Honey Pig offers both AYCE & a la carte items-the oversized dome-shaped grill covers a majority of the table, but cooks a lot! The kimchi and signature honey pig pork belly are the real winners here!
Health Advisory - Huge Catepillar in soup – This is the first time I've been to the Duluth area. My wife wanted to go on a little trip to Atlanta and we decided to stop for food on our way through Duluth. We wanted Korean food so we searched online for the ones in the area and chose Honey Pig because of the higher reviews.
We arrived at Honey Pig at 4pm today. We were seated and ordered our food. The place had only one customer not counted my wife and I. When the food came out it looked alright. We ordered the prime rib korean bbq and a spicy kimchi tofu soup. The prime rib had no seasoning. I could deal with that since most of the side dishes were salty.
Here's comes the shocker. As we were eating, I heard my wife drop her spoon making noises like someone was just murdered.
I look over to what she was pointing at and in her bowl of spicy tofu soup was a very large what seemed to be a caterpillar. I kid you not. It was 2.5-3 inches long and about half an inch wide. I immediately yelled for the waiter and he came over and I showed him the insect. At this point my wife was already coughing and gagging.
He offered no explanation other than its never happened before. He said there were some mexicans in the back cooking the food. We immediately left and phoned the health dept.
Hope the cooks and/or whoever prepared this meal is fired.
In a more perfect world, he would have been force fed the soup while loosing fingers for putting my wife through that. I'm pissed as well and feel nauseated because I had tasted the soup earlier to her finding that large insect.
Like cooking but hate doing dishes? – First let me say, the amount of actual effort you have to put in to "cook" your various meats is minimal. Maybe you have to flip them with the tongs and move it to your plate, but that's it. Which is understandable, since Korean cuisine is based on the concept of doing as little as possible between games of World of Warcraft, which can cause carpal tunnel in a matter of hours.
Also, no matter how little effort you and your tablemates but into the meal, it will taste great. The cuts of meat are brought raw to the table and they are so well-marbled you will want to eat them right away. (Do not do so, this is frowned upon). We had several different meats, some marinated, some not, and the star of the punch was the Honey Pig. If you go, do not skip it. The mushrooms were also delicious, but are impossible to cut with human teeth or the steel chopsticks that are provided, so they are not recommended for first dates.
Afterward, you will want to stroll over to the Korean bakery next door. This is a terrible mistake. 1) The pastries are not good and 2) The Korean soap operas being shown there (with subtitles) are incredibly depressing.
Best Korean style meat house around town. – I've been to Honey Pig restaurant in Duluth twice so far and the food is just fantastic. They have a variety of cuts from pork or beef. They also have a couple seafoods like jumbo shrimps and scallops. The servers are very friendly and the service is not bad either. The restaurant has its own character with all the colorful pigs at the entrance and the tastefully decorated bathrooms. The food is beyond exceptional especially for those who seek new and intuitive ways to eat korean bbq. Everything from the interior design to the jazz music in the background, Honey Pig is one of the best Korean bbqs I've ever been to.
The 'burbs get another solid ethnic eatery with this Korean beauty in Duluth. – In Short
This shiny, modern OTP "pork belly house" can a little intimidating for first-timers, but once mastered, this Korean 'cue is a rousing and conversation-worthy-experience. Dishes come out at a rapid pace and are cooked on a table-dwelling, upside-down-wok-device that acts as a sort of self-monitoring hibachi grill. Succulent pork belly and beef tenderloin sizzle among the sprouts and spicy kimchi, while a myriad of sauces, salads, and rice papers make for an endless array of self-invented combinations. Servers descend upon your table with a constant sense of urgency, shoveling fried rice into leftover meat remnants and stirring in recently grilled octopus for good measure. To cleanse the pallet from the massive feast (sure to leave you with leftovers) fresh watermelon arrives with the check.
