Celebrate Sakura Season at Minami

In Japan, the season of cherry blossoms (sakura) is celebrated by gathering friends and family together and having a meal or drink underneath the blossoming trees.

In celebration of this joyful season, our beverage and pastry teams have come together to create a special Sakura Feature Menu, featuring spring themed wine, sake, cocktail, and desserts.

View the full menu here.

This exclusive menu is available for limited time only, from April 5th  – 22nd. Don’t forget to book a reservation for best availability.

Sakura Petit Fours

Kokuryu Junmai Ginjo

Fukui-based Kokuryu brewery has just arrived into Canada, with limited quantities! Using 55% local Gohyakumangoku (the second most popular sake rice in Japan), this junmai ginjo sake is rich in flavour while retaining a lightness in the mouth. A very pleasant surprise, considering that Fukui is famous for its soft water! Along with its complex notes of stone fruit and apple,  this beautiful sake is fresh and elegant, yet dry on the finish.
