5 Delicious Reasons You Still Need to Taste the Talk at Edo Japan

Published January 24, 2020 at 6:45 pm


Have you tasted what all the talk is about yet?

Since it opened in Mississauga last year, Edo Japan has delighted residents as one of the city’s only restaurants for fresh, delicious Japanese-inspired dishes prepared with minimal wait time (referred to as their Fresh Take concept).

The franchise, which started in 1979, has been pleasing millions of western Canadians for decades, quickly expanding to operate more than 140 locations in the country. Their first street front location in Ontario is at Heartland Town Centre, in the same plaza as Best Buy.

Now, in 2020, Edo Japan is continuing to roll out entirely new ways for you to enjoy their terrific menu. For a limited time, you can try a Miso Soup for free with the purchase of any Bento Box during Edo Japan’s Try it Tuesday, every Tuesday until March 3rd exclusively at Heartland Town Centre! (While quantities last, limited to one per customer per order.)

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Edo Japan’s distinct offerings. Every item on their extensive menu is a whole other reason to visit! Honestly, choosing just five of them is an almost impossible task (almost!).

With that all said, here are five delicious reasons you absolutely need to try Edo Japan:

5. Try one of Edo Japan’s veggie offerings, or customize your dishes with healthier options.

Edo Japan is one of the best restaurants in the city for those looking for veggie-friendly options! Their selection of delicious meat-based dishes is rivaled only by their selection of veggie dishes, and most of their menu items have a veggie equivalent. Not only can you customize your dishes to not include meat, there are also other options available for health-conscious eaters, such as the new Miso Soup, or swapping out white rice for cauliflower rice, which is high in fibre and low in calories and carbs.

4. Get anything from Edo Japan’s selection of delicious hot soups.

There’s nothing like a good, steaming hot bowl of soup! Combine your choice of ramen or udon noodles with Sukiyaki beef, Teriyaki chicken, shrimp, or just veggies. Each bowl is packed with a tasty supply of carrots, snow peas, edamame, and bok choy all in a hearty broth. Alternatively, go for the Miso Soup, which features savoury broth, miso, fried tofu, and shelled edamame, topped with green onions and nori strips.

3. Try Edo Japan’s Teriyaki dishes topped with their famous Teriyaki sauce, or taste freedom with their completely customizable bento boxes.

You can’t go wrong with a mouth-watering Teriyaki dish from Edo Japan. Enjoy perfectly grilled chicken or succulent salmon with broccoli, carrots, cabbage, and mushrooms on your choice of white or brown rice. Of course, you can’t forget to top it all off with Edo Japan’s famous and highly coveted Teriyaki sauce, which helped put the franchise on the map when it was starting out all those years ago in 1979. It’s made from a secret, time-honoured recipe, and most importantly, it’s delicious. How delicious? Try it for yourself and find out!

If you’re looking for a full, quick meal that offers total customization, then a bento box from Edo Japan is for you. Pick from their extensive bento box selection including Sukiyaki Beef, Teriyaki Chicken, Sizzling Shrimp and more, combined with your choice of rice, veggies, and their famous Teriyaki sauce. You also get your choice of two sides including sushi rolls, Gyoza dumplings, sea salt edamame, or sesame chili edamame.

2. Grab sushi every day of the week, with a special offer during Sushi Sundays!

1. Share, create, and enjoy a delicious meal with the upcoming Shariyaki Pack.

Even with so many great items already available, the restaurant is continuing to expand its menu all the time. For example, their Shariyaki Pack (which will launch later this year) is Edo Japan’s best in shareable food, serving four people with sharing sizes of chicken or beef, veggies, rice, noodles, and two sides. Whether you’re eating with the family or a group of friends, the Shariyaki Pack lets everyone have fun making their own Teriyaki meal!
