Traditional Korean pansanggi - North Korea
Kaesong - Tongil Restaurant: Traditional Korean pansanggi

This restaurant was right opposite where we were staying at the Kaesong Folk Hotel and we came here for lunch after visiting Panmunjom. The meal we ate was a traditional Korean one called pansanggi which consisted of 13 small brass dishes, each containing different types of food such as kimchi, rice, pickles and vegetables. A pansanggi meal was usually only eaten by royalty.

Eating al-fresco - North Korea
Ryonggak Mountain picnic lunch: Eating al-fresco

After we had visited Kim Il Sung's birth place at Mangyongdae, we had an outside barbeque picnic lunch at a place called Ryonggak Mountain. Again the food was excellent and a food way to cook and eat. We had, what we hoped were, beef and duck on skewers which we cooked on a small grill on the table, salad, bread and more bottles of beer.

Great food and fun as well - North Korea
Pyongyang No.1 Duck Barbeque: Great food and fun as well

We came here on our last evening in North Korea and the food was top rate. It was a duck barbeque restaurant where you cooked the food yourselves at your table and was good fun. Included were bottles of beer and even some rice wine.

Traditional Korean cooking - North Korea
Lunch on day 2: Traditional Korean cooking

This was lunch on our first full day in Pyongyang in a restaurant opposite some embassies, including Romania and Iran, on a street called Sariwon Street in the east of the city. Don't ask me what the restaurant was called but the food was great. You cooked it yourself in a small pot in front of you which was good fun.

Not bad but not as good as one's in the city - North Korea
Pyongyang - Yanggakdo Hotel Restaurants: Not bad but not as good as one's in the city

We ate a couple of times in two of the Yanggakdo Hotels restaurants. The first night of the tour we ate at the No.2 restaurant and had soup/bread, beef burger, salad and beer served to us by girls wearing traditional Korean dresses. We also had breakfast every morning which consisted of toast, eggs, coffee and yoghurt. The food was fairly good but not as good as other restaurants that we went out to in the city.
