Here are new photos straight from actor/writer/director Jon Favreau's upcoming film Chef. Chef tells the story of chef Carl Casper (Favreau), who quits his fine dining job and launches a food truck called El Jefe Cubanos with his family. (Favreau got some real life food trucking mentorship from LA food truck king Roy Choi during filming.) Casper takes El Jefe Cubanos on the road; filming locations included New Orleans, Miami, Austin, and Los Angeles.

The star-studded cast includes Dustin Hoffman, Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, John Leguizamo, and Robert Downey, Jr. After many Vines and some legal troubles, Chef is set to premiere at Austin's SXSW Film Festival in March before hitting theaters nationwide in May. Go, check out the photos below and keep an eye out for Choi and barbecue guru Aaron Franklin:
