WARNING: Vegetarians, avert your eyes.
This list is for those who love all things meat. For those who love biting into a juicy, tender, perfectly seasoned, crusty on the outside, medium-rare on the inside, steaming, hot off the grill, cut of meat. I’m talking about red meat in particular, but any good meat-centric establishment will certainly offer other variations of our meaty friends – often in the form of pork, lamb and chicken.
Personally, I love meat. Since the dawn of mankind we have been eating it to survive. So now that you no longer have to personally hunt your meat to live, let’s leave it up to some of the best and brightest chefs and restaurants around Singapore to help us get our protein fix.
In no particular order, the meatiest places around Singapore for the carnivore in you.
One cannot mention the most meat-centric places in Singapore without mentioning Brazilian churrasacia. With three locations around Singapore, Carnivore is one of the better known and enjoyed Brazilian churrasacia establishments on the island.
For $50 you can enjoy a salad bar and all the juicy, steaming, cut right at your table, meat options your heart and bloated stomach desire. The tender rump steak was my personal favorite cut, but the beauty of the place is with the flip of a little green card, you can eat as much and choose what you would like. I only made it through 4 different cuts of meat – it’s not for the faint of heart.
Another all you can eat Brazilian barbeque establishment, Carne and Caipirinha will leave you stuffed to the brim. They serve charcoal fire-roasted beef, pork sausages, chicken and lamb right at your table.
Carne and Caipirinha was created by the same team as Carnivore, so you can ensure they know what they are doing on the Brazilian meat front. Again, come hungry!
CUT, by Wolfgang Puck is well known for being a celebrity chef restaurant and subsequently one of Singapore’s best and most talked about steak houses. CUT is a popular choice for business dinners and entertaining out of town guests or clients (especically if you are dining on an expen$e account).
The overall concept of the restaurant is classic American steak house, with an array of USDA prime beef offerings to match. If you are in the mood to indulge your wallet for brick grilled USDA steaks and classic American sides, such as creamed spinach, check out CUT.
Located inside Suntec City’s new ‘Eat at Seven’ concept – seven top Japanese food specialists and restaurants located together just off of the Sky Garden – is Nikunohi, a wagyu lovers paradise.
Here they serve A5-grade Kuroge wagyu beef and twenty three different types of beef patties for you to grill at your table. With the original flagship restaurant located in Tokyo, this is currently their first and only overseas branch. Nikunohi also features daily specials such as 30% off a kiwami plate or kids dine free, depending on the day of the week. High quality wagyu beef at affordable prices – yes, please.
A true meat lovers paradise. At Huber’s you can really double, or even triple, down on your meat. Enjoy a simple, yet high quality lunch at their bistro cafe and then stroll the aisles of their endless fresh meat products inside at the butcher.
Their bistro offers an array of juicy and flavorful sausages, or you can get a classic roast beef sandwich. Inside the store, take away just about any and every cut of meat you can imagine for that nights dinner – and for dinner the rest of the week. Huber’s lovers take note: they have recently moved into a bigger and badder location just a stones throw away from their old home on Dempsey Road.
Burnt Ends is another barbecue restaurant that will set you back in the cost department, but I will contest to the fact that the food and the wait time is worth it. Under the direction of Aussie chef Dave Pyntrun, Burnt Ends has been receiving a slew of accolades for their beef and cooking techniques.
At Burnt Ends they use apple and almond wood in their impressive looking four tone, dual open flame oven, which can be seen from the row of counter-only seating. The menu is written daily, but you can’t go wrong with anything beefy here.
Moving on from Brazilian, American, Australian and Japanese meat institutions, Bistecca takes an Italian approach to their beef. Florentine-style to be exact. Here they keep their meats simple with a basic salt and pepper seasoning and cooked over charcoal.
At Bistecca you can tell they are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their beef, top to bottom. The beef itself is exclusive F1 Wagyu, pasture raised and organic-fed in Australia, while the staff take their time to explain the different cuts, marbling grades and make suggestions per your liking.
SKIRT, inside the W Hotel over at Sentosa, is another high-quality, high-end, steak house nestled inside a top hotel in Singapore. What they are most well-known for is their dry aged beef, proudly on display inside their glass drying cabinets, and their fire grill.
The meat offerings at SKIRT are abundant in choice (bone-in strip, skirt steak, lamb, venison), and even more impressive in their care and hot-off-the-grill execution of the dishes.
You can’t have a meat-lovers list without one Korean barbecue offering. Personally, I love a good filet and a glass of vino, but sometimes I’m looking for something more casual and fitting for a group. I’ve had some of my most fun dinners in Singapore over charcole grilling our own selection of meats at our table and sharing a few Hite’s and bottles (multiple) of Soju. I digress…
Ssikkek BBQ is the first place in Singapore to serve Korean BBQ, buffet-style. If you are a meat lover and looking to seriously indulge for a modest price, spend a few hours at Ssikkek.
One of the more casual places on the list, Carvers & Co. has a nice selection of meat sandwiches and dinner entrees. On their brunch menu you can indulge in a cheeseburger (with bacon, for good measure), a pork belly sandwich or a hearty steak sandwich, complete with generous slices of bacon and a fried egg.
Their dinner menu offers options of Wagyu beef, a roast beef platter and a bone-in prime rib to satisfy your meaty cravings – all without shelling out fine-dining and steak house prices.

5 new meat restaurants for carnivores in Singapore
We've predicted that the meat movement will continue to be a huge trend this year, and we are heaps excited that Bali barbecue restaurant Naughty Nuri's is bringing their famous barbecued pork ribs to Capitol Piazza later this month. But in the meantime, here are five other carnivorous places to satisfy your animalistic cravings.
This tucked-away spot behind Aussie grill restaurant Boomerang, all decked (oops) out in string lights, picnic tables, an open kitchen and a giant smoker, is an indie barbecue haven for those who like feeling like they're "in-the-know." Besides soaking up smokey-cool vibes, you'll want to fill your plate with Texan-style highlights like beef brisket ($16/100g), tender pulled pork ($9/100g) and all-American sides like brisket beans ($9), mac & cheese ($9) and kale salad ($9 or $18 with meat).
Embracing nose-to-tail dining with a vengence, Jean-Philippe (JP) Patruno of Bomba and Una fame whips up inventive plates of offal that are usually discarded in European fine dining cuisine. We recommend gems like the sauteed ducks' hearts on toast ($10), soaked 24 hours in vinegar to tenderize the meat; the octopus wrapped in a fine layer of lardo ($28), the Iberico jowls ($28) and the bone marrow ($22 for two). A word of caution: the Dehesa platter of cold meats ($25), with pig head, pig ear, fifi pate and dry, cured sausage is a dish with an acquired taste.
Launching its first Singapore outlet at Plaza Singapura, fans of Korean barbecue will love the chain's signature Korean galmaegisal, or pork skirt. The succulent flesh located between the ribs and the belly of the pig is marinated with Korean spices, grilled using the restaurant's "circle grilling technique" and served with spicy dipping sauces. Also on the menu are a selection of prime pork and beef cuts, melted cheese on the grill and traditional Korean stews.
The restaurant's new outlet at Katong doesn't stray too far from its flagship at Vivocity but at least it features a slightly more chilled-out vibe. There are the usual mixed grill platters, grilled meats served off the broiler, lamb and pork chops, hearty burgers and sandwiches, and also a selection of pasta and seafood dishes if you're not up for a steak.
Wahhhh so delicious!
Ah fresh meat!
