Golden Pig / Geumdwaeji Sikdang(금돼지식당) – BTS’ Jungkook and Jimin’s favorite 2018 resturant and is on Seoul’s Michelin Guide (How to go, their autographs and what to expect)

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!!

based from my research JK, Jimin sat on the 3rd floor

I didn’t know the 3F is only opened at 6PM so keep this in mind if you want to try your luck in sitting where the boys sat

schedule per floor

a lot of fans left their messages and stickers and it seems like EXO and Yoona even came to eat here as well

and of course I had to leave my mark

Since we were there during lunch time, we sat at the 1F.

We decided to get the Pork Cheek Meat, Bone Pork Belly and Flower Pork Neck. It was so good! This must be why JK and Jimin liked this restaurant.

Rice was not written on the menu so you have to tell them if you want rice

We were also given these cute aprons

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!)
