Whoa! Flame-Grilled Sushi?
Yes, flame grilled sushi is a thing, and you can try it at aburi sushi pioneers in the city, Minami. They use a charcoal stick and a flame to give their nigiri topped with a creamy special sauce its characteristic char-finish. The house special is their Salmon Oshi and you absolutely have to try it when you come, it’s a pressed sushi roll with a slice of BC wild salmon in the middle and that yummy sauce and a jalepeno on top. Splash out on the ‘Aburi Shokai’ menu for a six course sampler of the Minami menu.
