Minami Vancouver, British-columbia, Canada

A style of sushi unique in both flavours and presentation, delivered in a beautiful and animated environment.

Minami is the type of sushi restaurant we don’t get enough of where I come from. It has the slick styling of a nightclub combined with the energy of a Greek family restaurant, while presenting some incredibly original and savoury flavour combinations. Being with a group of unabashed foodies when I attended, we all rolled our eyes a little when the server instructed us to avoid overwhelming the carefully constructed flavours with wasabi and soy. However, she was in fact spot on in her recommendation: the layering of sophisticated flavours in such simple and spare platings was a marvel of ingenuity. The restaurant practices a culinary style known as Aburi, which uses judicious searing of the sushi to impart a lovely smokey quality and open up the flavours in the sauces. Minami is well worth a visit, and I will certainly return on my next trip to Vancouver.

Best starter was a toss-up between the tuna tartare and the calamari. (NB: Could be the best calamari I have ever had). The tofu salad was also quite impressive. For mains we mostly stuck to the sushi platters, but the pork cheek is also worthy of attention.
