Nom Wah Tea Parlor
New York, NY 10013
Village Voice's Description
Tucked away on Doyers Street in the heart of Chinatown, you'll find Nom Wah, the city's oldest tea parlor. Red-and-white checkered tablecloths, potted palm trees, and a vintage diner counter add to the charming ambiance. Fifty-six classic dim sum options span the menu and can be washed down with a variety of Asian teas. Almost everything here excites the taste buds, though standouts include all of the steamed rice rolls, North China-style fried dumplings, siu mai, and fluffy roast pork buns. Go and see for yourself--at prices like these, sampling across the board remains easy on the wallet.
Tips from foursquare
Try the steamed-to-order shrimp-and-snow-pea-leaf dumplings, packed with minced shrimp, flecks of scallions and bright, fresh snow-pea leaves. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
Support this place. Iconic. Classic. Too many old NYC establishments have been closing. Please don't let this be next.
This 92-year-old Chinatown restaurant serves terrific dim sum in a dining room with old-school charm. This is a great place to go for a cheap and satisfying meal in Chinatown. [Eater 38 Member]
