Where to Eat in Singapore This Week: Fat Belly Social Steakhouse, Cut by Wolfgang Puck, The Feather Blade, Kinki, Ash & Elm
It’s the perfect week for beef lovers to dine out, as there are a number of popular restaurants serving up a variety of mouth-watering beef cuts. New on the dining scene is Fat Belly Social Steakhouse, whose chefs showcase lesser-known cuts such as flat iron and zabuton that are no less delicious than your usual ribeye or filet mignon.
Why stop there when you can also head to The Feather Blade and Kinki, which have re-opened their doors to serve up their signature beef creations and more. Don’t forget about Cut by Wolfgang Puck, as the team has refreshed their early dinner menu so you can indulge in the chefs’ greatest hits before 7pm.
End the week with bubbly and fresh seafood at Ash & Elm, offering an enticing revamped weekend champagne brunch.
1/5 Fat Belly Social Steakhouse
Steak lovers are in for a delicious treat when they visit this new restaurant, serving a bevy of mouth-watering starters, meaty mains for sharing and a well-curated wine list.
Order a glass of vino (they have a 70-strong wine list of old and new world gems here) to go with your appetisers. Must-tries here include the delicately grilled octopus served with chorizo and tripe, as well as sourdough stacked with uni and lardo glazed with beef fat for added depth.
The restaurant puts the spotlight on the lesser-known cuts of beef like Flat Iron and Zabuton. The latter is popular for its well-marbled flesh and rich and juicy flavour that shines when it’s grilled to perfection. It's even better when it's served with six different sauces and sides such as crusted mac & cheese and tomato salad. Book here.
