Feasts for the seas


You’ve rounded up your friends, booked your boat, got your new swimwear sorted, and checked out our ultimate guide. But what about the food? Whilst many junk boat companies offer their own catering add-ons, there’s nothing better than having your favourite food aboard when you’re out at sea. Whether you’re mad for Mexican, love barbecue meats, or are after some snazzy sandwiches (with all the sides!), we’ve rounded up our favourite junk catering companies for you to choose from. And yes, the delicious menus will taste even better after a beer or two…

Fat Legs’ BBQ

Reinventing the BBQ scene in Hong Kong, Fat Legs offers flavoursome Thai barbecue dishes to liven up your next junk trip. With all of the dishes packing a real punch (perfect for spice fiends), Fat Legs is ideal if you’re after something more than the uninspired offerings out there.

The Sassy girls more than willingly sampled a few of the dishes, and the stand outs have got to be the Grilled Pork Neck and veggie Cauliflower Laarb Salad. Not forgetting a couple of the addictive Thai lamingtons (soaked in lemongrass, ginger and Sangsom rum!), to round off your meal.

How much: $220 / $260 / $350 (per person) – depending on menu choice.
