Who else gets hungry when they drink? When they dance until the sweat stains have ruined a perfectly good dress shirt? When you’ve had a plated meal hours before and you didn't hide any dinner rolls in your napkin? Yeah, same. Thank goodness there is a cure for the munchies...even at a formal affair.
As a new-age Los Angeles based catering company, it’s our job to get creative with food. We like to ask ourselves, “If I had just taken 6 tequila shots, channeled my inner Bruno Mars on the dance floor, and started preparations for the event 7 hours ago with only a small dinner in my belly, what would I die to eat now?” Well, the answer is dope food done up even doper. Here are a few of the late night munchie items we feature at Vertigo Event Venue that can be added to any off-site catering menu, as well!
Sriracha Smothered Chicken Wings
Flaming Hot Cheeto Crusted Chicken Tenders and Cinnamon Waffle Skewers
Sweet Potato Garlic Fries like at the ball game (Caution: Make Out Sessions Not Recommended Post Consumption)
Harris Ranch Beef Sliders with Caramelized Onions, Sharp Cheddar, Chipotle Aioli and Arugula on Brioche
Loaded Grilled Cheese with Creamy Tomato Bisque Shooter
Wagyu Braised Beef Cheek Tacos with Calexican Pico de Gallo
Georgian Cheese Bread: Melted Cheese Mixture in a Warm Bread Boat Topped with a Runny Cracked Egg
Fried Mac and Cheese Bites with Rosemary Essence and Spicy Catsup
Food trucks are also a great option if your event leads straight into a place where the food truck is parked. If you have to take stairs or an elevator to get outside, you may want to reconsider the hassle for your guests. Here are a few of our favorite dessert food truck vendors in Los Angeles…
D.R.E.A.M. (Donuts Rule Everything Around Me) Donut Truck - dreamdonuttruck.com
Their truck looks as cool as the man behind the concept. They feature classic and custom flavors. Our faves: Matcha Green Tea Old Fashioned, Blueberry Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Rosewater Pistachio
Ridges Churro Truck - ridgeschurrobar.com
Churros, Soft Serve, and Cereal all in one cup. Need we say more? Our faves: Fruity Pebbles, Nutella Nut
Coolhaus - eatcoolhaus.com
The OG sweet truck trendsetters and the home to architecturally inspired ice cream sandwiches. These two chicks brought the dessert truck game into the mix back in 2009 and blew all of our minds. They have trucks roaming NYC, Dallas, and LA, with shops found in Culver City, Pasadena, and Dallas, TX. They’re ready to book as a truck or station set up at events. The best part of these gals is that they know the cravings will last far longer than the last dance at the party. So, in case you dont live in the three cities they pop up at, you can buy ice cream sammies, pints, and bars at over 1000 grocery stores nationwide!
As nostalgic and oddly addicting Jordan almonds are, they are a piece of our past. Fear not though, sweet party thrower. For the truly perfect favor to gift your guests, hook them up with some straight up munchies at midnight! Thank me later.
