These serving dishes and small serving bowls, also called “monkey bowls” or “monkey dishes,” can be used to serve a wide variety of foods, both hot and cold. A restaurant tabletop needs serveware for its specialty items, from shrimp cocktails to tortillas.
For functionality, choose plastic or metal monkey dishes, as they are more durable than porcelain monkey bowls. If you are serving pizzas or fajitas, our oven-to-table serveware will keep them sizzling hot as they are brought to customers. For home dining, small porcelain dishes are worth keeping on hand, since they can be used for a range of items, from fruit salads to custards. Many of them can also be used in the oven. Throw the desserts in an attractive ceramic baking dish, let them cool, then bring them right to the table.
