This little hole-in-the-wall steakhouse occupies a small corner in the middle of Singapore’s city area. Despite its unassuming appearance, it is almost impossible to get tables here on the weekends, and it is not hard to see why. With its Classic Sirloin ($16.90) at pocket-friendly prices and hearty Love-Me Tenderloin at a very reasonable $29.90, Steakout’s no-frills steaks are hard to resist.

2. Le Steak by Chef Amri
Le Steak stands out among other Singapore steak restaurants for its generous servings and affordable price. Steaks here are generally cheap with the PS Sirloin ($18.90) and Ribeye ($21.90) costing around $20, which is an unbelievably good deal for steak. What’s even better? Prices here are nett.

3. Culina Bistro
Ever tried personalising your own steak? Well, that is something you can do here at Culina Bistro, where you can select a raw meat and have it cooked for a prep fee of $15. Depending on the cut of meat, prices can range from $4.80/100g to $60/100g, so even if you’re on a slighty tighter budget you’ll be able to find a great cut for a good price here.

4. Meat n’ Chill
Most steaks weigh around 200g-300g, but at Meat n’ Chill, you can get a whopping 500g New York Strip for $27. Now that is some cheap steak! Smoky and mild, the meats here are your definition of American diner comfort food. Try the 250g Red Neck Soo-veed Rib-eye Steak ($27) if you prefer a tender cut.

L’Entrecote is proof that when it comes to food, quality beats quantity. The quaint bistro only has one main course on its menu - steak, of course - and an amazingly juicy and well-flavoured one at that. L’Entrecote prides itself for serving one of the best Steak Frites (with free flow fries!) in Singapore - they even serve half of the steak to you first and the rest midway through your meal so that it does not turn cold. Give it a taste and you’ll be understand why the queues are perpetual in front of the restaurant.

6. Huber’s Butchery/Bistro
Huber’s is the carnivore’s version of garden to table. Being a butchery as well, you can be more than assured that Huber’s Butchery/Bistro’s meat is 110% fresh and high-quality. Because it also supplies meat to other restaurants, the turnover for Huber’s steaks is extremely high, guaranteeing that its US Prime Steak ($28) has quality that is hard to find elsewhere.

7. Luke’s Chophouse & Oyster Bar
Luke’s Chophouse doesn’t claim to have the fanciest and most extensive menu in town, but you can be sure that it knows its steaks well. While this upscale restaurant’s regular menu is on the pricey side – with its 300g Luke’s Bone-in Tenderloin coming in at $72, and 400g USDA Prime Ribeye at $87 – it offers an enticing lunch deal, where you can get Steaks and Fries ($35) at a more affordable rate.

8. Les Bouchons
Steak may be the star of the show, but we all know that the sides, like the fries and salad, are pretty important too. At Les Bouchons, apart from its Grilled Rib Eye Steak With “Vigneron” Butter ($38.80), you’ll be glad to know that it offers free-flow house-made fries and salad! The steak might be on the smaller side, but its amazing flavour packs a punch.
