Montreal Sushi Restaurants
Sushi has evolved here in Montreal. Sushi has come into its own style and culture here, and in some places it's commonplace to sushi on the menu. Crazy combinations of ingredients can be found inside sushi rolls, with bizarre names like the Caterpillar roll, Spider roll and Romeo and Julietta. But beyond the crazy names and ingredients, the style of sushi has changed. Montreal sushi restaurants have taken on a decidedly western technique when it comes to sushi creation, adding area-specific ingredients and changing the shape, size and presentation format laid out by the Japanese inventors. In Montreal and North America the sushi is LARGER in general. The individual pieces are usually too big to eat in one bite, and the sushi rice is a little sweeter. The traditional Japanese reverence for good quality food in small portions has dissipated in North America, with sushi bars deferring to the new appetite and attraction to colourful food in big portions. Sushi is a trend that will not go away anytime soon. Even though this popular food has its roots in the Southeast Asia of hundreds of years ago, sushi is still evolving in many parts of the world today. Whether you are looking for a healthy alternative, enjoy Asian cuisine or just like to experience different styles of food, Sushi has proven to be the answer for many Montrealers. With its low fat, healthy character and delicious taste sushi really is the food of the future – even though it’s been around for more than a thousand years! Sushi has come a long way from the three-year fermented rice with meat that it was originally, and it will likely keep metamorphosing for years to come. Sometimes you just can’t beat the simple things! So go out and explore our great Montreal sushi restaurants.
