Fodor's Review

A densely packed, bustling neighborhood, Oakland's Chinatown, unlike its San Francisco counterpart, makes no concessions to tourists. You won't find baskets of trinkets lining the sidewalk and souvenir displays in the shop windows, but supermarkets such as Yuen Hop Noodle Company and Asian Food Products (824 Webster St.), open since 1931, overflow with delicacies, and the line for sweets, breads, and towering cakes snakes out the door of Napoleon Super Bakery (810 Franklin St.). Don't miss an enlightening tour of The Fortune Cookie Factory (261 12th St.), bubble tea and egg puffs at Shooting Star Cafe (1022 Webster St.), or a walk through the lovely Chinese Garden Park (7th St.).
