About

I'm all A'BAO dimsum taking over the world :)

Hi! My name is Cynthia and I'm the owner and Chief Dimsum Eater of Wonton In A Million, home of the Steam Team and of the cutest dimsum-inspired stationery and planner goodies.

My dad has managed a dimsum restaurant in New York City, Oriental Garden, since he came to New York City as a shy newlywed in the 1980's. Working up from being a bus boy to managing David Chang's go-to restaurant, he has committed his entire adult life to this business. But while he has managed to maintain an incredible dining experience - insisting on the highest quality ingredients and sourcing the freshest seafood, even waking up at 6am on his one day off every week to pick up fresh fish from Flushing - the restaurant still struggles as its regular customers are being priced out of Manhattan's Chinatown.

So one day, when I was waiting to eat there and the thought floated into my head... "Wouldn't it be great if there were punny, dimsum greeting cards?" I thought, maybe... this is... how I could use what I know how to do - design - to figure out how to bring people back into Chinatown.

That night, I set out to design a line of punny dimsum cards. My hope is that Wonton In A Million, as a brand, will introduce dimsum to the whole of New York City, help to revive the neighborhood I grew up in, and hopefully, eventually, spread the love of this delicious meal and social ritual throughout the world. :)

Follow along on my journey on Instagram at @wontoninamillion and on Facebook in the group wontoninamillion.com/facebook. Thank you so much for reading all the way here. I have so many ideas in the works - including plushies and traveling dimsum pop-up stores. None of it would be possible without all of you dimsum lovers <3 Hope to see you on Instagram @wontoninamillion, where you can keep up to date on the latest and greatest in dimsum and meet the other thousands of members of the Wonton Family!
