The long-established favorite for Vancouver’s best sushi is Tojo’s, where devotees sit at the sushi bar, order omakase (chef’s choice), and put themselves in chef Hidekazu Tojo’s uber-capable hands. The fish is among the freshest around, and Tojo’s creations are always interesting. Expect to pay top dollar for this top-quality product; the sake selection is first-rate, too.
You don’t have to lay out big bucks, though, for great sushi in Vancouver. The city has lots of local, neighborhood eateries purveying fine Japanese fare. My picks are Tsuki Sushi Bar, a relative newcomer on the edge of Gastown; Shiro, an unassuming spot in a Cambie Street strip mall; and Ajisai Sushi Bar, another tiny dining room, this one set back from W. 42nd Avenue in residential Kerrisdale.
