The Essential Sushi in Vancouver

List View
Map View
Vancouver has both an abundance of fresh seafood and a sizable Asian population. Put those two things together and you’ll see why Vancouver could easily be named Sushi City, with excellent and affordable sushi on every corner. Go high-end with a meal at the famous Tojo’s (birthplace of the California roll), try charcoal flame-torched aburi sushi at Minami, or grab some takeaway from Yummy To Go and enjoy it on the beach at English Bay.
