Restaurant Spotlight: Miku Toronto - West Wind Hardwood

Miku Toronto brings the famous Vancouver-based Aburi flavour to the East Coast. Located on 10 Bay Street near Queens Quay, the 7000 square foot restaurant boasts two private dining rooms, a raw bar and large outdoor dining patio. Including the guest favourite Aburi Oshi Sushi as well as innovative menu items influenced by local ingredients and flavours, the restaurant also boasts an extensive wine, sake, and cocktail list for excellent pairings.

Miku is famous for its Aburi sushi. An innovative twist on traditional sushi, Aburi sushi is lightly flame seared using binchotan (Japanese bamboo charcoal). Miku has taken Aburi to the next level by adding their own signature European-influenced sauces to each type of fish before searing. As the flame caramelizes the sauce, it creates a smoky aroma and adds a decadent layer of flavour to each sushi piece.

Miku’s signature lunch item is the Miku Zen, which features a savoury Aburi sushi selection as well as four seasonal appetizers served on our lovely little food tray.

Miku Toronto was named one of the Top 100 Restaurants in Canada by OpenTable, and was featured on Toronto Life for Best New Restaurants 2016. Head sushi chef Kazuki Uchigoshi also brought home first prize during last year’s Taste of Toronto Chef Battle. Most recently, Miku’s Vancouver flagship was featured as one of the Top 8 Sushi Restaurants in the World, noting their famous Aburi sushi as well as great service.
