      The Experience

      Discover the treasured culture and cuisine of San Francisco’s famous Chinatown during this curated culinary tour led by the “Foodie Chap” Liam Mayclem. You’ll start your day in the heart of the city with a stop at City View for a traditional dim sum lunch followed by an educational tea tasting at Vital Tea Leaf. Learn to differentiate between the hundreds of loose leaf teas on hand (from traditional white and green to the more exotic oolong and pu-erh) before you make a stop for the town’s best pork buns. Liam knows exactly where to go.


      Next, you'll find yourself at a beloved San Francisco landmark: the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory. The birthplace of modern day fortune cookies, you’re in for a treat during the cookie-making demo and tasting. Finally, venture from the traditional to the modern with a stop at celebrity chef Martin Yan’s M.Y. China for a noodle pulling demonstration and tasting and Yuet Lee to eat a favorite among San Francisco's best chefs.


      There is no local insider more qualified to show you around than Liam Mayclem. The Emmy award-winner is the host and producer of KCBS’ “Foodie Chap,” which celebrates Bay Area chefs and winemakers and takes viewers inside the best kitchens on the West Coast.
