Korean BBQ is up there in my top 10 favorite foods. While I don’t have it often, it is such a treat when I do. I love the food, the experience and getting to try new dishes every time I go. The only thing I don’t love is smelling like grilled meat for the next day in a half, but that is a risk I am willing to take!!
Honey Pig Korean BBQ is located out in Annandale, VA, about 30 minutes outside of the city of DC. While they have other locations around the DMV, this is the only one I have been to. The whole Honey Pig experience is glorious one. It is big industrial type of vibe with big grill tables and KPOP music videos playing on every screen. The menu is endless.. you can do a traditional KBBQ selection with one choice of meat or many, soups, noodles, rice, dumplings and way more.
I always love to pick a meat platter, that has a variety of options, as it gives you more than just one flavor. I personally love the beef platter or the pork belly and octopus. I also love getting the pan fried dumplings to start because Korean dumplings are another type of delicious, unlike gyoza or dim sum.
Every meat/meat platter for KBBQ comes with sides automatically (aka you don’t have to order them they just come). You get a house salad with simple ginger dressing, a bowl of white rice, spicy kimchi, pickled radishes, broccoli salad and more. You might think, “wow these portions are small” but trust me, you will be stuffed to the brim.
Overall KBBQ is so much fun and equally delicious. Who doesn’t like DIY BBQ?
