Purple Sage Catering

11 Feb 2011

We were invited to boss's house for CNY dinner last Friday after work. It's another annual affair and the caterer for the evening was the same as last year - Purple Sage. Food qualities were generally not bad with more hits than misses but I didn't like the way they presented the buffet spread. I find it pretty messy and not appealing. Hence, most of us preferred the food served from the chefs at the live stations. Fresh, piping hot and all tasted very good. Prata, tempura and laksa all fared above average. I didn't take many photos as I was busying with majong...lol and the lighting was very dim! Only manage to snap some photos of the food when I arrived where the sky was still bright at 6 plus in the evening.

Hi Ellena,

That's the problem with caterer, very inconsistent with their food. So far I find Neo Garden is still the best.
