I’ve read that there are about three billion fortune cookies made each year. Of those, I’ve heard that about 30,000 per day are baked at the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory in San Francisco’s Chinatown for distribution around the world.
The Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory has been operating here since 1962. It’s located just off of Grant Avenue between Washington and Jackson Streets at 56 Ross Alley. It’s a real treat to watch the fortune cookies being made and smell the wonderful aromas. I enjoyed sampling one of the crispy wafers fresh off the griddle.
If you go, you can capture a photo much like this one, but be prepared to pay fifty cents for the opportunity!
