Part 2 of the unplanned “Eat around Koreatown” day. When the topic of Pork Belly BBQ came up, we ditched our ‘light dinner’ plan and came to Honey Pig, a place specialized in Korean pork belly BBQ.
The grill came with kimchi, beansprout, squid and a huge plate of vegetable. The BBQ onion and garlic added flavors For the 2nd serving we tried the Regular Pork Bellies which I prefer, it was less fatty more thinly sliced.
The Sesame oil + salt dipping sauce is simple yet added so much aroma and flavor to the meat. After we finished both servings of meat, they pour kimchi and rice on top of our greasy grill. Btw my friend told me this post-BBQ rice serving is not a traditional practice, several places popularize it in contemporary Korea and it’s now practiced everywhere.
After the meal I felt so greasy inside out…what an unhealthy dinner compare to the healthy lunch. But it was tasty.
