According to a brand new study, Vancouver is the most sushi-crazed city in the world outside of Japan.

Tell us something we don’t already know!

The Chef’s Pencil report published today outlines that Vancouver, BC, topped the list with a perfect score (100 out of 100) based on Google Trends data relating to sushi-related searches.

This study found that Novosibirsk, Russia, and Odessa, Ukraine, took the second and third spots on the list of the cities with the highest concentration of sushi-lovers.

Montreal was the only other Canadian city to make this list, coming in at 11th with a popularity score of 62, making it the second most sushi-crazed destination in North America.

Chef’s Pencil also reported that sushi’s popularity in Canada “reached an all-time high in 2021.”

The platform claims that, based on its findings, our favourite, flavourful Japanese export has nearly doubled in popularity over the past decade.
