The East Coast and the West Coast have inspired many HK film-makers while they were outside their comfort zone that is Hong Kong. In large part because the East and the West (NY, L.A. and San Francisco for instance) are home to many Chinese and boast huge Chinatowns, directors felt compelled to shoot these areas.
Sausalito, Comrades, Almost A Love Story, A Better Tomorrow 2, The Master, Farewell China, An Autumn’s Tale, Full Moon In New York were among the films (the good ones) to be shot in the US by HK directors and with a Chinese cast. (Map of the area)

Excellent Dumpling House

Location: 111 Lafayette St. (between Canal St. and Walker St.) Chinatown, New York, NY 10013, USA
Film: Comrades, Almost A Love Story 甜蜜蜜 (1996)/ Dir: Peter Chan Ho Sun 陈可辛

Excellent Dumpling House proposes a mix of Shanghainese‎ and Cantonese cuisine. The restaurant, famous for its dumplings, hasn’t changed much since 1996.

In Comrades, Almost A Love Story, this is where Lai Siu Gwan (Leon Lai) and Yan (Joe Cheung Tung-Cho) work. Leon Lai works here as a cook/deliveryman after he emigrates to America.

Harold L. Lee & Sons Inc. Insurance

Location: 31 Pell St., (Chinatown) New York, NY 10013, USA

Film: Comrades, Almost A Love Story 甜蜜蜜 (1996)/ Dir: Peter Chan Ho Sun 陈可辛

The current place is an office for Harold L. Lee & Sons Inc. Insurance, which was Harold L. Lee & Sons Travel Service in Comrades, Almost A Love Story.
The façade of the office doesn’t appear in the film. Lee Kiu (Maggie Cheung) is shot from the inside. She leaves the building upon hearing on the radio the news of the passing of Teresa Teng, a beloved singer in HK.



Screen caps showing Maggie Cheung exiting the establishment. The very next shot shows her walking down Bayard St, where she ponders on the tragic news.
