You have a bevy of cuts to choose from, among which are the Japanese pure-bred Wagyu sirloin and ribeye from the Kyoto Prefecture. Simply grilled with a little seasoning, the beefy flavours and marbling shine through with every bite.
One sign of a good steakhouse is the variety of cuts on the menu and here, you also have grass-fed steaks from Argentina and grain-fed steaks from Australia. Enjoy these with your choice of sides such as French fries infused with white truffle oil, cauliflower steak spiced up with togarashi aioli, and classic French mashed potatoes.

2. Wolfgang’s Steakhouse
Owner Wolfgang Zwiener, a former employee of Michelin-starred Peter Luger Steakhouse in Brooklyn, started his first restaurant in 2004. To date he has over 20 steakhouses all over the world, including the outpost at InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay. And just like how it’s done at his former workplace, all the porterhouse cuts are served on a hot plate bubbling with melted butter. There is also a notable variety of seafood offerings, such as grilled king salmon, crab cakes, lobster and more. Do save some stomach space for all-American desserts like the hot fudge sundae, New York-style cheesecake, apple strudel and an assortment of pies.

The stalwart steakhouse has continuously won fans over with its exceptional steaks from Japan, Australia and the US. One of the crowd favourites is still the massive grain fed long-bone ribeye Tomahawk steak, cooked over a charcoal grill to achieve an impossibly tender meat with a delicious smoky finish. It’s even better when you have it with house-made accompaniments, such as red wine sauce, Bedrock chilli oil, wholegrain whisky mustard and classic bearnaise.

4. Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse
This Italian steakhouse is as well-regarded for its stylish interiors as it is for the meat-selection ranging from Miyazaki A4 Wagyu striploin to grain-fed Bistecca alla Fiorentina, which is also the star item. It is a thick-cut, char-grilled T-bone steak that’s perfect for sharing. There are, of course, other Italian dishes to savour, such as antipasti and pasta as well as seafood options that are sustainably sourced. Besides beef, there are other protein alternatives, including pork chop, the rack of lamb and roast chicken. Their list of wines is also extensive; be sure to order a glass or two to complete the experience.

Argentina is famous for its steaks and thankfully there's a place where enthusiasts in Singapore can enjoy a proper serving of Argentinean beef. Located in Amoy Street, the Latin American-inspired restaurant is popular for its lunch sets that can be enjoyed in either two or three courses. Steaks here are the grass-fed variety, something that Argentina is well known for, and cooked on the wood-and-charcoal-fired parilla. The restaurant attracts regular visitors who are equally appreciative of its friendly service and cosy ambience so it comes as no surprise that Bochinche remains the go-to choice for those craving a proper piece of steak.

6. Burnt Ends
Securing a reservation at this widely popular restaurant may be a challenge but having a memorable gastronomic experience here is almost assured. The show-stopping item of this modern Australian restaurant, which has been winning fans since 2013, is the custom-made grills. The menu changes daily but the beef tenderloin and Blackmore’s cube roll are definite must-try items that will have you craving a return. Over the past year, the restaurant has also unveiled its bakery arm offering various types of bread, scones, tarts, cinnamon rolls and the extremely popular doughnuts. Just like how it is with restaurant reservations, effort is required when nabbing a box of those doughnuts—but it is well worth it.

There's a variety of dessert options, including a decadent Valrhona chocolate souffle that’s good for two to three people.
