Nom Wah opened as a tea parlor and bakery in 1920 at 13-15 Doyers St. Throughout the second half of the twentieth century, Nom Wah Tea Parlor was first and foremost a bakery. The most beloved specialty was the mooncakes. The unique culinary art of dim sum (Cantonese) or dian xin (Mandarin) originated in China centuries ago. The term translates to “a little bit of heart” or “touch the heart” in reference to its portion sizes. In partnership with Vansary, Nom Wah is offering a series of virtual classes on how to make some of their classics, taught by one of their head chefs.
