OISHII Asia

According to Irving Ruan and JiJi Lee’s Google Translate for My Asian Parents, “have you eaten yet?” = “I love you.” CinemAsia wants to give you all the love we have by serving you scrumptious food porn onscreen and edible Asian food stalls inside Rialto and Kriterion. Thus, we have created a new culinary section OISHII Asia — because “Oishii” is the Japanese word for “delicious,” and Tampopo is everyone’s favourite culinary film. Each of our delectable films represents a different cuisine: Indonesian street food, Japanese kaiseki ryori, Korean organic soul food and Hong Kong style diner dishes.
