The barbeque selection is curated by a combination of Singapore’s hottest restaurants’ top grillers, roasters and smokers to guarantee you a smoky perfection. Also, with $88, you are invited to a 5-course pairing session with the restaurants’ signatures along with exclusive beers from Guinness’ Open Gate Brewery.
