Enjoy Buffet in Box with Bento Meal Catering in Singapore

Bento boxes are an excellent way to enjoy complete, healthy meals with infinite variations. Instead of a large amount of a certain food, bento boxes allow you to enjoy tailored amounts of a variety of dishes. Basically, you’ll get to enjoy a buffet in a box!

Similar to traditional Japanese teishoku-style meals, the idea behind bento boxes is to have a balanced, complete meal. Bento boxes usually contain a well-rounded selection of carbohydrates,  protein and vegetables. In addition, some boxes add a savoury snack like a chicken nugget or fried fish ball.

Popular with children and adults alike, bento boxes are an excellent way of enjoying a variety of dishes in a convenient takeout container. Order some extras for storage in the freezer and microwave a delicious, balanced meal when you get the munchies the next day.

Too busy to cook and looking for bento catering services in Singapore?  Our team of passionate foodies at Le Rainbow Catering have been providing food catering throughout the country since 2016.

Halal Bento Catering for Personal and Corporate Events

Whether you’re looking to cater meals in Singapore for friends, family, or co-workers, bento boxes are a convenient way of enjoying a delicious and satisfying meal in the comfort of your home or office environment.

Corporate events, especially large scale ones, typically have massive queues at the buffet tables. As social distancing has become a part of the new normal in Singapore, bento boxes allow you to provide your event attendees with the best of a buffet experience neatly packaged in a box. The “grab-and-go” nature of bento boxes is a quick way to serve a large group of people efficiently. They can then break into smaller groups to enjoy their meal together.

Bento boxes can also be ordered for family gatherings for a fuss-free time bonding over a nutritious meal. You’ll be able to save on the trouble of washing up with disposable bento boxes. Leftover sets can even be brought to the office for a balanced meal ready to be microwaved and relished the next day.

The Le Rainbow Catering Bento Experience

The dishes in our bento boxes draw inspiration from Western, Asian, and local Singaporean flavours in an exciting fusion of taste. We are hugely passionate about food and constantly work with our talented chefs on improving our recipes according to customer feedback.

Halal Home Catering for Your High Tea Event in Singapore

The tradition of enjoying an afternoon tea paired with sandwiches, pastries, and other finger food began in the 1700s. This pleasant British ritual is a meal usually savoured around 3 to 4 o’clock. Initially meant to be a break for working men, high tea was traditionally eaten sitting on high stools or standing up, hence the term “high”.

While hugely popular in Singapore, regular high teas might start to make less economic sense. Throwing your own high tea party with a home catering partner gives you more control over the budget, menu, and location.

Although there aren’t hard and fast rules when it comes to food selection, a standard afternoon high tea traditionally includes sandwiches, cakes, pastries, and other snacks. Other popular choices in Singapore include local delights like dim sum, chicken rendang, sotong balls, samosas, and curry puffs.

Le Rainbow has been providing halal food catering to Singapore since 2016. Though a relatively young company, we are a team of passionate foodies committed to providing affordable and delectable food through our event catering services in Singapore.

Food Catering for Birthdays, Baby Showers, and Other Events

Planning an event can be loads of fun but also incredibly stressful. You’ll need to think about the guest list, decorations, beverages, menu, and activities. Add the time needed for food preparation on top of everything, and you best be ready for a very busy day.

A high tea menu makes the perfect complement for birthday parties, baby showers, other private celebrations, and even corporate networking events. As high teas are meant to be light and not overly filling, the comprise primarily of finger foods and other “grab-and-go” snacks. A main course option like rice, noodles, or pasta can be added for variety and to fulfil more voracious appetites. Le Rainbow’s   high tea menus boast an exciting range of Western, fusion, and local food.

Our Muis halal-certified kitchen is equipped with the latest automated equipment and top-quality facilities to help us prepare for your next event.

Reasons You Should Cater for Your Private Event in Singapore

If you’re thinking of hosting a private event for your friends and loved ones, questions on what to include on the buffet menu might be on your mind. Second only to the company, many will agree that food is really what makes or breaks a great event. Regardless of where you decide to host your gathering or how many people have been invited, hiring a quality catering service to serve delicious food will take your event to the next level. Read on to discover the top reasons why you should choose a buffet catering service for your private events in Singapore

1. Save Time

Instead of spending hours (or even days) planning your menu, shopping for ingredients, preparing to cook and finally cooking the food you would like to serve your guests, save your time and energy by hiring a catering service to do the work for you. As the host, you will likely be preoccupied with many other things like coordinating your guests and decorating the venue. Having to cook up a feast last minute seems like a recipe for a very long and tiring day.

2. Reduce Stress

Besides preparing, cooking, and delivering the food to your home or the location of your event, Le Rainbow Catering will also help set up catering tables to display your buffet spread and come back to collect the catering utensils and equipment after the event is over. With a professional caterer, you’ll be able to eliminate the stress of having to worry about washing up or the taste and quality of the food not being up to par.

