Besides ordering all our favourites from our first visit–the Black Bean Mascarpone with Oven-baked Sourdough Chips ($16) and the Domi Carpaccio ($24) just to name a few–we made sure to try new items on our second visit to Anju.
The Yuk Hoe or Beef Tartare ($28) which I’d had my eye on previously, was one of them. Deliciously seasoned, the chopped beef which had a really satisfying mouthfeel and chew, needed to be mixed thoroughly with the charred bits of kale and quail’s egg yolk. The meat exuded a lovely fragrance and was even more enjoyable paired with the refreshing ribbons of sweet Korean pear. No surprise my god-daughter voted this one of her favourites of the night as she is a fan of good beef tartare.
