Honey Pig Gooldaegee Korean Grill

Every time I go to Virginia my cousin Sharon brings me to a Korean restaurant. This time we went to Honey Pig, a popular restaurant in Annadale that’s open for 24 hours.

I read from the other reviews that the place always has lines. We were lucky to find a table for our big group right away.

The place was covered with corrugated metal walls and huge steel exhausts hang from the ceiling. Very youthful and industrial looking.

There wasn’t much variety of free appetizers unlike in the other Korean restaurants I’ve eaten in. I did love the potato salad and the lettuce & onion salad w/ soy vinaigrette served in stainless steel bowls.

The pajeon was terrific! It was chewy and crunchy at the same time. They really cooked it to a crisp just the way I like it.

The pork was tender but unseasoned so you had to dip it in sauce.

Their specialty, which I haven’t seen done anywhere, was grilled kimchi.

The flavor of the marinated beef ribs was delicious but the quality of the beef wasn’t that good. Honey Pig is more well known for their cheap prices than for the quality of their meats. But I wasn’t complaining. Bring on the food!

The servers were expert at knowing when the meat was done and just came to the grill to cut up the beef with giant scissors.

We ordered a bowl of udon noodle soup for the kids. It was simple and not bad at all.

Thanks to John for letting me SIT in his Porsche. Hopefully next time you will let me drive it. Please?

If you’re looking for cheap and hearty Korean barbecue then Honey Pig is for you. If fine quality meats and ambiance is what you’re after go somewhere else.
