These Are The Best Sushi Spots In Vancouver By Neighbourhood

Because sushi is a staple Vancouver meal.

Yes, there are Canadian food inventions like poutine and maple syrup (that's about all the ones I know), but when it comes to uniting Vancouverites over food, we think it's safe to say that sushi is the answer. 

Sushi is a staple Vancouver meal and tbh we're so thankful for that. Pretty sure all Vancouverites related when Corinne said on The Bachelor, I need sushi. It's delicious and can be done so many different ways, and for some reason it doesn't really get old.

Sushi can be found pretty much any place where restaurants are found in Vancouver. If you walk along a restaurant street, like West 4th or Robson, every like few places you pass by is a sushi spot. And with so many spots in the market, it can be hard to figure out which is the best ones. 

From aburi seared sushi to box sushi to your typical Avocado roll, these spots are the places to go. We've got you covered at different price points, styles and ambiances. And if you want to conquer the best sushi in Vancouver, check out our Vancouver sushi bucket list that is what sushi dreams are made of. Happy eating Vancouverites!
