Middle Eastern Catering

I am looking for a Middle Eastern, Lebanese, Isreali etc., restaurant to cater a smallish (30 max) lunch-time gathering. The gathering is going to be in Westchester near LAX so somewhere on the westside would be great. Looking for something tasty, not fancy. Big tubs of hummus, fattoush, and kebabs are right up my alley. I don't want to pay more than $10-15 per person.

  1. I've catered from Sunnin before -- in Westwood. I know that Sunnin's reviews have been mixed on the boards, but I've always been pleased.

    1. I've been to a couple of things recently that were catered by Papa Christos. Hummus, kabobs, salad, etc. I can't see it being too expensive. It's delicious, BTW. Papa Christos is on Pico and Normandy.

      1. re: schrutefarms

        you won't be getting fatoush from papa cristos.

      2. If Moura's is still in business, she is great.

        I moved out of the neighborhood and there was a rumor that she was going to close. I've also heard that she never followed through on it.

        Her little cafe is great. There is a menu but more likely, she'll size you up and bring you what she thinks you need.

        1. Shamshiri Grill for the westside. A bit further and south of Westchester, but Al Hamra Halal Cafe in Redondo Beach has insanely good Middle Eastern food.
