Toronto's Torch Pressed Sushi
TORCH is a quaint Aburi-style Oshi Sushi shop located in North York north of Yonge and Finch .
Oshizushi ((押し寿司), translated means “pressed or boxed sushi.” Originally from the Kansei region of Osaka, traditionally, this type of sushi-making is a method where a wooden box is used to pack fermented fish and rice tightly together for preservation.
Aburi (炙る) style refers to “flame-seared” sushi, where the fish is partially charred on the top with a blowtorched.
At TORCH, we are combining the old and new concept of Aburi-Oshizushi style by adapting and changing it to meet today’s modern palette. We aim to make Aburi-Oshi sushi that will “melt-in-your-mouth” by blending together our house-made sauces with only the freshest ingredients. We want to bring what is usually served in a sophisticated and contemporary setting to a more relaxed everyday atmosphere.
