Giveaway: $50 Gift Card to Edo Japan – Happy International Sushi Day!

Today (June 18) is International Sushi Day! < insert tons of sushi emojis here >

I’m a big, big, big fan of sushi – well, Japanese food in general. I always say if I had to pick just three food genres that I had to eat for the rest of my life, Japanese would be in that top three.

There’s a lot of great Japanese restaurants in Edmonton (Japonais Bistro, Izakaya Tomo, Mikado, to name a few), but as far as fast food Japanese goes, Edo Japan is pretty great.

I used to eat their teriyaki chicken and beef (sometimes chicken and shrimp… sometimes all three) on rice religiously. It was the post secondary meal of choice a few years back.

What I didn’t realize was how much they’ve expanded their menu in recent years, including a pretty solid sushi roll/platter line-up!

Edo now serves up not only your standard California rolls, but also cucumber, avocado, sukiyaki, traditional maki and nigiri – and various platters featuring dynamite rolls, spicy tuna, kappa, prawns, smoked salmon, and more!

They also have my personal favourite – sashimi! #gimmealltherawfish

Check out all of Edo Japan’s fresh sushi options here!

I’m getting pretty hungry thinking about it… But honestly I think Edo is a fantastic fast sushi option, and I think their expansion/growth story is wonderful. They’ve been around for more than 30 years and started in Calgary. Now they’re one of Canada’s fastest growing restaurants, with over 100 Edo Japan locations (food court and storefront) across the country. They really put a big emphasis on fresh food and simple ingredients. I’m all for Alberta-success stories! Good for Edo.

So now that you’re hungry, on to the fun (free) stuff! ;)

In honour of International Sushi Day, Edo has generously offered to give one of my readers a $50 gift card!

I’ve been doing a lot of giveaways lately (I’m so thankful for all the opportunities!) so I want to give Rafflefopter another shot. (I tried using it once and it didn’t really work out). Hopefully this helps me manage giveaways better as I hope to continue doing more of them!

    Definitely a fan of sashimi and the tamago (egg) and inari sushi.

  • Steph

    !!! This is awesome. We eat sushi at LEAST once a week. My all-time favourite is Atlantic salmon sashimi but I also enjoy spicy tuna maki and Mexican maki (with mango and without tempura).
    Actually, the Mango Tango roll at Japonais is pretty great too. Dangit… now I’m hungry.

  • Sunday at the @Cat_Cafe_On_Whyte! 😻💚 My first time back since they opened in April. So happy to see that since then—80 cats have been adopted, they’ve expanded their drinks & pastry menu (and made it unlimited drinks for the hour), added merchandise, and the place was packed! #purrfect

  • Ventured north for handmade pizza 🍕 and pasta 🍝 at @saccomannos1965! Delicious food at really good prices from this family-run business (since 1965!) They just held a grand re-opening in December. Blog post soon! We also discovered a huge fenced in dog park in this area. 🐶 Can’t wait to come back to try more dishes and take the pups to the park. 😊

  • I came for the #Instagrammable Skating Rink. 💕 I think that probably sounds silly, but I do love how “Instagrammable” spaces can encourage people to #ExploreEdmonton! Had a lovely double date at the lovely Victoria Park Oval & Freezeway with @mikethyking, @littlmissandrea & Gordon! ⛸👯‍♀️👯‍♂️

  • Ohhhhh so many feelings. ❤️ I had such an incredible experience watching @traviswall’s @shapingsoundco AND finally meeting Travis! Fun fact: I used to run a fan page for Travis back during his early #SoYouThinkYouCanDance days. He said he used to check the page for updates on himself, lol. 😂❤️ Thank you to the @albertaballetcanada for inviting me to see this phenomenal show with just the most ridiculously talented dancers! 💃🏻🕺 and for asking me to host the pre-show #DanceTalks Q&A. 🤓 Thanks to @nikolevallins for arranging the meet & greet 📸 and thanks to my old friend @jasmine.topham for coming & sharing in the #SYTYCD love! So happy. ❤️

  • I’m such a sucker for eggs on anything—especially on poutine—ESPECIALLY with shoestring skinny fries. 😍 This is The Cure from @centralsocialhall, with red wine gravy, avocado, bacon and a roasted poblano + white cheddar sauce. It’s eggcellent! 🍳🍟😋
