YUM!!! This all sounds SO delicious, I can see why you're having a hard time deciding!

Your menu is very similar in style to ours. We are having a buffet of finger sandwiches, bruschetta and mini tartlet quiche things, finger food and mini bowls! You clearly have excellent taste!!! :lol:

My picks for your menu would be:

FINGER FOOD:
Cold options
Chef’s selection of traditional sushi
Hoi sin duck crepes with chilli plum in Chinese spoons

Hot options
Brie cheese and cajun risotto balls with sweet tomato relish
Chicken skewers with spicy peanut sauce

MINI BOWL FOODS
Cold Options
Cup sized Cajun chicken and walnut salad with cherry vinaigrette (GF,V)
Petite sand crab and wakame salad with pickled ginger relish

Hot Options
Cup sized butter chicken with mini pappadum and minted yoghurt
Cup size fish and chips with charred lemon

But it was a struggle, many yummy options there! It's hard to choose, but whatever you pick from that menu would be fabulous!

Also, make sure you take into account any special dietary needs - we have several vegetarians, a seafood allergy and a gluten intolerance at our wedding so had to be pretty careful with our picks! Bit confused about why the chicken salad has a V next to it, doesn't that usually mean vegetarian? Chicken's not a vegetable! :lol:

Good luck, let us know what you decide!

Just a thought,

If you choose the Laksa you might want to avoid the guests eating it.
It can be very messy and I would hate to be the one trying to get Laksa out of a white wedding dress.

But that said, I love a good Laksa.

it comes in a small cup i think, so most guests would probably sip it anyway. But will keep that in mind. Laksa is one of FH's fav foods so I am sure it will be in the choices :lol:

Just wanted to point out that you have HEAPS of seafood options in both the finger food and small bowl options.

As somebody that hates all seafood - there aren't HEAPS of options for me besides the lamb, risotto and things like that.

Just wanted to put that out there - I probably wouldn't eat alot there.
