Help please Chinese delivery near USC

Please help a mom miles away from a freshman daughter with a horrible cold days before final exams.
Here I sit in the bay area and if I wasn't afraid of being laughed at, I would be on the first plane to LA. But, you can help to keep me at home by giving me a place I can have chicken noodle type soups/hot and sour/ or other good broth type soups delivered to my daughter for lunch and/or dinner tonight and tomorrow. She lives across the street from the campus. Could you please make some suggestions. Thank you so much.

  1. Understand your concern, but you'll be hard pressed to find anything Chinese near USC except for Panda Express or a similar type of fast food steam table Chinese food restaurant. I also doubt any kind of soup would be delivered hot.

        Thank you so much for your replys. Hoping to find some place that will deliver a soup. She does have a microwave. Thanks again-

          Rice Garden is in a food court in the center of campus and I'm almost 99% positive they don't deliver... neither does Yoshinoya which is along one edge of campus...

        2. Hillel (jewish student group) offers free chicken soup with Matza ball delivery to students on or close to campus.

            This is terrific-do you have to belong to the Jewish Student group? I am sure she would love the Matzo soup and would be happy to pay for it. I will have her check that out. Thanks for info.

          2. Check out this site for restaurant deliveries to USC: http://www.campusfood.com/Campus.asp?...

            1. I've had meetings w/Chinese delivery (working w/your thread title) from Wok on Fire, which is very popular with the faculty in my department.
              1447 S La Cienega Blvd
              Los Angeles, CA 90035
              (310) 289-5168

              Can't say I'm a big fan of their food, but they probably have soup and they do deliver... hope your daughter is feeling better now anyway!

                Thanks so much for the reply-found Wok on Fire using Los Angeles Menu Pages and ordered three soups last week-Miso,Hot & Sour, Wonton- and they delivered to campus with a small delivery charge. Daughter said the soups were comforting and she was able to reheat in microwave. I ordered some more food for roommates to make the order cost effective for delivery and the group gave it a thumbs up. Although college students studying for finals are probably not the most reliable judges of good food. Thanks again.
