North Korean-style cold buckwheat noodles (Pyongyang Naengmyeon) was brought to the limelight after it was featured on the menu on the historic summit held between North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un and South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in on 27 April 2018. Long lines of diners queued at the popular naengmyeon eateries across the South Korea’s capital, Seoul.

This popular North Korea’s signature dish, Pyongyang Naengmyeon is served in crispy cold broth garnished with pieces of meat, vegetables and hard-boiled egg, particularly popular during the hot summer. Diners will usually cut the long buckwheat noodles with a pair of scissors, some may even add vinegar or mustard according to their taste.
