The Museum of Food and Drink is an incredible place. It is small, but that is the beauty of it. There are two sections with a lot of interactive activities which teach about Chinese American food. We learned that due to the Chinese Exclusion Act, Chinese restaurants were the only businesses that Chinese people could run. These store owners had to make food that appealed to Americans, causing Chinese food to become Americanized. Also, we were able to make our own origami fortune cookies, smell different scents and learn how to flip a wok.
