Pyongyang Restaurants: Have it Kim's Way!

Can’t make it to North Korea for dinner? While famine is kind of an issue there, you can dine like Kim Jong Un’s best bud at a Pyongyang Restaurant near you. They’re conveniently located in Beijing, Shanghai, Jakarta, Phnom Penh, Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Da Nang, Siem Reap, Vientiane, Kuala Lumpur, and Amsterdam. Coming soon: Scotland? Cream of Puppy Soup is not on the menu in Europe, but reviews rave more about the chain’s singing, dancing musician-waitresses than the food anyway.

Best Burger in North Korea?

Best Burger in North Korea?

In Pyongyang, Kim Jong-eun did a stately pleasure dome decree … and built a goofy water park.  A hamburger at Munsu Water Park will cost you $76.00. You want fries with that?

Elsewhere, the UN Food Programme continues to provide nutritional assistance to North Korea’s starving women and children.
