Creative Sushi by Chef Badi- The Ocean Room Sushi Lounge

Greetings! I would like to formally introduce you to our newest Sushi Chef at The Ocean Room restaurant, Chef Awal P. Sitepe… but you may call him Chef Badi (sounds like Body)!

Sushi Chef Badi

Chef Badi has been mastering the art of sushi for the past 9 years throughout Charleston. “My style of sushi I would say is a combination of classic and modern sushi, which I like to call ‘creative sushi’,” states Badi.

Recently Chef Jason and Chef Badi have rewritten the menu in the Sushi Lounge at The Ocean Room, which introduces Badi’s creative sushi style. Some of the newest items to be on the look out for are-
