Honey Pig BBQ is technically not in DC.
It's Annandale in Northern Virginia, about 30 minutes outside of DC. It's hidden in a little shopping center and you'd probably never think to go in if you just walked by it.
Even on the inside, there's not much to see
It's a small with low ceiling and metal walls. They are usually blasting K-pop music and dinners can feel like a party.
Honey Pig is, at its heart, a family owned joint
Even though the franchise has grown into seven Honey Pigs around the DMV area, the Annandale one is the original and the best. And it still has that small, mom and pop type feel.
The real reason to visit, of course, is the food.
Honey Pig is known for their fantastic Korean BBQ especially bulgogi, which is thinly sliced pork belly served along with sauces of sesame oil and salt, and a sweet secret sauce.
But there's plenty of meat to go around!

Place your order and the servers prepare in front of you!
Just sit back and relax as the skilled servers cook your meats to perfection at your table. Then, you can dive in, savoring the different flavors, styles and sides.
Honey Pig is the place to go whenever you're hit with a craving.
They are open 24 hours a day so if you want some late night Korean BBQ, this is the spot for you!
Honey Pig is a DC local spot that everyone should try at least once!
