Do your movie plans revolve around which restaurant you would visit later? Are you the one rushing to the popcorn counter to get your own tub before the movie begins? If yes, then you are genuine foodie who likes his cinematic experience as much as he likes the caramel or cheese in his popcorn.
1. Chef (2014)
More than a movie about greasy sandwiches, Chef is a tale of every person whose job comes in the way of their passion. Chef is the story of a short tempered Chef Carl, who is stuck in his job at a swanky restaurant, and the repetitive menu is killing his love for food. His quick temper costs him his job, and it is then that Carl’s real journey starts. He launches a jazzy food truck with his estranged son and sells delicious Cuban sandwiches. A treat to watch! Of course, we have the option to watch the Bollywood version of Chef starring Saif Ali Khan.
