Last 2018, I saw fan accounts translating stories about Jungkook and Jimin going to a BBQ restaurant frequently.
Intrigued, I did all the research I could before the trip since there were not a lot of people who talked about this place. Luckily we were able to find the place!!
Trivia: Did you know that Golden Pig is part of Seoul’s Michelin Guide this 2019?? Yes it is true!!
If you are curious, you can read the post about the place here: https://guide.michelin.co.kr/en/restaurant/geumdwaeji-sikdang/
How to go to Golden Pig or Geumdwaeji Sikdang (금돼지식당) :
1. Get down at Yaksu Station (line 3, 6)
2. Get out of exit 2
As soon as you get out of exit 2, you will see this
Since we were there during lunch time, we sat at the 1F.
After having our lunch, I was having a crisis whether or not to ask if I could take a look of Jungkook and Jimin’s autographs and how would I ask them (since my Korean is not that fluent).
I told myself, you know what if I don’t just go and ask I might never get the chance again so I googled the restuarant’s Instagram (that has photos of their autographs) and showed it to the waiter who assisted us and asked him if I can take a look.
He immediately nodded and told me to take the clearbook filled with autographs, sit down and take my time!! (He was so nice)
HERE ARE THEIR AUTOGRAPHS!!!
Even if the 3F was not opened, I decided to take a peak so I can see how it looks like (plus I wanted a photo of where Jimin sat!)

This is so detailed. Thank you. I bookmarked this and will use it as a guide when I go back to Korea 💜
Hi Michelle, I am so glad I was able to make this post useful for you 💜
I was quite scared of placing this in my Seoul itinerary because I wasn’t sure if they had an English menu (and my Korean is far from fluent as well) but seeing that they do, I’m now definitely going here on my trip this October! 💜 I just have to know though, when you asked your waiter if you could take a look at the autographs, did you ask him in Korean or English? 👀
Aww! I’m so glad you found your way to my blog and that it was helpful for your trip to Seoul this October 💜 I actually made sign languages because their english was not that good 😆 I showed the photo of their autographs and did the “can I see” with hand movements and they immediately understood it 🙂
Omg I see! Guess I’ll have to do that as well since I’m already there haha~ 👌🏻 Thanks for replying so quickly! 💜
Don’t worry! The people working there are very nice 😊have fun on your trip this October 💜💜
hi! i was a little bit confused with the store hours. can you please clarify? are they open from 12 noon to 1AM? thanks
Hi jiminjams, I think they might mean 12nn – 1 am. I had lunch there around 1 pm 🙂
