Pop Rocks Sushi Roll

Pop Rocks Sushi Roll Orange County OC Sushi World Experiment Try Anything Fun Sushi Chefs

Our sushi chefs are always adventurous and trying out new things. There was a time when we offered a Pop Rocks Sushi Roll on our specialty board for a while. We're not sure about how it was received but it was sure fun to make it and serve it for a while. Pop Rocks will always have that nostalgic quality for some of us adults who had to eventually grow up. We'll try to keep you informed about all of our different creations but the only way to truly know what we're experimenting with is if you come on in and take a seat at out sushi bar.

Salmon Slabs

Yeah, we've got these slabs of salmon just lying around, waiting for you to come on in. And you should, especially during Happy Hour, which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm. Why? Because Salmon sushi is only $2.50 during our HH. You get 2 pieces of sushi per order so that comes out to be only $1.25 per sushi. The other sushi available for the same price during HH are albacore, yellowtail, peppered salmon, escolar, masago, nato, and shrimp. And don't forget about our other HH specials: $2.50 sake, $3.50 appetizers, and $10 Sapporo pitchers.

Salmon Avocado Roll on the Happy Hour Menu

An item that is often neglected on our Happy Hour menu (and in general) is our Salmon Avocado Roll. It's very simple: just a piece of salmon and avocado in the center, wrapped in seaweed, rice, and toasted sesame seeds. Such a simple sushi roll but definitely hits the spot for taste and convenience. Our sushi chefs can whip this little bad boy up quickly so if you're in a rush to eat, try this one out. It's only $4 on our HH menu along with the usual culprits: $2.50 sushi, $2.50 sake, $3.50 appetizers, and $10 Sapporo pitchers.

Sake Bottle Hot Line Them Up Orange County Japanese Sushi World OC

Yay! The weekend is finally here and you get to kick back and relax. Well, we're not sure how you do that but if you look at this picture, this is how we do it. We line those sake bottles up and one by one, we knock them all down. Of course, we do this all the while eating some delicious sushi carefully prepared and crafted by our team of talented sushi chefs. They are always ready and willing to serve you so feel free to take a seat at our sushi bar or, if you have the tendency of ordering a lot of food (and a lot of sake), then get a table.

Cypress Roll - Strawberries & Shrimp Tempura

Cypress Roll Strawberries Shrimp Tempura Snow Crab Cucumber Avocado Sweet Sauce Orange County OC Sushi World

It's been a minute since we've posted about one of our sushi rolls. Let's get back on track with our signature roll, our Cypress Roll! It's center consists of shrimp tempura, cucumber, and avocado. It's topped with our snow crab mix, strawberries, and a sweet sauce. So, as you can tell, it has not raw fish in it so it's very sushi-virgin safe. Despite that, it is still very delicious and tasty. We wouldn't name it after the city we're in for nothing. It's been a minute. That's really a weird new expression these kids have come up with nowadays.

Beef Tataki - Happy Hour Item

Beef Tataki Orange County OC Happy Hour All Day Mondays Tuesdays Appetizers Sushi World

Just because it's not fish, don't disregard our Beef Tataki on the Happy Hour menu. It's an incredibly tasty item that we carefully make in-house. It is raw but you won't even notice it when you put it in your mouth. After it's been marinated, seared, and then aged, we carefully slice the beef into little medallions and then lightly dress them. An order is only $3.50 (along with 10+ other appetizers) during our Happy Hour, which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm.

Delicious Uni

Yep, it's not for everyone. But for those who know how delicious Uni is, this close-up should make your mouth water. You can see the texture, which although looks like your tongue, it just melts in your mouth like butter. It's almost always on our specials board so just holler it out to our awesome sushi chefs and they'll whip up a few orders for you. It definitely goes well with one of our premium sakes. If you ever need help deciding on a sake pairing, don't hesitate to ask our servers or our chefs (if they're not too busy) for an appropriate sake that will best suit your liking.
