Waterfront—(November 23, 2017) Vancouver's Miku Restaurant, the flagship dining establishment of Aburi Restaurants, officially launched their new, innovative Aburi Prime sushi dining experience earlier this month to much anticipation.

The permanent menu of sushi-forward premium nigiri omakase (chef's selection) features a carefully selected lineup of fresh seafood with each piece prepared and paired with certain elevated garnishes for maximum flavour in an impeccably presented plating.

Executive Chef Kazuhiro Hayashi and team debuted the new aburi—literally translated to "flame-seared" in Japanese—experience as both a standalone dish or as part of a special three-course set tasting menu.
