There was a time not too long ago when I did not particularly care for sushi. We’d go to a sushi restaurant or pick it up for home and I’d generally order chicken or salmon teriyaki. However, while frequenting the popular Mikado Restaurant (www.mikadomontreal.com), I gradually developed a taste for this amazing Japanese favorite.
Mikado first opened its doors in 1987 on St. Denis Street and followed that up with another locale on Laurier Street near Hutchison. The latter relocated to a new and larger space nine years ago. Chef-owner Kimio Nguyen introduced an NDG locale on Monkland Avenue in 16 years ago.
