Opened in 1920 in New York City’s Chinatown, Nom Wah Tea Parlor is the first and oldest dim sum restaurant in New York. Founded as a tea parlor and bakery by the Choy family in 1920, Nom Wah was originally famous for its mooncakes; dim sum was a secondary priority. Dim sum, which translates to “a little bit of heart” referring to its bite-size portions, originated on the Silk Road a millennium ago. Nom Wah was sold in 1950 to Wally Tang, who started as a dishwasher at the Chinese restaurant, and then passed on to Wally’s nephew Wilson in 2010. Skip the crowds queuing for dim sum and order Nom Wah’s legendary dim sum straight to your door.
