by Evan Mua and Christabel Tan

Everybody loves a good steak — succulent, well-grilled slabs of meat that make you feel like a million bucks. Although steak in Singapore can be pricey, it’s not hard to find affordable steaks that are rich, tender and juicy.

We’ve sussed out 16 places, from casual Western chains to modern steakhouses, offering the best steaks that are S$30 and below. It’s time to pamper your taste buds without breaking the bank.

The Feather Blade

Does the name “Flat Iron” ring a bell? It’s a world-renowned London steakhouse known for its affordable and good steak. The Feather Blade’s founder, an ex-employee there, started the restaurant with a mission to bring good, proper steaks to Singapore.

Feather Blade uses a lesser-seen “Flat Iron” shoulder cut and charges just S$22 for 200g for tender and beautifully charred steak. You can add on S$2 for special sauces like Sichuan Peppercorn and Wasabi Cream.

Besides their signature steaks, Feather Blade’s menu also includes a Burger (S$21), as well as the lunch-exclusive Shabu Don (S$12), shabu-cut feather blade dressed in sukiyaki sauce with an onsen egg.

Hamburg Steak Keisuke

Do you know what’s better than an affordable steak? An affordable steak with a sprawling buffet spread. Yes, this steak comes with a free buffet that not only has a salad bar but also unlimited eggs.

They’re not just the standard Keisuke soft-boiled eggs either. We’re talking all kinds of eggs — from creamy scrambled eggs to fluffy tamagoyaki. However, the highlight is definitely their Prime Beef Hamburg Steak Set (S$20.90) which comes tender and nicely charred on the outside.

Alternatively, cheese lovers should go for the Triple Cheese Prime Hamburg Steak Set (S$22.90). Cut it open and just enjoy as you watch the creamy molten cheese flow out. The blend of parmesan, mozzarella and cheddar helps to accentuate the beefy richness even more.

Bizen Okayama β€’ Wagyu Steakhouse

Wagyu has become such a buzzword nowadays — the breed of cow is synonymous with top-quality steak and for good reason. However, not all Wagyu is created equal, especially that of the wallet-friendly variety.

Run by the folks behind Aston’s, Singapore’s most popular budget steakhouse, Bizen does what Aston’s does but with Japanese Wagyu. They serve some of the juiciest but most affordable wagyu steaks in Singapore.

You can find almost any cut of steak you want on Bizen’s menu, from the fattier chuck roll to the premium ribeye. Cuts can be ordered in petite portions of 150g — a Round steak can be had for just S$20.50, with two sides.

Stirling Steaks

When it comes to affordable steaks in Singapore, no one can beat Stirling Steaks. We’re talking as low as S$9.90 for 150g of Hanger Steak and a S$1.50 top-up for Paprika Fries. Even mall franchises don’t sell steaks this cheap.

If you want a more premium cut then it’s S$31.40 for 250g of Striploin. You can even go for a whopping 500g of Angus T-Bone for S$53.50. More importantly, everything here is charcoal-grilled and topped with avocado butter.

But that’s only if you pay for it a la carte. Big eaters can indulge in all the striploin or rump they want from just S$32++ with Stirling Steaks’ special free-flow Steak Buffet.

iSTEAKS Diner

Steak lovers shouldn’t need an introduction to iSTEAKS Diner, purveyors of the most reasonably-priced steaks in Singapore. What started out as a humble hawker stall has blossomed into a valuable brand with multiple outlets.

Up until a few years ago, affordable steakhouses were rare. iSTEAKS has always been one of the top choices for solid, affordable steaks — you can get 200g of NZ Striploin at just S$22.50.

But even their more premium cuts like the char-grilled NZ Silver Fern Ribeye and 100 days grain-fed Australian Ribeye only carry a price tag of S$25.50 and S$29 for a 200g cut respectively All steaks even come with two complementary sides that can be chosen from the extensive menu. Both filling and value-for-money.

Serving its customers with the motto “Steaks For The People”, halal steakhouse Picanhas’ specialises in the pincanha, a unique rump cap made popular in Brazil.

