  1. So I finally got to check out Honey Pig last night and boy I wish I hadn't waited so long. There were seven of us and we were seated after about a 2 minute wait while they cleared off a two round tables that were adjoined together. One of the tables had the grill in the table while the other one used a portable grill burner. For the 7 of us, we ordered 3 orders of the jju-moo-lluk galbi, 3 orders of the gochu jang pork bellies, 3 orders of the marinated pork galbi. We also got 2 orders of the kimcheejigae as well. My favorite of the 3 was the gochu jang pork bellies although all 3 orders
  2. Just thought I'd start this thread since people were asking about it in the WLO thread. My parents got some take-out when it first opened and said it was pretty good. We tried going there a couple of weeks back and the wait was over an hour. Definitely liked the vibe when we first walked in and it reminded of being in Seoul. Anyhow, did some research and was able to find a website although it's mostly in Korean but the menu is translated to English with prices. After looking at the pics and menu, I think I'll have to stop by again soon and this time wait until I'm seated. Anyone been yet care
  3. It looks like Five Guys is a go for Nationals Park. http://blog.washingtonpost.com/dcsportsbog...at_new_par.html
  4. Grover, thanks for the information on the Annandale location. I'm sure I'll be checking it out when I'm in Annandale since it seems like it's a restaurant with other items than the chicken. The one in Lotte Plaza in Germantown is just a take-out type place since it's within Lotte Plaza supermarket and not even with the other restaurants that are on the other side of Lotte Plaza with seating.
  5. I read the NY Times article that I'll link below a couple of months ago and was curious to see how Bon Chon chicken tasted like and to my surprise a Bon Chicken store opened up inside the new Lotte Plaza Int'l supermarket in Germantown. I looked around their website and it looks a new one is also opening up in Annandale [this link has the new location] on 7/15. Anyhow, if you happened to be up in Germantown, I highly recommend you try this korean-style fried chicken. It has a very light flaky skin and juicy meat that tastes wonderful. They have two flavors, soy garlic and a spicy variation. Bo
  6. I actually stopped by tonight and had some take-out. The spicy tuna roll and spicy shrimp tempura roll wasn't too bad. Not as good as a good sushi restaurant but much much better than take-out sushi in a grocery store like Wegmans or what Whole Foods usually has. Also ordered the chicken teriyaki with bok choy and was pleasantly surprised although the portion was pretty small but probably equivalent to the $6 price. All and all, a good alternative for take-out or a quick bite at the counter.
  7. Has anyone checked out this place? I live in Logan Circle and have passed by and was interested if anyone has tried the place out. If the food is good, definitely a good addition to the neighborhood over the Coffee Bar and Jamba Juice that used to be in the space. Here's a Washingtonian link on the opening.
