With North Korea being a very closed off country, many often wonder what kind of food people eat there.
Blogger Reuben Teo had the chance to share his experience eating North Korea’s delicacies during his stay in the country.
In his post, he revealed that one big similarity between North and South Korea is that kimchi was served at almost every meal. Fish was served about half of the time and eggs were also common.
They also tried naengmyeon (cold noodles) which is known as a famous dish from the capital of Pyongyang. This dish was even featured in the series Descendant of the Sun. It was suggested to Yoo Si Jin, played by Song Joongki, by his friend who was a North Korean soldier.
With the same love for meat as their southern brothers, North Koreans also have their own special North Korean barbecue.
He also shared a typical North Korean packed lunch at Samjiyon.
They also tried a giant group sized fish hot pot with side dishes that looked very similar to South Korean side dishes.
Korea separated into North and South Korea in 1945, so it only makes sense that the people of both countries have similar tastes in food.