There are only two proper steak mains on the main menu — the Brazilian and Japanese-inspired Picanha Don (S$20) and the Queen of Steak (S$24). Each slab of steak is dry brined, slow-cooked and then finished on the stove with binchotan butter, making it immensely rich and succulent.

Picanha possesses a robust beefy flavour reminscent of sirloin, and is best paired with Sides (S$7) like the Cream Spinach or double-cooked Potatoes with sriracha mayo.

UNO Beef House

S$17 is surely one of the lowest you can find for a good Ribeye. And where better to spend that S$17 than at one of the most established places for affordable steak in Singapore — UNO Beef House. Despite having moved to a new location in late June 2022, it remains one of Toa Payoh‘s hottest stalls with snaking queues.

It’s an open secret that you must order their Black Pepper Ribeye Steak when you’re here. They know that a steak doesn’t have to be too complicated — their sauce is a simple beef jus sauced with black pepper for a bit of zing, so the steak’s flavours can shine.

The cherry on top is a cheesy, crispy potato croquette that’s unique to them. But if you’re feeling moreish, you can even get other cuts like tenderloin for S$20. The prices are all kept very reasonable here.

Armoury Craft Beer and Steak

Armoury is as unpretentious as Steakhouses come. It’s a simple meat-focused place that promises a good time with its fun selection of craft beers, as compared to fancy wine pairings.

If you’re in the mood for an affordable wagyu steak, visit during lunch for Armoury’s 220g Wagyu Striploin (S$22) or Wagyu Ribeye (S$26). You can even request for breakfast sides like fried eggs and tater tots on weekends.

However, Armoury’s trademark menu item has to be their 90 minute Steak Buffet (S$33 for adults on Tue, Sat & Sun) It comes with free-flow Australian grass-fed steaks along with other meats like Grilled Pork Belly and Grilled Shabu Beef. Even better, drop by during their daily lunch promo and enjoy the buffet at S$60 for 2 pax.

Meet 4 Meat

Don’t let the casual coffeeshop setting at Meet 4 Meat fool you. Run by a former Wooloomooloo Steakhouse chef, the stall is known for dishing out gourmet meats at affordable prices.

Meet 4 Meat’s biggest selling point may be their Beef Wellington (S$30.50), but the grass-fed Argentina Ribeye (S$25.50) and Australian Tenderloin (S$26.50) are not to be overlooked.

If you’re dining with a friend (or two), order the Australian Bone-In Ribeye (S$65) to share. The hefty and tender 800g grass-fed steak is seared over charcoal, oven-roasted till medium rare, and glazed with a flavourful brown sauce. Delish.

Braseiro Restaurant

Braseiro’s concept is quite interesting — they specialise in authentic French steak frites (steak and yes, free-flow fries) at wallet-friendly prices.

A 200g EntrecΓ΄te, or ribeye steak at Braseiro comes with a price tag of S$23.90. But you can choose to upsize and get a 300g or 400g portion at S$28.90 and S$33.90 respectively.

Essentially, you get a juicy slab of beef, unlimited fries, and salad for under S$25. Considering how other steakhouses offering free-flow fries tend to have higher price points, this is definitely a place worth bookmarking.

Smokin’ Joe

Smokin’ Joe may be located in a hawker centre, but these guys are passionate about steaks and grilled meats. Aside from being known for its impressive S$10k Spanish restaurant-grade Josper oven, the stall was even selected as one of the hawkers under Makansutra’s upcoming Urban Hawker food hall in New York.

You can get pretty high-quality cuts of signature Smokin’ Joe steak, like the AU Ribeye 200g and AU Tenderloin 180g at just S$19 and S$26 respectively. Really, how many places can you find steak painstakingly seared over a charcoal flame at these prices?

They also offer a Wagyu Cheesy Hamburger Steak (S$16) if you want something more affordable. It may not be a proper steak per se, but a 160g wagyu patty for S$16 ain’t a bad price at all.
