If you've never ventured into a Korean barbecue restaurant but have an inkling that tons of grilled meat cooked in front of you might be fun, then get thee to Honey Pig. It's about the most delicious, least intimidating Korean restaurant imaginable. This isn't to say that Honey Pig is inauthentic or watered down. On the contrary, the samgyeopsal jip is a specialized Korean barbecue house that deals in pork belly. There are numerous pork belly options, including a number of marinated versions, but the house specialty--the honey pig--is the way to go. Winner of Best Korean 2009.
Price: $$ ($10-$20)
