People go crazy for sushi. Rolls can be so pretty that sometimes it’s hard not to just stare. Sushi can be creamy, crunchy, hot, cold, spicy, sweet, pretty much whatever you’re in the mood for. Sushi rolls are (usually) healthy, inexpensive, perfect for sharing, and just down-right delicious, which makes it hard to not want it ALL. THE. TIME.
