Miku Restaurant: Aburi Sushi Gourmet Cuisine

Diana Chan October 4, 2012 Downtown, Four Beakers, Izakaya, Japanese, Seafood

Miku has been around since 2008 serving delicious Japanese food. They are best known for their aburi style sushi. It’s sear-flamed sushi. You won’t need any soy sauce or wasabi with any of their items.I’ve heard much about it, but it took me a long time to finally dine here. The thing is that it is a bit expensive and dinner can burn a hole in your pocket.

The interior is very open and has lots of natural light. It is highly recommended to have reservations as they are really busy.

Green Tea was good! The servers also did a great job diligently filling up the cup too. It was never empty.

Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi ($14) has local salmon pressed and dressed with soy & Miku sauce, topped with jalapéno. This is what you must get! It’s so good!

Aburi Sashmi ($25) is a trio of aburi sashimi paired with house made sauces

Rainbow Salad ($18) has 6 kinds of sashimi, avocado, organic greens, and tosazu jelly. It was really good! The acidity from the jelly really complimented the delicate taste of the sashimi.

Soba Pepperoncino ($15) has squid, sweet pepper, shiitake, jalapeno, garlic, and tempura bits.

Green Tea Opera ($10) has green tea sponge infused with espresso and frangelico liquer, green tea butter cream, dark chocolate ganache, azuki bean cream, green tea sauce, and green tea ice cream.

Cherry Panna Cotta ($10) has vanilla bean panna cotta, cherry and amaretto infused sauce, cherry compote, sesame crumble, almond tuile cookie, cherry vanilla ice cream and sorbet. The presentation was really cool! I was definitely impressed.

Overall, I loved the entire meal! The service was amazing with great attention shown by the servers. This place is expensive for certain dishes, but you will fall in love with their aburi sushi for sure! Its a great place to take your girlfriends or your significant other.
