The first dim sum parlor in Chinatown, Nom Wah Tea Parlor opened on Doyers Street more than 90 years ago. Wally Tang operated the popular restaurant and gathering spot for four decades before his nephew, Wilson Tang, took over in 2010. Following a major face lift — a faithful restoration of the dining area and modernization of the kitchen — Nom Wah reopened and is busier than ever. The restaurant now serves beer and liquor and is available for special events and parties. One thing has not changed: Nom Wah Tea Parlor still offers some of the freshest dim sum in Chinatown. Don’t miss the fried crab claw and the shrimp wrapped in bacon.
