Looking for great examples of Chinese food featured in movies and television as the creator of General Tso's Chicken, a famous Americanized Chinese dish,Peng Chang-kuei
, has passed away at the age of 98.
Let's Get Some Chinese Takeout Tonight
I've uploaded appropriate food images for the following soon to be added options:
Added images for Oldboy (2003); eXistenz; A Christmas Story; Seinfeld
There are a ton of movies with people sitting around eating Chinese out of boxes while discussing something in the plot of the movie i.e. young lawyers in A Few Good Men.
They all expertly use chopsticks, too.
I do remember that scene but there doesn't appear to be any screenshots of said scene online or in the IMDb image gallery. I'll keep that in mind but will need to figure out what image to use (or if I can find one another way).
From what I remember, in Hannibal, agent Clarice Starling is talking to Italian agent Agent Franco Benetti over the phone and is imagining him as a stereotypical Italian with mustache. In actuality, he is clean cut and is eating Chinese food with chopsticks out of a take out box.
Eat Drink Man Woman..... Made me hungry.
Our wedding meal was at the Twin Dragon..
Not on tv, thank goodness.
Good thread, Tsar.
It's not General Tso's chicken, but this scene is funny.

So, this is the Benjy Stone version
of “dinner and a movie”.
Deosn’t Cy’s office take on a
different feeling at night?
Yeah, it gets worse.
Okay. Here we go. These are all
dim sum, Chinese dumplings. These
are pan-fried. Those are steamed.
They’re good just with vinegar.
Chili sauce. Stay away from this
bay, a couple drops of this, your
tongue dials the fire department.
He picks up some chopsticks
You know how to use these?
To make a sweater, yes.
Okay. I’ll show you. Balance is
everything. ONe goes there, the
other one on top like that. NOw.
Do exactly as I do.
Benjy tosses the chopsticks and picks up a fork.

Waiting for Guffman will be added to the list and additional screenshots uploaded to the IMDb page. So when they update the images, I'll add it to the list.
There are no images of the food in Glenngarry Glen Ross but there are some stellar large screenshots of the restaurant (inside and out) online. Uploaded 4 of them to the GGR image gallery on IMDb.
