Both platters come with various aburi oshi sushi rolls and other sushi rolls, but the Sumire Platter has a larger selection of aburi oshi, which is why there are less pieces and it’s more expensive.

There’s also a Vegetarian Platter ($65) with 52 pieces of various vegetarian sushi rolls.

Canoe Restaurant, Toronto

Canoe Restaurant

Adam and I went to Canoe for the first time on Valentine’s Day several years ago (when we were students) with a gift card and no idea about what “tasting menus” were, and we were definitely in for a shock when we got the bill lol.

Their Valentine’s Day tasting menu is $175 per person and features 7 courses, including pescatarian and meat options.

We honestly weren’t too impressed with our meals, but the experience of sitting 54 storeys high with the gorgeous skyline view was what made it worth it.
