An event without food would be pretty boring, and since not everyone is gifted in the fine art of cooking, it’s good to know that there are plenty of options out there in terms of food caterers. If you’re planning an event and want to ensure your guests have the best food there is, then you may want to engage one of Singapore’s Top 10 Food Caterers. The results here were derived following our recent poll.
1) Amici Events and Catering
Amici is a boutique caterer that is headed by people well-versed in culinary arts, thus resulting in a menu with variety. Dishes featured are diverse, with both Eastern and Western influences. Their services go beyond the usual buffet spreads, with fine dining courses, personal chefs and even butlers for hire as well as stations for any function. With an impressive roster of clients and the awards to back up their claims, you will not regret engaging them.
In addition to catering to your events, you can even hire a chef from Clubvivre as your private chef. All you have to do is select the menu and budget you prefer from their website, as well as when you expect them. Once payment is made online, just wait. The chef will arrive at your place at the specified time, with ingredients needed. They will even clean up the kitchen once the meals have been cooked, so all you have to do is enjoy the food.
3) Fine Palate Catering
Heather Barrie founded Fine Palate, and it is her experience as a caterer that shaped the brand as it is today. Her background and ideas are coupled with the technical skills of Chef Jason, who works with her. Services include catering for buffets, corporate events, fine dining, cocktail parties, working lunches, casual lunches and more. Orders and enquiries can be made online via their website.
Gustos is a certified Halal caterer, so it is great if that is a requirement for you. If you prefer your catered food to appear with more pomp and splendour, Gustos can help as they have a network of contacts who can spruce up events with decorations and floral arrangements. In addition to wedding catering, they can also provide for private events, such as tea or cocktail hours. Theme buffets are also an option, as is Indian food. You can request for a price quote online, or call them to find out more.

Their extensive menus are available to view online, but be sure to call if you require additional information.
6) How's Catering
How’s Catering is considered a veteran of sorts, having been in existence since 1991. Still, they have moved ahead with the times to create a contemporary dining experience, and are admittedly more flexible these days, when it comes to requests. Quality, hygiene and artistry all play a vital part in their arrangements. From delightful local treats to international dishes, they can dish up a variety of meals to suit your event or theme. Give them a call or message them on Facebook to find out more about their pricing and dishes.

Purple Sage operates with their own 3Ps, Prestige, Perfection and Passion, which gives an idea on their values as a company. Separate menus are available depending on the type of event.
