Montreal Opens A New "All You Can Eat" Sushi Restaurant On The Corner Of Saint-Denis Street

Sushi lovers, it's time to celebrate. While it's true that Montreal has many, many fantastic places to go beast on as much sushi as you want - and even an awesome place to go if you're a vegan sushi lover - variety is the spice of life. It's always fun to check out new places - especially when they serve your all time favourite food in an all-you-can-eat capacity. And now, Montreal has a fresh, new place to do just that.

Takumi Fusion Asiatique Sushi (405 Rue Sherbrooke E) is set to open up on April 12th, 2016 and, as you might have guessed, is one of Montreal's newest all-you-can-eat sushi spots. Located right in the Plateau, Takumi's menu features both sushi and Asian fusion dishes. A sample of their mouthwatering selections? Tropical sushi pizza, featuring mango and crab; grilled tilapia; and lamb yakitori.

If Takumi sounds like your newest fave sushi place (and you know it does), then don't forget to follow keep up with them on their Facebook page.
