Please help me feed 15 people for lunch on Sunday in Torrance area--W. 190th & 110 freeway

I need to provide lunch for about 15 people at a workshop this Sunday on W. 190th St. just off the 110 freeway. Any deli in the area that will deliver good sandwiches or pasta? Or any good pizza delivery? Thank you in advance for your help.

  1. El Pollo Inka. Its a peruvian rest. but their specialty is roasted chicken. This place is so good its insane. The ceviche, loma saltado, chifa (fried rice) papa a la huancaina are some of my favorites. they can accomidate a large party and the prices cannot be beat for the quality of food you are getting. buen provecho! They cater too.

    1. What about Paradise restaurant. I'm sure they would put together a nice spread for you. It's right near where you will be. I'm not sure if they deliver though. There's also a Burnt Tortilla on Artesia not too far from there--fair Mexican food. In Gardena on Gardena boulevard there is a Giuliano's---excellent Italian deli. Their # is 310-323-6990

      1. Try King's Hawaiian Local Place - they offer Hawaiian fare + sandwiches. They are on Western Ave near 186th. I doubt that they deliver though, but it doesn't hurt to call and ask.


        You can also try Alpine Cafe in the Alpine village market. They do catering. They are just off the 110 and Torrance Blvd. They might deliver.

        and New York Deli on Sepulveda near Crenshaw inTorrance. Good corned beef sandwich and the prices aren't bad at all. I'm pretty sure that they deliver.

        1. I'm guessing that you don't want to take your group out for lunch but to have someone cater? Call Guilliano's for Italian take out or Cherrystones in Gardena for Asian. We used to hold our business after hours affairs at the Holiday Inn on Vermont south of 190th or Paradise on 190th and Vermont if you plan on going out. Real fancy would be at the Home Depot Arena where there is a banquet restaurant for the "rich". Been there only once and there were no prices listed. The food was really good.

            We will be on a budget so no fancy fare. Thanks for all the nice suggestions.
