It was supposed to be a fairly simple one as both families didn't request for much. We initially only wanted to do the bare minimum, but actually ah, I felt that 'basic' was more difficult than 'lavish'. Everybody had different expectations of what's a necessity and what's not, so over time and after multiple "advice" from people around us, we added this and added that, until we ended up being far from simple yet not entirely complete. Eventually, we decided to pack an additional angpow to represent the remaining that we may have missed. We should have just went for 'full package' right from the start and purchase everything from a traditional Chinese wedding shop! Haha.
I'm just glad both of our parents were so easy going with regards to the Guo Da Li and allowed us to make most decisions ourselves!
We also invited our relatives over for the Guo Da Li, and we had to cater food!
Thankfully, I knew about Foodline.sg, Singapore's biggest catering portal since 2009. It was a breeze ordering the buffet spread because instead of navigating through numerous websites, I only had to scroll through the shortlisted menus listed on Foodline based on my search criteria such as budget, number of pax, type of buffet, etc. Best thing is, there are real reviews and photos sent in by customers so I know what to expect from each caterer in terms of taste, service and presentation.
After checking out several menus, we decided to order from Ronnie's Kitchen mainly because of their high rating on Foodline - They are rated 4.2 stars based on 429 reviews in total! I think they are also quite well known because I know of some friends who have catered from them before too!
Besides Foodline's Best Brice Guarantee, some caterers also include a free additional dish as part of a Exlusive-with-Foodline promo! Ronnie's Kitchen gave us a free platter of prawn dumplings! Such a good deal just by ordering from Foodline's catering portal!
We had a total of 12 courses inclusive of dessert and drink. There was a wide variety to choose from and we were definitely spoiled for choice.
Broccoli w/ Mushroom
Sweet and Sour Sliced Fish
Honey Sauce Pork
Salted Egg Chicken
Black Pepper Prawn
Deep Fried Prawn Dumplings
Sea Coconut w/ Sago
The food looked so appetizing with its vibrant colours ya?
The portions were huge and we had more than enough to feed everyone. I generally received good feedback from my guests for the food, especially the curry chicken! I had multiple servings of it myself too! I also liked how there are special dishes available such as Ginger Duck and Salted Egg Chicken. The pineapple rice was tastier than I expected and the veggies were so yummy!! Sweet and sour fish was a favourite among the kids and the seafood were quite fresh too.
Only one item from each tray (minus broccoli + additional piece of curry chicken) and the plate is so full already!
