Pyongyang Okryugwan Restaurant

Grand Millennium Al Wahda.

Let me begin by saying that I've NEVER met a North Korean in my life! So imagine my surprise earlier this evening when I run into a North Korean restaurant. And that too Okryu-Gwan. I am personally fascinated by North Korean news & I remember researching this restaurant (as I'm a food professional). It's a 57-year-old brand that originated in the DPRK capital city of Pyongyang. They chose to open their Abu Dhabi branch in the Millennium Hotel Al Wahda to take advantage of the numerous Chinese tourists who check in here. It was an all-female crew. And they were wearing the beautiful Joseonot national dress, gliding along gracefully. They do live shows every evening. And to my surprise, the same girls who were singing & playing instruments finished the show, then went about bartending, taking orders & serving. It was a surreal experience, to say the least. I'll be visiting them more in the near future to try out their menu items. They have a central seating area with several smaller private dining rooms.
