My coworker just let me in on a little secret: Mee Mee Bakery in North Beach. Actually, truthfully, it’s easy to spot and not a huge secret, but I never go to North Beach so it was news to me.
They sell fortune cookies in half pound and one pound bags $3.20 and $4.60, which is a way better deal than buying Chinese takeout for the two cookies they throw in for free. For a slightly steeper price, they also sell specialty chocolate- and strawberry-flavored fortune cookies and rainbow fortune cookies that mix all the flavors together. And if you’re not into food presentation, they sell their botched cookie rejects at a discount!
Feeling extra fancy? They’ll let you write your own fortunes for a customized cookie experience. My boyfriend once used this tactic to tell me he loved me for the first time, and boys: if you like blow jobs, this is a really good idea. Take note.