Additionally, it is also important to consider any special dietary requirements of your guests. These include specific food allergies, intolerances, or restrictions. Le Rainbow Catering strictly serves MUIS halal-certified food to cater to Singapore’s multi-racial and multi-religious communities. Get in touch with us if you have any concerns regarding specific dietary requirements, and we’ll do our best to help you!

3. Enjoy a Versatile Menu

Offer your guests a stunning spread of dishes by engaging a buffet catering service. At Le Rainbow Catering, our chefs are experts in cooking up a variety of locally inspired Western and fusion food. If you’re invested in providing your guests a well-rounded menu, but the idea of cooking multiple dishes sounds daunting and laborious, the chefs at Le Rainbow Catering can help whip up an expansive selection of mouth-watering restaurant quality options for you and your guests.

Tailor your event menu from a selection of mains, poultry and meat, vegetables, comforting soups, savory finger food, sweet desserts, fresh pastries and more. Our halal buffet packages are specifically designed for a smaller group of guests.

4. Leave a Lasting Impression

Having professionally catered food for your guests conveys that it is especially important for you, the host, that your guests enjoy the generous feast that you’ve provided them with. Whether your private event be a birthday dinner, a gathering among friends, a more formal meeting with colleagues, or an event to celebrate a special occasion, a special event with valued guests deserves an equally special menu. The food prepared by Le Rainbow’s chefs will be sure to impress and leave lasting positive impressions on your event attendees.

5. Choose a Flexible Event Location

If you’re someone who prefers to host gatherings and events outside your home, a food catering service can add a lot of convenience to your life. Host your event wherever you want in Singapore and know that Le Rainbow Catering will deliver your buffet food to your chosen location exactly on time. You’ll no longer be constrained by the need to have your home kitchen close at hand or to ferry all the food that you’ve cooked in advance to your event’s location.

Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Buffet Catering in Singapore

The food catering service you choose for your wedding reception can make or break your once-in-a-lifetime event. There are many things to consider when choosing your wedding buffet menu. Chief among these considerations are the quality, flavour and appeal of the food you will present to your guests. At Le Rainbow Catering, we specialise in providing our clients in Singapore with delectable spreads of locally-inspired Western and fusion cuisine.

Read on for some of the things you should keep in mind when selecting your wedding reception buffet menu, and find out why Le Rainbow Catering should be your first choice when it comes to delighting your wedding guests with an unforgettable, halal-certified buffet feast in Singapore.

1. Consider Dietary Requirements When Choosing a Caterer

It is a matter of courtesy to ensure that your guests will be able to enjoy themselves at your wedding reception buffet. It would be unfortunate and highly awkward to realise on the day itself that you’ve forgotten to take into account the dietary requirements of a special guest, resulting in an empty stomach at best and hurt feelings at worst.

Some dietary requirements to consider include specific food allergies, intolerances or restrictions due to cultural or religious reasons. Additionally, people from different age groups will likely have different palates and preferences. Among the many excellent things about Le Rainbow’s wedding buffet catering are the various menu options available for you to choose from. You’ll be able to draw a balance between the types of dishes that make up your buffet spread and ensure that there will be something to suit everyone’s tastes. All food prepared by Le Rainbow Catering is halal-certified to cater to Singapore’s multi-racial and multi-religious community.

2. Consider the Aesthetics and Visuals Your Wedding Buffet

First impressions count. As the saying goes, we eat with our eyes. Buffet dishes bursting with flavour need visual appeal to entice your wedding guests to try them in the first place. At Le Rainbow Catering, we take special care to ensure that the presentation of our dishes reflect just how delicious they taste. Our professional styling team has much experience in tailoring buffet presentations to suit different wedding themes and aesthetics. Our eye for detail and culinary passion ensures there will be true harmony between spectacular visuals and quality cuisine at your wedding reception. Besides arranging your buffet layout to suit your venue, some of the other décor provided by Le Rainbow Catering include a reception counter, a photo album table, an arch backdrop, among other items.

We also offer buffet options featuring a live station for our in-house chefs to serve up appetising dishes on-site for even more excitement. Some of Le Rainbow’s best dishes prepared at our live stations include Roasted Lamb Leg, Traditional Popiah and Nonya Laksa.

3. Consider the Logistics, Location & Budget of the Buffet

Before you select your wedding reception buffet menu, you’ll need to have in mind the number of guests you will be inviting to the meal, the location the buffet will be hosted at, and the budget you hope to spend for this meal. Le Rainbow Catering has different buffet packages catering to minimum group sizes ranging from 40-80 people. We are committed to bringing delectable and inspiring food to our clients at a range of different price points. Our most affordable wedding buffet option begins at $18 per person and goes up to our most expensive option at $48 per person (prices before GST).
