Taewoo Kim grew up in Korea, leaving to travel the world at the age of 19 discovering cuisines across Asia and Australia.
After back packing for five and a half years, Taewoo settled in London. He gained experience working in Japanese restaurants across the city for five years including Gilgamesh, Sake no Hana, Oka and Nozomi.
In 2016, Taewoo started his own food venture, Anju celebrating his Korean heritage with a stall at Fitzrovia Food Market (which still operates) and at festivals across the UK.
Opening in February 2019, Anju held an evening residency at Blend Café on Green Lanes which is now closed.
The long-term residency at The Gun in Hackney opened August 2019.
