Mie Belitung “Atep”

Sebenarnya cukup banyak menu makanan di Belitung, namun saya memilih untuk makan siang mie khas Belitung. Dan yang paling terkenal adalah Mie Belitung “Atep”,  yang berada di jalan Sriwijaya No.27, dekat dengan Monumen Batu Satam (pusat kota).

Entah mengapa namanya terkenal dengan sebutan danau Kaolin, padahal ada beberapa mineral yang juga ditambang dikawasan ini, seperti Timah dan Pasir Gelas.

Menurut informasi dari penduduk lokal, hasil penambangan ini sebagian dikirim keperusahaan keramik Mulia Ceramics.
