Have you ever watched a film where the food looks so good it makes your mouth water? Ever wished you could try some of the fantastical delicacies, even in films set across the world - or in other dimensions? We explored some of the delicious international foods from popular movies and found the best places to eat them in Hong Kong.

The Hundred-Foot Journey's Indian Chicken Tikka

In this flavourful movie, Chicken Tikka is one of the dishes offered by the Indian restaurant, Maison Mumbai. In Hong Kong, you can enjoy a delicious Chicken Tikka at Jo Jo's Indian Cuisine Restaurant, which also serves many other Indian delicacies. 

Price: HK$101-$200

Location: 2/F, David House, 37-39 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong

Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe's Turkish Delight

Remember that scene when Edmund is lured by the White Witch on his first trip to Narnia? To win him over, she offers him some Turkish Delight, a chewy pink sweet. You can try a cube of this rosewater-flavoured dessert in Hong Kong at the Middle Eastern restaurant, I Love Istanbul.

Prices: HK$101-$200

Location: Shop 4, 13/F, Pakpolee Commercial Centre, 1 Sai Yeung Choi Street South, Mong Kok

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire's French Bouillabaisse

Fleur asked Ron if she could have the bouillabaisse during her welcome dinner in the fourth Harry Potter book and film. You can try this traditional French fish stew in Hong Kong at the French Window restaurant. 

Price: HK$138

Location: 3101, 3/F, IFC Two, Central

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's Everlasting Gobstoppers

Willy Wonka's chocolate factory has several mouth-watering treats to choose from, but the Everlasting Gobstopper is one of the most intriguing. Luckily, they can be found in Hong Kong. Well, maybe not everlasting but the large ones could last for years! Newly opened Mr. Simms Sweet Shoppe is filled with British sweets including the gobstoppers in many sizes. The big ones (about the size of a billiard ball) can be bought individually or you can get packs of smaller gobstoppers.

Price: less than HK$50

Location: 37 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central

Mrs. Doubtfire's Lobsters

In one of the most hilarious scenes in the movie, Mrs Doubtfire's attempt to cook a lobster dinner turns into a disaster. Lobsters originate from the US, but you can find them at the Rainbow Seafood Restaurant, the largest open-air eatery in Hong Kong. You can even choose your lobster from the giant tanks at the entrance! There's a free ferry service for all customers. 

Price: HK$201-400 per lobster

Location: 17 1st Street, Sok Kwu Wan, Lamma Island
