Pancit, Chicken Adobo, Lumpia and Rice is amazing. It's the best we ever had.

Shirley and Ben recently catered my 40th birthday. I live in San Francisco but I held the party at my brothers house in Arroyo Grande since I have family and friends scattered between San Francisco and L.A.

Since I live out of the area, I needed a dependable cater to handle my party. The service from "A Passion for Food" was better than I could have dreamed. Shirley and Ben went above and beyond and made preparing and having the party easy and worry free. Shirley is much more than a caterer, every conversation put my mind at ease that the event was in good hands and she paid attention to all of the details. The day of the party was stress free for set-up and the meal was delicious (try their fresh made lumpia, its amazing).

I would definitely hire "A passion for food” again.

I hired A Passion for Food to cater my mother's 75th birthday party.  We wanted a sit down dinner and to have everyone served instead of the traditional buffet style I was used to.  Shirley met with me several times before the party to make sure everything would turn out just like I wanted.  We had over 100 people there and it was wonderful!  One of my concerns was to have that many people served at the same time and it was important to me that the food be served hot.  It went perfectly!  The food was delicious.  Shirley is very organized; all her servers were dressed very nice and were very pleasant and helpful. 
If ever I need to cater a party again, large or small, I would use A Passion for Food without hesitation.  I was truly pleased and impressed.

"A Passion for Food" catered my son's wedding reception.  We did not have any of her specialties and instead they bar-b-qued chicken and tri tip for us with green salad and macaroni salad and bread and the food was fabulous!  The crew was very professional and friendly.  I would use them again for any of my catering needs.
