Celeb Argentinian Chef Offers Priciest BBQ Meal In Singapore At $628 For Six Courses
Chef Francis Mallmann, who’s famous for cooking food over open fire, will construct an impressive dome-shaped barbecue contraption when he visits Singapore for a seven-day dinner in May.
Singapore is home to a number of three-Michelin-starred diners and posh sushi and European restaurants. Therefore, it’s no stranger to pricey meals. However, an upcoming seven-dinner series by visiting Argentinian celebrity chef Francis Mallmann, hosted at The Fullerton Bay Hotel’s The Clifford Pier, could possibly be the island’s most expensive six-course ‘ barbecue’ meal at $628 (it costs an extra $188 for wine pairing). The rustic-luxe “open-fire feast” next month will be personally prepped by the guest chef who "specialises in various Patagonian methods of barbecuing food with open fire". As a rough comparison, a tasting menu at buzzy wood fire-centric restaurant Burnt Ends at Dempsey is priced between $180 to $250. Even a lengthy multicourse meal at the famously costly three-Michelin-starred Restaurant Zen goes for a cheaper $580 per head.
The 66-year-old chef’s cooking is described as “elemental, fundamental and delicious” by late American TV personality Anthony Bourdain. Francis wrote two cookbooks, and was featured on a number of television programmes, including Netflix’s Chef’s Table.
