In case you are wondering what we are talking about, a bizarre claim has been made by North Korea that Kim Jong-un’s late father Kim Jong-il invented burritos in 2011.

North Korea’s propaganda mouthpiece Rodong Sinmun shared a report claiming that Kim Jong-il had invented burritos, which they call ‘wheat wraps,’ in 2011 before he died.

The story also mentions late Kim Jong-il inventing ‘double bread with meat,’ a dish quite similar to a hamburger.

Rodong Sinmun has also claimed that Kim Jong-un has been taking a great interest in the dish like his father.

In a State TV news footage, North Koreans can be seen eating burritos outside the Kumsong food factory at a stand in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea.

According to people who have escaped North Korea, a large section of the country’s citizens can’t even dream of having such a proper meal.

When asked about burritos, Lee revealed that even the ingredients required to make the dish are not available in North Korea. »
