Polly, Whitney and I met up again in downtown for dinner.
Whitney suggested Miku Restaurant which is near her work place.
When Whitney called up the day before to make reservation, she was told that reservation was full but we can try to walk in to try our luck and so we did.
We managed to get a table at the patio, great for summer.
We started with an appetizer of Soba Pepperoncino which has scallop, shrimp, squid, chili-garlic soy, sweet pepper, shiitake mushroom, baby bok choy, jalapeno and crunchy tempura bits on a bed of soba noodle. Whitney commented that it tasted like Malaysian style mee goreng :-).
We had the above to share for our main.
The above is Salmon Oshi Sushi which is pressed BC wild sockeye salmon topped with jalapeno and Miku sauce. This is prepared with Miku’s famous flamed-seared technique with their signature sauces.
This is Miku Roll without uni as they ran out of uni. So, it is $2 less. We love the tobiko bursting in our mouth.
The above is from the Aburi Sushi Sampler. I had the above piece which I think is the Ebi Oshi Sushi which is pressed prawn, lime zest with ume sauce. It has a very pronounced citrusy flavour from the lime zest. I like it.
The above are other types of sushi from the Aburi Sushi Sampler.
Credit card is accepted here. It was a pricey meal for quality sushi.
