An unforgettable dessert at Lionfish

An unforgettable dessert at Lionfish

One of the unfortunate parts about being one of the premier San Diego Sushi joints is that dessert often gets overlooked. And we can’t really be too mad. It just means that people are excited about our entrées, oysters, fresh catch seafood and cold/hot plates. So the best thing that we could do to keep dessert from being the unsung hero is to raise awareness! There are two kinds of people in the world: those with a sweet tooth, and liars. Which one are you? Don’t worry, that’s a rhetorical question, but we’ve got to ask you one very important question: did you save room for dessert?
