For years, our family has brought "FLATS" for us to eat from the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Company. We walked around Chinatown and stopped in to get flats. They were making them right then and gave us some hot ones to eat. If you buy a bag, they put some hot ones in our bag to eat while you walk. I wish they shipped them as I would buy a case and eat them all year. Guess I have to come back again sometime. We are from PA so its quite a trip.

This place is worth a quick stop to see how fortune cookies are made. I would not recommend spending too much time here but worth ti if you are in the strolling the streets of the Chinese neighborhood.

It is totally fascinating to observe fortune cookies being made: batter is poured into circular pans, which are then hydraulically lifted against the wall of a vertical heated slowly-rotating drum, the pan (now with cooked cookie) is lowered so the maker can place a fortune in it before folding the cookie in half and bending it on a metal rod, all while the cookie is still warm. When cooled down, the cookie must now be cracked to access the paper fortune.

In between the streets of a narrow alley situates a very old and tiny fortune cookie factory. The line of people coming to see and buy their cookies snake down the street. The average person stays for 5 minutes to grab their bags, taste a sample, pay and leave. They still make fortune cookies the old fashion way, folding the cookie manually, with the hands while it is still hot and placing the paper fortune inside. You can choose different flavors of the cookie like chocolate, sesame or original. With rents in SF skyrocketing, it is a wonder this place stands in business. Their average bag of cookies costs about $5! But it is a must visit.

Fun place to stop in to see fortune cookies in the making. Free samples and ample cookie options available for purchase. The baker in the photo as well as the sales clerk were gracious. Tips are appreciated and a part of sustaining this well known stop in Chinatown. I found it charming and appreciate learning about the art of the fortune cookie. Besides...how often do many of us get a chance to have warm fortune cookies?
