I can't say enough good things about Kangaroo Kitchen. I was originally recommended to them by a few people in the wedding industry that said how good the food was. From the start working with Chef Roman was fabulous, especially with us planni...
ng the wedding from out of town. He answered questions and was super responsive to all of our emails. Out of all our vendors, he was the most responsive and communicative and I can't thank him enough for that. Additionally, he worked with us when one of our guests has a special diet and was able to accommodate it no problem.
Most importantly, our guests loved the food! We live in the DC area and are huge foodies, so one of the biggest things we wanted was fabulous food at our wedding. Kangaroo Kitchen did not disappoint. We had the cilantro lime shrimp, pork belly and roasted pear skewer, smoked bacon and Gouda cheese balls, and sun-dried tomato, rosemary, and cannelloni bean dip for appetizers and they were so good! The roasted vegetables, and roasted sweet potato and freekah salad (everyone loved the salad and raved about it after) were fabulous! And then the mains we chose of the beef brisket with apricot rice and the Chicken saltimbocca with the celery root mashed potatoes were both awesome! We decide last minute to add their Amaretto chocolate coconut balls (I could have ate a plate full!), which was a nice way to end the meal before cake and dessert. We had so many compliments after the wedding (and still are getting them) on the food. We could not be happier!
On the day of the wedding, we had an outside ceremony and dance floor at our venue, Camp Blodgett, set up with a tent and it ended up pouring during our cocktail hour. Ashley (our lead contact on our wedding) and the Kangaroo Kitchen staff helped move tables around quickly so our band could set up inside instead. They were awesome at stepping in and helping when we had an unexpected turn in weather. And I can't thank them enough for keeping dinner and clean-up flowing smoothly despite the unexpected change in the layout last minute. My day-of coordinator said they were one of the best catering companies she has worked with. Additionally, the family style meal was perfect for our venue and I am so glad Chef Roman suggested it. With the layout getting tighter with moving dancing inside, we definitely had the extra room because we didn't have a buffet set up.
Overall, I highly recommend Chef Roman and Kangaroo Kitchen for your caterer. The staff went above and beyond for us, the food was amazing, and even with last minute changes, they made sure everything ran smoothly making it a great wedding day for us! We cannot thank them enough!
