Why You Should Consider Bento Catering
December 7, 2022 /
Many Singaporeans are excited to regain some semblance of normalcy after the recent easing of a raft of COVID-19 measures. With the restriction on group size limits lifted, there will undoubtedly be an increase in the number of people planning a party or an event.
As any party organiser will attest, one of the most crucial elements to get right for a celebration is the food. And it is no secret that Singaporeans are foodies. As such, selecting the right menu for a large gathering can be a real dilemma.
If you are encountering the same issue, fret not! We are here to help you. Allow us to outline why bento catering is the ideal option for those looking to satisfy the cravings of a wide variety of taste buds.
Reason #1: A feast for the eyes and taste buds
We live in a digital age, where everyone enjoys sharing their meals on social media with their friends and family. As such, the plating of the food is often just as crucial as its taste.
Fortunately, bento sets not only provide your guests with a hearty meal but also a feast for their eyes. Every ingredient is neatly arranged in individual compartments within the box, resulting in a neater presentation.
Furthermore, a study conducted by Professor Charles Spence has indicated that a dish that looks good makes it effectively taste better too. Even a thoughtful presentation of simple ingredients can whet the appetite of your guests, making the meal more flavourful to them.
Reason #2: Helps with portion control
The individual compartments in a bento box serve an additional purpose beyond visual appeal; it also helps with portion control. Generally, each compartment can hold a single serving of an ingredient, which helps limit the amount of food one can pack into a bento set. This is an excellent way to ensure your guests eat sensibly and do not overindulge at your party, especially if they made it known that they are on a diet.
Reason #3: Menu variety
As the saying goes, “variety is the spice of life.” Anyone will tire of eating the same cuisine or dish every day. If you want your party to stand out, the common dishes found in most food catering services are probably not going to cut the mustard. You need something different – and bento catering can provide exactly that!
At Stamford Catering, we provide a comprehensive selection of bento sets that cater to a variety of dietary needs – including vegetarian and halal bento catering. If you are planning a gathering for friends and family, do not hesitate to reach out to us for your food catering needs.
Reason #4: Balanced and nutritious meal
There is a common misconception that eating healthy means avoiding particular types of food. However, our body requires various nutrients that can only be obtained from eating numerous types of food.
The bento sets provided by Stamford Catering – which are halal-certified – include a healthy mix of protein, carbohydrate, antioxidant, and fibre options, ensuring you and your guests get to enjoy a well-balanced and nutritious meal.
Moreover, each compartment offers just enough of each dish to satisfy the cravings of your guests without them losing interest in the food. This will help reduce food wastage, which is common in self-serve buffets.
As you finalise the details of your celebration, it is advisable to pay special attention to the food you present to your guests. You may find that bento catering is the stand out option that leaves a memorable impression on your friends and families!
