For the week of Thanksgiving, we will have Happy Hour all day, every day. Well, except for Thursday. We'll be closed for Thanksgiving. But yeah, you get to enjoy $2.5 sushi, $3.5 appetizers, $2.5 sake, $10 Sapporo pitcher, and $3.5-$4 various rolls. So you can come in Wednesday before your family gathering, Black Friday while you're shopping, or even on Saturday or Sunday while friends and relatives are still in town. You get to experience Orange County's best Happy Hour. You have no excuse not to be come by this week.
Not all sushi is fish as is evident by this post about Ika, Squid. It definitely has a different texture as compared to traditional fish sushi. It's crunchier and we sear ours ever so lightly on the top to give it a little bit more taste and texture when you bite into it. Plus, it makes it easier to see, as you can tell from the photograph because it is very white. As is with almost everything else on our menu, you can get it as a sushi or as sashimi. Tastes similar to Conch, if you have ever had that. Almost always in stock.
This picture embodies a pretty perfect weekend to us: a big bottle of Kikusui sake and our sushi chef. That means we're going to drink and eat well and that pretty much means happiness all around. Swing on by this weekend and take a seat at our sushi bar! Talk to our sushi chefs to find out what you like best and they'll make sure to accommodate all your requests as best as they can. And of course, getting a big bottle of sake isn't mandatory but it sure helps, especially if you do decide to drink with our chefs. :-)
A new item that we recently added to our Happy Hour menu is Baked Scallop! Cooked in butter and soy sauce, it's available as one of our 10 appetizers for $3.5 during our Happy Hour which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and from 2pm till 5pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. We do have the best Happy Hour around and we're always making changes to it so that you can try different items on our menu. We don't want you to get bored of us like you did with your last lover.
Unagi is fresh water eel baked in a sweet sauce so it's fully cooked. This is a great item to get for sushi virgins who are not quite ready for raw fish. You can get Unagi as regular nigiri sushi or even in a bowl for lunch, which we appropriately named, Unagi Bowl. It's also featured in the center of one of our most popular sushi rolls, our Caterpillar Roll. It's funny that we have never posted about this item before because it's such a common item that we forget to highlight it. Okay, on to the next sushi.
At Sushi World, we like to stick to the basics, like this here Red Snapper. It's a staple that most sushi lovers automatically order and never regret because of its delicate, sweet aroma. There's a lot of flack for other sushi restaurants that try to pass off Tilapia as Red Snapper but if you ever order it from us, you'll see that we always see a bit of skin on there so that you can tell from the pink markings that it really is red snapper. Stop on by and order a few today. We'd love to see ya.
We, at Sushi World, are very proud of the Los Angeles Dodgers for becoming the National League champions! Up next is the World Series where we're sure they'll take it all home. We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than with some of our awesome bluefin tuna, which is still on special: Bluefin Tuna sushi for $4 and sashimi for $9; Bluefin Toro is $8 for sushi and $18 for sashimi. This is an incredible offer that we just want to make sure sushi lovers (and especially Dodger fans) get to enjoy. Now, what should we offer when they win it all?
We don't stick our rice in everything. We have awesome dishes that are pretty much no carbs! Pictured is our Salmon Carpaccio and our super duper popular Jalapeno Yellowtail. Both are delicious and super satisfying, especially if you enjoy great quality sushi but don't want all the rice. We know the summer's over but that doesn't mean you should stop watching what you eat. Besides, Halloween is right around the corner and don't you want to dress up as a sexy something or other this year? Also, these are both great dishes to get on a date. Bonus!
Another common item on the Sushi World specials board is our Truffle Salmon and it's exactly what it sounds like. A delicious piece of buttery salmon lightly brushed with some truffle oil. Can you see how it's glistening in the light? And it tastes like butter, if that helps any more with your visualization. And of course, we recommend you sit at our sushi bar and interact with the awesome Sushi World sushi chefs. Tell them what you like and how you like it and they'll do their best to accommodate your taste buds. Let's get some sushi!
By popular demand, Anthony Francisco will be back at Sushi World this Wednesday, October 10th with his live acoustic performance playing a mix of covers and originals with both island and r&b styles. Have some sushi and sake and sit back and let Anthony dazzle you with his smooth sounds. Perfect way to ease the stress. He will be playing from 6pm till 9pm. Come on out and support our local artists.
We have 8 different sushi items available for $2.50 an order (2 pieces an order!) during our Happy Hour all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and from 2pm till 5pm Wednesdays through Fridays. Albacore is often overlooked but it's a sushi staple that you should always get once in a while. Our sushi chefs usually brush it with some sauce so you don't even have to dip albacore in your soy sauce & wasabi dip. Just eat it as is. The other 7 items for $2.5 are salmon, peppered salmon, yellowtail, shrimp, escolar, masago, and natto.
