Hold onto your napkins, folks, because this is about to get saucy! The Mayflower St. Leonards, the spot that is famous for its stunning 3000 custom-made paper butterfly installations, is firing up the grill with Jo Siahaan (Ume Burger & Best BBQ Ever Home Catering) for some sizzling Sunday Sessions. Four Sundays, four international BBQs, right in the heart of the lower north shore.

The BBQ bonanza starts on November 12th with a Brazilian feast, from 3pm until sold out. Attendees will be introduced to a smorgasbord of rump cap picanha, Rodriguez Bros chorizo, roasted pineapple, soft bread rolls, and chimichurri that packs a punch. For the vegetarian tribe, meats will be swapped out for roasted delights like peppers and eggplant.

But that’s just the beginning. Guests will journey to Korea on November 19th for some tantalising Korean BBQ. Then, on November 26th, it’s a trip to the US with a classic American BBQ homage. And for the grand finale? A Mediterranean extravaganza on December 10th. Diners will be treated to buttery lamb shoulder, delectable sujuk beef sausage, garlic labneh, golden pita and – a delightful twist for the vegetarians – grilled halloumi!

Jo Siahaan, the flavour master behind this collaboration, is known far and wide for infusing Japanese elements into beloved burger delights over at Ume Burger. He also brings mouthwatering BBQ goodness straight to your doorstep with his home catering services. “Teaming up with The Mayflower is a really exciting opportunity and together, we’re serving a global BBQ experience that promises to be both delightful and memorable,” says Siahaan.
