5 Restaurants Across Canada Offering Must Order Sushi

Once predominantly a historical street food, Sushi evolved into popular brick-and-mortar-served staples after a hurricane in Japan resulted in affordability in real estate for aspiring sushi restaurateurs. Today, it’s available far and wide and Canadians can’t get enough of it.
