We didn’t find many fading ads on our recent trip to Germany. We stayed in Köningswinter which used to be hoidy-toidy. Hotel Wenzel is now closed and didn’t look as if it will ever reopen, bar Im Schiffchen (‘in the little ship’) has seen better days. Loved our stay though. Saw good art in Köln and Bonn, ate lots of Bratwurst and Salzkartoffeln. Köngswinter, all in the Hauptstrasse.

History of Nom Wah

Nom Wah Tea Parlor first opened at 13-15 Doyers Street back in 1920 as a bakery and a tea parlor. For most of the 20th century, Nom Wah Tea Parlor served as a neighborhood staple offering fresh chinese pasteries, steamed buns, dim sum and tea. After it lost its lease at 15 Doyers in 1968, it moved into a brand new kitchen at 11 Doyers Street and has occupied 11-13 Doyers Street ever since. Nom Wah is most famous for its homemade lotus paste and red bean filling for moon cake during the Chinese autumn festival. It is also famous for its almond cookie. – For more see the Nom Wah Tea Parlor Website!
