My friend Debbie and her nephew Chef Jeremy have a new catering business called Deli San Honore. We ordered a Thai dinner from them for our group's Christmas party.
I don't think they have full catering service that supplies tables, chairs, etc since they just started but you can order food from them.
I was surprised how good the Pad Thai was. It tasted better than the Pad Thai I've eaten in several restaurants.
The bagoong rice was good too but I told Debbie I liked her atchi's (Jeremy's mom) version better which I tried many years ago.
Yes, the porchetta is not Thai but it was ordered just because we wanted to try it. The skin wasn't crispy anymore probably because the container was covered with foil. The flavors of the meat was delicious and it didn't need any sauce anymore.

My favorite was the satay and I took home the leftovers. :D

I swear everything was so good it was hard to stop at one plate. Ok I confess I had a second serving of Pad Thai.
Since we all love sweets there were other desserts too. I don't remember where this cake came from and I didn't bother asking since it was way too sweet. In short I didn't like it.
Always present are these suman (sweet sticky rice) that Elisa brought from her hometown of Butuan. They're the best suman ever!! Perfect texture, rich from coconut milk and just the right amount of sweetness.

We paired the suman with fresh, sweet mangoes and had a pseudo Thai dessert.

My gorgeous friends!!!
For Christmas Debbie gave us a baked ham that Jeremy made. I put the glaze myself and baked it for a few minutes.
I served this at our family's New Year's Eve party and everyone loved it. It's not salty and very tender. I've been eating the leftover ham in between wheat bread with a slather of mustard.
I asked Debbie if Jeremy also makes fresh corned beef and he does! The raw slab of beef brisket in it's curing liquid and spices arrived in a sealed plastic bag. I simply boiled the corned beef til tender which took about two hours. I also changed the water once midway so it won't be too salty. We ate it with boiled cabbage, potatoes and carrots.

The next day I put the trimmed corned beef in between rye bread and added French mustard for a wonderful lunch.
These are just SOME of the dishes you can order from Deli San Honore:
smoked fish pasta
cold cuts (sausages/local cheese)
herb roasted chicken
mix greens with raspberry vinaigrette
spaghettini with mushroom in truffle cream sauce
roasted turkey (with sausage/chestnut stuffing, sweet potato/gravy/dinner rolls)
mixed greens with pear vinaigrette
penne vodka with sausage
roast beef (half slab approx. 5 kilos) (with au jus/onion marmalade/mashed potato/Yorkshire pudding)
baked salmon (Dijonnaise)
baked fish in black bean ginger sauce (I've tried this and it's sooooo yummy)
Call them if you want to order just a couple of dishes or a whole dinner. I highly recommend the baked ham and fresh corned beef.
