Mitzuyan Kosher Catering has captured all the Middle Eastern flavors in its specially designed Middle Eastern Menu. The meal can be served family style or individually plated.
Mitzuyan offers kosher catering in Toronto with a twist.
There are three of four kosher laffa restaurants in the city of Toronto which offer Middle Eastern cuisine, but none of them have the expertise to cook for a banquet of more than two hundred people.
