It should come as no surprise that the line up for a seat at Miku Restaurant is lengthy on both weekdays and weekends.
With an expansive harbour view looking off to the mountains, guests can enjoy delectable Japanese fine dining creations in an unparalleled environment. We spent a better part of a sunny morning on location, eagerly awaiting our introduction to the team’s latest spring/summer menu creations. As the pioneer of Aburi Sushi in Canada, Miku Restaurant continues to surprise and delight the industry with their team’s creativity.
The light and refreshing Aburi Hamachi Crudo is a lovely dish featuring Japanese yellowtail, tosaka seaweed, frisée, sansho cucumber vinaigrette, watermelon radish, compressed grapes, and citrus serrano coulis. The design of the dish encourages consumption of the fish along with the colourful greens, marrying the natural oils of the yellowtail with the fresh, crunchy texture of the greens.
Whereas the Aburi Hamachi Crudo makes for a perfect starter plate for the table, the Aburi Prime would be the star of the show as the main course. The Aburi Prime collection is Miku Restaurant’s vision for the future of Aburi Sushi.
This premium nigiri selection features carefully selected seafood paired with elevated sauces and garnishes in order to create the perfect bite. Aburi Prime emotes the coveted omakase sushi experience on one plate.
