Nom Wah Tea Parlor

Nom Wah Tea Parlor first opened at 13-15 Doyers Street back in 1920 as a bakery and a tea parlor. For most of the 20th century, Nom Wah Tea Parlor served as a neighborhood staple offering fresh chinese pasteries, steamed buns, dim sum and tea. After it lost its lease at 15 Doyers in 1968, it moved into a brand new kitchen at 11 Doyers Street and has occupied 11-13 Doyers Street ever since. Nom Wah is most famous for its homemade lotus paste and red bean filling for moon cake during the Chinese autumn festival. It is also famous for its almond cookie.
The first known owners of Nom Wah, the Choy family, dates back to the the 1940's. It was then sold to Mr. Wally Tang in 1974. Wally has worked at Nom Wah since 1950 when he was 16 and started to manage it when he was 20. Nom Wah hasn't gone through much changes thru the years. Its vintage looks, good food and great value has kept generations of families coming back. If you have ever been at Nom Wah in the past 60 years, you would know who Wally is! Thru the years, numerous movies and TV shows have been shot at Nom Wah. A few include Reversal of Fortune, Premium Rush, All Good Things, Quid Pro Quo, Third Rock and Law and Order.
In late 2010, Nom Wah gets a facelift while retaining its mid century feel. A completely redone kitchen along with just a few minor technology upgrades and changes in the dining area will bring Nom Wah into the 21st century. Nom Wah will also be managed by the next generation of the Tang family, Wilson Tang, under the watchful eyes of Wally himself and his team of culinary experts in dim sum. Wilson comes from a mixed background of finance and food service. After graduating Pace University, Wilson spent a few years with financial firms like Morgan Stanley and ING Direct. He also owned and operated a bakery in the Lower East Side for 5 years.
