Miku Vancouver | Aburi Kaiseki Dinner

Miku Vancouver | Aburi Kaiseki Dinner

Miku at Coal Harbour waterfront is one of my favourite Japanese restaurant in Vancouver. It is located next to Canada Place and has wonderful views – you can watch the sunset over the North Shores. To celebrate our third wedding anniversary, Dave and I wanted to indulge in their omakase menu – Aburi Kaiseki Dinner.

 

Kaiseki menu is only available during dinner service. There are three choices of  Shokai (zensai, entree, signature sushi and dessert) $68 per person, Kaisen (six course chef’s tasting menu) $88 per person and Aburi (unique multi-course experience with premium and seasonal ingredients) $135 per person. Traditional Kaiseki Ryori incorporates region’s food culture and is presented in unique Arita plateware from Kyushu, Japan.

 

To start the evening we savoured a glass of Riesling while watching the thunderstorm – after all it is September in Vancouver.

Amuse Bouche: croquette

Aburi Sashimi: trio selection of flame seared salmon, scallop and tuna with signature sauces.

 

Appetizer: Presented in a beautiful bento box from Arita plateware that is so Instagram worthy. Seven seasonal bite size appetizers that consists of fresh oysters (or substitution for clams), Salt Spring mussels with mignonette and tiger prawn cocktail. The bottom layer includes octopus ceviche, pan seared Hakkaido scallop, beef carpaccio, and ahi tuna.

 

Lobster Tail: The third course consists of half lobster table grilled with tomato chili sauce served with seasonal vegetables.

 

Wagyu Beef: tender and cooked perfectly medium rare with a dash of pink Himalayan salt. Served with seasonal greens.

 

Miku’s Signature Sushi: The fifth course includes an assortment of Aburi nigiri, rolls (Miku roll and Red Wave Roll) and oshi sushi (salmon, ebi). Before ending the evening with dessert, you have the option to add more food a la carte. For us, it was the perfect amount. Besides we wanted to get ice cream afterwards…

 

Black Forest Tiramisu with Vanilla Bean ice cream. This dessert was airy, light and not too sweet. Just the way I like it.

 

If you are looking for an omakase dinner service with an amazing view. I highly recommend the Aburi Kaiseki dinner from Miku.

Nubo Japanese Tapas is located on a quint little corner on 739 Pandora Ave. in downtown Victoria, British Columbia. We were over on Vancouver Island for a weekend getaway. Every time we are on vacation we always crave Asian food at least once – we always needed some sort of comfort food.

Off the tapas menu we ordered Tamago Spam Musubi 9: spam, tamago, pressed sushi. This was not my favorite and thought it was rather dry and bland. The spam was too thin and the rice too dry.
