10 best affordable steaks below S$30 in SG

Few woes can’t be solved without a good, juicy affordable steak on a platter. It’s smoky, savoury, and honestly? One of my top-tier dishes to order on a menu whenever I’m feeling a little extra bougie that day.

Steaks don’t come usually come cheap, and I’m sure we’ve all walked into a restaurant, glanced at the price tag, mentally calculated the cost with service charge and GST, and thought, “maybe I’ll just eat the chicken instead.”

This changes today.

Here are 10 places to get an affordable steak below S$30 that won’t leave a hole in your wallet. 

1. Uno Beef House

UNO Beef House, hidden in a coffeeshop located in the heartlands of Toa Payoh offers some sizzling steaks. Their Black Pepper Ribeye Steak ($15) comes accompanied with their signature fried potato ball, tomato and baked beans. If you’re a carb lover through and through, the fries will cost an additional 50 cents.

For a small stall in a coffeeshop, their steak quality is impressive. It was the easiest to cut through and chew. Despite the sizzling pan’s best effort to evaporate all the moisture, this beaut managed to retain a pretty good amount of juice, giving every mouthful just the right amount of satisfaction.

Other steak choices include the Black Pepper Sirloin Steak ($13) and Black Pepper Tenderloin steak ($18).

2. The Feather Blade

The Feather Blade has amassed a pretty loyal legion of supporters, and that’s 100% well deserved. Their bestseller is none other than The Feather Blade Steak (S$21), and it’s the most no-frills, no-fuss steak one can expect. Order it in your preferred doneness, and be prepared to pop a tender piece of meat into your mouth.

Its affordable price points means that you’ll be able to treat yourself to a variety of their other sides to complement your meal.

Some of my personal favourites include the Potatoes (S$7), hand smashed and deep fried in beef fat for a tantalising mouthful, and the Spinach (S$7), which boasts of a fragrant nutmeg and parmesan combination.

3. iSTEAKS Diner

iSteaks really does live up to their name with a plethora of steaks like the New Zealand Ribeye ($18 for 200g), New Zealand Striploin ($16 for 200g), and Australian Ribeye ($20 for 200g) on top of premium quality steak cuts like Australian Wagyu, Tenderloin and Porterhouse steaks.

If you don’t want to spend too much, I’d recommend getting their 250g cut of New Zealand Striploin ($19). It’ll arrive nicely seared, deliciously charred yet pink and tender on the inside. Oh you’ll get your money’s worth, trust me.

4. Steak Me

You might remember them as Le Steak, but they’ve rebranded, and now, Le Steak is on the menu of affordable places to get a good, hearty steak for dinner. They are even halal certified, which means our Muslim friends can join in on the feasts. Their specials are relatively affordable—the PS Striploin aka New York Steak will only set you back S$24.

Alternatively, you can opt for something slightly more bougie without breaking the bank. The PS Ribeye aka Scotch Fillet costs S$28, and promises a fulfilling meal nonetheless. Lightly charred, and bursting of a seductive, smoky aroma, this one’s worth making the trip down for, and that’s a promise.

Mention the word “wagyu” to any steak enthusiast, and their eyes will light up immediately. It’s become pretty popular, and you can now get an affordable fix of wagyu at Bizen Okayama, which is run by the same folks as Aston’s.

7. Steakville

Steakville 15

Steakville is located at Sunshine Plaza and what makes it interesting is the cuts of beef are imported from various farms around the world to ensure what they serve is of the best quality.

The Signature Hanger Steak ($15, 150g) is prized for its flavour and friendly on the wallet. It came with house salad, beetroot puree, truffle mustard and sea salt.

While the steak was tender, we found it to be slightly gamey for our liking. That’s when you can sprinkle some sea salt on the beef to neutralise the gaminess of the beef.

When it comes to looking for an affordable choice, Stirling Steaks will be the one to beat. No this is not a drill—the steaks here go as low as S$9.90 for a 150g cut of Hanger Steak, which is served with salsa verde. You can even opt for an add on of S$1.50 for paprika fries.

9. Picanhas

I’ve only tried Picanhas once, but I’m already awaiting the day I can do so again. At a mere S$25 for their Queen of Steak and a S$17 Picanha Don, the prices are hard to beat, and the quality even more so.

Thinly sliced, and oozing of a flame-grilled perfection, these steaks are what dreams are made of. They use a special Picanha rump cut, and every slab is finished with Binchotan Butter, giving it a full-bodied flavour with a tender bite.

10. Meat n’ Chill

Meat and Chill Steak

Meat n Chill’s New York Strip ($19) is 220g, and that’s pretty cheap for that amount of good steak. Their New York Strip is delightful with rich flavours, giving you a great bang for your buck.

They also offer the Grass Fed Flat Iron Steak($28). Sous vide first, then grilling, this beauty has excellent overall tenderness that leave lingering smokiness and meaty essences.

All steaks are served with two side dishes of your choice. The only unfortunate thing is that orders for steaks are limited to 10 to 15 a day as the preparation process is arduous and takes time.
