Morton’s The Steakhouse offers more than good beef, so head over if your partner is not that big a fan of steaks. Their Center-Cut Filet Mignon (from $80++ for six ounces) is one of the leanest cuts of beef, yet it retains its juices and boasts a smoky taste from the charcoal grill. For a variety in your meal, check out Morton’s Prime Ocean Platters (from $85++). This comprises a mix of appetisers, including their Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes and Oysters Rockefeller. Be sure to end the meal with Morton’s Legendary Hot Chocolate Cake ($30++), which some claim to be the best chocolate lava cake in Singapore!

Fat Cow is a Japanese-inspired steakhouse, and their menu is quite different from the rest of the restaurants on this list. A unique dish here would be Wagyu ‘Somen’ ($45++), which is raw, thinly sliced wagyu that resembles noodles. For something more conventional, stick to the all-time favourite Fatcow Premium Donburi ($98++). This comprises sliced wagyu steak, uni, caviar, foie gras and onsen egg atop a bed of rice. What you will get is an explosion of umami in your mouth, along with the textural contrasts from the tender beef, creamy onsen egg, and velvety uni.
7. Opus Bar & Grill

Opus Bar & Grill’s impressive selection of wines and grilled meat makes it a one-stop destination for wine and steak lovers. The restaurant’s specialty is their Signature 800g Rangers Valley Angus Op Ribs ($120++ for two people). The meat is dry-aged between 14 to 36 days in a custom-made Himalayan salt tile cabinet. This creates an intense, robust flavour, and tenderises the meat, which caramelises beautifully on the grill. While waiting for the chef to prepare your steak, dig into some of their starters. A crowd-pleaser is their Seared Foie Gras ($23++) – pan-fried foie gras served with a tangy kumquat compote, baby carrots and toasted brioche.
