Alternate drop service is where two menu dishes are chosen by the host in advance. People are served each meal, alternatively. E.g: beef, chicken, beef etc. Generally, diners are free to swap meals on their table is someone else is willing. Quite popular at large functions instead of a buffet style. Vegetarian guests, or those with dietary needs usually receive a different meal.
