Miku Restaurant, a History of Excellence

City Life joined Miku Restaurant for a second anniversary dinner at its downtown Toronto location. This exclusive event boasted a five-course tasting menu and a whole lot of flavour. The restaurant employs the Aburi philosophy of Ningenmi, which roughly translates to finding joy in helping others — something Miku clearly prides itself on through the meticulousness in which it presents its cuisine and personalized service. As Miku Toronto reaches its two-year milestone, the commitment of the Aburi team, and the passion to continuously improve, positions this establishment as a mainstay within the Toronto restaurant scene.

For the occasion, we were treated to five delicious courses served on pottery that was masterfully handcrafted by women from a small town in Japan who have dedicated themselves to this ancient technique. Each dish was paired with a variety of sake, which were perfectly suited to complement the unique flavours encapsulated within the dishes. Miku Toronto offers a phenomenal dining experience that any sushi aficionado would love and a sake sommelier to help you choose the perfect pairing.

Each dish was intricately prepared with incredible attention to detail. The meal began with Ebi Shinjo, which consists of silken yuba, Aburi Ginjo sake dashi foam, uni ankake and toasted ginkgo nuts with truffle salt, a delicious combination of unexpected flavours. Each dish featured an array of textures and colours that sent our tastebuds into overdrive and were as pleasing to the eye as they were to the palate. The dining experience was spectacular, ending off with a Black Sesame Forest Cake and pistachio ice cream that were both light and completely satisfying.

This tasting menu encompassed every texture and flavour you can imagine and some you couldn’t even think up in your happiest dreams. Visit Miku Toronto for an out-of-this-world experience with something for everyone.
