This is my go-to for dim sum. I love their egg rolls. Basically what they’ve done is take an egg crepe and then they stuff it, lightly bread it and fry it. It’s a traditional, original egg roll.

Opened in 1920, Nom Wah Tea Parlor is the oldest dim sum restaurant in New York City. Owner Wilson Tang is part of the second family to run the restaurant. What makes them unique is that they prepare their dim sum to order, instead of making the dishes in advance and serving them on rolling carts around the dining room. They make their egg rolls the traditional way... actually using egg crepes. Most dim sum restaurants use pre-made frozen wraps, but not at Nom Wah Tea Parlor. We explore the making of their famous Original Egg Roll.
