Coming in at a close world second and awarded best steak in the Europe region is Bodega El Capricho in the León province of northern Spain. This is undoubtedly meat country and Meat Masters José Gordón and Diego Zarate take slow food to the next level with their six-month long dry age process. From what we’ve heard, the wait is worth it.

Origin of Meat – Cattle and breeds from the Iberian peninsula
Ageing Method – Self dry-aged beef for up to 180 days
Type of Grill – Oak charcoal and wood-fired grill

In the third spot, we have Sydney’s finest Margaret. Margaret received the highest new entry and best steak restaurant in the Asia Pacific. We’re no stranger to the sheer talents of Neil Perry, Meat Master, renowned chef and newly crowned culinary icon by World’s 50 Best. But what makes the cuts at his Double Bay institution so good? The spirit of modern Australia cuisine, among many reasons:

Origin of Meat – Australian Hereford and Wagyu
Ageing Method – Wet and dry-aged beef
Type of Grill – Wood-fired grill

The common trend here seems to be the wood-fired grills, they could be on to something here! 

No. 8 — Rockpool Bar & Grill, Sydney

Another Sydney mention while we’re on the topic — Rockpool received 8th place on the list. A huge success and well-loved restaurant by many, serving locally-sourced beef. Rockpool has Meat Master Santiago Aristizabal on the charcoal grill, again with bespoke wood. While here, one might be inclined to up the steak meal with their equally good seafood and desserts. We warned you!

Origin of Meat – Blackmore’s Wagyu and Cape Grim Grass Fed Beef
Ageing Method – Dry-aged on premises
Type of Grill – Bespoke wood charcoal grill

Book a night to remember at Rockpool, whether you’re in Sydney, Melbourne or Perth.

No. 17 — Steer Dining Room, Melbourne

In numerology, 17 stands for leadership, independence and self-determination — exactly the values of Melbourne’s finest, Steer Dining Room in 17th place. The New York-style steakhouse serves sought-after Kobe Wagyu among other prized cuts. When in Melbourne, this classy dining room gets a vote for steak night.
