THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Biang! Restaurant Review

: Named for the snapping noise that’s made when whipping around hand-pulled noodles, this Flushing export from the people who brought you Xi’an Famous Foods serves up a different kind of Chinese food. This regional fare doesn’t boast General Tso’s chicken or egg foo yung. Instead, you’ll get luscious lamb dumplings, the doughy skin thick and the meat juicy, wading in a pool of sweet and sour cumin-laced sauce. You’ll get tender grilled meat on a skewer --- everything from chicken hearts to pork. And you’ll get soups crammed with thick hand-pulled noodles and pork belly in a spicy broth. For fans of Xi'an Famous Foods, some of the greatest hits are here, too, including the incredible lamb burger. There isn’t much by way of dessert and the booze offerings are underwhelming, but that’s not why you came here anyway.
