    Delicious wedding food!

    Simply put: the food is amazing. Our menu consisted of Spinach and Cheese Empanadas, Chipotle Meatballs, Shredded Beef Colombian Arepas, Fusion Salad, Chimichurri Steak, Stuffed Chicken w/ cream sauce, Baked Plantains, and the Puerto Rican Rice and Beans. We are still getting compliments about how good our wedding food was, even from the pickiest eaters! Marcela and team were extremely easy to work and ensured the evening ran smoothly. Our only "complaint" is that they don't have a restaurant for us to enjoy the food all over again!

    Best wedding food ever

    Some main highlights from working with Cocina Fusion/ Marcela:
    1. They were referred to me by three brides, so already I had high expectations.
    2. For our NYE wedding, Cocina Fusion was the most all inclusive menu with the best pricing.
    3. Marcela was an absolute joy to work with. She was professional, responsive, accommodating, sweet, and engaging through the whole process.
    4. The waitstaff and bartenders were above and beyond. So attentive, so quick, and rolled with all of the punches.
    5. I had over 20 people ask me for leftovers, told me it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. And for the record, the food was BOMB. We weren't totally surprised this was the feedback.
    I recommend them over and over.

    Cocina Fusion is so amazing to work with! They have everything you want in a caterer in Chicago - amazing food, and even better service. I love that the owners are the ones who actually create your menu AND cook your food. It really gives them something special compared to everyone else. They have a fun flair and unique menu items but they will also CUSTOMIZE a menu to anything you want. I have seen them make blackened catfish and a biscuit bar (which was totally off menu for them!) for one of my clients and it was still incredible. I highly recommend them!
