  • 5 Party Tray and Catering Services for Your Next Potluck Party
  • With the holiday season coming up, parties and reunions are popping in from left to right. In a Filipino setting, holidays are usually a time for the family to gather and bond.

    In these gatherings, food becomes a central element, bringing families closer together as members bring their own specialties to the table.

    The potluck format in Filipino gatherings is not new. In fact, this is usually practiced in get-togethers where guests contribute a homecooked dish to be shared by the entire party.

    However, there are situations where preparing and cooking food for a potluck becomes impossible due to time constraints or when you just can’t make up your mind on what to bring.

    Fret not because here is a rundown of establishments in the metro offering various party trays and catering services for your woes!

    China Mommy

    China Mommy preserves its Filipino-Chinese heritage with a menu that features Chinese lumpia, crabs, fortune bags and prawns among others. They have whole orders and half-orders for their dishes.

    China Mommy’s dishes for bigger groups include the China Mommy Special Misua, which is good for 12 to 15 people, and the Lo Ba for groups of 10 to 12 people.
