Fun Animation Perfectly Captures the Wild World of Dining at a Chinese Restaurant

By Casey Chan on at

Chinese restaurants can be really fun and lively places, where family and friends gather around giant banquet tables to talk, drink, and laugh togethe r— all while eating food that’s constantly being spun around a Lazy Susan. Anatola Howard’s short animation Giraffe Soup captures the essence of eating Chinese food at a Chinese restaurant perfectly.

It’s also really great because it tells the story from the perspective of a kid, which translates perfectly to any outsider who’s looked at the dishes on the table and wondered what in the heck they were about to eat.
