29) are braised for 14 hours in port and beef jus, resulting in an amazing depth of flavour and melt-in-the-mouth meat. The dish is also incredible value for money. If you're up for a treat though, try the much talked about USDA Prime Rib Eye ($84, 340g). The 150-day grain fed, wet-aged steak is a classic that's grilled to perfection and absolutely worth the splurge.

For Affordable Steak at Brunch

With exposed ceilings and long wooden benches, this Muslim-owned cafe in Tampines West Community Club oozes casual chic industrial vibes that are perfect for lazy weekend brunches. Bonus points for their friendly staff! Visit for the Butcher's Daughter ($14), a dish that's available only on their weekend brunch menu (9am-5pm). Expect a generous piece of seared sous vide steak cooked to your preferred doneness, served with scrambled eggs and fries on the side. The Burpple community loves how juicy and tasty the meat is; the fluffy eggs and spot-on crispy fries are a happy plus! While you're here, consider ordering the Spiked Muddy Espresso ($6.50) that comes sweetened with gula Melaka.

For Special Occasion Steaks

This classic American steakhouse continues to be top on the list of celebratory restaurants, thanks to a timeless combination of great steaks and stellar service. Be it birthdays, anniversaries or even proposals, the staff will make sure you're well taken care of. The Center-Cut Prime Ribeye ($99, 455g) is the cut to go for — expect a slightly charred, caramelised exterior that gives way to a juicy centre with a good amount of marbling, flavour and texture. It's no wonder it's the Burpple community's favourite! Save space for Morton's Legendary Hot Chocolate Cake ($30), which some Burpplers describe to be one of the best you can have in Singapore.
