The Star of Your Menu

Designing a menu isn’t an easy job! There’re several things you need to consider when shortlisting dishes before you land on the perfect combination. Undoubtedly, the most important item on your menu is the main dish you’ll be serving. It’s the star of your meal! Everything else on your menu is based around it.
