If you saw the hit movie “Crazy Rich Asians,” you may have noticed the food, everywhere.

Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) flies to Singapore to meet her boyfriend Nick Young’s (Henry Golding) family. But quickly she’s introduced to Singaporean food. The moment after she lands, Nick and his friends, Colin (Chris Pang) and Araminta (Sonoya Mizuno), take her to eat at a hawker center, which is a huge lineup of local street food stalls. They buy from several cooks and vendors who serve, among other things, satay, chili crab, stir-fried noodles, and huge bowls of laksa curry.

Then there’s lobster, longevity noodles, and braised abalone with her friend Goh Peik Lin’s family. They walk through a kitchen full of roasted meats, salt-baked salmon, rice pancakes, dumplings, and loads of intricate desserts at Nick’s grandmother’s party. Rachel also attends the “wedding of the century” in Singapore with an endless buffet of whole suckling pigs, a shellfish display, and an actual boat full of caviar.

The film is still showing at the Sonoma 9 Cinemas in the Fiesta Plaza shopping center off Highway 12.
