Fat Belly Social Steakhouse: Steak, Sides, Shared, Socially
Eating is largely a communal affair amongst Singaporeans who are used to sharing everything that is on the table, whether it is at the hawker centre or at home. Even when it comes to eating a formal western meal, I am sure most of us would order a starter, mains and dessert but end up trying everybody else's dishes. I think it is partly due to our kiasu mentality as no one wants to miss out on something on our friends plate which may be more amazing than what we ordered!
Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse: 13th Best Steakhouse in the World!
When you mention "steakhouse", what I immediately think of is the typical American steakhouse with dim lighting, dark wood furniture, booth seats and of course, a menu that screams Beef, Beef, and more Beef!
Keef the Beef: A Hole in the Wall Place for Excellent Steaks!
You don't need fancy white tablecloths and a big hole in the pocket in order to experience a seriously good steak (at least not a BIG hole). In fact, some of the best steaks I ever had where at a friend's BBQ or even in my own home! All you need is to get your hands on a great piece of meat and know how to cook it properly!
The Ranch by Astons: Aged USDA Prime Beef Steaks, competitively priced!
The Ranch offers high end steaks at competitive prices. The service might not be as flash as what you get at an American run steakhouse like CUT, but if you are just after a piece of aged USDA prime steak, this is the place you can get it at a competitive price.
WAKANUI Grill Dining: Tokyo Style Steakhouse, New Zealand Beef
When I first heard about the Wakanui being a Japanese steakhouse, I immediately assumed that "Wakanui" was a Japanese name. It turns out that it isn't Japanese word at all! It is, in fact, Maori for "Canoe way" and it is a region in the South Island of New Zealand where the beef is produced.
About four years ago, I picked up a book from the library that was simply titled "Steak". There are very few single words that have the power to command my immediate attention and this is one of them. The other is "Monnnnng!" which is what my Teochew name sounds like when it is uttered by my wife in an ascending tone. It usually signals an ominous change in the weather pattern which requires a drastic course correction.
Kobe beef was one of the foods on my list of things to eat before I leave this mortal sphere. There has been a ban on the export of Kobe Beef for many years such that the only way to experience it is to actually travel to Kobe eat it or have a really good […]
There are two things about Skirt that I am very excited about. Firstly, they are the first steak house in Singapore who are aging their own beef and secondly, they are one of the few to use an Argentinian Parilla to grill their meat! In a market where the competition for the patronage of serious […]
Ruth’s Chris Steak House: Dependable, Straightfoward and Awfully Good Steaks!
Fans of Ruth’s Chris Steak House will be very happy to know that they have opened their first branch in Singapore! I have been a fan since 1995 when I first visited Ruth’s Chris in San Francisco right after I graduated from Med School. It was a very special occasion for Rockett girl and I […]
CUT by Wolfgang Puck: Superb Steakhouse Experience!
Anyone who has been to the US would know what a typical American Steakhouse is like. Dark wood furniture, heavy steak knives, charred steaks typically served with creamed spinach and thick cut fries, Maryland crabcakes for starters and Caesar Salads tossed at your table. Well, the modern Steakhouses seem to be changing all that. I […]
