Biang3, this is how you pronounce this word!Biang3, this is how you pronounce this word!

I don't like the second to the last sentence.

I don’t like the second to the last sentence.

I actually don’t like the second to the last sentence “两个贼娃立在旁.”

“刂” is a radical,or 部首, and it means the the same as 刀 (dao); a knife or a blade. We usually call “刂” “立刀旁”,or “立刀;” a knife standing on its pointing end.

Instead of “两个贼娃立在旁” may be we can change it to this: “一把利刀立在旁.”

You will see this “word” or symbol at Xi’an Famous Foods restaurant or Biang! on Main Street in Flushing, New York.

They have fabulous food if you like spicy taste.

My daughter and her husband bought us to its Chinatown place (original) a while back and we we liked it a lot. It was small and busy but it has a great reputation and attracted a loyal clientele, including a few very famous ones.

Their Flushing location is bigger and newer and it was equally busy. Its “红油抄手“ or ”wontons in red pepper oil“ was the best I’ve ever tried. You have to try them yourself!

Cold weather is coming and their food is perfect for that.

BTW, may be you can come up with an alternative to that “second to the last” sentence.
