Fancy new coffee shop opens in Pyongyang

Andray Abrahamian of Choson Exchange samples Pyongyang's latest coffee shop

An espresso cost just over 4 US dollars, while that foul corn syrup nectar, Coca-Cola, was 5 dollars. Pat Bing Su, a shaved ice and red bean summer treat that is popular in all Koreas was almost 10 US, though large enough to share. Green tea lattes are also available for those who think that milk and green tea have too long been kept apart.

The menu also features waffles – called ‘bread sweets’, ice cream and cocktails, some with saucy names such as ‘coconut kiss’ and more innocent sounding names, such as ‘happy birthday’.
