10 Cross-Canada Takeout-Film Pairings for Movie Night

Written by Sajmun Sachdev

We can all agree that the downside of staying in is the decision-making. What food to order, which movie to watch — there are so many options! By the time it’s all said and done, your pizza is cold and your eyes are begging for blue light glasses.

The good news is your days of endless scrolling are over because we did it for you! Here are 10 perfect movie-meal pairings.

Wonder Woman 1984 and Chung Chun Rice Hotdogs (Toronto, ON + Multiple Locations)

The sequel to Wonder Woman takes place in the 80’s so mealtime is an elevated twist on a childhood favourite, the pogo stick. Chung Chun’s Korean rice hotdogs can be spicy, cheesy or wrapped in ramen chips.

Luca and The Bicycle Thief (Halifax, NS)

Disney Pixar’s Luca is set in the Italian Riviera and is about a boy who is secretly a sea monster. We think it’s best to enjoy this film with some (or all) of the pasta. Try the Bicycle Thief’s Linguine all’Aragosta with local lobster or the Red Ravioli.

The White Tiger and Vij’s (Vancouver, BC)

The White Tiger was nominated for an Oscar and now we’re nominating you to eat the best Indian food in Canada while watching it. Vij’s lamb in cumin coconut curry is so good it will melt away the dramatic feels of the film.

Jungle Cruise and Mira (Toronto, ON)

Can you smell what The Rock is cooking? Since his latest flick, Jungle Cruise, takes place in the Amazon, there’s a good bet it’s Peruvian. Toronto’s Mira serves up traditional and contemporary takes on the cuisine.
