Japanese food is enjoyed the world over, and has in recent past become one of the hottest culinary trends in North America. From the delicate flavors of sushi to masterfully conceived dishes such as tempura and sashimi, Japanese cuisine is one of the brightest, cleanest and most interesting forms of cuisine in the world. While many people think of cities like New York and Los Angeles when talking about the best Japanese in North America, Vancouver’s Tojo’s restaurant is often brought up as being one of Canada’s finest Japanese restaurants, offering an experience like no other in a city rich in culinary history.

Tojo’s is a breath of fresh air. Sleek, modern and comfortable, there is scarcely a better room in Vancouver to take in a good meal. Chef Hidekazu Tojo prepares classic Japanese cuisine with a modern twist, delighting his audience with some of the most interesting food the city has to offer. While his menu contains all of the usual suspects (sushi, tempura), Tojo’s is famous for their intricately prepared plates of Japanese-fusion style cuisine.

For those looking for the ultimate experience, there’s no better way to enjoy Tojo’s than to order the omakase. The omakase is a chef’s tasting in which the chef designs and cooks a special menu for whoever orders it, and is considered to be the ultimate meal at any Japanese restaurant. Vegetarians, meat and seafood loves all delight in Chef Tojo’s omakase menus.

Put simply, Tojo’s serves the best Japanese food in Vancouver.
