The Nom Wah Cookbook (Autographed by Wilson Tang)

Available on backorder

For the last 100 years, Nom Wah has been slinging some of the world’s most known dim sum dishes from New York’s Chinatown. Now Wilson tells the story of how the restaurant came to be—and how to prepare the legendary dishes in your own home.

But this isn’t simply the story of dumplings, though there are many folds to it. It isn’t the story of bao, though there is much filling. It’s not just the story of dim sum, although there are scores and scores of recipes. It’s the story of a community of Chinese immigrants who struggled, flourished, cooked, and ate with abandon in New York City. (Who now struggle, flourish, cook, and eat with abandon in New York City.) It’s a journey that begins in Toishan, runs through Hong Kong, and ends up tucked into the corner of a street once called The Bloody Angle.

In this book, Wilson takes you into the hardworking kitchen of Nom Wah and emerges with 75 easy-to-make recipes: from bao to vegetables, noodles to desserts, cakes, rice rolls, chef’s specials, dumplings, and more.

We’re also introduced to characters like Mei Lum, the fifth-generation owner of porcelain shop Wing on Wo, and Joanne Kwong, the lawyer-turned-owner of Pearl River Mart. We paint a portrait of what Chinatown in New York City is in 2020. A book for har gow lovers and rice roll junkies, The Nom Wah Cookbook portrays a culture at a crossroads. Written with Joshua David Stein, the book features photography by Alex Lau and An Rong Xu, and illustrations by Maral Varolian.

Each copy purchased on our web store is autographed by cookbook author Wilson Tang.

Backorder will be available for shipment on 11/2 at the latest.

Milton Glaser (The Underground Gourmet) T-Shirt

You’ve most likely seen graphic designer Milton Glaser‘s work, and may not have even realized it! Some of the designs in his vast portfolio include the I Love New York logo, the psychedelic Bob Dylan poster, and the logos for DC Comics and Brooklyn Brewery. Not to mention, he also teamed up with Clay Felker in 1968 and founded New York Magazine!

Together with Jerome Snyder, Glaser published The Underground Gourmet in 1967 on affordable eats in the city, which also includes a shoutout to a Choy family-run Nom Wah. You can catch this NYPR interview with Glaser, Snyder, and then publisher of New York Magazine George A. Hirsh on delightful eats in New York in 1969.

To celebrate our 100th birthday, we’ve brought three of Glaser’s illustrations—bao, siu mai, and soup dumpling—to life!

100% cotton t-shirt with embroidery and screen-printed neck tag for comfort.

Right sleeve embroidery features Nom Wah’s logo and Glaser’s autograph.

Left sleeve text is embrodiered with the words “Chinatown, NYC. Est 1920.”
