"The Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Company is a fortune cookie company located in the Chinatown neighborhood of San Francisco, California in the United States. In 2011, Wired voted the company as one of their top ten "geekiest" places in San Francisco.
The cookie company, located between Jackson and Washington Streets in Ross Alley, was opened in 1962. It is owned by Franklin Lee. They make traditional fortune cookies, as well as chocolate flavored fortune cookies, almond cookies, and other sweets. Visitors can observe workers using motorized circular griddles to create fortune cookies, which they sell for $3 a bag. The company also makes "fortuneless" cookies. They charge for photographs of the workers, for 50 cents." (visit link
