Italian Food Restaurant

Pyongyang, April 28 (KCNA) — There is a restaurant specializing in Italian dishes in Kwangbok Street, Pyongyang.

Its main dishes are various kinds of pizza and spaghetti dishes including pizza margherita and spaghetti vongole bianco. It also serves famous Korean and foreign dishes.

Manager of the restaurant Kim Sang Sun told KCNA:

There is a moving story behind the appearance of this restaurant.

General Secretary Kim Jong Il took care that a restaurant specializing in Italian dishes was opened, saying the Koreans should be let to taste world- famous dishes.

He took necessary measures, learning that the restaurant found it a tough row to hoe, having no cook experienced in Italian dishes.

Now our cooks are just as good as Italians in making Italian dishes.

No wonder the Korean and foreign customers are satisfied with the famous dishes of the world served by our restaurant.


  1. I guess North Korea isn’t ready for other kinds of pasta yet, other than spaghetti. That 35 year old cook said “spaghetti” like 5 times in one sentence. So no penne, fettucinni, ravioli. Only spaghetti in north korea.

  2. Yeah, I figured as much. I heard that there are to be French and other European-style eateries opening, and I know that some French chefs are there to do likewise. Cheers

  3. Yes, North Koreans, now you never have to go to Italy to experience the taste of real Italian cuisine. You can enjoy it here, Italian-style pizza made here. We bring the flavour of the world to you. Made by culinary artisans who are neither Italian, nor have been to Italy themselves, this authentic Italian experience is all you need to enjoy what WE tell you Italian culture is. (Then again, here in Toronto, so many ‘authentic’ Italian places are staffed with Tamils in the kitchen so…)

  4. 스빠게띠를 줭리에 따라 해산물을 도마도를 넣은 스파게티를 나눠볼수잇습네다
