11 of the best places to get fresh sushi around Montreal

Mar 5 2021, 5:36 pm

Sushi is one of those foods that you just can’t get tired of, and fortunately, in Montreal, great sushi places abound.

It’s one of the most versatile foods: it can be shared, snacked on, engulfed in one sitting… the possibilities are truly endless.

The variety of flavour combinations just makes it a go-to option. Whether you’re a fan of salmon or more of a tuna person (or a lover of freshwater eel, like Ross from Friends), there’s a sashimi and maki roll for you.

Here are some sushi restaurants to check out next time you’re on the hunt for a wholesome Japanese meal.

You wouldn’t think that a combination of the words “vegan” and “sushi” would be very appetizing, but Sushi Momo is here to prove you wrong: their creative menu is entirely free of animal products.

Though on the pricier side, Jun I is absolutely worth the visit. The blend of textures, flavours, and seasoning carefully created by the restaurant’s chef are simply out of this world.

Restaurant Posher

Posher is an all-around great option if you’re looking for generous portions and high-quality ingredients for a good price. If you’re feeling a little hungrier, try one of their poké bowls along with your sushi order.

Reasonable prices and excellent, fresh sushi is what you can expect from Eko Sushi. Their veggie-mango futomaki is an absolute must-try.

Saint Sushi

Saint Sushi’s menu is filled with unconventional sushi options and creative names: tempura lovers will adore the “Michael Jackson,” a fried maki with tuna, salmon, shrimp, and enoki mushrooms.

Yuukai Sushi

This Japanese fusion restaurant is highly praised among sushi connoisseurs in Montreal. The chef’s creations and picks are always delightful; you have to order their sushi pizza if you’ve never tried one.
