Vancouver Has Been Ranked The Top City In The World For Sushi Outside Of Japan

Vancouver has just been ranked the most sushi-loving city in the world outside of Japan.

It's no surprise, really, because the city is full of incredible sushi. From takeout to dine-in, it has a super wide variety of restaurants to enjoy that serve up some epic meals.

Because it's on the West Coast, the accessibility the city has to fresh seafood makes the sushi that much more mouthwatering.

I mean, there's really nothing better than some fresh sashimi!

According to a recent study by Chef's Pencil, sushi's popularity "reached an all-time high in 2021."

It is "almost twice as popular than five years ago and three times more popular than 2011," the study said.

Montreal was also featured on the list in 11th place, so it appears more and more people are appreciating Japanese cuisine.

Currently, the popularity of Japanese food outranks Italian, Indian and Chinese cuisines on Instagram — a platform that holds "over a billion food-related posts," Chef's Pencil added.

It also mentioned that sushi is one of the most shared foods on Instagram, coming in fifth place behind ice cream and pizza — which is understandable.

Over 600 delicious sushi spots exist in Metro Vancouver alone, so if you have a craving, it's the right city to be in.

This includes some super popular spots like Tojo's and Miku, which are well known throughout the city.

All of the Vancouver foodies seem to enjoy this cuisine, and if you live in Vancouver, you're sure to have tried it at least once. If not, now might be the time to add sushi to your bucket list.
