UP Shanghai is rolling out a big ol’ grill onto the terrace for Sunday Cookout, serving up heavy-hitting barbecue every Sunday until the foreseeable future.

Chef Carlos Sotomayor has prepped a killer barbecue menu of fire-grilled mains with sides to pair. Mains start from ¥68, each main comes with a side, and additional sides are ¥30.

Every Sunday Cookout will have a different theme centered around the barbecue. This Sunday’s edition is American barbecue: ribs, hot dogs, mac n cheese, and more.

But hey, don’t let me bore you—I’ll let the food speak for itself:

If it rains (speak not those words!) the show will go on. Tents are set up over the barbecue grill, half of the terrace is covered, and it’s plenty dry inside.

Make a reservation to avoid disappointment. E.g.: getting seats on the terrace. (You’ll have to wait until a table frees ups.)

Sunday Cookout is on every Sunday (unless there are other on-going events) with different themes to follow.
