When we think of good steaks, we think of tender, juicy texture and flavourful, beefy taste. And certainly, they aren’t just some average pieces of meat.
Steaks can come from various cuts of beef — ribeye, T-bone, filet mignon, sirloin, etc. — and each of them takes on different tenderness. Typically grilled, pan-seared, or smoked, they can be done to any level from blue rare to well done.
Despite being prepared in seemingly ordinary ways, there is something so appealing about steaks that makes them one of the best-tasting food in the world. And if you are wondering what the secret is, you’ve come to the right place.
While we can continue raving about how impeccable steaks are, it is always better to experience the meaty goodness yourself. With that being said, check out the best restaurants in Singapore which serve steaks that are worth dying for.
