    According to Reuters, US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un had a working lunch on Tuesday that simultaneously combined the flavors of East and West.

    The main courses included beef short rib confit, served with potato dauphinois and steamed brocolli. Sweet and sour crispy pork and fried rice with an "XO" chilli sauce as well as a Korean dish called "daegu jorim", which is described as soy braised cod with radish and Asian vegetables.

    For dessert, the two leaders and their delegations had a choice of dark chocolate tartlet ganache, vanilla ice cream with cherry coulis and tropezienne, a cream-filled pastry, news agency said.

    Following the one-on-one talks, Trump and Kim continued the bilateral summit in Singapore in an expanded format.
