Nom Wah Tea Parlor NYC
So this is a bit embarrassing. I was at Nom Wah Tea Parlor for dim sum with a group and we ordered a ton of stuff because we wanted to try everything and also wanted to take home leftovers so we didn’t have to cook for the rest of the day and the waitress cut us off. She canceled part of our order and said that we were ordering too much food. It was a bit disheartening, but I’m sure that she had her reasons…though, not really sure what they were since you would assume a restaurant would want you to spend more money. However, although we were sad, I will say that it wouldn’t deter me from going back to Nom Wah.
Nom Wah has a vintage soda parlor look to it. And instead of ordering dim sum from a cart, you check off items that you want from a menu and everything gets brought out to you.
While it doesn’t give off that lively dim sum experience, the high note is that you don’t have to wait around for your favorite dish to be brought around. Plus, their food is absolutely delicious. I’ve never been disappointed in Nom Wah’s food, hence why I always want to order everything on the menu.
Just looking at the pictures of the spare ribs and black beans, to steamed pork buns is making me incredibly hungry. I guess I’ll have to make a trip back very soon!
