This ONLY hotel is actually 'motel' and has only one restaurant. We couldn't help eating this food. I'm pretty expert at making and enjoying the Bibimbop (one of the easiest Korean food), but North Korean Bibimbop is radically different. It tastes something raw.

I had my first meal and then had a couple of beers with my meal. After dinner when I met up with my minders they then told me that one beer is free per day. After that is extra. Thanks guys.
Favorite Dish: The beer U(although the label is guaranteed to fall off.

Address: Yanggakdo International Hotel, Yanggakd Island
Beside the Food we got at the Yangakkdo Hotel (which was excellent, too excellent for such a county) we had a few times lunch/dinner at other places.
- Once we had lunch near the Friendship Exhibition near Myohyang Mountains in a old building which was a hotel, it was EMPTY.
- Once near the DMZ at Panmunjom (after the entrance to the DMZ to turn left)
- We went to a restaurant in South Pyongyang near the Worker Party Monument, the restaurant was very nice and people have been very friendly, I liked to Korean Beer very much!
- Once we went to a Duck Restaurant in Pyongyang and there have also been other North Koreans (no other tourists), the restaurant was excellent and it was fun to have dinner together with our guides.

Korean Restaurant, Yanggakdo Hotel
Farewell dinner together with minders.
Favorite Dish: Food
You will not get hungry (if you do not eat like Romans). There is standard to have a continental breakfast, lunch and dinner. Normally, you will eat without your guides, but if you are in a restaurant outside hotel and at the farewell dinner you guides will be accompanied. Dog meat (tastes like reindeer if it helps to choose) is provided in the farewell dinner by request.

You will eat in your hotel every breakfast and dinner - save for one night when your guides may let you eat in a local restaurant - if they think they can trust you. [getting along with your guides is the key to a more relaxed trip] You will stay in one hotel in the city, and one hotel in the mountains. During the day, have no choice as to the restaurant you frequent - you will eat like a king but be prepared for frequent meals of multiple courses. Most restaurants are vast ornate halls with about seven foreign diners. The menu is standard Korean fare, kimchi, noodles etc. and is, on the whole, pretty good. You'll feel more than a little guilty when you realise that the bulk of the population can barely feed itself and you see people grubbing for roots in the fields.
Favorite Dish: Don't eat dog or dairy. Everything else is lovely. be warned - during the trip there will be no attempt made to conceal from you people grubbing for roots and seeds in the fields. You may feel more than a little guilty when you realise that the bulk of the population can barely feed itself whilst you can hardly finish the food provided for you.
