Tayybeh Catering

SFU and MECS are pleased to offer Tayybeh Catering as an option for your catering needs.

Tayybeh--the Arabic word for “kind” and “delicious”-- is a social enterprise and full service caterer that employs and empowers newcomer and refugee women from Syria and other countries. Since 2016, Tayybeh has been bringing award-winning Syrian food to happy customers across the Lower Mainland. What started as a pop-up dinner series has turned into an operation that provides incredible newcomer women chefs financial security and social integration in their new homes in Canada. In this time, Tayybeh has won numerous awards including Western Living’s “Foodies of the Year,” the Georgia Straight’s “Best of Vancouver,” and the City of Vancouver’s “Excellence Award,” the Telus Small Business Award and is the subject of several documentaries. One of the fastest growing catering services in the city, we are proud to be an all-women operation that is able to support more remarkable newcomer chefs who have been recognized by some of the city’s top chefs, including Vikram Vij. At Our chefs’ mouth-watering recipes have earned them rave reviews from food critics and customers alike, including reviews in Saveur, Forbes, and The Globe and Mail to name a few. Tayybeh will be the subject of a forthcoming cookbook from Penguin Random House.

We are proud to partner with SFU to bring our carefully curated, authentically crafted, cooked slowly, and beautifully presented food by our top chefs for all dietary preferences. And our SFU Catering Menu is our most diverse, rich, and extensive to date, featuring the most popular and delicious Syrian recipes prepared by our chefs.
