Hi Chowhounds -- this is my first time here, so please be kind. :)
I have a girlfriend who is getting married on a budget in Carlsbad next summer. She is half Filipina, and is looking to do a fun buffet style Filipino dinner for her wedding for somewhere around 100-150 people.
Thanks so far for all the leads on restaurants; Tita's Kitchenette, Manila/Tokyo, Villa Marina, Red Ribbon Bakery. I'd love to hear more about any of these places if you have the inclination.
Also, does anyone have any experience with a Filipino caterer in that general area? Or alternately, good or bad experiences with a Filipino catering menu at an event you've attended? We're starting from scratch and don't have much experience with the cuisine or event planning, so any info would be appreciated.
Thanks for being such an amazing resource. I haven't been able to find this kind of detailed, quality information anywhere else.
