About Honey Pig

top-honeypigOur goal at Honey Pig is to create a casual and exciting ambiance where you can enjoy delicious food with family and friends. Korean barbeque is very hands on. You can jump in barbeque meats at your own pace, or if you prefer, our servers will gladly prepare them for you.

Since 2007, we’ve been serving great tasting Korean barbeque in Duluth. Being the first Korean barbeque restaurant in the area, it piqued the interest of many and as our popularity has risen customers now visit from all over Georgia, and as far away as Alabama, South Carolina, and Florida, swarmed. Unlike most Korean barbeque restaurants, Honey Pig utilizes the iron-cast lid (aka “Ssot-Dduk-Kung”) method of grilling. Shaped like an upside down wok with a cylindrical handle at the center, the lid is heated by a flame beneath and meats, Kimchi, and bean sprouts are grilled directly on top.

We have carefully designed our menu selections to offer the best quality of pork, beef, seafood, chicken, duck, along with unique meats such as pork skin, beef tongue, and intestines. If it’s your first visit, we recommend trying the Honey Pig Sam-Gyup-Sal (Pork Belly). Though the two can’t compare, Sam-Gyup-Sal is similar to bacon, but much thicker, juicier, and tender with marbling of fat and meat near perfection. What makes our Sam-Gyup-Sal unique above all others is that ours comes from the Kurobuta/Berkshire pig. In the realm of Asian pork, Kurobuta pork is considered supreme. Luckily, you do not have to travel to the Far East to try this succulent and flavorful porkand watching it prepared in front of you will make your mouth water in anticipation. If you’re not a big fan of pork, we also have a wide selection of prime beefs and fresh seafood, including lobster, Black Tiger shrimp, Kobe-style short ribs, and many other meats.

What’s a meal without drinks? We offer alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for you to enjoy. Want to try some soju or Korean beers with your meal? No problem. Want something a little strong, but sweet? Korean fruit wines should do the trick. Want something very traditional and unfamiliar? Then you can try Beksehju (Korean herbal wine) or Makkulli (Korean unrefined rice wine). From beginning to end, we strive to make the meal delicious, exciting and fascinating for everyone.
