Ist birthday anak ko kahapon, bellevue clubhouse, Caterer ko friend hubby- lahat masarap, madami servings,  nalate konti kasi lumakas ulan pero ok lang kasi umabot after games. 120 reserve mga 180 kumain, then 60 kids, dami pa kme nauwe at napakain lahat supplier.

Food ko:
Coldcuts in cocktail stick
Beef lengua
Baked chicken
Grilled tuna in lemon butter sauce
Lasagna
Seafood in oyster

Chocolate cake
Buko pandan
Leche flan
Blueberry cheesecake in shot glass

Choco fountain with dippings

Bottomless iced tea and rice

Kasama na sa bayad yung decor pero pangit yun nakuha nya na decor kasi di nakabit lahat balloons.
Buti nalang masarap food at generous servings.

I recommend CenterTable. :) They catered our wedding in Fernbrook and my daughter's baptism in Santuario de San Antonio. Their setup is really nice and their food's panalo talaga.

Pero sa 1st birthday ng baby ko, we're trying naman Verleo. I'm getting a venue decorator na kasi for the balloons and backdrops, so ok lang sa'kin na walang kasamang table centerpieces and buffet dress-up. Besides, I've also been reading raves about Verleo.. tapos mas mura pa sila sa CenterTable, hihi.  Sana masarap din naman. :)

Share ko lang we got VERLEO's CATERING for my daughter's 1st bday last week

Php 340.00+ per head
- Plain Rice
- Sotanghon
- Boneless Chicken Teriyaki
- Barbequed Spareribs
- Steamed Fish Fillet with soy sauce
- Fried Assorted Vegetable Roll (on the spot)
- for dessert, Buco Pandan & Mango Crepe

Php 130.00+ kiddie menu   
- Spaghetti with Meat Sauce
- Garlic Fried Chicken
- Pork BBQ (1 stick)
- Choco Cupcake with Sprinkles

VERDICT: 9/10-- Sa food quality/quantity and services nila OTD, 10/10 kaso yung transactions ko sa kanila during the preparations ang medyo sablay. Based overseas kasi ko kaya thru emails/phone call ang communication ko sa kanila and tamad mag-reply nung 1st AE ko (basta 2weeks yata before ng event, pina-finalize ko yung agreed details ang wala na daw siya) yung pumalit naman sa kanya, parang medyo lutang din (iniintindi ko na lang na nag-take over lang nga sya kaya hindi familiar) kaya medyo stressed ako at ipoint-out every details na gusto ko at napagkasunduan. Buti as expected naman lahat on the day itself, very generous ng servings nila, hindi super grand ang food pero not bad for the price we paid-- super dami naming inuwing tira, pati softdrinks binigay talaga nila! presentable & gracious ang waiters and wala ding additional/hidden fees :)

mukhang Verleo ang ok na caterer based sa mga feedbacks :) ok ba yung set up nila? im planning to get Mr. Balloonatix in case I will get Verleo as my caterer. I only have 2 options, get Party Time Philippines as caterer and venue decor OR Verleo + Mr. Balloonatix... which combi is cheaper?

I am trying to convince my hubby to approve Passion Cooks to be our caterer on baby's bday, i don't want to show him the menu/package rates yet kasi mamamahalan sya for sure. Instead, i'd like him to taste the food first so I'm coordinating with pc na for our food tasting appointment. Sana mapapayag namin si hubby.

Mommies who have tried PC, what are the best-sellers, or your most fave dish? Para yun irerequest ko sa food tasting :)

^ You can always ask for a customized menu that will fit your budget.  For example, may set budget ako before so I asked Maja/Renee to take out one main course na lang.  She can help you make a menu na swak sa budget mo without sacrificing quality.  Even if you have 3 main courses lang, plus a pasta dish, sobrang okay na kasi masarap lahat!    Mas gusto ko ito kaysa may overflow ng courses pero hindi lahat masarap. :)

My personal favorites are the baked chicken galantine and ham and cheese/bacon and mushroom quiche. :)

