Need Cheap Chinese Catering in Alhambra

p

Looking to get Fried Rice and Some Chow Mein to serve 20-30 people. Also finger food type items but has to be Chinese and has to be somewhat good and CHEAP. Egg rolls, Fried Shrimp or Chicken would be good. Another thing, it has to be in close proximity to the Sam Woo on Valley in Alhambra. I am picking up a whole suckling pig at 9:00 AM so food would have to be ready at that time as well. I was thinking the Yum Cha Cafe and getting a bunch of dim sum but I still need veggies and the Rice/Noodles. Asked Sam Woo about ordering their Fried Rice, 25 bucks for a small tray for Rice with Peas and Carrots seemed a bit much. I need it by this Saturday Sept 4.

    Ask at the Yum Cha Cafe on Atlantic. They got a full kitchen there that I rarely see used.

      Isn't there also a Chinese fast food place in the SG Superstore foodcourt area?

            Oh Ok Thanks. Wasnt sure if Ipse meant a different restaurant. I was just there last week. The lady that helped me just chucked my food into the styrofoam boxes with such disdain that I didnt feel like going back anytime soon. I havent had a problem with them before. But alas, no time to be picky at this point.
