A magnificent meal at Miku!

Last evening, a group of us dined at an amazing restaurant to cap off the year. Miku, is an elegant Japanese restaurant near Toronto’s waterfront. I was a bit hesitant initially, as I just wanted to wind down after a stressful couple of weeks. However, after reading the reviews, and seeing what was available for dessert – my reason for this post – I decided to go for it. Hey, it’s the end of the year!

To start off, I had the Salmon Oshi Sushi which consisted of pressed wild sockeye salmon with jalapeño and Miku made sauces. It was divine! The fish was so delicate it melt as soon as it hit my mouth. I wanted more. Next time!

For my entrée, I enjoyed the Kyoto Saikyo Miso Baked Sablefish. It had so many elements and textures which really elevated the plate to a whole new level. The plate consisted of a charred eggplant purée, cauliflower fritter, daikon covered in squid ink, edamame, pattypan squash, welsh onion, and heirloom tomato relish. Each bite was different every time.

Now for dessert. This was the reason why I wanted to go: to enjoy the Green Tea Opera. Wow! What a song! It was a trio of Matcha infused delights that screamed amazing notes in my mouth. The Matcha was a perfect balance of sweetness and earthiness. Miku’s signature dessert was a combination of green tea génoise, Matcha buttercream, dark chocolate ganache, azuki bean cream, hazelnut wafer, and Matcha ice-cream. Stunning and delicious. Definitely make room for this dessert!

With the fantastic service, amazing eats, and wonderful dinner companions, it was an evening I really needed. I had a pretty good year. I’ve had a very busy schedule with my new career, but I feel like I’m on the right track for once. I’ve got a long way to go, but I’m enjoying the journey. I love what I do and I’ve got some big ideas for 2017. I’m looking forward to how the New Year unfolds for me. I wish everyone else a prosperous New Year. Cheers!
