FOOD + DESIGN | VANCOUVER :: SUSHI MART ON ROBSON STREET
I was walking down Robson Street last week when I spotted Sushi Mart for the first time.
That cobalt blue neon fish caught my eye. I peered in the window. What I saw wowed me: the interior design was out of Japan. Sushi Mart’s entire presentation— from choice of typeface and overall graphic design to its web presence — is a pleasure to behold. It has that Japanese attention to detail that I crave. And the food?
Vancouver: A city famous for its Japanese cuisine, yet swarming in mediocre and cheap all-you-can-pig-out-on food troughs, usually made by non-Japanese chefs. In this city of mock-sushi, Sushi Mart stands out as the real deal.
I haven’t had sushi this good since I lived in Tokyo.
Try the melt-in-your-mouth yam roll. It’s like eating butter, only better.
