About Brandon Kirksey

Anju Bar : A Short Story In Korean, Anju means drinking snacks. Culturally in Korea, it is very common for groups of friends and business colleagues to enjoy each others' company at their favorite local markets where they drink soju and eat communally. What is served at Anju Bar are those traditional dishes that you will commonly find all over Korea but more importantly it is our ode to the fun, vibrant Korean custom that brings friends together with food and celebration- any day of the week. After receiving a Culinary Arts degree, Brandon spent time traveling and cooking in Italy, Korea, Seattle and San Francisco. He has worked at Flour + Water and was the Executive Chef at Girin Korean Steakhouse. He has found his style in his interpretations of classic dishes using modern techniques and cultural perspective.
