At Anju, the tradition of Korean drinking culture dazzles alongside the innovative flair that has earned chef Roy Oh his reputation over the past 11 years. Oh has captivated — and maintained — a devout customer base for his inventive takes on traditional and modern Korean flavours. Whether your celebration calls for Scotch and baked kimchee fried rice, or sparkling soju and chicken wings, the ample menu dances between sweet and umami on a crunchy and tender bedrock of grilled, fried and fermented delights. Don’t leave without trying the sweet potato noodles, the oxtail tortellini and something invigorating from the raw bar. Although Anju had to vacate its 17th Avenue S.W. location earlier this year due to flooding, owners The Concorde Group are searching for a new venue for the restaurant. We look forward to its return with bated breath.
