New in town: Anju, Tanjong Pagar — Korean dining at its finest

As a fan of Korean cuisine, the opening of new Korean restaurants always excites me. A new kid on the block that recently hit my radar is none other than Anju—a Korean restaurant-cum-bar serving authentic fine Korean cuisine alongside an array of exquisite drinks. 

Translated to mean ‘food eaten with alcohol’, Anju is chef Kim Gi Deok’s latest endeavour into Singapore’s dining scene. Located at Tanjong Pagar, the restaurant dons a chic and warm ambience that is both casual and classy at the same time.

Instead of rustic Korean favourites such as bibimbap and boiling pots of communal stews, expect gorgeous plates of thoughtfully curated dishes that showcase the beauty of the cuisine at its best. 

Whet your appetite with a cold appetiser. For a refreshing start, the Domi Carpaccio (S$24) makes for a great option with the combination of a red snapper carpaccio garnished with yuja (yuzu) marinated seaweed. Otherwise, why not challenge yourself to something a little different with Anju’s Yuk Hoe (S$28), a beef tartare with charred smoky kale topped with quail egg yolk?

Whilst crispy pancake lovers will enjoy Anju’s Hogam Jeon (S$25), it was their Bossam (S$45) that intrigued me with just its visuals alone. Charred at all the right places, this plate of braised pork belly was glistening under the spotlight. Served on the side are three different types of pickles for you to pair and wrap up in fresh lettuce according to your preference.

What is Anju without its alcohol? Bringing you Korea’s finest booze sourced and imported directly from Seoul, Anju’s alcohol list will delight you with its extensive selection. Love your glass of bubbles? Then go for the eatery’s Champagne Makgeolli (S$75). Otherwise, for a sweet and fruity touch, the Jeju Mandarin (S$32) and An Apple A Day (S$34) will surely tickle your fancy with their honey-like aroma and light mouthfeel.
