Pork belly buns and Asian street food take over Uptown Dallas bar


Uptown Dallas will soon get a new Asian restaurant that vows to take us on a one-of-a-kind culinary and mixology journey across Asia. Called Anju, it’s an elevated Asian street food concept that will open at 2901 Thomas Ave., in the space most recently occupied by City Council Bar.


The space is currently undergoing a renovation with an official opening penciled in for March. In the interim, they’re doing a transitional preview of the menu to share and refine their best dishes.

How Singapore street food got recognized as a UNESCO treasure

Some civilizations chronicle their pasts with art or books. Others pass on history orally through folklore. In Singapore, the tale of how a humble fishing village in Southeast Asia evolved into a buzzing modern metropolis often comes in spoonfuls of peppery pork rib soup or bites of fried egg noodles at its hawker centers.

Across the city-state, the ubiquitous open-air food complexes are packed with closet-sized stalls, manned by hawkers—businesspeople who both cook and sell fare from Hainanese-style chicken to Peranakan laksa (lemongrass-coconut noodles). For visitors, hawker centers might just seem like jumbo food courts: Follow your nose or the longest line, then pay a few Singapore dollars for a trayful of chow to enjoy at a shared table.
