Put on your walking shoes and join David Lei on a not-to-be-missed culinary tour of San Francisco’s famous Chinatown. The primary focus of the tour will be an introduction to many of the neighborhood restaurants and tea shops, with stops at several places to sample their unique dishes. This walking tour will also include visits to temples, food emporiums and various cultural landmarks. And, of course, throughout the tour, David will be sharing historical background and his insider’s knowledge of what is one of San Francisco’s most fascinating and historic neighborhoods. (Please note the price does not include drinks at the restaurants.)

David Lei is a leader in San Francisco’s Chinese American community as well as a longtime supporter and friend of the Asian Art Museum and the Society. He has served on multiple nonprofit Boards, such as the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) and many others, in addition to having helped curate exhibitions and develop documentaries relating to the Chinese American community.
