2017 Catering Trend: Street-Food Inspired Dishes

Image via Wedding Wire

One of our favorite new trends in catering is offering menus inspired by the easy-to-eat dishes of STREET FOOD! Artisan street food is a great way to bring variety and ethnic fusion to a meal, and to make your menus stand out among your competitors. Offering street food-style menus can also help your clients – instead of contracting with several food trucks for the evening, they can get all the dishes they need through you.

A street food-style menu is perfect for almost any type of event – corporate, wedding, fundraiser, you name it! We’ve put together some station menu ideas inspired by recipes from all around the world.
