Caterpillar Roll Does Not Contain Actual Caterpillars!

Caterpillar Roll Baked Eel Unagi Avocado Sweet Sauce Cypress Sushi World Orange County OC

Although caterpillars might be a delicacy in some countries, they're definitely not included in our Caterpillar Rolls. A Caterpillar Roll is a very popular and common roll. It's a safe "go-to" roll, especially since it doesn't have any raw fish in it. It's great for kids and for non-sushi lovers. Our version is very simple and consists of baked eel (unagi) in the center and topped with fresh slices of avocado on top, which is what lends to its name. Top it off with a sweet sauce and you have a basic roll that will surely please everyone.

If you've been seated at our sushi bar, you are more than likely to notice our cute little Japanese bobbleheads we have on our counter. They are there for your entertainment but be forewarned not to get them mixed up with our sushi chefs. They don't like their heads being tapped while they're preparing your delicious sushi. For the record, the one on the far right is one of our awesome chefs, James! Say hi to him the next time you see him and show him this picture. He'll love it and get a kick out of it.

Albacore Carpaccio: Topped With Fried Arugula, Garlic Chips, Ponzu Sauce

Albacore Carpaccio Ponzu Sauce Garlic Chips Fried Arugula Cypress Orange County OC Sushi World

An absolute favorite amongst our regulars is our Albacore Carpaccio. While the delicious slices of albacore are hidden underneath an avalanche of friend arugula, it's also accented with a ponzu sauce and garlic chips. It has a little bit of everything that makes it great as an appetizer or as a main dish during your meal. The fried arugula has a nice crispy crunch to it but couple it with the tenderness of the albacore will make it every bite an absolute joy in your mouth. Don't forget our current Bluefin Tuna Special! $4 for an order of 2 pieces. What a great deal.
