Europe’s first “North Korea-Themed” restaurant opens in Amsterdam

The Netherlands has reportedly got its own North Korean themed restaurant, Huffingtonpost reports.

Amidst Amsterdam’s romantic canals, hash bars and red light district, there now lives Europe’s first North Korean restaurant, reports Agence France-Presse.

Dubbed “Pyongyang Restaurant,” the authentic eatery serves dishes like roasted oysters, black chicken soup, sashimi and kimchi, all cooked by a North Korean trained chef, according to the restaurant’s website.

But they aren’t just serving up North Korean cuisine; Dutch owner Remco van Daal has also set up a cultural center where visitors can look at art, schedule a trip to North Korea or take part in a bit of Karaoke.
