Best catering companies in Singapore
Every year, my family and relatives come together for a gathering. It became a tradition that we started many years ago. As all of us are such foodies, we usually hire different catering companies every year for a change. Soon enough, we managed to compile a list of catering companies that met our expectations. Together with recommendations from some of my peers, here are 13 catering companies that can help ease the burden of your party-hosting journey.
