While Hong Kong film director Stephen Chow's latest movie Mermaid has topped the box office with takings of 2.7 billion yuan ($414 million) on Sunday, a Stephen Chow movie-themed restaurant opened recently has also became a hit among residents of Shanghai.
Everything in the restaurant is related to Chow's movies. Interior decoration includes posters while wall paintings reflect Chow's on-screen persona. The menu and tableware also reminds people of scenes in Chow's films.
Dishes are named after characters or terms appearing in his work, sparking customers' imaginations as to what they may be served.
