Here are three places that we have beef (and duck and roast pork) with this month.
Philly Shack is at 3A River Valley Road.
If you ever ﬁnd yourself craving greasy, messy, American fast food after a Tequila-fuelled night out (or a really stressful day), Philly Shack at Clarke Quay is the answer to your prayers... and they open till 2am from Wednesdays to Saturdays. The star of the show here is undoubtedly the Philly Cheesesteak, $15. Think juicy slices of ribeye beef and caramelised onions stuffed in the warm embrace of a pillowy bun, topped with a generous layer of cheese. Go for the Cheez Whiz, which is apparently the authentic way to have your Philadelphia cheesesteak. We recommend shelling out an extra three bucks for The Fully Loaded, which comes with additional green peppers, mushrooms and jalapenos. And if you like things spicy, ask the staff to point you to the hot sauce corner, where there are lots of options to choose from. They also serve amazing boozy milkshakes, $13, to wash it all down.
Teppanyaki Hamburg Nihonbashi Keisuke Bettei is at 72 Peck Seah Street.

When it comes to beef, Japan is best known for their prestigious wagyu and kobe steaks. But there’s also the humble hamburg steak, which is the main attraction at Tanjong Pagar’s newest eatery on the block. The menu features just two main options: the Keisuke Prime Beef Hamburg Set, $18.80, and the Triple Cheese Prime Beef Hamburg Set, $20.80. Both are made with freshly ground prime US beef served on a sizzling hot plate ﬂanked by tofu cubes, fried shrimp and a pot of a sauce of your choice. The cheese hamburg is our pick – it’s stuffed with cheddar, mozarella and parmesan that oozes out of the juicy patty as you cut into it (get your camera ready!). Diners also get free-ﬂow access to the salad bar, which boasts a selection of 20 rotating items – think everything from ramen and potato salads to simmered pumpkin and pickled cabbage. There’s even an egg station, where you can get unlimited eggs done in six ways, including sunny side up, scrambled and Tamagoyaki.
Kam’s Roast is at #01-04/05/06/07 Pacific Plaza.
This popular roast meat joint from Hong Kong has rolled out a high tea set, available from 2:30pm to 5:30pm daily except for public holidays. While roast meat for high tea might sound a little strange, it’s a good way to sample the best of their offerings without going into a food coma, or having to arrange for a big group of friends to share the food with. The premium high tea set, $18.80, comes with “Toro” char siew – the fattiest piece of char siew you will ever eat – BBQ char siew, roast pork, roast duck, braised noodles, and marinated cucumber with vinegar and garlic. The meal includes Chinese tea and red bean soup for dessert. Come hungry.
