Shiro Miso Toro Aburi – Fresh toro marinated in white miso and junmai ginjo sake, layered with rice, flame seared, and topped with chili flakes and key lime slivers at Bistro Sakana. (One of my favourite pressed sushi in Vancouver along with the Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi and Aburi Saba Oshi Sushi at Minami.)
