To work with Aburi Restaurants is like joining a family. With the company philosophy Ningenmi, respect and trust is a staple in our work place, making it the ideal place to work.
Seigo Nakamura, owner of the Tora Corporation in Japan, is the visionary behind Aburi Restaurants Canada. His unique concepts and business strategies have led to the creation of Aburi style cuisine and the Ningenmi philosophy. A trendsetter in all aspects, Seigo is never happy with settling for the norm.
His new twist on Aburi cuisine was created over a decade ago, by fusing the idea of traditional Japanese flame-searing with the decadent and creamy sauces of French cuisine. Seigo’s vision for a new restaurant concept did not include using soy or wasabi in an abundance. With a new cuisine in mind, he set out to introduce Ningenmi and the idea of Omotenashi (traditional Japanese service) in the western world.
Ningenmi is a philosophy that has he always tried to uphold in his everyday life, and felt it was something that could be achieved in business practice. The idea was to share the success of the companies that he owned, with the people that ran them.
With three Vancouver restaurants under his wing (Miku, Minami, and Gyoza Bar), Seigo has set his sights on the East Coast as his next big expansion. His multi-brand strategy will bring to light several restaurants featuring Aburi cuisine on the East Coast. Thinking locally but acting globally, he aims to create a truly international brand. With Seigo’s vision, passion, and keen eye for business, Aburi Restaurants Canada can expect great things on the horizon.
