iSteaks Star Vista is one of the outlets of iSteaks Diner, an outfit that focuses on meat items in their menu. It seems like the place to go for affordable steaks in Singapore. iSteaks has three outlets in Singapore. The other two are in Serangoon Gardens and Tampines Central. So far, I have always thought of Jack’s Place and Astons as the places to go for steaks that do not cost an arm and a leg in Singapore. Could iSteaks Diner be another place to go for affordable steaks in Singapore?
Popular bistro and fine foods store Culina Dempsey has closed their original store at Dempsey Block 8 and reopened a few blocks away, at Dempsey Block 15. It is now linked together with other outlets as a COMO Dempsey cluster of food and retail outlets at the front of the Dempsey Hill dining precinct. The new Culina Bistro (version 2019) is certainly bigger and newer. But is it better than the original one at Block 8? They opened at the new location a few days ago and we were there soon after to find out.
The Wine & Gourmet Friends is a restaurant that looks like what you would get when you cross a Singapore
Affordable steakhouse Astons has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 2005 from a coffeeshop along East Coast Road. The Ranch Steakhouse by Astons in Clarke Quay is a beautiful restaurant. It seems like the start of a new line of luxurious offerings from Astons. The launch of Lexus LS 400 separating the brand from the humble Toyota Corolla comes to mind. At our lunch at The Ranch Steakhouse, most of the right boxes were ticked and one particular aspect of the restaurant stood out.
There are many good steakhouses in Singapore. Finding the right one for the occasion is the challenge. It was a casual lunch and we were looking for a place that serves a good steak at prices that do not require an increase in our credit card limit. Several options came to mind and we ended up at Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse along Mohamed Sultan Road.
