Let us cater your next event. We’ve catered over 500 events, serving up to 1500 people at a time. If we’ve catered for you as Pork Ninjas, we’re still serving the same great food, cooked in a bigger kitchen.
Contact us and together we will build the perfect menu. Your guests will rave about the competition-quality barbeque.
Some of the events we’ve catered:
- Bridal showers
- Weddings (LOTS of weddings)
- Summer barbecues
- Product launches and media previews
- Customer/client appreciation parties
- Staff parties
- Wrap parties
- Beer and wine pairing
- Popup events
All our meat is local and fairly raised, hormone free and delicious. We use only sustainable, rainforest alliance certified sugar maple charcoal.
What We Offer
We arrive with hot, fresh food that’s almost ready to serve. Our thermal food carriers keep food hot for hours!
This means that we can maintain quality food, whether your event is at the other end of the city or at the other end of the province. It also means that we do not require access to a kitchen (although a kitchen is a nice-to-have).
Meat is pulled and sliced at the last possible moment in order to retain its quality.
Lots to Choose From
In addition to what’s on our restaurant menu, we offer appetizers such as Greek Salad Rolls, Smoked Salmon & Chèvre Maki Rollups, and bacon-wrapped meatballs. Main course items include Whole Smoked Turkey and our famous Seafood Boil. (Based on the season.) While we’re meat-focused, we’re dedicated to serving great food, and that includes plant-based items. Guests who don’t eat meat can be accommodated.
We refuse to serve asparagus in September and corn in May. We suggest what’s in-season instead. In late summer, our Seafood Boil (including corn) is popular. It’s not just vegetables: We prefer our lamb in the spring. Local ingredients in-season taste better.
Local and Fairly Raised
All our meat is pastured / free range local and fairly raised, hormone free and delicious. We use Canadian sustainable, rain-forest alliance certified sugar maple charcoal. Beef or Chicken can be ordered “kosher style”. While we don’t have a certified kosher kitchen, we are happy to cook kosher briskets and chicken for a small additional fee.
Have van, will travel. We’re based in Toronto but have travelled as far as Sault Ste. Marie to cater a wedding, towing a brand new trailer.
We serve buffet-style and bring staff to manage the buffet table. We can hire or recommend servers and bartenders.
We can help you plan your event by recommending venues, staffing companies that provide bartenders and servers, dessert bakers, photographers, entertainment and more. In our years of catering events such as weddings and birthday parties, we’ve made many contacts. We even know a balloon animal guy who’s also a zookeeper.
What People are Saying
Some context to this thank you note: The event was held on the groom’s parents’ property. At the end of the weekend, the groom’s mother hugged us goodbye with positive words. Bourbon accompanies us to out-of-town caters, staying out of the way in comfort and only joins the party if/when appropriate. Most of our clients and their guests fall in love with her.
We got permission to char the ground, which was essentially farmland that was going to be mowed after the weekend.
“Great Spread ”
“Hi Jason, I just wanted to say thank you again for the great spread you put on at our place on Saturday. Not only did you pull this together last minute but served a delicious meal, in the rain and in the dark with the mud and my dog at your feet. 🙂”

“Everything Went Perfectly”
“The seafood boil was a big hit – I’ve never seen so much seafood in my life, and I could tell that all my guests were quite impressed…To this day, I still laugh that Jason hunted us down and literally put food in our mouths so that we could relax for a few minutes and enjoy the event for what it was. Set up and clean up was efficient. The whole process was a joy. Thank you so, so much. I’m glad we went with you guys – it wouldn’t have been the same without you. I will ONLY recommend you to anyone looking for catering.

“The Best Wedding Food Ever”
“Jason + Pork Ninjas catered our wedding on Toronto Island and it was AMAZING. We keep hearing from people that it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had and Jason was such a pleasure to deal with, even with the Island being partially under water .”
-Wedding client, July 2017
“We hired Jason and his team to cater a backyard bbq at our home for a work even we were hosting. His food was top notch (and all Ontario raised) and he was a pleasure to have around. We will be recommending him and his delicious food to all our friends and colleagues. Thanks so much, Jason. You guys live up to your name!”
