For a birthday party next month, I've been trying to think of good, but cheap (read grad student budget) takeout catering food. In the past, I've resorted to tamales or India Sweets & Spices samosas etc. for this sort of thing, but I'd like to branch out and am looking for ideas particularly in, say, Hollywood and points East as far as Pasadena and the SGV. One requirement is that vegetarian options are possible. Thanks for any ideas!
