La Vache!
Parisian style steakhouse La Vache! is noted for having only one option — Trimmed entrecôte steak with special house sauce, (all-you-can-eat) french fries, and green salad with walnuts. The steak is best enjoyed medium rare, while we found the french fries to have a BBQ aftertaste, which we guess is due to being fried in beef fat. Make sure to leave room for the dessert cart, featuring tarts and cakes that are absolutely divine.  48 Peel St, Central, 2880 0248; lavache.com.hk
Porterhouse
Boasting a “haute couture” meat locker and exclusive suppliers, Porterhouse serves a wide variety of cuts, including Spanish Los Nortenos Rubia Gallega 90-day dry aged porterhouse, and Australian Ranger Valley Wagyu MB5+ Tomahawk. When available we opt for the five course tasting menu that includes the luscious Lobster bisque, Wagyu beef carpaccio, Seared scallops, Grilled USDA prime beef sirloin and Green tea tiramisu. Additionally, the new brunch menu features an amazing spread of salads, seafood, meat mains and desserts, with the choice of add-on steak and lobster roll options. 

Quarter Master
Quarter Master, in a quiet corner of Sai Ying Pun, is a hidden gem for steak lovers. A tiny bistro, Quarter Master only uses meat from its next door butchery, Bones & Blades. Highlighting family farms, the resulting steaks (priced per 100grams) and burgers are juicy and delicious, and just a fraction of the usual price seen in higher-end steakhouses in Hong Kong. Its Blue cheese burger is a WOM Guide favourite! 1 Second St, Sai Ying Pun, 2517 4266; quartermasterhk.comBuenos Aires Polo Club
This Argentinian steakhouse has a secret clubhouse for equestrian enthusiasts theme, featuring the country’s obsession with grilling. Before getting to its more meaty options we recommend the salads, and the super creamy Burrata with garlic chives, tomato and gaucho bread. For steaks we opt for the General Pico black angus range, with a choice of seven cuts, including sirloin, ribeye, and T-bone. 7/F LKF Tower, 33 Wyndham St, Central, 2321 8681; bapoloclub.com
Morton’s of Chicago
With panoramic views of the harbour, Morton’s is a Hong Kong institution, serving up stunning steaks and a selection of classic American sides. We recommend getting Centre-cut filet mignon for an intimate dinner for two, and several Prime porterhouse for bigger groups. We prefer going here as part of a large group so we can enjoy all the indulgent sides, such as the must-have Bacon and onion mac’n’cheese and Sautéed spinach and button mushrooms, plus of course, the signature onion bread. The Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Fourth Level, 20 Nathan Road, Kowloon, 2732 2343; mortons.com/hongkong
