Piece of cake much? Everybody loves pretzels after all.

Pizza

That’s a super easy and popular option as well. You can either order a few family-sized pizzas from your favourite pizza place, or pass by the nearest local bakery and grab a box of mini pizzas.

Sambosas

It’s an Arab’s favourite appetiser. You don’t have to make them at home, you can buy frozen sambosas at the supermarket and just deep fry them.

Veggie Platter
