What is it about steak? Why, wherever you go in the world, do you see ‘steakhouses’ but never ‘lambhouses’ or ‘porkhouses’ or even ‘chickenhouses’? Juicy, succulent and cross-hatched from the grill, nothing quite matches the taste of a well-chosen and well-cooked steak. It’s the perfect choice for everything from romantic meals to tuck-ins with friends. From rumps to ribeyes, fillet steaks to sirloins, we’ve rounded up the top 5 steaks in Singapore.
Ruth’s Chris Steak House
With prime beef brought in from the best farms in the USA, it’s no surprise that tenderness is a given when you order steak at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. There’s no fancy messing around with the meat here, just good old home-country cooking and generous American portions. So no one goes hungry! Signature steaks are the 11-ounce Filet Mignon or the slightly smaller Petite Filet while the house favourite is Filet Oscar. Here your steak comes topped with crab, asparagus and a béarnaise sauce. Also on the menu are T-bones and ribeyes and a whole load of tempting sides.
L’Entrecôte The Steak and Fries Bistro
With a menu straight from the heart of Paris, this bistro likes to keep things simple. There is only one main course, the unchangeable Plat du Jour. The signature Steak Frites comes covered in the restaurant’s secret sauce and garnished with seasoned fries and seasonal salad. There’s no shortage of choice when it comes to starters and desserts. Keep the French theme going with French Onion Soup and for dessert you can’t beat the salted caramel lava cake.
You might not expect to see an Italian restaurant serving up one of the top 5 steaks in Singapore but Zafferano makes the cut. It’s definitely one for special occasions with its huge Fiorentina alla brace being a type of T-bone steak that combines tenderloin and short-loin cuts. The steak used is from Australia, a top of the range Black Angus and it comes with oyster mushrooms, shallots and bone marrow.
The name says it all! This restaurant brings the best cuts of steak from Australia, Japan, the USA, the UK and even Argentina – anywhere that knows about steak. Then Steakville cooks the steak perfectly. If you can’t make up your mind which steak to have, then why not indulge yourself with the beef platter. Hanger, ribeye and Wagyu steaks all on one plate!
Harry’s Bar & Dining
With over a dozen branches across Singapore, you’re never far from a decent steak when you order from Harry’s Bar & Dining. Topping its menu is an Angus Sirloin Steak served with a fried egg, fries and a sauce while a sirloin steak sandwich definitely fills the gap at lunchtime. If you have the room, a New York Cheesecake is the perfect dessert.
