Shrimp tempura, filled with spicy crab, asparagus and cream cheese, topped with avocado and barbecue eel. If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m talking about sushi; in particular my favorite roll, Seafront Sushi’s Head Hunter Roll. About six years ago, my friends and I made a day out of Friendship, Food and Fun (#FFF, you know who you are) and visited Seafront for lunch. I was hesitant about trying the rolls because of a past experience as a child. However, I swallowed hard and sunk my teeth into a Volcano Roll. At that moment, I heard the angels sing and heaven was literally in my mouth. Since that life-changing experience, I have become an addict for everything seafood and cream cheese filled rolled up into rice, always looking to get my sushi fix. Here’s a list of my favorite sushi spots in Nassau and my overall ratings. Ratings are 1-5 (one being the lowest, five being the highest).
