It’s a new year, and you’re trying to stick to your New Year resolution of eating clean. Sure, many of us are working on reducing our meat intake, but even for the most moderate of meat-eaters, there comes a time when we are overcome by an insatiable gnawing need to get our hands on a thick, juicy slab of steak. It’s one of life’s simplest pleasures, and one that many of us are unable (and unwilling) to give up.
However, dining at steakhouses can be an expensive affair, with limited portion sizes, substandard preparation, and unappetising steak cuts further compounding existing reluctance to placate said whims. Thankfully, there are still places in Singapore that serve good quality steaks without costing you an arm and a leg. You just need to know where to find them.
To alleviate that quandary, here is a list of 20 places to get affordable steaks for under S$30. Whether you’re looking for budget bulking options, or just want to luxuriate in some bargain steak binging, these places are bound to raise the steaks on a modern steakhouse experience!
Craving for a taste of some of the world’s most highly acclaimed eateries, restaurants and cafes, but short of the expenses to travel the distance? We feel you.

Whether you are in the mood for a comforting cup of joe, hearty South-Korean stews, or even an opulent dry-aged steak from one of USA’s top restaurants, you can now spare a couple of hours to travel across our island to satiate your desired cravings.
Savour the best that the world has to offer right at your doorstep with our list of 26 international F&B brands in Singapore to visit if you can’t travel overseas.
Few things come close to the sheer majesty that sinking one’s teeth into a quality steak entails; the flavour of buttery beefiness oozing all over the tongue, enveloped by a smoky flavour and brought to life with speckles of sea salt. Cooked perfectly, be it roasted and finished under a broiler, grilled or even sous vide, a properly cooked steak can be life-changing. Period.
A good steak will always reign supreme among the food-obsessed and is almost always money well spent. Whether you’re looking to spend lavishly, indulging in the crème de la crème of beefy divinity or simply a more economically-friendly alternative just to curb your cravings, here is our list of 18 places in Singapore to get a very, very good steak.
One of the newer additions to Sunshine Plaza’s slew of hidden food gems is Steakville, a humble hole-in-a-wall that serves up some seriously good steak as well as a myriad of other enticing mains.
Striving to bring the “farm to table” dining experience, Steakville sources their beef from specific farms, ensuring that only the best quality beef is chosen. Costing only S$15 for a hanger steak, we were beyond impressed given the quality of it. On top of their food, they also serve solid artisanal cuppas as well as an array of cocktails.

If the words, USDA Black Angus Beef, dry-aged and tender are among your top few trigger words then great news for all you steak and meat aficionados, because Wolfgang’s Steakhouse is opening its first outlet in Singapore!
Making its debut on 14 October 2017, this New York institution will open its doors at the InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay.
Wolfgang’s Steakhouse is famed for serving tender cuts of prime USDA Black Angus beef, which are dry-aged for about a month in their in-house proprietary ageing room and cooked using traditional methods.
Opus Bar & Grill is an intimate and modern grill restaurant which also happens to serve some of the best steaks in Singapore. Located on the ground floor of Hilton Singapore, the restaurant’s secret recipe in divine meat lies in its specially commissioned Himalayan salt tile dry-aging cabinet, charcoal grill, and the usage of only excellent prime cuts and high-quality ingredients.
Executive Chef Vijay and his culinary team mean business when it comes to meat. From the way that each individual cut is treated—from the aging process right down to the actual cooking—we know that we can always depend on them for a quality steak feast every time!
We went down recently to sample the new menu and we can’t wait to share our dining experiences with you! With any order of Opus steak, enjoy 2-hour free-flow red, white and sparkling wines from 7pm to 9pm (Sundays to Thursdays) and 50% off on selected wine by the bottle (Frdays & Saturdays).
