Want to taste the typical food of the country’s leader Kim Jong Un? Try a visit to Pyongyang Restaurant at West Boulevard Kelapa Gading, Jakarta Raya.
Restaurant menu was not much different from its neighbor South Korea, dishes likekimchi chigae, bulgogi, tteokbokki.
Its tools are also similar. Sumpitnya is made of steel and flat-shaped, not round likein most restaurant Japan. The top decorated with carved tulips.
Sendoknya, which is yellowish and decorated with carved leaves at the ends, the game show is longer than your average scoop in Indonesia.
While serving plates up to a small container to marinade everything all in white.
If all cutlery would go home directly from North Korea? It didn’t. Behind the Iron Bowl containing rice plastered writings clearly Made In China.
You can find the book on cuisine menu with an explanation of the three languages—Indonesia, Korea, United Kingdom, ranging from baked, sautéed, broiled, fried, andsoups.
The main problem being the language in communicating with a waiter who is not fluent in Indonesia and have a limited vocabulary. Local staff absolutely nothing, so visitors who can not speak Korea should try harder to curiosity answered.
There is a menu that made curious because his name had never heard, Grilled WildPlant aka Dodog roast. But unfortunately the waitress could not explain what kind of plants are processed into food.
“Korea Vegetable,” Choe Un Hyang said when asked more detailed brief about thatdish.
When asked what North Korea‘s typical food in the other, she recommends fish Korea that did not exist in the list menu.
But he had trouble explaining the language Indonesia what types of fish and condiments as well as how to cook. The waitress was just the mention of the name of the fish in the language of Korea.
There is no list of drinks in the menu. Restaurant guests should ask the waiter when you want to drink fresh tea in addition provided free in a small pot placed on the table.
When you sign in to the restaurant, we could see a small refrigerator that containeda variety of beverages, ranging from mineral water, soda, coffee cans to alcohol.
Restaurant guests can order what is in there, or call the other beverages common inrestaurants such as fruit juices because the waiter does not mention in detail what are the list of drinks available.
And again, remember that this is not South Korea restaurant. Name–the name of the food or drink typical of the land of Ginseng will only make the waiter confused.
An example is drinks containing citrus hallabong typical of Jeju Island. When your name is called, hallabong paras waiter thus emits the question mark, it seems that name in his ears.
