About Honey Pig

Meals often feel like a party at this K-Pop-blasting Korean barbecue destination. Bring a big group, order a round of soju, and get ready to eat a whole lot of meat. The staff efficiently dotes on the tabletop grills, flipping pieces of sweet soy-marinated ribs as they start to char and slicing up pork belly. If you want to venture beyond the grill, go for a bowl of buckwheat noodles with cucumber, Asian pear, and hard-boiled egg in an icy beef broth. (The famously chewy noodles are cut with scissors.) Also good: Pan-fried pork-and-beef dumplings; bulgogi.
