Korean Barbecue

Some former co-workers at the animal hospital had wanted to go to Korean barbecue together. Last night, we finally arranged it. We went to Honey Pig in Ellicott City.

We arrived at 10:30pm. It was packed!

There were many Koreans eating there.  I took that as a good sign.

We picked from a picture menu, and the server fired up what looked like an inverted wok on the table, and cooked all our meats in front of us. I ordered sliced pork belly. It tasted a lot like bacon. I loved it. The meats came with lettuce leaves which you were supposed to use like tortillas. There were also many garnishes you could add to your lettuce taco thingy. Many of them were spicy. I liked the pickled items.

The meat was warm and tasty.  The table was filled with delicious flavors.

The only drawback was that the restaurant is a 40 minute drive from my house. I got home at 1:40am. I think next time I go there, I’ll start a little earlier.

    Holy cats! That is so late! I can’t imagine staying up past midnight anymore. But at least you had a delicious meal to give you strength. They sound like a great group of night owls people.

    Glad you identified the flavor of those things that look like fried pork rinds on top of the inverted heat thingy or I would have thought, “Bet they tasted like pork rinds, too!” Shows how much I know about Korean cooking.

    You are a brave soul to dine that late in the evening, too. My guts would make me pay for that all night. However, I wager this was more about the fellow diners than the eating – glad you got to reconnect now that you don’t see them every day.
