Full disclosure, Chef Santi is a cousin of ours. When it came to catering our wedding, we didn't want to ask him and make him work, but nothing compared to the meal and offerings from Around the World Catering. They even travelled 2 and a half hours to our wedding in Ruidoso, NM. We apparently ran out of food during cocktail hour, which tells me everything was delicious! In addition to our main meal, they were able to accommodate a special request of a s'mores bar, which was a hit with our guests. Thank you Chefs Santi and Chris for putting together a delicious meal from start to finish for our special day!
Where to start....... Around the World Catering was amazing from start to finish. Chris Morill and his staff are very professional, attentive, courteous, and friendly. Right sense we saw them at a wedding expo two years prior to our wedding date we fell in love with their Grilled Watermelon Salsa with spicy lime tostadas. Their presentation was very well put together and they greeted us and started giving us information, I kept their brochure in my binder sense we knew for a fact we would like too consider a tasting with them. Once it got closer to our wedding date about 6 months prior I decided to start looking into the catering options we had and I immediately remembered Around the World Catering. I called and Chris Morill gave us some information and I was very surprised as he mentioned the tasting was free. Usually I had been given a price for other catering companies just too have a tasting. Chris and his staff put together two dishes for us and when we went for the tasting we were at awe with their cooking skills. We ended up loving them sense the beginning and decided to compare them to another catering company which was out of town in Albuquerque New Mexico, where our wedding would take place. Soon after an awful experience with them we decided too just go ahead and meet with Chris too discuss our choices and pricing for them to make the trip to New Mexico and cater for our wedding. We were stunned at the price they gave us considering they would make a trip out of El Paso and have a taco stand dinner for our rehearsal dinner a day prior to our wedding, and the dinner for the actual wedding as well. Without a doubt we reserved them them and we couldn't of been more satisfied with all of their hard work, and services. These guys are as humble as can be, and they won't charge you just to charge you, they have super affordable options too fit your budget and their cooking is superb. You can really notice that they love what they do, and it fits them perfect!
The food for our wedding was amazing. It tasted wonderful and was presented well. The service was wonderful too.
This catering company came to my wedding from out of town and were very reasonable in price. The food was good too.
I was really excited about this vendor. I met them at a Bridal event and they seemed really interested in working with my budget and providing a great service. In the end I found that this was all a facade. They appear to have taken on so much work that the little details have all fallen through the cracks. They arrived way to early to the event even though they were told a specific time. The set up and re-heating of the food seemed to take a ridiculous amount of time. The food at the wedding was just ok as far as taste compared to the food we had been provided in the tasting. Not to mention that the wrong amount of food had been made. We having been waiting more than a month to be contacted by Around the World Catering in regards to the fact we paid for more food then was served but have yet to hear anything and I suspect its because any sort of reimbursement is feared. I hate that I was disappointed in this vendor, I had been very excited throughout each meeting, the tasting, and all contact we had after. The day of is what was a huge disappointment and that was the only time that mattered.
Chris and Santi were awesome to work with. We came in with some crazy ideas that they had never done before, and they completely rocked it. So many people told us this was the best wedding food they'd ever had, and I have to agree :) They made the entire process so easy and stress free, and we enjoyed it all! The price was also amazing for how high quality of food and service it is.
