event catering from Savoury City

Event Menus

Let´s celebrate!

We exist to assist in celebrating “life’s passing parade” of significant events with exceptional food and service. Whether it’s a 40th Birthday Party, 50th Anniversary Celebration or Baby Shower we’ve got the appropriate menus to match. As off-premise caterers we go anywhere you are – backyards, public parks, airport hangers, and we have all the necessary equipment to serve in style.

Our Service Staff

You’ll find our staff to be knowledgeable, attentive and gracious, but never in the way. They will make an ease event for you so you just need to be a guest in your own party!

Tray Passed Appetizers

As a general rule of thumb, plan on serving 3 to 4 bites per person before dinner and slightly more – 5 to 6 per person – if you’re only serving a light meal. If you’re serving appetizers in lieu of dinner, plan on 10 to 12 bites per person. Tray passed hors d’oeuvres are a great way to control the pacing of an event by controlling the flow of food. It also helps to ensure all of your guests are served equally.

Stationary Platters

Stationary platters work well if you’re working in a tight space and want guests to spread out. Strategically placing platters in different areas of the room as opposed to one central area helps with flow. Fewer service staff are required – they’re mainly on hand to replenish – but unlike the tray passed option, it’s difficult to control pacing.

A Combination of the Two

In our experience, a combination of the two styles of service works well for “cocktail
style” events where you want guests to mingle.

Add tray passed drink service and a stand-up bar, and you’ve got a party!

What our clients are saying

Always providing amazing food and service!

We wanted to let you know the food on Tuesday was a big hit (especially the flank steak)!! Thanks so much to you and your team for always providing amazing food and service :)

- N. Glover, Fraser Academy

Your response is one with a real human touch

I have to say, out of all the people I have contacted, your response is the one with real human touch rather than too "businessy". I already like your approach and feel that we will be in good hands. Thank you again for putting the menu together in a timely manner.

- Harinder, Vancouver

Level of customer service is top-notch

Thank you so much for such an incredible experience -- I am still so grateful for you being at the bottom of the stairs with rose and snacks after the ceremony! Working with you has been a pleasure and we were happy to see you on the day.

It was so, so important that people left feeling amazing about the meal... and we are seriously still getting messages from the guests raving about the food. You made it such a pleasant, comforting, beautiful, tasty experience -- we could not be happier. Also, all of your staff were SO NICE! I was honestly so touched by how many were just continuously wishing us the best, commenting on the event, and saying beautiful things. It made working with you feel so personal, rather than transactional, and I am grateful for that.

- Alicia & Daniel

6/5 stars

If I could give them 6/5 stars, I definitely would. Their sandwiches and wraps are some of the best tasting I’ve ever had! Their deliveries are also very prompt. Highly recommend.

- Akash Gugilla

The food itself is elegantly displayed and is very tasty

We have used Savoury City a couple of times for our company events and they have been excellent to work with. Flexible and willing to make changes to menu items to suit all dietary needs. Delivery is always on time and set up is effortless. The food itself is elegantly displayed and is very tasty. There are lots of options to satisfy all preferences. We will continue to use them annually for our events. Thank you to Eli and the whole Savoury City team!

Our office has been using Savoury City for over a decade

Our office has been using Savoury City for over a decade and while we've tried other caterers in the past, we always come back to Savoury City. The quality of the food, the variety, and the great customer service, from the minute you initially place the order to when you get the order have been unequalled elsewhere. We've had to ask them to accommodate very specific (and occasionally unusual) dietary preferences or requirements, and they've come through every single time, including a corporate style buffet for a relatively small group (only about 8 people) with a particular theme and several dietary preferences that wasn't on their usual menu - and they did a fantastic job. Both the clients and our partners raved about it. Their reliability is very good, but on the rare occasion where they got it wrong (and bear in mind, we've been using them for years), they are all about making it right, and they really do. I would recommend them for corporate and personal events - fantastic food, fantastic people, fantastic service. :)

- Naomi Stinton from Boyden

Their food and service is consistently flawless

Our company has been using Savoury City for quite some time now and their food and service is consistently flawless. As promised, the food is always delivered on time and cleaned up again the following day. They provide plenty of tasty options to suit all dietary needs and are super responsive, professional and great with menu design and suggestions. A very easy company to work with and I would highly recommend them to cater any event.

- Rebekah Lowry from Clark Willson

The food is delicious and well portioned.

We started using Savoury City almost 1 year ago and they have been fantastic! The food is delicious and well portioned.
