The Release Party took place at Gallery Nucleus, where we shot parts of the movie.


Aside from being an art space, they also have a cool store!



Afterwards Quentin took us all out for a feast. The only nearby place open that late was King Hua Restaurant, and lucky for us, it was delicious!


I’m not positive about everything he ordered because it was all done in Cantonese…


…maybe someone can translate for me…


…but here’s what I’m able to gather from my own memory/knowledge of Chinese food.

First came my pick – Fried Prawns with Honey Creme Sauce and Candied Walnuts


I didn’t grow up eating this dish, but when I discovered it in my mid 20’s I became obsessed and order it every time it’s on a menu. Probably devoured more than my share of it.

The rest of the dishes I ate a couple servings of each.

Squab (or duck?!?) in Lettuce Cups with a hoisin-y sauce


Jellyfish and Cucumber


Bean Curd and Greens


Tofu Medallions with Broccoli


There was also rice but I only ate a few bites of it. Too preoccupied with the main dishes!!!


And then this appeared….


Ladies and gentleman: Kabocha Squash with Oxtail and Gravy


a.k.a. the reason I will not be hungry again til Friday – I could NOT stop scooping out that yumminess!


The meal ended with the house dessert – a sweet soup filled with tapioca and sweet potato


I could only manage a few sips – was ready to burst!!!!


The People I’ve Slept With has been a long road – read all about the 5-year journey on this blog post Quentin wrote – and I was so grateful to celebrate and put the project to bed last night with the rest of the crew.


Thanks Quentin, Koji, Stanley, and Karin!!! I was honored to be a part of your baby.

  • Annie

    I just put it on my netflix! If you select new arrivals, it’s one of the first to pop up! :)

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet

      how awesome! thanks, annie!

  • Mitzi @ my nikon eats food

    Aw looks like an awesome time! I love that dish too – honey walnut prawns

  • Healthy Coconut

    All those dishes looks really good, but I’ve never ordered or eaten them, except for the shrimp dish. It’s hard to order something new at Chinese restaurant when you haven’t tasted it before and especially if you don’t know what to expect.

    I’ll have to ask about the Kabocha dish next time I go, I would love to try that.

    If you ever need extras for you movie projects, I would love to do it. It looks fun :)

  • Healthy Coconut

    P.S. I have a Blockbuster account so hopefully it’s available in the new DVD releases this week online

  • biz319

    That’s so exciting Lynn! One other reason we should go back to getting movies on Netflix! πŸ˜€

    All that food looks delicious – except the Jellyfish!

  • Teresa Huang

    Wow! That table looks straight out of Eat, Drink, Man, Woman! Chinese restaurants are so much more fun when you’re with people who know how to order… :)

  • Amanda

    Another reason to update my netflix queue! Congrats :-) And wow, that food looked amazing, and if you can’t eat an ungodly amount of kabocha squash with oxtail on a special night like last night, when can you?

  • Ruby W.

    This place is also very delicious for dim sum!

  • wendy

  • Jolene (

    HUGE Congratulations to you :-)

  • Jessie

    Congrats, Lynn!! :) I can’t read Chinese – all I can tell is that you had some kind of meat and some bean curd (I know, sad that I can’t read it!). Glad you enjoyed it!

  • fifi

    Nice to read your blog again Lynn and congratulations on your new movie. I’ve been away from blogs. Very nice healthy chinese food there, nothing too extravagant i.e. lobsters, shark fins (boring!). I like your last dish Kabocha Squash (???), very unusual and have never seen it before. Did it go well with oxtail soup?!

  • Claire

    I just watched the movie & have to say I highly enjoyed it!!!! Soo cute and highly enjoyable. :) Good work

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet

      thanks, claire!

  • Kailey (SnackFace)

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet
