In case you needed another reason to indulge in a platter of umami-accomplished sushi (and we’re sure you don’t), we’ve got you covered. International Sushi Day is celebrated annually on June 18. The day commemorates the delicious Japanese dish,  made with cooked rice wrapped with nori (seaweed) and filled with an infinite assortment of ingredients from seafood, meat and vegetables to mango, avocado and cream cheese, all paired with soy sauce and the ever-pungent and peppery Wasabi. The bite-sized snack is actually quite healthy and has found innumerable fans across the world.

Right here in Canada, we have some of the best sushi and chef’s taking their own spin on the Asian classic. Celebrate the day with us by grabbing your favourite sushi from any of these winning spots!

Not only does Oroshi use premium sustainably sourced fish, they go a step further to age their seafood for 3-7 days, the process of dry-age allows for the texture of fish become firmer and the flavours more rich. This isn’t the traditional way of making sushi, but it is the Orishi way and they are well known for their unique methods!
