10 Best Places for Western Food in Singapore

1. Fat Belly, for alternative steak cuts

Get your tummy ready for some quality beef cuts at Fat Belly. The cuts are pretty uncommon, so don’t expect your regular steak cuts, sirloin and tenderloin, on the menu. However, rest assured that the alternative cuts pack the same deliciousness that you would get in your usual steak. Apart from the meat, make sure that you don’t miss out on Fat Belly’s very own truffle fries. Perfectly crisp and luxuriously drizzled with truffle oil, each fry comes as a sinful bite. What’s even better is that you can savour Western food in a sophisticated and intimate setting – really great for date nights. 

To complement the rich taste of your steak cut, try a bottle (or two) from Fat Belly’s large selection of great wines from all over the world. Wine tasting with your loved one would always be a nice fancy adventure, especially if you are sampling the taste of wines from both the Old and New World. The wine list changes every two months, so there are more reasons to drop by this steakhouse.

Tropical cocktails, city view, great-tasting food – one can never go wrong with Potato Head Singapore. Located inside an iconic heritage building on Keong Saik Road, Potato Head is basically a multi-story restaurant. Visit the different floors based on your craving for the day, but rest assured that you get a taste of Western food no matter what level you pick.

Potato Head is designed like your typical home. The ground floor is a kitchen that’s actually a dynamic burger restaurant – Three Buns. Second floor is more like a relaxed living room, wherein you can enjoy an intimate sit-down dinner of wagyu and tapas with your loved ones. Next is a private studio, the Studio 1939, a decadent drinking den with an ever-evolving cocktail menu. And lastly, the rooftop is designed like a garden, but is actually an open-air rooftop bar. With all the food options, plus the whimsical paintings and furniture, we must say that Potato Head is a nice breather from a long day at work.

Going loco for Mexican food? Try visiting Margarita’s at Dempsey Hill. They probably have everything on your Mexican food must-eat list, from tacos to burritos to churros for dessert. And as you can expect from the restaurant’s name, this restaurant serves up pretty amazing margaritas as well. They also have a selection of specially curated drinks and a variety of dishes made with exotic ingredients that are up for you to enjoy. 

Inspired by the ruggedness, simplicity, and tradition of Old Mexico, we love Margarita’s because of the pleasant ambience. The restaurant looks very homey, like a rustic Mexican estate, which is made even better with the occasional presence of live music. If you don’t have company, you can take a seat on the outdoor patio, wherein you can savour your meal while watching the world go by. Margarita’s has been in service since 1988, so it is already a well-known spot for casual diners who are looking to satisfy their Mexican food cravings.

Walking inside the restaurant feels like you are in a museum – it’s warm and nostalgic, but with the subtle touches of modern aura.
