Opened all the way back in 1972, Jungin Myeonok is a Michelin-rated restaurant that specializes in Pyeongyang-style naengmyeon, as well as other traditional North Korean food.
The recipe for its naengmyeon is a closely-guarded family secret, passed down to the owner from his parents, who fled North Korea during the war. Besides naengmyeon, the restaurant also serves classic North Korean dishes, such as suyuk (boiled slices of beef), pyeonyuk (boiled slices of pork), traditional North Korean-style dumplings, and mung bean pancakes.
The restaurant is very popular amongst the legions of office workers in the area and gets very crowded during lunch time, especially during the hot summer months when people are craving a cold, refreshing bowl of naengmyeon.
