Friday, January 20, 2017 - 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm | Cost: FREE
41 Ross | 41 Ross Alley, San Francisco, CA


Eat Chinatown is a photo exhibit at 41 Ross that commemorates classic Chinatown restaurants, diners and bakeries that have been operating for at least 40 years. Photographer Andria Lo and writer Valerie Luu (founders of Chinatown Pretty, a street-style blog that documents Chinatown seniors) profiled four eateries and their faithful patrons to understand San Francisco Chinatown’s food culture.

The exhibit focuses on four well-loved restaurants:

  • New Lun Ting Cafe (better known as Pork Chop House)
  • Capital Restaurant
  • Hon’s Wun-Tun House
  • Eastern Bakery – oldest Chinese bakery in North America, having been established in 1924

The show also remembers ones that have since closed over the years — such as Empress of China — but are still reminisced by Chinatown residents and San Franciscans.
