Green Leaf Sushi: Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi

Green Leaf Sushi has been on my must visit list for quite some time after seeing countless pics of their aburi oshi sushi. We finally found ourselves in the area after first hitting the UBC Botanical Garden Tree Walk and came for a late lunch.

Sushi Taku: Solid Take-Out Options

Iwasa Sushi (Tokyo 2016): Omakase and Chirashizushi at Tsukiji Fish Market

For any sashimi connoisseur, a trip to Tokyo wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Tsukiji Fish Market, the largest wholesale seafood market in the world.

Isomaru Suisan Asakusa (Tokyo 2016): Big Chain Sushi at the Best

During our trip to Japan, we found ourselves wandering around the Asakusa district of Taito (Taito is a special ward of Tokyo – actually the smallest in terms of area).
