O’ngo Food Communications has done specialized tours for people with special food needs such as Muslims, Jewish, and Hindus. Our guides carefully screen restaurants and ingredients to make sure there are no disagreeable products. Our chefs have been trained in knowledge of what ingredients that can be used and how they should be properly handled for people with special dietary requirements. Also, our cooking classes sources Halal meats. We also make sure that the ingredients in the sauces and our vegetables are top quality.For those that have very strict dietary requirements we can purchase new cooking pots and pans, cooking utensils, and even plates.

We have also catered, hosted dinner parties, and cooked for events that have special dietary requirements. Our chefs have been invited overseas to cook at special events as well. For questions and inquiries, contact us at [email protected]
