Don’t miss the indulgent mac and cheese. #01-05 Pan Pacific Serviced Suites, 96 Somerset Rd.
Dim lighting, earth tone furnishings and croc print-inspired chocolate chairs give this Italian steakhouse a distinctly sexy feel; a great date venue. In case the name wasn’t a dead giveaway, it’s all about the meat here, specifically wagyu, so forgo their pastas in favor of their signature Fiorentina—a deliciously smoky char-grilled 1-1.2kg T-bone steak of marble score six Aussie wagyu, big enough to be shared by three or four people. 25 Mohamed Sultan Rd.

Cocktails are also amazing. If you’re looking for an classic meat extravaganza, this is the ultimate. #B1-71 Galleria Level, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, 2 Bayfront Ave.
It has been the year of casual barbecue in Singapore, but when it comes to classic, carnivorous glamour, this American steakhouse stalwart is still a sure bet, especially since it lightened things up after its recent-ish renovation. Have a “Mortini” or two at their brass-colored island bar before heading in for a big, fat juicy slab of steak the size of a baseball mitt. The stars are the onion bread and the USDA prime ribeye, as well as desserts like the hot chocolate cake. 4/F Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, 5 Raffles Ave.
The focus at Skirt may be squarely on premium meats grilled to perfection on the centrepiece South American parilla grill, but this ain’t no Old World steakhouse.

Black Angus, various wagyus and other delectable meats aside, there is also sustainably sourced seafood, duck confit, lamb shank and other meaty delights, not to mention some lovely starters like ceviche and crab salad. W Singapore – Sentosa Cove, 21 Ocean Way.
