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!
Evoking the same archetypal atmosphere of a classic high-end steakhouse in New York—from their mahogany furnishings to the sounds of Sinatra playing in the background—Morton’s The Steakhouse beautifully encapsulates the classic, speakeasy-style of American fine dining.
This steakhouse juggernaut in Mandarin Oriental impresses in more ways than one, from the impeccable standards upheld by their service staff to their array of phenomenal meat and seafood offerings. Every detail—the honest selection of succulent, wet-aged USDA Prime steaks, fresh seafood, extensive and award-winning wine list etc—attributes to why we absolutely love dining here.
The signature orders here include the wet-aged Prime Ribeye Steak and the colossal 48-ounce Porterhouse but for non-meat eaters, they also serve up a solid range of fresh seafood such as Maine Lobster, Honey-Balsamic Glazed Ora King Salmon and the must-try Seared Cod with Romesco Sauce that you can opt to have off their seasonal menu.
It’s easy to feel intimidated by a high-end restaurant like Morton’s especially so in all its classy, mahogany-clad glory, but truly, there is so much more to this steakhouse institution that goes far beyond just being a destination for business meetings and special occasions. With their stellar line-up of house classics coupled with their ever-changing seasonal menu, there’s bound to be something to tickle even the most discerning of palates.
