After Thanksgiving and way too much turkey, it was time for some new flavors. We sent out this Tweet into the social media universe, “Enough turkey! We are ready for a food throw down…any interesting suggestions for this coming week?”. Not more then a few seconds later, we received a response from Wilson Tang of Nom Wah Tea Parlor, “how about a dimsum dinner throwdown?”, and the rest was history! We quickly madeNom Wah’s first Twitter reservation, the power of social media in the food universe was in full force.
New York City’s Chinatown is a truly unique place, fast paced with exotic sounds, smells that plays a very important role in the city’s vibrant food scene and is steeped with historical significance. And then there’s Doyers Street home to Nom Wah. This small curved street that cuts through Bowery and Pell Street is straight out of a movie. Early in the century, the bend in the street became known as “the Bloody Angle” because of numerous shootings among the Tong Gangs of Chinatown that lasted into the 1930s. The street was ideal for street battles not just because of its angle but also because of the tunnels that connected the buildings. Hatchets were frequently used, leading to the creation of the expression, “hatchet man.” According to law enforcement officials, more people died violently at the “Bloody Angle” than at any other street intersection in the United States. Thankfully, the violence died out decades ago and now Doyers Street has become a dining destination with amazing restaurants and bars.
