Chongnyu Restaurant, which is well-known for serving national dishes, has famous cooks.

Expert in roasted dishes

Kim Chol Ung, who graduated from the public catering faculty of present Pyongyang Jang Chol Gu University of Commerce, has been working as a cook at the restaurant for nearly 40 years.

His forte is to promptly process fresh eels and roast them seasoned with spices in an oven.

It is said that the secret of sustaining the unique taste of roasted eel is to combine a proper proportion of spices and regulate the time and temperature of roasting.

Roasting eels in a way for helping digestion, fully satisfying the nutritional needs and pleasing the eye is the standard Kim always maintains in cooking.

He says: I feel happy when I see the people relishing the dish I prepared; I think there is nothing more worthwhile than serving them.

The cook also has a knack of roasting duck, pork, beef, venison, turkey and fish.

Last year, he was awarded the title of Merited Cook.

Master of terrapin dishes

As a master of terrapin dishes, Merited Cook Kim Kyong Suk prepares steamed terrapin, terrapin sushi, fried terrapin, terrapin porridge, terrapin broth, terrapin tea, etc.

She has recently developed and introduced an ultrasonic vibration blood removing device, which makes it possible to reduce the time of cooking terrapin dishes and retain their original tastes.

With a 36-year-long career, she can make any kind of hot and cold terrapin dishes.

She was awarded special and top prizes at different cooking festivals held every year.

She says: Famous dishes are not products of fine materials, but of the cooks’ sincere attitude.
