Lots of varieties of fortune cookies-from chocolate, strawberry and green tea. A bit tricky to find but ask any of the locals and they will help you out. Really friendly and patient staff, it was busy when we went and the staff were great. Worth...More

We loved this tour. It's wonderful to hear the history behind this historic, family-owned factory and see how the family has managed to simultaneously honor tradition, while innovating new ideas to grow and expand. In a era where big business and automation is king, it...More

Small factory but really interesting. Tour is just right amount of time for kids, and the tour guide was friendly and answered all our questions. The sample cookies were delicious!

A small shop up an alley way, good fun and lots of different cookies. You can even have your own messages put into your own cookies.. Fascinating to watch the ladies make the cookies, add the slip of paper and seal them.

Not masses to see so don’t book out too much of your day, maybe combine with the cable car museum as your walking back into the city. It’s ammusing to watch the stark realisation in everyone’s faces as it becomes apparent how easy they are...More

This store is in a small back alley in Chinatown. There's a line to get in and you can actually see them making the fortune cookies-but there's really not much to see and you won't spend more than 5 to 10 minutes there. But you...More
