Best Sushi in Town?
Local celebs experience flavours of the sea right in the prairies
Jennifer Cockrall-King, food writer
“I love Mikado because it’s been a pioneer here. I also think it’s the best sushi in town. I absolutely love the robata (grill) items there – the hamachi collar (I order it with sea salt only, not with barbecue sauce) and the grilled squid are my two faves. I like the attention to detail there with the sushi and other menu items.”
Sandra Gajic, CEO, Edmonton Opera
“I grew up by the sea, so the smell and taste of the ocean remains something I crave. My first week in Edmonton, I found Kyoto. I always order the chirashi topped with the chef’s daily selection of red roe. I accompany it with seaweed salad and my craving is temporarily sated.”
“Sushi Ya in City Centre Mall is my go-to sushi place for lunch between rehearsals. It is fast and good quality. I usually call ahead to order miso soup, a spicy tuna hand roll and a dynamite roll, and then take it back to the Winspear.”
