NEW: Vancouver Icon Joins the Best of Downtown Tour

 |  By

Downtown Vancouver’s most-recommended Japanese restaurant, Miku, joins Vancouver Foodie Tours’ Best of Downtown Tour as the final destination on the 3-hour food tasting adventure

This limited-edition Foodie Tour experience is available now, exclusively on Saturday departures

A Seafood and Multiculturalism Tour

Miku is one of Vancouver’s most iconic restaurants; they invented the famous Aburi Oshi Sushi (pressed, flamed-seared sushi) that is now mimicked across North America.

If there’s one restaurant to experience while visiting Vancouver, travel guides, concierges, celebrities, and foodie hit lists put Miku first. Miku is the place to experience how Japanese cuisine flourishes in Vancouver; it is the irresistible combination of sustainable West Coast ingredients, Canadian service, and Vancouver’s breathtaking ocean views.


Miku joins the Best of Downtown Tour’s collection of best-in-class establishments, including Boulevard Kitchen + Oyster Bar (Winners of 2018 Vancouver Magazine’s Best Seafood, Chef of the Year, Best Upscale Restaurant), Kirin Restaurant (Six-time Winners of Best Dim Sum Restaurant, Vancouver Lifetime Achievement Award), and more.

Each Best of Downtown Tour features four downtown destinations which showcase Vancouver’s seafood and multicultural flavours.

“You can learn so much about a city through its food. The Best of Downtown Tour is an Ocean Wise partner and we are excited to share the story of Vancouver’s food sustainability efforts with our guests.”

– Michelle Ng, President & Founder of Vancouver Foodie Tours

Miku’s most-popular dessert, the Green Tea Opera
paired with a premium Japanese Plum Wine, Kunizakari Tea Umeshu
