Catering businesses in Pyongyang have sprung up after they have started to take orders for delivery of sushi and hamburgers among other food items from mobile phone users.

"Mobile phones are enormously popular, especially among the elite and wealthy traders who can afford them," the Wall Street Journal quoted a Korean resident, as saying.
