Other caterers include Choz Confectionery (by Neo Garden), Papamama, Partridge Pear etc. I came across CooChiCoo which does score on packaging, but there is no way in hell I’d pay $10 for marshmallows, jellybeans and cookies in a mini metal suitcase.
Lulu’s won me over because of their affordable pricing, attractive boxes as well as the ease of use of their website and shopping cart.
They also use tortoise shell shaped ang ku kuehs for baby girls and pointed ones for baby boys in accordance with tradition (which I had no idea about before).
My relatives commented that the ang ku kuehs were especially tasty, which was a relief.The ang ku kuehs and swiss rolls also tasted good after reheating. The swiss rolls weren’t too sweet and it had coconut shavings and filling instead of buttercream. The ang ku kuehs were chewy, fragrant and not too sticky.
I was left with 6 boxes because I forgot to personally hand it out to everyone and only remembered after half of the guests left. -_- So smart. It became my breakfast for 3 consecutive days.
There are a variety of boxes to match your budget. My budget was budget, so I chose the most affordable selections at $6.50 per box. Luckily, they didn’t look shabby PLUS they tasted good. Overall, I was satisfied with Lulu’s and would gladly recommend them.
