  • What restaurants will I find in Chinatown?

    There is no shortage of excellent eateries in Chinatown. Savor everything from seafood and duck to pork and abalone at Great Eastern. Treat yourself to Mongolian beef, eggplant with spicy garlic sauce, and Kung Pao chicken at Hunan Home's Restaurant. While House of Nanking has an extensive menu, the sesame chicken is a real crowd pleaser. And for delectable desserts, pop into Golden Gate Bakery for an egg custard tart or moon cake.
  • What are the top Chinatown attractions?

    You will have plenty of attractions from which to choose when you choose to spend all or part of your day in Chinatown. At the top of your to-do list put the Fortune Cookie Factory where you'll see first-hand how the cookies are made and how the fortunes get inside. Other must-visit spots include Portsmouth Square, the various Chinatown alleys, the landmark Chinatown gateway, and the food markets on Stockton Street.
