Honey Pig Gooldaegee Korean BBQ in Ellicott City looks ready to start grilling meats in its hipster atmosphere, but, up close, it's still a construction zone.
(Update: Looks like Honey Pig is opening on April 1, 2010. Check out this later post.)
I rolled past Sunday afternoon. The sign is up, and there is already a banner advertising grand opening specials. But they're still building the restaurant inside. Tables and grilling vents have been installed. But there are tools scattered everywhere along with the corrugated metal that Honey Pig installs on the wall to import the feel of a cool university neighborhood in Seoul.
People were working inside even on a snowy Sunday afternoon. That's good, but the place still looks weeks away from opening -- although I'm terrible at those estimates.
Honey Pig will open in the Princess shopping center on Rte 40 just west of the Soft Stuff ice cream stand and the Forest Diner. From east-bound Rte 40, you turn right at the red sign for Quest Fitness and drive up hill. The Princess shopping center is up behind Double T diner that directly faces Rte 40.
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.
