About Mon Ami Catering

We are dedicated to creating amazing food and supporting the local farmers and community!

A lot of people ask me how I started cooking... I was the grandchild who asked to do the dishes so I could be close to my Grandmother. I was able to witness her magic in the kitchen.

I loved learning how to make magnificent and loving meals by watching her create. My Grandmother taught me flexibility and creativity in the kitchen comes from within. She also showed me that an amazing healthy meal can be brought to the table in a moment's notice.

I’ve been cooking 15 years for a myriad of different groups and situations in Kona, Hawaii, and the surrounding Hawaiian Islands. Weddings, retreats or parties, I love the creative process that goes into making each event special and unique! Most of all I love introducing people to healthy organic food and the satisfaction of proving that healthy food can be extraordinarily satiating and nourishing.

Supporting local and organic, means supporting our planet, our communities and our future!

You can contact Mona at 808-345-4764. We look forward to serving you!

    The Best Caterer on the Island

    Mona and her team were fantastic! She was flexible, accommodating, and was focused on every detail. And of course, the food was absolutely delicious! Mona even ensured my husband and I were served and able to try everything she prepared for our guests. We highly recommend Mona and would use her again for future visits to the Big Island!

    Incredible Catering

    We had the pleasure of having Mona cater our wedding in Kailua-Kona. Mona was amazing to work throughout the whole process from the first phone call to the day of the wedding. She thoughtfully helped us refine our menu and worked well within our budget for catering around 40 people. Folks at our wedding consisted of primarily diehard foodies, but along with a few picky and less adventurous eaters. Striking a balance between those guests were very easy with Mona’s options for food and her eye for detail.

    The wedding consisted of a cocktail hour followed by a buffet-style dinner. For cocktail hour, we opted for the tiger prawns with mango chili lime sauce, fresh island fruit platter, gourmet cheese and crackers platter, and assorted poke with wonton chips. The fruit and cheese platters were super colorful and the prawns and poke were freshly prepared. For dinner, we had fresh island fish with tropical island salsa, mashed purple sweet potatoes, macadamia nut ginger green beans, and island sweet bread and butter. For dessert, we had a collection of mini lilikoi-key lime pie, haupia pie, chocolate-coconut pie, and macadamia nut rum cake. Everything was ridiculously good! We've had the opportunity to eat at a lot of good local restaurants through previous visits to the island, but Mona’s food was still the best we’ve had in all our visits. Everyone went back for seconds and third servings cause the food was so good. It’s been about a month since all our family and friends have had Mona’s food and they’re still talking about how awesome it was! It is hilariously problematic as most of our standards for food had been significantly raised with Mona’s food.

    Mona’s crew was great to work with. They were able to prepare most of the food fresh on-site and they left the kitchen they used in a cleaner condition than when they started. An extra crew member even stayed a bit longer to help clean up towards the end of the wedding night. Mona also took the time to personally make plates of food for us (the bride and groom) to make sure we had gotten enough food. We wished we could chat with her more, but we were super busy with all the wedding events! Mona is a very heart-warming person who expresses her creativity through her passion for food. Don’t hesitate to reach out to her if you’re thinking about having her cater your event! You won’t regret it!

    AMAZING food and experience!

    I must start this review by saying BEST FOOD EVER!
    My husband and I got married in my hometown, Kona, in September. We reached out to Mona earlier this year based on friend recommendations to see if she was available for our wedding. She responded to us quickly, and was so helpful getting us an idea of pricing. She even gave suggestions on replacements to help us reach our goal per plate cost. Additionally, my husbands mother and sister have celiac, so gluten free items were also a must.
    We made a few adjustments over the next few months, and she was helpful during that entire process. Leading up to our wedding, my parents hired her to cater a couple of smaller events, and they had nothing but rave reviews, which helped me feel even more comfortable.
    When it came to the wedding, we had a cocktail hour with a fruit platter, cheese and crackers, and ahi tartar on won ton crackers. Every single item on there was not only beautifully displayed, but delicious. I've lived in Hawaii my whole life and those Ahi won tons were to die for. My husband and I even had our own beautiful little platter set aside for us to enjoy during photos.
    For dinner, we did buffet style and chose huihui chicken, kalua pork, and short ribs, with sweet potatoes, green beans, and salad. All of the food was amazing, but that kalua pork, like the ahi, was the best kalua pork I've ever had. I wish I had ordered even more, it was so good we could have eaten leftovers for days.
    For our family with celiac, Mona actually provided an entire tray of gluten free crackers for the cheese, set aside some ahi without the wonton crackers (while using gluten-free soy sauce for the seasoning), and made sure the label all the gluten free selections. Plus, when coordinating the dinner menu with Mona, the entire menu ended up be naturally gluten free; it made everything so special for my future in-laws.
    Almost two months later and my husband and I, as well as our guests, are still commenting on how amazing the food was. To top it all off, Mona is the sweetest person. I didn't get much of a chance to talk to her at the wedding, but she has a personality that's as beautiful as her creations.
    This review is long, and I sadly don't have any of my professional photos, just a few informal ones from the cocktail hour, but trust me, you wont regret working with Mona and her team!
