Giant meat platters at your next meat-up
I support sharing food with friends as a social activity in theory, but in practice, I’m too protective over the food on my plate to offer a bite. But with these platters that weigh a couple of kilos or more, I suppose I won’t mind splitting a meal. Meat lovers, call your squad down to feast on these 10 giant meat platters for a monstrously good time.
1. Chops Grill & Sides
Chops! XXL Platter ($59.90) by Chops Grill & Sides comes with two trays loaded with a hefty 3kg worth of food, including six meats and ten sides. Each platter feeds six to eight people. The flavourful grilled cajun chicken, succulent Australian grain-fed ribeye steak, and pan-fried Norwegian salmon are standouts among the selection of meats.
Address: 727 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6, Broadway Coffeeshop, Singapore 560727
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 10pm
2. Wicked Grill
Wicked Grill may soon be your holy grill. Three slabs of 200g Australian striploin steaks are served on their Regular Platter ($49.80+ for three to four people), which already makes this rather value for money. Add to that three slabs of grilled chicken, three dory fillets, spicy wing drumlets, plus a mountain of fries and onion rings, and you’ll get an immensely satisfying meal. There’s also a Premium Platter ($69.80++) that has an additional half rack of St. Louis pork ribs. If steak is your one true love, visit the restaurant on weekends for their Steak Buffet ($29.80).

3. FYR Cycene Ond Drinc
FYR Cycene Ond Drinc has a variety of platters with different combinations of meat. The most affordable option is one with Baby Back Lamb Ribs, Ribeye, and Pork Collar ($68++), meant to be shared among two to three people. For passionate meat lovers, the monstrous The Caveman Supper ($150++) is sure to be met with a chorus of wows when served, especially when it comes with a spectacular tableside blowtorching show. It includes six types of meat and roasted vegetables. We particularly like the bone marrow with tender melting flesh, and deep-fried tripe.

4. Hungry Heroes
Here’s a comforting thought: even Superman has probably experienced an inopportune, embarrassingly loud stomach growl before. There’s no better place for him to get some grub than at Hungry Heroes, which looks like it could be the Singapore HQ for familiar comic book heroes. Fuel up on Nice To Meat You ($56+), which is a platter of sirloin, chicken leg, pulled pork, and pork ribs best for teams of three to four. The Steakout ($108+) should feed bigger parties well.

Head to Charco’s Chicken and Grill for a feast that’s easy on the wallet. Their most extensive platter, Mega Platter ($73.50), is relatively affordable and includes beef ribs, lamb ribs, and lamb chops among other meats and sides. If you feel like having a simple meal, this halal-certified stall also does some flavourful Portuguese chicken ($7.40 for a quarter, $10.40 for half a chicken).

Morganfield’s meaty and glossy slabs of ribs are genuinely drool-worthy. They offer three platters starting from $98.90++ for The Carnivore platter. This comes with a full slab of ribs and half a chicken to be shared among three or four. If you’re a ribs fanatic, get three half-slabs of ribs on Morgan’s Rib Sampl3R ($122.90++). Choose from classic hickory BBQ ribs, garlic BBQ spare ribs, spicy Asian BBQ spare ribs or smoked peppercorn spare ribs. The meat is fall-off-the-bone tender and extremely juicy.
7. Dallas Restaurant
Serving American food in large portions, Dallas Restaurant is a place for comfort fare that satisfies both your taste buds and appetite. The larger portion of their signature Meat Platter ($70++ for two people, $130++ for four people) has four grilled lamb cutlets best paired with the accompanying side of sweetened mint jello, a full slab of tangy berry-glazed pork ribs, half a roasted chicken, and a whopping 300g prime rib steak. An unassuming star is hidden under all that meat – skin-on potato chunks twice-cooked in beef fat drippings. These are fragrant and crisp with a fluffy centre. Dallas also has an Unlimited Prime Rib Steak Buffet ($45++) on weekends.

8. Mela Food Junction
Mela Food Junction’s Platter ($120 for four people, additional serving +$30) is said to feed four mouths, but we reckon it’ll leave at least six bellies satisfied. The platter comes with four types of meat, three types of seafood, and cajun fries and mesclun salad as sides. Remember to place a pre-order for your platter at least two days in advance via Whatsapp, and check their Facebook page for their opening hours for the day.

For something besides the usual roasts, Brozeit’s Brozeit Platter ($98++ for four to five people) is one to consider. The star of this platter is the pork knuckle with its crackling skin and meat so tender you can pull it apart with forks. It is served with honey Bavarian pork ribs, a selection of sausages, and two sides of your choice. Wash down the meats with a mug or two of German beer!
