Nom Wah Tea Parlor – Top Dim Sum in Chinatown

There are certain restaurants that every New Yorker is obligated to try at least once. Such establishments are commonly noted not only for the cuisine but also for cultural and historical contributions to the city. Nom Wah Tea Parlor, located at 13 Doyers Street, certainly holds this coveted distinction.

To get the most out of the dining experience, it’s helpful to know that Nom Wah is the first and longest standing dim sum restaurant in the city, having been established in 1920. History and tradition are certainly central at Nom Wah. Just ask owner Wilson Tang, whose family has been involved in the business for over 60 years.  Under Tang’s guidance, the irresistible charms of old New York City’s Chinatown remain intact in the restaurant’s décor, ambiance and yes, the menu.

At Nom Wah, the dim sum is made to order and served all day long. The menu is lists familiar offerings such as scallion pancakes, sui mai and turnip cake, among others.  Without fail, these unfussy dim sum staples are delivered wonderfully warm and fresh. This is the comforting type of food makes a person lean back and smile.

Be sure to visit Nom Wah for a piece of history and of course, a satisfying meal.
