For something different, wow your crew with Aperitif’s bestselling Graze box, which makes a festive and fancy pica–pica. The large Graze box (P7,000)—which can feed 10 to 15 hungry workmates—is filled with sumptuous cheeses, cold cuts, truffle honey, chocolates, pretzels, grapes, and other more trappings. Pop open that bottle of red wine and you’re in for a long night ahead.
Sushi platters at Maki Sushi Factory
Source: Maki Sushi FactoryMaki Sushi Factory wasn’t kidding when they called themselves a “sushi factory”; the local store serves gigantic platters of assorted sushi that will surely be the main attraction at any buffet table. For get-togethers, order their 150-piece sushi platter for only P990, which can feed around 15 to 20 hungry friends. But if you’re hosting a big Christmas party, you can’t go wrong with their mouthwatering 400-piece sushi platter that costs P2,875.
Spice up your spread with Manam’s highly-raved Pinoy dishes with a twist. The restaurant’s best sellers Sinigang na Beef Short Rib and Watermelon (P1,630), which is a sweetened version of the classic sour Sinigang, and Crispy Pancit Palabok (P1,330), with its crispy pancit strands, are interesting offerings your guests won’t ever forget (it might even be a good conversation starter!). Manam’s potluck offerings are good for 10 to 12 people and are available for pre-order via Food Panda.
When in doubt, bring a platter of pasta to the party and it will be a sure hit! Because who can say no to spaghetti, right? Amici has a wide selection of pasta, from classics like Spaghetti Alla Carbonara (P1,380) and Spaghetti al Pomodoro (P910) to something more special like Linguine al Prosciutto e Tartufo (P1,375). According to Amici, the portions are good enough for 8 diners, but we think more people can share these drool-worthy platters.
