One of Chinatown’s oldest Dim Sum restaurants Nom Wha (1920!)just opened a new fast and causal spot in Nolita to sate your Soup Dumpling and old school Chinatown dishes cravings during the week and at night. It’s a cool little space with community tables, cool Street like Art on the walls and tunes playing.
The menu is limited but has more than enough to choose from. There are a number of Dim Sum to choose from, a few Slurp(soup) bowls, Rice dishes and what they call Sidekicks.If your paying with a credit card you place your order via the iPad on the wall(which reminded me of Ramen joints in Japan), with cash,at the counter.
I decided to go with the Pork and Chicken Siu Mai, Pork Soup dumplings and the Cantonese-smoked chicken leg with ginger to sample the goods. Everything was tasty and authentic. The chicken having more meat than I expected. Actually managed to not burn the roof of my mouth eating the Soup Dumplings. If you’re jonesing for Dim Sum during the week check this place out.