It's official. Apparently, there's been a bit too much carb consumption going on lately and the powers that be have designated certain carb-free zones all across Orange County. Luckily for you, our Sashimi Sampler is one of the first legitimately sanctioned Carb-Free Zones designated in the OC. If you feel that you have been over carbing as of late, please make sure you get to Sushi World as quickly as possible to order your Sashimi Sampler today. It'll be a great way to help you get that beach body ready for this summer.
Sushi World's awesome sushi chefs are always here to serve you! As you can tell from this photo, our sushi chefs are carefully trained and extremely attentive to details on every single dish we serve. We are nothing without our sushi chefs, our front-line, our direct connection with you, our customers. Our awesome sushi chefs (the best in Orange County!) are ready to serve you whatever your heart (or tummy) desires! We have all your sushi favorites and many, many unique and flavor-intense sushi rolls. Swing on by soon and take a seat at our sushi bar.
A classic sushi roll that is simple and always a great way to start a meal session with us, Tekka Maki, otherwise known as a tuna sushi roll, is on our happy hour menu for only $3.5. Our happy hour, which is the best in Orange County, is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm. Also on our happy hour menu is Negi Hama (Yellowtail sushi roll with green onions) for $3.5, sushi for $2.5, appetizers for $3.5, sake for $2.5, and Sapporo pitchers for only $10. You cannot find a better deal than that in all of Orange County.
After all that sushi, you got room for dessert? Of course you do! Even if you have to make room, you should for our Tempura Green Tea Ice Cream that's wrapped in chocolate cake? How do we do that? Well, that's our secret. All you have to concern yourself with is eating it all cause you really can't pack it up to go. You can share this with another person or two but if you're a pig like us, you'll get one for yourself. It's worth it. And also worth the extra hour at the gym.
Sushi World's small Salmon Skin Salad is only $3.5 for each order and it's always a great way to start out a Happy Hour session with us. It's a nice-sized serving that is fresh and light and features quickly grilled salmon skin with a lot of guilt-free greens. After you eat a few of our Salmon Skin Salads, you can always take advantage of our $2.50 sushi, $3.50 appetizers, $2.50 sake, and $10 Sapporo pitchers during our Happy Hour which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on Wednesdays through Fridays from 2pm till 5pm.
If you have a gathering and need something to wow everyone, try one of our custom party platters! We can make it consist of your favorites or you can leave it up to our awesomely talented chefs to pick and choose what they think would be best for your gathering. The one pictured features bluefin tuna, yellowtail, peppered salmon, albacore, salmon, tekka maki (tuna rolls), and cucumber rolls. It's quite a variety but you can also add a few of our sushi rolls, too. Oh, and you don't have to have a gathering in order to get one of our platters.
Sometimes, a nice picture is all you need. And then you realize that you want more than the picture. You want what's in the picture. Well, if this picture of seared & peppered Big Eye Tuna doesn't make you want to come into Sushi World and order it immediately, then something must be seriously wrong with you. Did you have a bad childhood? Did you not get enough love from your family? Well, in that case. Come on in and we'll take care of you. We'll cure your bad childhood and love you unconditionally. Just come on in and have some sushi with us.
Our Spicy Scallop Hand Roll is simple yet bursting with flavors. We take a big serving of scallops, mix it with our special creamy sauce that includes masago, and then wrap it in seaweed with a slice of cucumber. Pictured here is an alternative you may have if you prefer soy paper over seaweed. We can make any hand roll with either seaweed or soy paper. Both ways are delicious so it's just a matter of preference. You also can get a whole spicy scallop cut roll, if that's what you prefer.
A very popular dish among sushi aficionados is ankimo, also known as monkfish liver. If you enjoy foie gras, you'll especially enjoy our ankimo because we make ours in-house. It's been called the foie gras of the sea with its delectably rich taste and texture. We serve our ankimo in perfect little medallions with some gelatin and sesame seeds as garnish. Ankimo is one of those dishes where the longer you let it sit out and cool down to room temperature, the better it will taste. Next time you come in, give it a try if you're an adventurous sushi lover with exquisite taste buds.
What is Squid Karaage Kushi? It's like Calamari on a stick. Want to know what that tastes like? Order it off of our Happy Hour menu. It's only $3.50 an order and it comes with 2 skewers of squid per order. And Happy Hour just happens to be all day on Mondays & Tuesdays and on all other weeddays from 2pm till 5pm. Enjoy 10 different types of appetizers along with $2.50 sushi (8 varieties to choose from), $2.50 sake, and $10 Sapporo pitchers. Still without a doubt, the best Happy Hour in all of Orange County. Swing on by and you'll see why.
