During the Credits
There are extra scenes and a special behind-the-scenes cameo during the credits of Chef.
Nearly half a minute into the credits once the song “Oye Como Va” ends, Abuelito (Perico Hernandez) begins his next song, “La Quimbumba”, in extra scenes that continue from the final one of the wedding. These scenes, which include shots of Abuelito’s band and various cast members on the dance floor, are also paired with a sped-up POV shot through a large gathering of food trucks for about half a minute. This entire sequence lasts about two minutes, and “La Quimbumba” plays for another minute and a half over conventional rolling credits. An additional extra scene begins once the second song ends. The stinger is a behind-the-scenes look at co-producer and technical consultant Roy Choi teaching director/writer/producer/lead actor Jon Favreau how to make the perfect grilled cheese sandwich, which Carl made for Percy in the film. The scene lasts about a minute and a half. The film is loosely inspired by Roy Choi, a chef credited as one of the founders of the recent food truck movement. His famous Kogi truck is visible at the food truck gathering near the end of the film.
