Kerbside Gourmet, or more affectionately known as ‘Kerby’, is Asia’s first social enterprise gourmet food truck. If you wanted to have something other than the usual buffet or feast, this unusual mode of dishing out food is perfect. Just a small warning though, conservative parents or relatives might not be used to the idea of casual street food at weddings and expect “traditional” food, so make sure that the bride and groom are prepared for such pressures, or that guests are ready for a unique matrimonial experience.
Their price ranges from $50-80 per person and every menu is customisable to the couple’s preference. As they do artisanal food at such events and keep quality high and ingredients premium, the quantity they produce is limited to between 80-150. Bookings should be made 2 months in advance, and are subject to the truck’s availability.
