Stretch the Noodle

Portland has a new food cart at 3th & Washington. Their Beijing style beef noodle soup is amazing. Each bowl has just one noodle …  one 20 foot long noodle.  Only $8.00!

Among other things they serve:

  • Niú ròu lā miàn  (牛肉拉面) – Beef noodle soup
  • Jiānbing (煎饼) – Kind of like a crispy omlette

If you listen to the audio you can hear me say:

  • Sorry – in English (I had permission, but I felt a little embarrassed to film her.) 
  • Bù hǎo yìsi (不好意思) – “Sorry” in Mandarin
  • Hěn lìhai (很厉害) – “Awsome” in Mandarin

The noodle-puller (a native speaker) responded to my compliment with “Xièxie”.
