Where to Order Takeout Sushi in Every Province Across Canada

Sushi is believed to date back to the 2nd century BC in China with a process called narezushi. Far predating refrigerators, it was introduced as a means of preserving fish in fermented rice – the rice later to be thrown away and only the fish eaten.

It is the Japanese, however, who are credited with preparing sushi as a complete dish. In the 18th century, a chef named Hanaya Yohei first laid a piece of raw fish on a bed of vinegared rice, introducing nigiri.

Fast forward to today, and sushi has become so popular worldwide that here in North America we don’t even need to go to a restaurant to enjoy this delicious dish – we can have it delivered right to our door!

Here is a list of sushi restaurants offering takeout in each Canadian province:

Sushi Island (St. John's, NL)
