The Goods from Miku Restaurant

Vancouver, BC | Miku, Vancouver’s destination for contemporary Japanese cuisine, has recently launched its new seasonal Miku Summer Kaiseki menu. Available now, the seven-course tasting menu celebrates both the fresh flavours of the season and exquisite ingredients from Japan, including BC Halibut and Iwate A5 Wagyu. The menu always includes a chef’s selection of Miku’s signature Aburi sushi.

“Our Summer Miku Kaiseki menu is a celebration of the season’s bounty and the artistry of Japanese cuisine,” explains head chef Martin Simicek, who works alongside Aburi Restaurants Canada executive chef Kazuhiro Hayashi. “Each course is designed to highlight the delicate flavours of each ingredient, from fresh seafood to our exclusive Iwate A5 Wagyu. Each dish is meant to be enjoyed one after another – giving our guests a wonderful dining experience from start to finish.”

Miku’s Summer Kaiseki ($180++ per person), created by Simicek and pastry chef Isabelle Valencia, is available during dinner service. Reservations can be made online or via phone at 604-568-3900.
