Do you know all about “Mihun” ?. Let me tell you about it. This dish is really yummy; it is like a noodle, but thinner and has a white color. Mihun originally came from Tiongkok, China, but there it was called “Bihun”. It is because the “Bi” means rice and “Hun” means flour. It was created from rice flour and had a chewy texture.
In my place, Balikpapan City you can easily find this food called Mihun. Moreover, these dishes are really cheap. Everyone can have it. You can find it in the morning, around 8 AM to 12 noon, But in here at “Mama Dana’s Mihun”, You can get your special, delicious, and yummy Mihun anytime by only paying 8K IDR.
