The 14 must-visit restaurants in Robertson Quay

Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse

This Italian steakhouse has been a long-time resident along the Mohamed Sultan stretch of shophouses. As its name suggests, the signature dish here is the Bistecca alla Fiorentina, a thick T-bone steak prepared in traditional Tuscan style — cooked over a wood-fired grill for a beautiful char and juicy centre.

Dashi Master Marusaya

4

The restaurant is managed by katsuoboshi (read: bonito flakes) wholesaler Marusaya and diners can be assured of quality, great-tasting dashi that’ll put instant ones to shame. The dashi is prepared as a sauce or in a soup for most of the dishes on the menu. The best way to enjoy the dashi, however, is with the restaurant’s shabu shabu sets where the stock is served as it is.

Decker Barbecue

If you’re missing Texan barbecue, Decker is a pretty close alternative to go for. The restaurant swears by smoking its meats for up to 16 hours daily in a custom-built smoker made in Dallas, Texas. Naturally, the must-order here is the beef brisket and pulled pork.
