Since moving from Korea to Canada in 2006, Jaechun Choi has been sharing his love for sushi through local restaurants. Most recently, he and his wife have been doing this through their new Sushi Tonari location in The MIX Food Court.
“When we were coming up with restaurant name ideas, we wanted a name that spoke truly to the food we serve and the environment we operate in.”
Tonari stuck because in Japanese it means ‘neighbour’. Within this beautiful new location they hope to encompass a friendly and neighbourly feel.
Prior to working in the restaurant industry Jae managed a retail outlet in Korea. He enjoys a challenge and believes that change is good. He has the same perspective about his menu, hoping to build relationships with customers, adapting his menu and incorporating daily specials accordingly.
“We keep it simple and traditional.”
Straight from the Fisherman’s Market to Sushi Tonari’s kitchen, their menu items are always made fresh daily. Whether you are an experienced sushi-eater or looking to try something different, we are excited to have sushi thrown in to The MIX.
