Our goal is to find a caterer that will serves us with good food and excellent venue setup at an affordable rate. Some people may say that this is quite impossible because most caterers would charge extra for the setup, but Im quite sure that there are some caterers out there that can provide us with this.
So much for an introduction, let me now give you a peek of what he had during the food tasting.
Supplier: Red Swan (sister company of Swan)
Date: 17th March, 2013
Venue: Red Swan office, G. Araneta, QC

The venue is located at an apartment by the Shell station on G. Araneta Ave. I didnt mind that the location is in an apartment, but we I was quite shocked (not in a good way) that the place was not nicely setup for the food tasting.
There were a number of dishes available during the food tasting event. Let me try to give you a short description for each food.
|Top left: Fish Charlemagne; Linguine pasta and pomodoro sauce|
|Chicken veronique, chicken cordon bleu, chicken pastel|
|[TR] beef with gravy, [TL] pot roast beef, [BL]roast pork, [BR] BBQ Spareribs|
|Dessert bar: Rolled mango crepe, seasonal fruits, buko salad|
|On our plate: buko salad and rolled mango crepe|
Rating: I'd probably give them a 3 over 5 star rating. Everything was just fine on an average note. There are a lot of things I think they could improve on. The food arent so impressive. Plus their package rates arent as cheap as I thought they will be. The linen colors that they presented to us are limited to hues of blues and pinks. Plus they dont have royal blue.
So our hunt for our perfect caterer continues.
