Shrimp Siu Mai
The siu mai at Nom Wah are a can’t miss! These particular ones are filled with sweet shrimp and encased in a delicate wrapper. The head chef at Nom Wah has been making these for nearly 40 years!
Nom Wah’s first location was opened in 1920 on one of the oldest streets in Chinatown. A century later it remains New York’s first and oldest dim sum restaurant. Today, you can still visit Nom Wah’s original location, or you can stop by one of their newer locations in New York, Philadelphia, and Shenzhen.
Dim Sum, which translates to “a little bit of heart” referring to the bite-size portions, originated on the Silk Road a millennium ago. Tea houses along the trade route began serving food to weary travelers and transformed afternoon tea into a celebrated eating experience.
