What is it like to dine at a North Korean restaurant?
The chain operates illegally in 12 countries
FOOD North Korea
A North Korean-owned chain called Pyongyang Restaurant consists of 130 locations in 12 countries, and continues to operate against UN Law, according to Mic.com. The sanctions were put in place by the Security Council after the rogue nation was convicted of illegal nuclear weapon testing.
Despite this, many locations around the world continue to serve the forbidden fare. At one Pyongyang Restaurant in Siem Reap, Cambodia, locals and tourists alike can dine at the 500-seat establishment—but it comes at a price.
All of the menu items are listed in US currency, according to Mic.com. Pork chops cost a whopping $30, beef ribs are $25, and kimchi, which is usually served as a free side, is $3. If you were hoping for alcohol with your meal, the cheapest bottle is listed for $100. In comparison, a standard meal in Cambodia averages about $6 total.
As for the employees of the restaurant, they all appear to be citizens of North Korea, and Mic.com reports that it is rumored that the waitresses are forbidden to have contact with the world outside of Pyongyang Restaurant.
Only time will tell how long these outlawed restaurants continue to operate publicly. Would you dine at a North Korean restaurant?
