Fourth character in the name of Sam Woo Barbecue Restaurant

Recommended Posts

alexamies

Can anyone tell me the pinyin or unicode for the 4th character in the name of Sam Woo Barbecue Restaurant? The remainder of the Chinese text is 三和燒?麵家 / 三和烧?面家. An image of the menu is here:

I can't find the character by radical lookup in any of the dictionaries that I have access to.

It's the traditional form of 腊. It's used to represent the last month of the lunar calendar. See zhongwen.com for more info.

It also means cured, as in cured fish / meat. 腊肉, if you ever see it on a menu, is very similar to bacon. 烧腊 seems to be a cooking style, although I've no idea what it involves. Barbecue, judging by the English name :mrgreen:

My (simplified) dictionary lists it under the 月 radical, but technically I guess the radical is 肉 and might be listed as such in some dictionaries? I have no idea, but might explain why you couldn't find it.

Thanks. That makes sense. I am able to find 腊 in the dictionary. I doesn't have 烧腊 but the Microsoft Chinese input method seems to recognize the pair of characters as a word, now that I now how to input it by pinyin. From the links at hanyu.chi.cuhk.edu.hk it seems like barbecue is the best translation.
