On the top  (5th floor) of Century Square, is The MeatHöuse, a comfortable halal western restaurant in Tampines that specializes in steaks – as you can probably guess from the name!

Beef ribs, lamb steak, sirloin steak, lamb ribs, lamb chop, etc. Note that medium often turns out more well done than rare.

But for the portions you get, the price isn’t as expensive as you would expect. A set for 2 pax costs S$50.

They also have other mains like strip loin pasta and fish and chips that are tasty. Side dishes and appetizers unfortunately aren’t as great as their meat companions.

The service is from staff is good if you manage to get their attention. However, if you happen to meet the manager of the establishment, his service is kind of crude and may turn you off.

Grilled chicken chop or Wagyu beef burgers are worth having for lunch at MediumRare by Saveur. Besides this, the black Angus prime rib (1kg) is recommended for groups to share.

6. Tokyo Western Food

Western food (with some Hainanese flair) in Tampines comes in the form of an old-school hawker setting with Tokyo Western food.
