'cesspool of immorality'. I love the history behind NYC, and Chinatown's narrative has been particularly fascinating. And of course tea is an important element of daily life in this part of town.
I can't wait to return to Nom Wah and try something new. This is a great spot to escape the chaos of the neighborhood, and linger over a pot of tea while munching a few dumplings, or a crunchy almond cookie.
