Quite the hidden gem is Anju Restaurant which literally translates to dishes served with alcohol. This modern Korean dining concept now sits shoulder to shoulder with some of the finest restaurants on Tras Street. The space is elegant and cosy. Showcasing a refined intersection between subtle modernity and tradition with muted earthy tones, leather and hazelnut wooden furnishings.
From an experimental black bean mascarpone cheese on sourdough starter to the nourishing Galbi Jjim (slow-braised beef short ribs), the food here is a mix of traditional Korean dishes and their contemporary interpretations. The kitchen is made up of an exuberant young team helmed by South Korean Head Chef Marco Kim – formerly of two-Michelin starred Jaan – alongside Pastry Chef Doreen Ting – formerly of one-Michelin starred Restaurant Labyrinth.
