The spread was not bad looking. There were egg salad and bread!! Risking salmonella I made myself an egg sandwich anyway. The fish and the veggie were as bland as we expected.
Another meat-in-water concoction! This time with noodles. I was so hungry anyway I ate everything. The post-soju-drink munchies!
We knew we were in good hands when dinner was at the Yanggakdo Korean restaurant back in Pyongyang. The kimchi was rich and flavourful.
Then came the legendary Pyongyang Raeng Myon (cold noodles). A popular dish for the summer, buckwheat noodles are served with eggs, pork, sliced pear, and vegetables in an ice-cold broth. I had imagine eating noodles out of a cold broth would be weird but I was so wrong. It was delicious! First you put the white vinegar on the noodles, then mustard and chili sauce before you mix everything up. The noodles had a lot of texture, and I loved the sour and spicy flavours from the condiments. Very refreshing indeed!
The day's favourite: Pyongyang cold noodles!
