The Mundok Restaurant in Taesong District of Pyongyang is famous for loach dishes.
Loach soup mixed with pumpkin and savoury and crisp fried loach are the favourite dishes of customers.
From ancient times, the Koreans have widely used tasty and nutritious loach in their dietary life.
The dishes made of loach, which is called “insam in water”, are efficacious in restoring the liver function and treating such diseases as tuberculosis, diabetes and impotence.
Han Yong Nam, an old resident in Ryonghung-dong, Taesong District, said that he has been free from high blood pressure and anaemia since he began to eat loach dishes of the restaurant.
