There’s no doubt about it – in Singapore, food is both figuratively and literally the order of the day. And they really do love their barbecues. It isn’t at all uncommon to see large groups booking out entire chalets simply to enjoy roasted marshmallows or grilled meat.
Of course, that can be quite costly when done too often. Fortunately, there’s a less expensive option in some of Singapore’s finest BBQ spots. So where are the places to BBQ in Singapore? Here are my top picks!
Where to BBQ in Singapore?
1. East Coast Park
East Coast Park is quite simply legendary. Many locals have grown up playing in this park, which stretches more than 15km. If you’re looking to create an outdoor feast, areas B-G alone offer more than 80 BBQ pits. If you’re looking for a classic barbecue pit in Singapore, this is your spot.
If, for some strange reason, the food fails to fill you up, there are no shortage of restaurants in the area for another helping.
2. Wang Dae Bak Korean BBQ
While it may not be near the ocean or out in the open air, the South Korean style of BBQ is a great experience for any meat lover. You cook your very own meat to absolute perfection, and on top of that, there are also soju, Korean pancakes, and free flow sides.
Singapore food, of course, is a fusion of various other foods on the continent, which explains why Korean BBQ is so popular.
Japanese food also features heavily, with such foods as raw fish, ramen, and sushi regularly ordered both from restaurants and delivery services.
Deliveroo brings Japanese food straight to your door for those days when you really can’t handle putting on a BBQ.
And let’s face it: those days will come.
3. Sentosa BBQ by the Beach
If you like the idea of waking up to your BBQ pit with everything waiting for you – a pit ready to go, marinated meat, and cutlery, you can experience that at the Sentosa BBQ pit by the Beach. You’re ensured some stunning sea views and there’s nothing for you to do as everything is laid out for you.
For SGD170, five people can feast on a wide selection of fish and meat.
4. Pasir Ris Park
Pasir Ris Park offers the perfect place for friends and family to spend some quality time outdoors, whether you’re visiting or live in Singapore. Along with the countless BBQ pits, a green maze and a skating rink, there are also bicycles to rent and playgrounds for families to hang around in.
The BBQ pits, as well as being plentiful in number, are situated right next to the water, which provides you with an ocean breeze while you’re enjoying your meat. Once you’ve finished feasting, you can make your way over to the mangrove forest, where you can take part in some water sports or simply engage in bird watching.
It isn’t easy to come across a sheltered BBQ pit in Singapore. Yet while the pits don’t have direct covers, there are a number of them around close by.
So for all of you who love a good meat feast, and a smokey one at that, you can’t go wrong with any of the options on this list. Just be prepared to watch that meat unfold your hungry eyes and devour it like there’s no tomorrow.
