You don’t have to be a “foodie” to get it.
There are scenes in movies that make you hungry, and for very specific foods.
Just a few examples.
And I have to include what might be my all time favorite. I have been known to go an extra 40 blocks on the subway in New York City, just to get a Gray’s Papaya hot dog.
The only remaining store is at 72nd and Broadway. It is worth the trip.
In the movie Fools Rush In, Matthew Perry’s character understood.
So did Selma Hayek.
So did his mother who shipped them to Las Vegas as a birthday surprise.
He only used 4 words to describe the taste.
“Oh…Oh… Oh… Oh.”
Time for a road trip ?
yumm this all makes me think, breakfast!
For real, Lynn. I should have posted a warning ! ☺
yes! I wanted each meal haha! Funny how you can crave box noodles (our name for them) after a cute movie!
Lady and The Tramp spaghetti…
Oh oh oh oh
A sweet, iconic image, for sure. ☺
Yum. Chocolat did it for me 🙂 But that French Onion Soup? I know what’s for dinner tonight!
It was always a favorite of my daughter. I’ve seen her order it so often, and it looks like a meal to me ! ☺
This post gave me the hungry horrors, Van! Lunch can’t get here soon enough.
I know. It’s about “brunch” time here, and I was going to post the Twister video clip with the steak and eggs…but it always sends me to the frying pan, no matter the time of day. Sorry, Rob. I think ??? ☺
Steak and eggs….yummmmmmm! I may have to take an early lunch…or a late breakfast. 😀
Oh, you must see “The Big Night” with Stanley Tucci and Tony Shaloub. That will make you hungry too.
I know that movie, and thought of including it here. It’s a good one. Thanks, Erica. 💖
Kudos for mentioning Gray’s Papaya, although I regret to inform you it’s NOT my favorite hot dog!
I spent a lot of time in Michigan, the home of the original Greek Coney Island dog…also a favorite. With Gray’s, it’s not the dog for me, it’s that topping that is unique. Thanks, Gnome. p.s…your favorite ??? ☺
The chili dogs at Podnuh’s, a defunct eatery in San Antonio were out of this world, but my all-time favorite is the green chili hot dog at Blake’s Lotaburger, a New Mexico outfit.
There is a BBQ- topped dog here in Pennsylvania, but it doesn’t compare to the chili dogs from the Southwest…lacks spice. Thanks for sharing. ☺
I just watch the movie Chocolat and I wanted to make a cup of that chocolate drink with chile pepper ever since. So true I can’t tell you how I love to snack when I’m watching a great movie.
So many things in that movie got to me, besides Johnny Depp. ☺ Thanks for the visit and comment. 💝
I’m not a “foodie,” Van, and I still love food associations with movies! Just saw “Burnt” with Bradley Cooper, and WOW… Incredible dishes! Your Monday post refreshing and delicious!!💛 Elizabeth
Haven’t seen that one, it’s on my list. Cooper in the kitchen ….how could it go wrong ? Thanks, Elizabeth. 💕
Oooh, onion soup. Sounds just perfect. And I even have that recipe!
Love it. But, to be honest, if you melt cheese onto crusty bread, I will eat it no matter what is underneath. ☺
I lived in Switzerland for 5 years. So melted cheese and bread? Oh yeah.
Sounds like something is trying to get your attention 😀
It does, doesn’t it ? Or maybe I just need to stop writing before breakfast ?? Thanks, Val. ❤️
Why haven’t I ever heard of Grays? I have to get there next time I’m in the city. What makes them so good? How are made? The best I’ve ever had was at Rutts Hutt in New Jersey. The deep fry them and make the best homemade relish.
The dogs are grilled, but the sweet onion sauce is what makes them special. Vidalia onions, butter, tomato paste, tabasco, corn syrup, garlic, spices. Papaya refers to the juice served with them. They are also one of the cheapest meals in Manhattan. ☺
My mouth is watering, Van! I guess I haven’t lived yet, cause I haven’t had a Gray’s Papaya!!!
There’s still time for you, Kelly. ☺
Well thank goodness! xo
Thanks…..I am hungry now! 😉
You’re welcome, and I’m sorry ??? ☺
Haha! I don’t have this, but I have it with books! Did you read Like Water for Chocolate? OH MY WORD!
Also, whenever I read anything by Amy Tan, I must have potstickers and cooked cabbage and silky soft cake! Without fail, I swear the dumpling descriptions KILL ME! The potstickers I order 😉
You’re so right, Joey….reading about food can stay with you much longer. 🍕 🍝 🍜 🍲 Hemingway’s “A Moveable Feast” is an early example. I saw “Like Water” but didn’t read the book. ☺
Now you made me hungry!!!
That wasn’t my goal with this post, but…whatever works. ☺ Thanks, Sandra.
Just need to be clear about something based on the first image … is there a problem with having a relationship with a pizza? Cause if there is, I got problems. Huge problems.
We all share that kind of problem with pizza, and it’s a good thing, King. ☺ 🍕 Thanks.
Creme Brulee. I miss Creme Brulee.
I tried making it once. There was a fire hazard !! 🔥☺🔥
That’s the idea, but only if it’s under control. ☺
I am hungry now!
I heard that a lot here, Linda. Enjoy it. ☺☺☺
I got it this time. It was perfect, I found myself smiling the whole way through.☺☺☺
Eating is always so sensual. These 2 folks understood. The shellfish scenes got to me the most. We lived in Maryland where steamed crabs were a local ritual…the process was as much fun as the flavors. Thanks so much, Derrick, and where on earth did you find this one ???
I saw it on the cinema in my youth, Van. Not a scene ever to be forgotten 🙂
That’s for sure. Pretty amazing.
Yes, Van, sometimes I swear I can smell the food on the big screen in the theater, so well done is the scene. ❤
And is there a predominance of Italian cuisine ? 🍕 🍝 I’m often heading for pasta/pizza after a movie scene. ☺ Thanks, Mark.
I could go for a slice after a movie, most times, Van. 🙂
Cinema is a fantastic excuse to indulge 😊
It works for me, Jacqueline. ☺
Me too. All the time 🙂
Such pictures when I’m just trying to knock some sense into my diet 😉😉
I know. Sorry about that…but there are few calories in pictures of food. ☺☺
It’s lunch time here in the UK and my mouth is now watering!
Mission accomplished. Thanks for the visit and comment, Paul.
