This, I should say, is my favorite supplier. We had been looking for a good budget friendly caterer who can also decorate the venue to minimize our cost and here it is — Ma Del’s cuisine.
As a very hands-on bride, the caterer was one of the first major supplier that I researched and booked for the wedding. I saw this caterer from femalenetwork.com (http://www.femalenetwork.com/girltalk/index.php?topic=273731.0) and there were a lot of satisfied brides out there who recommended this caterer. I tried searching and learning more about this caterer while I was searching for other prospect supplier but given the price and the good reviews, we decided to go with Ms. Anj.
We paid a downpayment fee of Php 5000 to book the date. After a couple of months after, we decided to visit her place in Pasig to discuss the layout and the have a food tasting session. On that day, we were able to list down the food that we’ll be serving on our wedding and was also able to discuss the layout that we visualize for the venue. Plus point is that, she frequently caters to function rooms within Casa Manila Patio. 🙂
Details of payment:
Tiffany Package – Php 585/head for 130 pax = Total of Php 76,050
Upon food tasting – Php 20,000 (reservation fee to be deducted)
2 weeks before the wedding – Php 40,000
1 day before the wedding – Php 11,050
* Additional Php 1300 for the upgraded seafood menu (Php10 * 130pax)
LAYOUT – Bohemian Theme
All these were designed and conceptualized by Ms. Anj based on the discussion and requests that we had when we met.

We personally highly recommend Ms. Anj if you are looking at a budget friendly caterer. I didn’t give this supplier a perfect 10 mainly because she was unresponsive at times and she has limited communication channels. She will be able to respond immediately if you call her landline number and if she’s at home. Here are some of her contact details:
Landline number: 6413423
Mobile number: 09167802705 (Ms. Anj)
