Happy Chinese New Year! I met my friend Trang for dimsum at the oldest tea parlor in New York City, Nom Wah, on Doyers street. There were many tourists, just like myself which created a lively atmosphere and made our meal more enjoyable. If you've never have dimsum, think of it as Chinese tapas - sampler dishes of dumplings, usually 3-4 pieces and hors d'oeuvres-like dishes. We had shrimp dumplings, turnip cakes, vegetables, stuffed eggplant, pork buns, and a doughnut rice noodle roll, which I had for the first time and was weirdly good!
