North Korean cuisine is part of the wider Korean cuisine, but with some influence from Manchurian/Chinese dishes, as well as a more contemporary take on western food.
Some of the staple foods in North Korea are rice, noodles, kimchi, bulgogi, and soju.
North Korean food tends to be less spicy and more sour than South Korean food, and it also uses more fresh ingredients.
Some of the dishes that originated in North Korea are naengmyeon (cold noodles), chokbal (pig’s trotters), and kajami shik’ae (fermented flounder).
North Korea also has some street food, such as cookies, dumplings, and sweet potatoes, and its first pizzeria opened in 2009.
