Welcome to the Vancouver Sushi Roll Challenge. I have invited restaurants from all over the city to create and enter a Sushi Roll creation into this challenge, some entered their most popular creation from their menu and others created a special Sushi Roll creation just for this challenge. Each restaurant will be featuring their special Sushi Roll creation on their menu from September 18 – October 7, 2018.
How Does this all Work? For the public challenge, you are invited to go out and order any or all of the Sushi Roll creations in this challenge, then you decide who you think has the best sushi roll creation for the People’s Choice award winners.
Share your experiences: Social share by tweeting, instagraming or snapchating your photos throughout the challenge, our twitter and instagram address is @vanfoodster and the hashtag is #SushiRollChallengeYVR
Voting criteria – some things to help you judge your favourite Sushi Roll creations – keep these things in mind: originality, creativity, uniqueness, traditional, non-traditional, price, value and most importantly taste.
Get some friends together and make a day or night of it, visit 2 places or more to share and taste the different Sushi Roll creations or go solo or with a friend– just remember to VOTE for your favourites
