With more than 600 restaurants in Metro Vancouver serving maki rolls, nigiri, and sashimi, one would think that sushi is all there is to Japanese cuisine, but clearly that is not the case. We asked food blogger Christina Tsang to explore what else is on the menu.
Japanese cuisine is diverse and so much more than raw fish; it encompasses comforting robust stews, delicate steamed egg custards and crispy fried chicken. Reflecting the various regions of the country, its climate, and culture, Japanese food is sometimes simple but always made with care, attention to detail, and often visually stunning. If you find yourself in a sushi rut or feeling like exploring Japanese cuisine more thoroughly, here now, in no particular order is our Japanese beyond Sushi guide.
