And you don’t need to worry about having to pick from a wide list of caterers—we’ve listed down the various types of catering packages and food sets for you, particularly those with a decidedly Singaporean twist for the occasion.
#1 Wing Zone’s 100 Wings Platter
Since there’s a high chance that everyone will be crowded around the television watching the National Day Parade, you definitely must add wings to your menu. You can get a whopping 100 in one sharing platter from Wing Zone via Caterspot, which allows you to pick a total of four different wing flavours from their menus. Their signature flavours include Liquid Gold (traditional honey mustard) and Honey (sweet honey and smoky BBQ). But if you’re opting for something more local, you can add Rasa Rendang (fragrant Rendang spice blend) to your options. (For those living in the West looking for smaller sets, you can get Wing Zone from local delivery app Foodpanda instead!)
