Down a little alley in Chinatown you find the Fortune Cookie Factory. Watch as fortune cookies are being made in front of your eyes and buy some to take with you for later. A fun little treasure in San Francisco.

Check it out, almost could not find this little Jen in china town. Women sit and easily work hard to make tiny cookies with a fortune. Interesting fun stop

On the window it had x-rated and adult features. Scary place afraid to leave my car. Didn't even go in a waist of time.