Dito sa GT, ang most often included dishes sa menu are the three mushrooms pasta (eto ang pasta namin at masarap siya), prawns thermidor (hindi ko in-order kasi alam kong mahal ang prawns), herbed roast pork (our guests really liked this dish), grilled beef kebabs and ham and cheese crepe. :)

Sa October, ang plan ko i-order for merienda cena are the fish finger wraps, chicken galantine, beef kebabs and a pasta dish, either beef stroganoff or fettuccine boscaiola.  Naghihintay lang ako ng sagot from Melissa kung doable ang budget na binigay ko. :) 

Edited to add:  The customer service of Passion Cooks is commendable talaga.  I inquired yesterday re updated price list, received a reply from Melissa right away (as in, within the hour) and today, I received a quote na on my food orders, plus chef's suggestion on new dishes to try.  And best of all, they're giving me a 10% discount as birthday gift.   ;D

ang iniisip ko nga wag na mag-pork dish,kung may lechon na naman. Maganda talaga ang customer service ng PC, kaya vocal ako na gusto ko talaga sila makuha kaya nagpapatulong ako na  maconvince si hubby. :)

thanks marose and stormy for the suggestions, noted. :)

@Rain, i-de-deliver nila most likely (okay lang kahit magbayad ako ng delivery fee) at baka mawala ako kung pick-up basis (di ako familiar sa South area).   Sa Makati naman kasi ang office ko.  Monday ko gagawin, eh alam ko most Mondays, nakikipag-meet si Maja sa clients in Makati. :) 

Kung hindi lang sana sila sa South, o-order din ako for my birthday, which falls on a Saturday.  Kaso, ang layo kasi ng place nila from my house.

Last year, dineliver nila for free ang food orders ko, may waiter/staff pa na nag-arrange sa office namin para maganda pa rin ang presentation. :)

Masarap ba ang Boscaiola?   ;)

@zach26, re freebies, siguro kung repeat customer ka,  may freebies or discounts, although hindi lahat ng suppliers kayang mag-offer ng ganyan.  Usually, malalaking caterers (dahil afford nila, economies of scale di ba) kayang-kaya mag-offer ng freebies pang-engganyo sa customers. :)

Sweet Inspirations catered my son's small party this afternoon. I am very happy with the type of service that I got from them. Mabilis sila kumilos and they even volunteered to fix the loot bags, prizes, cake and cupcakes. Inarrange din nila ang few balloons that we inflated for the party (nagtipid mode ako kaya I didn't order any balloon decorations this time). Para akong may party assistant aside from a caterer.
Brown out sa venue nung nagseset-up sila pero wala akong narinig na reklamo from them.
Yummy ang food and plenty ang servings. I got merienda cena menu (lasagna, grilled boneless chicken, mini pork bbq, clubhouse sandwich triangles, assorted pastries (yema balls, butterscotch bars and espresso brownies) plus 2 food carts (halo halo and mini pizza). Busog ang guests ko and satisfied sila sa taste. Attentive ang waiters. Since maraming nahiyang pumila sa food carts, they volunteered to just serve the halo halo and mini pizzas sa tables. Mabilis din mag-refill ng drinks. Game sila to assist in picture taking at pagtulong sa amin ng hubby ko.
I booked for 60 guests and about 50 came pero ang dami pa ring left overs.
Thank you marose17 for your post about them last June.  :)

^ We have the same menu, doc lelet!  I am glad you liked Sweet Inspirations.  Value for money talaga sila, classy pa ang set-up and malasa talaga ang food.  Service nila sobrang okay.  Most of their waiters have been with them since I was in college pa. :)

Si Verleo na lang kukunin ko as caterer since madami good reviews sa lasa ng food nila. medyo off lang ako on how the assigned AE answers my email. parang hindi muna binabasa mabuti yung content ng email so ang tendency eh hindi nasasagot lahat ng inquiry ko and i have to send another email para itanong ulit yun. and dun sa binigay sa akin na sample contract, hindi din nalagay yung correct info na sinabi ko, parang lutang yung utak nung kausap ko hehe.. mali mali yung nakalagay :D
