Soo is totally worth the drive to Capital. I can't wait to see what this Golden Pig place ends up being. Crazy they don't have a website up yet!

Golden Pig Korean Restaurant is going to open on W. Chatham near High House. It's in the old Casa de las Enchiladas building. The place has a horrible track record, but they seem to be putting some lipstick on that Golden Pig, so my fingers are crossed.

I like a lot of worldly cuisines, but am not that up to speed on Korean (save for the standards like Kim Chee, Boulgogi, and Bipmbop or whatever that's called). I'll need to try some of this fried chicken, sounds pretty tasty.
Finally made it to Golden Pig for dinner last night (second time there, other time was mid-day lunch). They have the fried chicken, it's not on the menu, but I asked and they said it is a special. I think it was $17.95 and looked to be enough chicken to fill two of the Colonel's biggest buckets. Two of us didn't come close to eating half of it. I have never had the dish before, so nothing to compare to, but it was REALLY good. Smothered in a hot sauce that seemed to be based with Hoisin and Peanuts (just guessing). Really hot, really messy, really good. GF couldn't eat much of it, too spicy for her, so we got dumpling soup too, which was insanely delish.

I recommend this place highly. Please go there. It's good, the service is friendly, and I want to see them succeed for selfish reasons (so I can go back).

Sounds very good - but not the standard Korean fried chicken. Which is typically wings and no peanuts.

But I'll be sure to go when they do not have kareoke or a chopstick contest scheduled.

I haven't tried them personally but I have friends say that the fried chicken was good.

This just in... BBQ Chicken USA is opening a location in the new H-mart in Cary. Can't go wrong with their selections as I've frequented their establishment for Chicken and Beer in Virginia.


That and the bakery Tous Les Jours - Tous Les Jours Bakery - (also in the Hmart) are going to be welcome additions to the Triangle!
