Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Chef Roy Oh moved to Calgary in 2003 where he found his passion for food while cooking for his church's Christmas parties.
Not having any formal training, Oh took a job at Joey Tomato's and started learning the basics. After two and a half years at Joeys, a short stint at the Glencoe Golf & Country Club and a stage at Monsoon, he was ready to bring his unique brand of Korean food to the public.
Oh is the self-taught chef and owner of @anjurestaurant in Calgary. Anju, which translates to “food you eat with alcohol,” opened its doors in an obscure downtown location on New Year’s Eve in 2008. Slowly people started hearing about this little restaurant doing Korean food with a modern twist, and Anju was put on the culinary map. It has since grown in reputation and moved to a bigger and better location. @roy_ohhhhhh #TasteOfHomeYYC #YYCFoodie #TopChefChallenge #RMHC #KeepingFamiliesClose
