About the show
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.

Eat Chinatown will feature personal narratives, present-day and historic photos and ephemera. It aims to capture what these establishments mean to the SF community, to three generations of San Franciscans and to people who simply love Chinese food.

The photo exhibit is a part of Spotlight Chinatown, a project of the Chinatown Community Development Center supported by the San Francisco Office of Economic and Workforce Development and SFMTA.

The goal of Spotlight Chinatown is to promote local businesses, especially those that are impacted by the Central Subway construction and to highlight Chinatown’s unique neighborhood character through photographs and stories. More at
