Inexpensive food for office party? (Scar, Markham area)

Hello, what inexpensive food options are there to feed a group of people in an office?

Can anybody think of other options? Basically looking to pig-out and be equal or cheaper vs. doing said Pizza Pizza. Cheap catering?

I was also thinking of ordering some Chinese food party tray. anyone has a specific place to suggest for bulk tray fried rice, fried noodles etc.. Thanks~

If you are somewhat close to a Chinese food court you can order fried rice, fried noodles in bulk with bbq meats.

That is way more satisfying than pizza

I also like ordering large trays of briyani, chili/garlic chicken, pakoras, etc. Lots of Indian and Hakka options in Scarborough to choose from!

Parkway kitchen for Chinese takeout tray, their fried chicken is also pretty good. They also only use white meat for chicken dishes

Located inside the plaza beside city of Richmond Hill building attached to Sheraton parkway

Dragon center on Agincourt. The food court have very cheap Chinese food take out there. One meal order will last you two meals for like $7. Order fast before they shut down for good.

I second that, good food, good prices and good portions.

To be clear, they use white chicken for their stir fry chicken dishes, and use cut up fried chicken (dark meat) for chicken dishes that call for battered chicken (kung pao, hakka chili chicken, etc) . All good tasting and good value, just setting expectations.

As @StatsGuy said, coupled with their sign at the counter and personal experience ordering. Dark meat from the leg or the inner thighs would be obvious and the top of the thighs can pass as white meat at first look, but the texture gives it away too. I am inclined to believe they do use white meat for the stir fry dishes.

Oh one other choice is the T&T at Warden/Steeles. Lots of choices, can also pick up their large sushi platters, for a reasonable price.

if you think it's white meat then good for you but I can't tell when it's sliced thin. Actually dark meat is tasty as well and much cheaper than buying the full breast. Leg and tights are as low as $1- $2 a lbs vs $4 for white meat.
