This year’s Dine Out has been my recent favourite. Overall, I think the restaurants have raised the bar and put out a much more interesting and tastier menu, and the service quality has also seen improvement. We have 2 more reviews coming up this week so be sure to follow them!

Last week, I went to Minami Restaurant’s grand opening party. Minami is the sister restaurant of Miku, which is among the best Japanese restaurants in Vancouver.

The evening began with the Kagami Biraki ceremony, which is the opening of a cask of sake using a mallet, conducted by owner Seigo and two of his guests. Minami offers a large variety of sake on the menu; they even have someone on staff who specializes in sake.
