Kikusui Sake

Kikusui Junmai Ginjo Chrysanthemum Water Orange County OC Sushi World Sake

One of the most popular sakes out there right now is Kikusui Junmai Ginjo. It's brewed with rice, water, and yeast out of Niigata-ken and is considered a dry sake. It's also called, "Chrysanthemum Water." We have heard from several customers that they notice hints of cantaloupe with a slight banana aroma in this sake Or maybe, you might taste something different? If so, we'd love to hear about it! It goes great with all kinds of sushi so it's a great one to get in general. We always have both a small bottle and a large bottle chilled and ready to serve.

Happy Bar Happy Hour

Happy Sushi Bar Orange County OC Happy Hour Best Chefs Customers Best Deal

There's no doubt our sushi bar is always happy during our Happy Hour, which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm. Our chefs love taking care of our customers and it shows. Our customers love it too, especially if they're paying for $2.50 sushi (for 2 pieces, 8 to choose from), $3.50 appetizers (over 10 to choose from), $2.50 sake, and $10 Sapporo pitchers. And there are still other items on our HH menu to make you happy. We want you to start ever week off right: happy. What's the point to life if you're not happy?

Sushi. Sake. Leave Dad Alone.

Sushi Sake Leave Dad Alone for Father's Day Perfect Quiet No Sports Orange County OC Sushi World

We can read all father's minds for Father's Day. All they want is sushi, sake, and for everyone to leave them alone. Yeah, that's pretty accurate. Fathers don't want to celebrate anything. They just want to eat, drink, and to be left alone. It's kinda funny that Father's Day lands on the calendar when there's not much sports going on. Yes, there's baseball but there's no football, basketball, or even hockey. It would be awesome if Father's Day was just a little earlier in the year.

$10 Sapporo Pitcher All Day Mondays & Tuesdays

$10 Sapporo Pitcher All Day Happy Hour Mondays Tuesdays Orange County Sushi World OC

Every Monday and Tuesday, you should come into Sushi World just to have a pitcher. It's only $10 all day on both days. Why? Because it's our Happy Hour. And what better way to get happy than with a $10 Sapporo pitcher. After you're all lubricated, you might as well order some $2.50 sushi, $3.50 appetizers, and a bunch of other specials on our HH menu. And yes, there are plenty of items to choose from. And if you need even more alcoholic lubrication, there's always $2.50 sake.

Three Amigos Roll: Spicy Scallops, Tuna, Albacore

Three Amigos Roll Spicy Scallops Tuna Albacore Poke Sauce Orange County OC Sushi World

Do you like Spicy Scallops, Tuna, and Albacore? Well, you're in luck. Have we got a sushi roll for you. We call it the Three Amigos Roll because they truly all are friends with one another. We take a spicy scallops sushi roll, top it with avocado, tuna, and albacore, and then dress it with poke sauce and scallions. There's so many complimenting flavors, it's ridiculous. And no, you don't need two other friends to enjoy this roll. Just get it. You won't regret it. And if you'd like a customized sushi roll not on our menu, feel free to suggest it to our sushi chefs.