At Sushi World, we do have quite an extensive list of traditional sushi rolls as well as our specialty sushi rolls. But we're not limited to just what's on the menu as the true limit is your imagination. You can always substitute certain ingredients of our sushi rolls to cater to your tastes so feel free request your modifications. We love experimenting and if you come up with a combo worthy to add to our menu, then you'll get to help name it! Now, take a look at this picture and try to figure out all the different parts of it. It's a pretty complicated roll but pretty simple to eat.
Sushi World has been fortunate enough to acquire a 170 lb Bluefin Tuna and we want to share it with you! While supplies last (170 lbs of it!), we are offering Bluefin Tuna sushi for $4 and sashimi for $9. Bluefin Toro is $8 for sushi and $18 for sashimi. What's the difference between the two? Well, we're glad you asked. Bluefin Toro is the fatty tuna that comes from the belly portion of the fish. It's obviously more expensive because there's less of it and it's just so darned delicious. It's like butter. But fish. And good for you. We highly recommend you try it if you haven't before.
If you haven't tried one of our newest appetizers, you're truly missing out. It's Fried Aji, which is a Japanese Mackerel. We bread it, fry it to perfection, and serve it with a sauce of your choice. We drizzle it with our thick ponzu sauce in the picture but we serve it normally without it. What makes it even more awesome is that it's on our already long list of available appetizers (10 to choose from!) for happy hour at only $3.50 each! Happy Hour is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm.
While it's not always on our Specials Board, you should try to order it whenever you do see Mackerel on there. Also known as Saba, Mackerel is very distinctive in its appearance thanks to its shiny skin. It's not for everyone, as there might be a fishy aftertaste that many sushi novices aren't used to. But if you have had it and have enjoyed it, you will also reap the benefits of it being a very healthy fish to eat as it is very high in fish oils, like Omega 3, which is why it is so shiny in the first place.
Yes, our Spicy Tuna Rice Cakes are on our happy hour menu for $4. It features crispy, fried rice cakes topped with spicy tuna, serrano peppers, and our very own poke sauce. We also have a Smoked Albacore Hand Roll, a California Roll, Spicy Tuna Roll, Salmon Avocado Roll, and our Salmon Skin Roll, all for $4 each on our Happy Hour Menu. That is all in addition to our $2.50 sushi, $3.50 appetizers, $2.50 sake, and $10 Sapporo pitchers.
Continuing with our series of awesome bowls, especially for lunch, our Poke Bowl never disappoints! Great to have during lunch or dinner, our poke bowl will always hit the spot, especially if you don't have the time to sit down for a long spell at our sushi bar. It's got a little bit of everything in it: tuna, albacore, masago, tamago, and a bunch of other goodies that make this bowl absolutely perfect. And of course, it's dressed with our very own Hawaiian Poke dressing and it all sits on a bed of our sushi-grade rice.
Unagi is eel baked in a sweet soy sauce. For some who are still wary of eating raw fish, we have this bowl to fulfill your needs. It's quite simple and consists of generous portions of Unagi, Tamago (Japanese egg cake), vegetables, and of course, rice on the bottom. It's a simple, ideal lunch that will truly fill you up. It's full of flavor and perfect for lunch but you can also have it for dinner. Many who especially enjoy Unagi sushi will absolutely love this bowl. And of course, we have other bowls to enjoy, like our Chirashi Bowl, Poke Bowl, and our Negitoro Bowl.
Chirashi is the best, quick lunch you can possibly have. You get so much fish and it's so filling. And, it's so delicious, too. For $15.95, you get tuna sashimi, yellowtail sashimi, salmon sashimi, albacore sashimi, red snapper sashimi, shrimp, tamago, and spicy tuna all in a bowl with some rice. It is a pretty complete meal. And you need to have a good lunch every once in a while. You can also get our awesome chirashi bowl to go. Just order it ahead of time and our expert sushi chefs will gladly put it all together for you. It's like a little work of art in a box. That you can eat.
Our Chicken Teriyaki Bento Boxes are only available during lunch and they're awesome! You have the choice of dining in or taking out. Doesn't matter because either way, it's delicious! Each bento box comes with 2 pieces of shrimp tempura, 3 pieces of vegetable tempura, miso soup, and a bowl of rice. Our Bento Box #1 comes with Spicy Tuna Roll or California Roll and it's only $9.95. Our Bento Box #2 comes with 1 sushi piece of each: tuna, albacore, salmon, and shrimp. It costs $11.95. Our 3rd Bento Box comes with 2 sashimi pieces of tuna, albacore, and salmon. It's priced at $14.95.
