[image_with_animation animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self” img_link=”http://bit.ly/1woSoDA” image_url=”9892″]

Miku Restaurant Vancouver Downtown is located where Aqua Riva once was at Granville Square. This high-profile waterfront location is lovely with a great view of Five Sails. Miku Restaurant is founded by Seigo Nakamura, sister restaurant to Minami Yaletown; and has been known as the place to go for Aburi sushi. Aburi sushi (flame seared) consists of nigiri sushi with a party seared, partly raw fish toppings. For those that know me well, understand that I love Japanese food. I can probably eat sushi all day errday! Miku is a great place for girls night or date night. The space includes an open kitchen main dining area and a quieter more intimate back room with water view.

Miku Casesar: well spiced, rimmed and savored.

Sashimi Platters from $20 / person. Please ask your server for details as selection varies daily. Today special was Botan Ebi spot prawn, Hotate scallops, Hamachi Yellow Tail, Wild Sockeye Salmon, Tuna, Maguro Red Tuna, and a medley of diced tuna with garlic sauce. The heads of the botan spot prawn can be deep fried after you are done. The value and the quality of this platter was pretty decent. Everything was very fresh and good sized.

Aburi Beef Carpaccio 18: sterling silver AAA short rib, tamari horseradish crème fraîche, ponzu, celery, organic 64° egg, organic baby greens. The sous vide egg took a few pokes to get theyolk running. The sauce was too salty and it didn’t stand a chance against Phnom Penh’s butter beef. Nonetheless, the beef was tender and soft. Sometimes less is more.

Aburi Saba Oshi Sushi 15: pressed house cured mackerel, miso sauce. This roll was very tasty but a tad salt with the miso sauce. And I wish the saba was slightly thicker to get that texture and bite. I would still prefer the Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi!

Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi 16: pressed BC wild sockeye salmon, jalapeno and miku sauce. This is one of my favorite aburi rolls. I love the spiciness and the slight crunch of the jalapeno against the freshness of the fish. I clearly remember that one piece of this from theMinami Dine Out Menu, simply was not enough.

MIKU Roll 18: salmon, crab, cucumber, sea urchin, rolled in flying fish roe, miku sauce. The miku sauce used here is the same sauce used in the Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi. The roll is gently torched and the roe are half cooked. Like popping bubble wrap and tobiko pop rocks in your mouth.
