Just yesterday, the Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards honoured our sake specialist Miki Ellis by placing her on the Premier Crew, which celebrates the best in service. Excerpt from the May 2013 issue of Vancouver Magazine:
At 19, Miki Ellis turned to the study of sake and fell in love. As sake specialist at both Minami and Miku(and the world’s youngest certified sake pro), she loves the liquor’s depth and versatility, but not in all forms: “Hot sake shots are poison!”
Check out the rest of the Crew here! Plus, there is a lovely sketch of Miki: http://www.vanmag.com/Restaurants/Premier_Crew_2013
In addition, Minami was presented with Silver for Best Upscale Japanese. What an amazing team we have!
