Andy Learns How to Cook Dim Sum at Nom Wah Tea Parlor | Bon Appétit

Publisert 24. mai. 2021
We sent the very special Andy Baraghani to the iconic Nom Wah Tea Parlor in Chinatown to learn all about dim sum and Cantonese cuisine. Joined by cookbook author and activist Grace Young, Andy tastes his way through Nom Wah's menu and then learns how to make some Chinese staples, including char siu bao (barbecue pork steamed buns), beef spare rib rice roll and pork & shrimp potstickers.

Grace partners with AAFE for the Safe With Sound campaign. Learn more here:

Andy Learns How to Cook Dim Sum at Nom Wah Tea Parlor | Bon Appétit


  • who else comes to bon apetit just to see andy

  • Andy is shining in this episode. He should get to do a series❣️ I feel like he really brought it with his two guests🥰

  • But that tall man In the kitchen 😍😍😍😍😍

  • Andy: I am not immediately perfect at this :( I am so sorry

  • Owner and Andy were totes flirting

  • That is not a baked BBQ pork bun, that's a BBQ pork "shortcake" at 7:55...

  • The owner is so nice!

  • love you andy. wish i was younger!

  • They're flirting right? Or did I completely forget how people flirt during the course of the year?

  • The owner’s comments to Andy is pretty much every Asian parent to their child … this is standard not savage.

  • I love Cantonese cuisine, probably because my family is Cantonese lol

  • Flirting with Dimsum

  • Owner came off as watching too much Gordon Ramsey, thinking he's a rock star or something making dim sum by the hundreds. Bud, it's dim sum. Relax there tough guy.

  • She is probably Toisan, by the way she pronounced the Pu'erh tea a "Bo Nei"

  • I'm here to compliment the boss too. I need more videos with him xD.

  • Cries in gluten sensitivity 🥲

  • Beautiful episode!

  • I love the generosity culture of paying for the bill, it’s universal it seems! In my English family here in the UK, this is the norm too! X

  • Just a point in distancing if she's serving you with Chopsticks...

  • its so unfortunate when men feel the need to do plastic surgery cringe

  • Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you'll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

  • It’s a war zone to fight for the bill. Man...the memories. 😂😂😂

  • The owner history is awesome!! What a guy!

  • We would devise ways of paying the bill by distracting others. Or else pretend to go to the bathroom as you slip the bill into you pocket to go pay.

  • I love y’all 💜💜💜

  • "why do you stop talking to me, jeez man" 😂

  • Is it just me or is the owner flirting with Andy?

  • Those char siew bao won't sell well in Asia unfortunately. The indication good char siew bao, the dough need to be exploded after steaming

  • Andy is giving away all our Asian secrets

  • ANDY EXPLORE MORE FOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Andys face is blushing so hard!!

  • Fighting for the bill “Chinese polite fight”

  • delicious food thank you for sharing

  • I have to say that I relate so much to the scene of making the rice paper on the steamer so much! My boyfriend is always so amazed when I can hold hot things without kitchen mittens. It's just practice.

  • Omg who are you two?! Soooo funny, love you guys!!

  • he can't keep getting away with it...

  • I love Andy!!

  • The owner was hilarious!!! 🤣

  • Ate here once. Food was mediocre. Not recommended for real Asian food ppl.

  • Love their combo. Love this guy even more after hearing his recollection of working in the World Trade Center on 9/11. This is NOwine gold.

  • Would love to see more episodes of Andy covering Chinese food!

  • This video was too short!

  • They have two tables because of covid, but actually you need that much space when you eat dim sum

  • "Delicious Chaos" is my new mantra

  • I wish starch wasn’t so bad for your gut

  • Um.... most millennials are very confident.....

  • I like to pretend I'm going to the bathroom. Then pay when they're not looking.

  • Never heard rice noodles described as gelatinous

  • This was such an awesome episode. The habit of paying for the bill is so that you don’t “lose face” in front of other people. Sure, it’s hospitality but there’s a deep ingrained culture of the need to feel respected too - money talks in Chinese/canto culture.

  • I want a whole of series of just the owner and Andy!!! Omg the vibe

  • Grace was so informative! She’s awesome

  • Whata fruitcake

  • this interviewer sucks.

  • I ship them

  • Wilson said, "You wanna battle?" to Andy and Andy was like, "No, no, no." 😆😍🤣😂

  • Hi Wilson Tang. 😍❤🤘👊🍻🍺🥂🍷🥃🚬

  • Hi Andy. Is Andy wearing his Balenciagas?

  • glad to see fighting over the bill isn't primarily an asian thing... its an every culture thing! just goes to show how much we appreciate the company of our friends and how those memories are priceless.

  • They’re both flirty with each other. Love it hahaha

  • Ate there last month...was super delicious

  • Petition for an "Andy + Wilson Road Trip" series

  • I’m sorry but the owner has major bigdick energy. He’s hot and I’m down

  • I forgot how much I love dimsum

  • The owner is amazing! He needs to come back!

  • Battle for the bill is real lol

  • chef was soooo not telling everything that he puts into char siu bai.

  • Confused why he stayed around after all the equality issues at Bon Appetit, but ok

  • Amazing episode! loved watching everyone in it !


  • i swore to god that i would never watch a bon appetite video again but i'm only making an expection because i've wanted to see someone cover cantonese food for years. i know no one cares but thank you

  • What a sublimely entertaining video. Excellent job all!

  • Was Wilson flirting with Andy?

    • D’oh! I would too, he is cute. Your food looks great btw, I hope to try some one day. 🤘🍻🤘

    • maybe 😂😂😂

  • People: this is our delicious street food, cafe food and brunch. Just imagine what we have for lunch and dinner. Smh Chinese is delicious, diverse, and deeper than you can imagine

  • give the owner of that shop a show for reals I would watch it.

  • We need more of these 🔥

  • andy is so adorable.

  • Love CSB never could get the hang of making them by hand

  • Grace Young is my Wok Guru! She rocks!

  • Andy is the best

  • My baby daddy

  • "So.. You Wanna Battle Or Somethin'??!" He's W/ It


  • owner is better than all of the new people u have on ur channel THEY SUCK!!!!!!

  • Are you sure those aren't pork (rather than beef) spare ribs?

  • That was not a baked chai siu bao. It was a thousand year old egg pastry.

  • Andy 😍😍😍

  • BA trying hard to be ethnic lol

  • I love Andy and Grace but the owner of the restaurant is hilarious. I’d watch a full show of him if I could

    • 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 lol

  • Can you replace him already!?

  • Lucky enough to say I've been to Nom Wah. Can't wait to go back!

  • still cant believe how this was one of my safest place to be and now I cant forgive its past, it seems all very cringy and still not have seen an apology and any reparations to the people involved.

    • Get over yourself. Geez

  • bruh when andy put the soy sauce on he put like 3 drops youre supposed to drown them lol

  • The boss is giving Andy a light taste of Asian parenting.

    • @jay why 420 uhhh....?

    • good to know that racism still exists at bon appetit

    • "light taste" is a proper word😂


  • Tf is this dudes problem? Showing signs of feeling intimated


  • When the owner starts dancing 😂love this video 💕

  • Love dim sum! fried turnip cakes ... mmm

  • this makes me miss hong kong so much!! 🥰🥰

  • thats my friends uncle @2:01, give us the royalties

  • Jing Fong actually does spare ribs with rice rolls and other dim sum restaurants serve that as well just to edit what Grace said. Beef rice rolls and other rice rolls are always ordered at dim sum restaurants.
