Recently opened at Bay and Queen's Quay, Miku Toronto is Aburi Restaurants first east coast outpost (they own and operate the well-loved Miku, Minami and Gyoza Bar in Vancouver). The restaurant features the same signature Aburi (flame seared) style sushi that put them on the map along with the experimentation with new and exciting flavours and textures. Their cocktails are no exception, here's of our favourites - the spicy Oni No Chi (which literally translates to Demon's Blood but we were probably better off not knowing that if we're being honest). And as you can see from our Instagram pic, it actually is that magically colourful in person.
