History of fortunecookies

Want to know the story behind fortune cookie? There are several known stories surrounding the origin of the fortune cookie. Here you will find the story that is best known, about the cookie that contains a message on a small paper. You would expect it to originate in China, but that is not true. Back in the 19th century, there were stores in Japan (Kyoto) that sold a type of cracker that was folded in such a way that it could hold a paper with a message. The cookie had the name tsujiura senbei. Later, in the late 19th century, that idea was taken to California in the United States. At that time, the Japanese immigrant Makoto Hagiwara had a Japanese Tea Garden in which he served the cookie. Later there were even lawsuits to determine who really invented the cookie. David Jung was claimed to be the real inventor of the cookie, but the judges decided Makoto Hagiwara was the original inventor. David was the one who distributed the cookies in Los Angelos to the homeless out of pity. The cookies contained messages from the Bible.

Why do Chinese restaurants have fortune cookies

You definitely thought fortune cookies came from China? As you may have read above, that image is not correct. In fact, they come from Japan. After World War II, many Chinese restaurants appeared in the United States. However, these were not run by Chinese, but by Japanese! That was because there were many migrants from Japan in America at that time. They wanted to start a restaurant, but that which was so normal in Japanese restaurants: eating raw fish, was not really considered good food by the Americans. So hence they started a Chinese restaurant. There had to be something with coffee after dessert. That became the famous fortune cookies, with a nice message inside!
