You’ve bbq-ed at home, in the forest, at home, in Korean restaurants, at condominiums and below your HDB block; but you can’t call yourself a true bbq-er unless you’ve experienced bbq-ing on the sea.
Yes, that’s right, smack dab in the middle of the sea surrounded by water. Check out what’s going on!
Donut Boat BBQ at Sea
The Floating Donut Company provide donut boats, equipped with a kettle grill in the centre for a bbq party in the middle of the ocean.
Okay, to be exact, it’s more of off the shores of Siloso beach, but who cares, right?
It’s a cheaper alternative of having a grill on a private yacht which is expensive and out of the league of us normal Singaporeans.
Each of these boats can seat up to 9 people and comes with a private captain to bring you in and out of the port.
The boats also come with speakers which you can hook your phones or mp3s to for some entertainment while dining.
Currently, the company offers two packages: one Snack & Cruise which is more budget-friendly and gives you a sailing time of 50 minutes.
On the other hand, if you’re prepared to go full-course, you can choose their BBQ Lunch Cruise which gives you meats, side dishes and desserts and a sailing time of 1 and a half hours.
But There’s a Catch
Of course, as with all good things, there are some factors you have to take into consideration. Because like my mother used to say, there’s no free lunch in this world.
One thing you have to be prepared for is the damage it can do to your wallet. For Snack & Cruise, it’ll cost you $48 while the BBQ Lunch Cruise will set you back by $75 per head.
Not exactly cheap for a bbq.
Another consideration is you can’t sneak food aboard like you’d usually do for the movies (admit it, we’ve all done it at least once). The private captain on the boat is obligated to inform his superiors about this unless you guys really managed to hit it off.
But you know what I think? Give it a shot because it’s literally a breath of fresh air in Singapore where the food scene can get, well, repetitive and boring.
Just make sure everyone goes to the toilet before boarding because there’s no toilet on board.
And while the captain doesn’t mind bringing the boat back to shore for anyone to use the toilet, you sure as hell wouldn’t appreciate it cutting into your cruise time because every single minute counts.
