Changde Mifen (Rice-noodle)
Mifen (Rice-noodle) is well known in Hunan Province with a history dating back to the Guangxu (a Chinese emperor of the Qing Dynasty) period. This local delicacy has been a favorite for local people, and a must-eat for visitors. Apart from its appealing shape, representing longevity and family reunion, its popularity lies in its convenience and affordability. Some accompaniments can be added to double the appeal, according to consumers’ taste. Usually, meat and ribs are the first choice, but these days, beef cooked in a traditional Islamic way is becoming more popular in restaurants. If you want to try this specialty, some restaurants are strongly recommended: chain restaurants, such as Yideyi, Tianxiayiwan, and Diyichun in Gaoshanjie Street.
