9 Steamboat And BBQ Restaurants You Shouldn’t Be Paying The Full Price For

With minimal effort, you never have to pay full price again when eating steamboat or BBQ.


Dining out in Singapore is no longer something reserved for special occasions. Singapore’s restaurant industry achieved 4.8% year-on-year (YOY) growth in June 2018. Steamboat and BBQ restaurants have benefitted heavily from this meteoric rise in demand.

Fierce competition in the F&B sector has prompted many steamboat and BBQ restaurants to deploy aggressive promotions to attract customers.

With minimal effort, you can save some money to make your meal even more affordable and enjoyable. So here are 9 Steamboat and BBQ restaurants which you shouldn’t be paying the full price for.
