A sushi Menorah was introduced this Chaukah at a trendy Kosher Chinese restaurant in Montreal, Canada.
Visitors to Yakimono Sushi Bar on Decarie Blvd. got to see a 3 foot Chanukah Menorah made of sushi rolls.
The Lubavitch owner, Mendy Mochkin, lit the holiday attraction every night with the proper blessings (of the lighting, not the eating).
“This is the first sushi Menorah,” a proud Mochkin told a COLlive reporter.
“Did you see how excited the people are and all the pictures that were being taken?!”
It was created with real vinegar rice, sheets of seaweed and the traditional fillings. Mochkin estimated the Menorah was comprised of 150 pieces of sushi.
The name Yakimono was given to the restaurant because, “The first two letters in the name Yakimono is one of G-d’s names and ‘kimono’ is the authentic Japanese clothing,” says the owner. “We wanted G-d to be with us in this Japanese adventure.”
