Michael catered a Christmas party for us and the food was spectacular! I'm not Greek but I have had a lot of Greek salads in my life and this was the best I ever tasted. We also served his Philly cheese steaks, chicken Romano sandwiches, chicken fingers (for the kids), and burritos, both chicken and veggie. The whole family loved the food and took home most of the leftovers. We moved to Monroe Township four years ago and found that the casual party food from most places is poor to mediocre.This is the best that I have found and we will definitely use Ahh la Carte again!
I have to thank Michael for providing a stellar menu and quick service to the guests of my father's 60th birthday. The weather turned pretty sour but Michael was accommodating and even offered to bring additional supplies like a tent and other food options to keep the guests happy. Even a week later many of the guests are still raving about Ahh La Cart and some are even looking to recommend him to friends!
Ahh La Cart definitely went above and beyond and we're looking forward to having them back for another event!
When was the last time you were at a party and the chef got a standing ovation from the guests? Well, that happened last night when Michael, Ahh La Cart's owner and chef, catered a backyard engagement party at my home. The food was delicious. Is there another word that means better than delicious? Because that's what it was. There was something for everyone and every taste from a 5 year old who didn't stop eating, to the vegans, vegetarians, lactose intolerants, my 95 year old mother and everyone in between. The eclectic menu Michael devised included Mediterranean food (greek salad, sides of grape leaves, olives and feta, thoughtfully on the side for our LI's) , Mexican food (he bakes his own tortilla chips and with the lime pulled pork, basmati rice and beans and pico de gallo, you've never had a tastier dish), an Asian chicken dish (chicken gai yung that had our guests running up to the table for 3rds and 4ths) and grilled vegetables from his own garden. The flavors were so complementary - it all melded together beautifully.
Also, Michael is a true sweetheart. Just a pleasure to deal with and as professional as they get. He arrived exactly when he said he would, brought all the necessary accoutrements, including things I didn't even think of, and personally supervised his assistant in making sure the set up looked beautiful and worked easily for our guests (from a buffet point of view.)
I wouldn't hesitate a NY second to recommend him for any catering needs. As a matter of fact, the engagement party was for my nephew and his soon to be bride. They want to hire him to cater their wedding!!
Thank you for making our house party a notch above fantastic. My guests were first off stunned with a food truck, then you turned out some amazing food. The Cheesesteaks were fantastic and the fries were over the top everyone raved! The other food was tasty too don't get me wrong, chicken fingers were a hit, hamburgers were juicy, and pulled pork was delish as well. You were so easy to deal with and accommodating it made it all the more pleasurable. I am sure you have had years of success and wish you many more.
Thanks again for making my party a HIT!!!!!

Stopped by here for some lunch while in town for work. The owner was extremely nice and really cared about serving tasty food. My husband had a cheeseburger and I had the southwest chicken cheesesteak. Both were very good along with the fries we got as a side. We will be back next time we are in town!
Absolutely fantastic. First off dealing with Michael leading up to my party was a breeze! He was super easy to get in touch with and accommodated all of my needs which even included my concerns for my guests with food allergies. As for the food-truly delicious, the cheese steak, sausage and pepper, grilled chicken wraps and the homemade dressings-- so yummy! They even grabbed fresh corn from the farm on the day of my party and that was a huge hit. I can't say enough about how efficient, accommodating and all around great this company was to work with!
