After Work Bevvies and Bites: ANJU Restaurant

ANJU Restaurant is one of those gems tucked away in a corner of downtown Calgary. And once you’ve visited, you can’t help but go back to satiate your craving for their amazing food. Anju, the Korean word for tapas, is the restaurant’s namesake and style of dining – they’ve taken Korean fare and transformed it into tapas-style dishes providing patrons with an amazing menu that is sure to delight. It’s definitely a must-stop spot for Friday after-work drinks and nosh.

Located in a converted two-storey house in Calgary’s core the space is as unique as the menu. Enjoy dinner on the main level dining room or head upstairs for cocktails and snacks in the welcoming lounge.

Looking for an early evening libation and light snack? ANJU has got you covered. The tapas-style menu is perfect for sharing with your fellow diners. Order the crispy tofu with sautéed kimchi and citrus aioli, or the pork belly lettuce wraps for the table. Yeah, that’s right…we said pork belly.

And of course, no visit is complete without an order of their famous yam fries. In fact, they stand so firmly behind their claim of having the best yam fries in Calgary, they offer a money back guarantee if you are not 100 per cent satisfied with the delectable little treats. Don’t take our word for it, go and try them yourselves!

And you can’t forget the beverages. They offer a great selection of wine and beer, but it’s ANJU Restaurant’s fusion cocktails that really get your mouth watering. They have the classics such as mojitos, but each with an ANJU twist – many of their cocktails have Koju, a Korean rice-based liquor in place of more traditional spirits.

Walking distance from many of Calgary’s office towers, ANJU is the perfect place for young professionals to saunter over after work with friends or colleagues in tow. ANJU Restaurant, 507 10th St. SW, Calgary.
