3400 W 8th St Los Angeles, CA
A dancing, happy animatronic pig and the aroma of Korean spices and cooking meat greets you at the adorably named Los Angeles Koreatown BBQ spot, Honey Pig.
The spacious room is perfect for groups and they’re kid friendly (Van came out of there spotted head to toe with sticky rice).
The domed cooker doesn’t over do the meats and a friendly staff comes by to help with cooking so you can concentrate on chatting with friends under the influence of huge bottles or beer and soju.
A simple but delicious scallion salad starts things off brilliantly. Definitely a dish I should try at home.
Thin strips of marinated beef and pork belly were excellent and the condiments amazing. Loved the bean paste and salt and pepper oil.
It was my first time having kimchee hot temperature wise (though the spicy kick here is no joke too) and it was yummy.
Be sure to opt for the fried rice towards the end, where a server will mix all the left overs with rice and veggies. So good.
