Lunch catering ideas - E. LA or SGV areas

Open to all suggestions - Need catering for about 15 people for a lunch party at work. Also open to boxed lunch recommendations. Thanks in advance.

  1. You could always order huge platters of Chinese food - including, but not limited to - fried rice, thin noodles, beef and broccoli, vegetables, fish, tofu...from Chinese restaurants and fast food joints like Shau May.

        Looks interesting. Any idea on price? They don't seem to list it on their website.

          I've only eaten lunch there, and shopped at their cheese store annex. The food will run you about $6-9 per entree. Their prepared (read: frozen) entrees in the cheese shop are around the same price.

          I think they started out with an emphasis on catering, though, and could probably meet your budget. And they make awesome cupcakes!

          Thanks for the suggestion. It looks very similar to Hawaiian BBQ though, which we've had recently already. Thanks, though!

        2. I've spoken with the head gut at Babita and he was very flexable and had a great attitude in tailoring a catering menu to suit ones needs.
