Top 7 Grill Restaurants in Singapore

American barbecue is all about paying homage to three things – wood, meat, and smoke. But lots of places, such as Kansas, Texas, Memphis, and the Carolinas, tend to put their own twist on it.

Nowadays, pork has become the biggest star in this regard. But beef gets its turn as well.

Usually, before hitting the grill, the meat gets a tasty rub or marinade.

Then comes the most interesting part – slowly cooking it over low heat with hickory wood for the amazing smoky taste. It’s a bit of a wait but let me tell you – it’s totally worth it!

So, in Singapore, if you’re craving some Texas-style goodness, you’ve got S’Mao giving a nod to the Lone Star State. Then there is Griglia Open Fire Italian Kitchen, where on weekends, they’re slinging massive beef ribs alongside their daily pork fix.

Meatsmith and Meat N’ Chill?

They’re all about putting an international spin on classic American BBQ. And if you’re into the old-school vibe, Red Eye over at Jalan Besar has got you covered.

Fancy some St. Louis style ribs? Head to Smokey’s. And for a taste of Memphis BBQ, Jerry’s BBQ & Grill over at Jalan Kayu is where it’s at!
