Presented by CaterSpot
New online catering platform CaterSpot.hk claims to have solved the age old conundrum of how to actually make co-workers want to hangout. What’s the answer? Food and booze, of course! They’ve put together a collection of Office Party Packs to inspire work events you won’t hate, from slap-up beers and pizzas to fancy sashimi platters and gourmet canapés. Some packages even come with live stations, where expert staff elegantly serve up dishes and drinks for an added touch of luxe.
Here at Coconuts HQ, we can’t wait to get a cocktail station (and bartender complete with obligatory tattooed forearms) into the office for a little #ThirstyThursday action. See some of our other favourite choices below:
THE CROWD PLEASER
Cedele Party Platters
Serving up classic comfort food with a twist – there are no trans fats or artificial ingredients here – Cedele Party Platters promise grub that’s both wholesome and delicious. They’ve got packages for sweet lovers (hello Mini Muffin Box!) and more substantial bites, like the Slider Party Box. Burgers that small contain no calories anyway, right?
15 items to choose from – Platters from HKD17.5 per head – Order exclusively on CaterSpot
EAST MEETS WEST
Zebratasty Office Catering
These guys put big flavour in small packages, combining Western and Asian delights into bite-sized party packages. Don’t miss the Thai-Viet Platter with Tomato Chilli Dip or the Tandoori Chicken Skewers. But beware — the mint mayo dip is like crack!
22 items to choose from – Platters from HKD25 per head – Order exclusively on CaterSpot
ISLAND VIBES ON WEEKDAY AFTERNOONS
Pololi Hawaiian Starters and Cocktails
Turn the boardroom into a tropical oasis with the fresh and zingy fare from Pololi, a Coconuts HK office fave. No passports are required for the Piña Coladas, Mai Tais and more that will be shaken and stirred onsite by one of Pololi’s or Honi Honi’s skilled bartenders. You can even order flower leis and hula skirts. Aloha to that!
Six packs to choose from – Packages from HKD65 per person – Order exclusively on CaterSpot
BOOZY AFTERNOONS IN
Y Cocktail & Mocktail
Take after work drinks to a whole new level with 10 different party packs from Y Cocktail & Mocktail. Classic and creative cocktails, such as Rose Kisses and Cucumber Martinis, are served alongside refreshing mocktails for the strong-willed and weak-livered, all presented in striking glass bottles. Y not?

Jacomax Party Packs
It’s been said before, you can never go wrong with the classics, and that’s exactly what you get at Jacomax. Packages start at HKD65/pax if you’re going for good old fashioned pizza and beer, or class it up (and annoy your workmates) by ordering risotto instead. Don’t we get enough rice already in this city?
Five packs to choose from – Packages from HKD65 per person – Order exclusively on CaterSpot
Fancy a fancy Friday? Do as the French do and unwind with cheese, tarts, sandwiches and of course wine from Monsieur Chatté, arguably Hong Kong’s cutest French shop. Choose between packages starting at HKD35/pax, and live la vie en rose, if only for one fine afternoon.
Eight packs to choose from – Platters from HKD19.17 per person – Order exclusively on CaterSpot
K-POP OF FLAVOUR
K-Roll’s Office Pack is a healthy feast that comes in at HKD50 per person. With Bulgogi rolls, Tuna Salad, Crab Salad and drinks, there’s a little something for everyone, including the gluten and carb-free crowd. You can also order some DYI stations and get k-rolling with your colleagues at the office.

Tulsi Office Party Menu
Heat things up in the office with a package from Tulsi Indian Restaurant. Spice lovers can go mad on the Hot Snacks Platter, while the rest of you devoir the Barbeque Platters and gorge on Garlic Prawns and Chicken Tikka. Just don’t forget to feign interest in office chatter.
Eight packs to choose from – Platters from HKD19.80 per head – Order exclusively on CaterSpot
JAPANESE, IF YOU PLEASE
Urawa Office Party Menu
Fish out your fancy pants and go for a spread of Japanese delights. Boost your team’s brain power with sashimi and sushi rolls, and ensure their bodies won’t waste away with the ever-popular tempura platters.
10 packs to choose from – Packages from HKD39.7 per head – Order exclusively on CaterSpot
STAY IN THE EUROZONE
Entertaining on a budget? Your boss will love you for it. Another all-natural favourite, Pumpernickel Catering brings a selection of European dishes straight to the office for a simple, elegant and great value meal, any day (or night) of the week. Be sure to order the quiches, sausages and seafood platter.

Now that we’ve whet your appetite, see the other 15 caterers that are cooking up incredible sharing platters, finger food and office party packs. CaterSpot even has someone available to live-chat with, but you’ll only need that if you’re feeling really confused (or lonely). New options are always being added, so the only bad part is that you’ll never want to leave the office again. Sorry, fam.
