On Friday, Mandu will launch Anju, a monthly menu of traditional Korean bar snacks available only from 10 p.m.-1 a.m. Chef Danny Lee is partnering with Jonah Kim of Pabu in Baltimore for the inaugural event that will feature dishes like oysters on the half shell with kimchee cocktail sauce, Korean fried chicken, radishes with uni butter and budae jjigae (a traditional Korean stew).
Cucumber-infused soju and makkoli (a spirit made from fermented wheat and rice) will also be available. Feeling sleepy? Catch the pop-up later on the first Friday of each month.
