Honey Pig Gooldaegee Korean BBQ is bringing its Korean barbeque from Annandale to Ellicott City, according to an anonymous comment from yesterday and some Howard County building permits.
Does anyone know the time table to open? The work isn't complete on electrical and plumbing permits issued in December 2009. Honey Pig drew its first permit in August 2009, but they were still passing plumbing inspections yesterday. (They got a 1,000 gallon grease trap. Is that something that I want to know?)
Anyone have thoughts about how Honey Pig will compare to the Ellicott City establishment like Shin Chon Garden or Bethany Seafood House? The Annandale location is a 24-hour joint that was very hot for a while after it opened. The Washington Post review highlights the food and says that its cheaper than other BBQ restaurants and dominated by a young crowd. There are comments on Chowhound and Don Rockwell. You should also check out Arthur K who writes good reviews on Yelp, where there are dozens of opinions. Lot of talk about Honey Pig looking like Seoul.
Thanks so much for the tips. Check out my post about the other new restaurants in Howard County. If you want Korean food before Honey Pig opens, definitely check out Shin Chon Garden or all of my posts about Korean food in Howard County.
