did you know that fortune cookies were created in San Francisco? another fun fact, San Francisco has the largest Chinatown outside of Asia and the oldest in North America. and even more than that, if you’ve some time here you’ll know there are actually a few Chinatowns in town – there’s the old historic neighborhood in downtown San Francisco, the one with the gate all the tourists love to visit. and then there are a couple of newer neighborhoods out in the Sunset and Richmond districts, both of which have much better shopping, bakeries and dim sum restaurants in my opinion. oh, and don’t forget the other major historical Chinatown in Oakland ;-)
anywhoo, fortune cookies! givers of great wisdom..
the weirdest fortune i ever got was:
‘don’t take advice from a fortune cookie’
