Appetizers




Taste Drop-off / Pick-up Platters

When placing your order, please specify whether you wish to pick up the platters ‘hot’ or desire to heat them yourself at home. Items noted with an *asterisk are best heated onsite for top quality. Many items can be modified to accommodate dietary preferences and allergies, so please just ask!

For most events, we utilize disposable platters. We are also happy to use platters that you provide for us ahead of time. As a third option, Taste can also present your appetizers on our ornamental ceramic, metal & melamine house platters with the completion of a simple contract and $75 deposit. We can deliver anywhere in Albuquerque for an additional $60, or $75 for delivery and set-up.
