Telegraph – “North Korea launches perfect Italian pizza. North Korea has opened its first pizzeria after a decade of clandestine international research.”
The launch of Pyongyang’s first Italian restaurant meanwhile brings to fruition a ten-year effort by Kim Jong-il – a renowned gourmand and lover of western food – to create the perfect pizza and pasta in his homeland. Last year a delegation of local chefs was sent by Kim to Naples and Rome to learn the proper Italian techniques after their homegrown efforts to mimic Italian cuisine were found by Kim to contain “errors”. In the late 1990s Kim brought a team of Italian pizza chefs to North Korea to instruct his army officers how to make pizza, a luxury which is now being offered to a tiny elite able to afford such luxuries in a country that cannot feed many of its 24 million inhabitants.
North Korea notified international aviation and maritime agencies of its plan to launch a “communications satellite” between April 4-8, further heightening tensions in the region. On Monday Japan and South Korea announced their intention to demand UN action against North Korea if it test-fired a Taepodong-2 missile in defiance of UN resolutions imposed after Pyongyang tested its atomic bomb in 2006.
Ummm, bro…you’re 114% wrong about bad pizza in Pyongyang. As it turns out, the city plays host to “perfect” pizza and pasta. You stand corrected.
P.S. – I absolutely love how this article starts strong with Italian food and ends even stronger with intercontinental ballistic missiles.
Zac you kidding me? That pizza looks like a fucking abortion bro. I got better pies in my freezer and it’s well-documented how much I hate frozen pizza. That “model” shot of the cooked pie looks exactly like a Mama Celeste. And that’s what they serve to the rich people over there. I can’t imagine what they feed poor people. Oh right, nothing.
Zac does make a great point about the end of the article though. Only North Korea could be the focus of an innocent story about pizza that casually wraps up discussing UN sanctions and Taepoong-2 missiles flying around in East Asia.
PS – It’s almost funny how ignorant the citizens of North Korea are to the ways of the rest of the world. Like look at the Iron chef of North Korea’s face with those two floppy Tim Kurkjian boob-hand pizzas. Bro thinks he for real just whipped up a fire meal. 100% chance he jizzes himself and commits an honor suicide at the site of a Lou Malnati’s:
