Sample catered weddings

Gretchen and Zach met in the Caribbean, and wanted to include some island vibes in their wedding reception menu and decor choices. They also wanted other vegetarian food that would work with Caribbean flavors. So we curated a cohesive menu featuring Puerto Rican, South Asian and East Asian food, with extensive vegan and gluten-free options!

    Upohar was terrific, from the tasting to the wedding day; they were easy to communicate with and provided clear invoices with all information included. They had so many food options that we had trouble choosing our favorites. We loved having the food truck for our guests to pick up appetizers (samosas/empanadas) during cocktail hour and their entrees during the reception. All the food was served hot, and on the bamboo plates I requested. We even had plenty of leftovers to eat with friends for several days after the event. All the food was wonderful, but we especially highly recommend the beef empanadas and pollo asado entree. Don't hesitate to book Upohar for your event; they were a foodie's dream!

    We hired Upohar to cater our wedding in our home (65 guests) and it couldn't have been better. The food was delicious and the service was spectacular. Everyone raved about it. Highly recommend!

    We chose Upohar to cater food for our Sangeet, and everything went so well! We worked with Stephanie, Erica, and Sri. They made every step of the process - from the initial consultation, to the tastings, to the many follow-ups, to the actual event - so easy. They were incredibly kind, patient, and helpful. The venue that we held our event at doesn't allow outside catering, but they made an exception for us. Upohar was great with working with our venue directly to figure out the best plan for execution. They were very detail oriented and made sure everything was accounted for. The food was DELICIOUS. We are so happy with the menu we decided on. The staff at the event was super professional and did a great job with serving people, answering questions, and turning over for each course. Everything went perfectly, and we were truly stress free knowing Upohar was handling all of our food. We would highly recommend!
