Thank you for your kind comments and for joining us. We really appreciate it. The moon cakes were from Eastern Bakery at 720 Grant Ave, San Francisco, CA 94108, (415) 433-7973. The soup dumplings were from Dim Sum Corner at 601 Grant Ave, San Francisco, CA 94108, (415) 362-1118. Again, thank you for your kind review, it was great having the two of you join us.

Our guide Isabella immediately made us feel so welcomed. She is incredibly knowledgable about Chinatown and the history of San Francisco. She was very accomodating of evyerone's dietary restrictions and needs, and offered to take our pictures and tailored the tour to our taste.
