Nom Wah is hidden in the nooks and crannies of New York’s Chinatown. Even after walking through these allies in daylight several times, I still get lost and rely on extra time to get me there. They boast to be Chinatown’s first dim sum parlour, opening in the 1920s.

There’s nothing more comforting than congee, scalding in temperature, for when you’re feeling sick. Cantonese congee is boiled for such a long period of time that each millet of rice has melted into a porridge state. The balance of the rice’s earthiness and salt is delicious and goes down just right, even if it’s pipping hot and making you wince.
