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.
A good day and place to have a steak meal is on a Monday at Bedrock Bar and Grill at the Pan Pacific Serviced Suites. The restaurant is located on the ground floor, right next to the 313 Somerset shopping mall along Orchard Road. A good steak meal will not be complete without a nice bottle of red wine. On Mondays, no corkage fee is charged at Bedrock Grill, making this an attractive BYO restaurant in the Orchard Road area. Red meat and wine is a good combination to beat the Monday blues.
