Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory
Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory Review
Follow your nose down Ross Alley to this tiny but fragrant cookie factory. Workers sit at circular motorized griddles and wait for dollops of batter to drop onto a tiny metal plate, which rotates into an oven. A few moments later out comes a cookie that's pliable and ready for folding. It's easy to peek in for a moment, and hard to leave without a few free samples. A bagful of cookies—with mildly racy "adult" fortunes or more benign ones—costs under $5. You can also purchase the cookies "fortuneless" in their waferlike unfolded state, which makes snacking that much more efficient. Photographing the cookie makers at work will set you back 50¢.
