Established in 1920, Nom Wah Tea Parlor is the first and oldest dim sum restaurant in New York. Originally a tea parlor and bakery founded by the Choy family in 1920, Nom Wah was initially known 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. The popular Chinatown restaurant was sold in 1950 to Wally Tang, who started as a dishwasher at the Chinese restaurant, and was then passed on to Wally’s nephew Wilson in 2010. Skip the lines of diners waitng for dim sum and order Nom Wah’s legendary dim sum straight to your door.
