Happy Memorial Day! Happy Hour All Day!

Happy Memorial Day Happy Hour All Day Sushi Sashimi Rolls Handrolls Sushi World Orange County OC

We honor and respect all of the women and men out there who have served and/or are serving in our military, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect this great nation of ours. We truly salute you as you deserve more than just this day to honor you. Being that Memorial Day is on a Monday, we will have Happy Hour all day where you get to enjoy $2.99 sushi, $3.99 appetizers, $12 Sapporo pitchers, and quite a few other specially priced items. And in case you miss it on Monday, it's all day on Tuesday as well.

Japanese Jumbo Scallops, Ankimo, Amaebi

Japanese Jumbo Scallops Monkfish Liver Ankimo Amaebi Live Sweet Shrimp Oysters Orange County OC

Every time you come to visit Sushi World, you can have something different. And we encourage you to try something different every time. Some items to consider adding to your sushi repertoire are our Japanese Jumbo Scallops, in-house made Ankimo (Monkfish Liver), fresh Amaebi (Live Sweet Shrimp) with deep fried heads, and our freshly shucked Oysters on a half shell. All are fantastic on their own but we highly recommend you try them all out eventually.

Get Your Live Sweet Shrimp! Amaebi

Live Sweet Shrimp Amaebi Deep Fried Heads Cypress Orange County OC Sushi World

We have a tank of live sweet shrimp always ready for our special customers who enjoy amaebi. We understand that it's not for everyone but we do strongly suggest you try it at least once in your lifetime. We use the body of the live sweet shrimp and make it into a nigiri sushi or sashimi (your choice!) that is absolutely delicious. And then, we take the heads, lightly batter them, and then deep fry them for you. It's like eating sweet shrimp potato chips. So you have the two contrasting textures: the softness of the shrimp's body and the crunchiness of the heads.

Happy Sushi Weekend

The sushi in this picture is just a few of the items that we regularly feature at our sushi bar, like Red Snapper, Bluefin Tuna, Yellowtail, and Salmon. But we also have such favorites as Truffle Salmon, Halibut, and Japanese Jumbo Scallops.

Spanish Mackerel

Orange County Sushi Fresh Best Spanish Mackerel Aji Nigiri Green Onions

If you want to move on from sushi basics, try out our Spanish Mackerel (Aji). Just to give you a heads up, it can be fishy if you're not accustomed to it. It's very distinctive as it usually comes with a bit of shiny skin, which is due to the healthy amounts of fish oil in it.

Bluefin TunaPalooza

Baked Blue Crab Roll by Sushi World

Baked Blue Crab Roll Garlic Aioli Soy Paper Orange County Sushi World OC

A favorite roll from many of our regulars is our Baked Blue Crab Rolls. We make the baked blue crab with garlic aioli fresh in house so you know it's gotta be good! It's accompanied by a little bit of rice and then wrapped in a sesame soy paper. You can always ask for it wrapped in seaweed but we believe it tastes better wrapped in the soy paper. You can also get it as a hand roll if you want it all for yourself. And, there's no raw fish so it's definitely sushi-virgin friendly. We love virgins.

Ankimo (Monkfish Liver)

Ankimo Monkfish Liver Gelatin Sesame Seeds Made In House Excellent Appetizer Orange County OC Sushi World

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.

Bluefin Toro Sashimi

Bluefin Toro Sashimi Tuna Fatty Belly Yummy Orange County Sushi World OC

We really shouldn't have to say much about this beauty. Just look at it. Absolutely beautiful. The fattiest and most delicious part of our Bluefin Tuna is the most desired and you can easily see why. You can see the beautiful fatty lines running all across these pieces of sashimi. Of course, this is in very limited supply so you better hurry up and come on in and get it while we still have it. Of course, our regular Bluefin Tuna Sashimi isn't bad either so that's always an option if we're out of Toro.

Gunkan Maki

Gunkan Maki Uni Masago Spicy Scallops Seaweed Nori Rice Orange County Sushi World OC

Did you know that these types of sushi are called, Gunkan-Maki? When it's wrapped with nori seaweed with a little rice and then topped with something like Uni, Masago, or Spicy Scallops , they're called Gunkan-Maki. "Gunkan" means battleship. Would you like to sink these battleships down your throat?

Miso Marinated Cod

Miso Marinated Black Cod Orange County Sushi World Japanese Restaurant

Being a sushi restaurant, not all of our fish or food is served raw. We also have a full kitchen behind our sushi bar ready to serve up a number of various items for patrons looking for something other than sushi, like Hamachi Kama (Yellowtail Collar), Salmon Colllar, Salmon Teriyaki, Chicken Katsu, and the pictured, Miso Marinated Black Cod. They can come a la carte (with rice), or as a combo with Miso Soup, Rice, House Salad, and 5 pieces of Mixed Tempura. It's a great option, especially when you come with a big group where someone is not yet comfortable with sushi.

Don't Be the Only One Dressed Up!

Caterpillar Roll Jerks Costumes Halloween Tuna Red Snapper Tako Salmon Cypress OC Orange County Sushi World

Don't you hate it when you go out and everyone agrees to dress up and then it turns out you're the only one? Yeah, our Caterpillar Roll knows exactly how that feels, especially around a platter of tuna, salmon, tako, and red snapper nigiri. Come dressed up as a sushi roll and we'll give you a free sake! But please, if you do, take a picture while you're at Sushi World and post it publicly so that we can see it, too! We hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween out there. If you don't get enough treats, come on in! We'll surely "treat" you right!

Dragon Roll

Dragon Roll Shrimp Tempura Unagi Baked Eel Avocado Sushi World Roll Orange County

Swing on by soon and try out our Dragon Roll! It features a Shrimp Tempura center and it's topped with Unagi (Baked Eel), and Avocado. It's very simple, contains no raw fish, and is great any time of the day! It's great for sushi virgins who are not quite ready to eat raw fish. Unagi a great way to work them into sushi, being that it's baked eel. If eel freaks them out, then tell them it's baked fish. If that doesn't work, don't bring them next time so you can enjoy your sushi in peace.

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 fried 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.

Engawa - Halibut Fin

Engawa Halibut Fin Orange County OC Sushi Not Common Cypress Garden Grove

Halibut Fin. We don't always have this item in stock but it's definitely worth a try if you haven't ever tasted it. It takes a lot of work from our sushi chefs to produce this piece of fish every time but once you taste it, you'll be able to appreciate it. This is an item you can get if you have had all the usual sushi basics and want to try something new.

Tempura Green Tea Ice Cream

Tempura Green Tea Ice Cream Chocolate Cake Japanese Dessert Orange County OC Cypress Sushi World

So, you've just finished a fantastic meal at Sushi World (really, there's no other option). You think you don't have any more room for dessert but you realize that we have a tempura green tea ice cream that's deep fried and wrapped in a chocolate cake. Can you really resist? Yeah, we didn't think so. Doesn't matter how much sushi or sake you've had, you still have room for this awesome dessert. Great to share with someone or keep it all for yourself. They can get their own.

Superman Roll

Superman Roll Soy Paper Tuna Salmon Crab Garlic Ponzu Eel Sauce Orange County Sushi World OC

It's official! We've added another unique sushi roll to our already extensive list of sushi rolls. Our Superman Roll has been floating around amongst our regulars for some time now so we've decided to make it a regular part of our menu. First of all, it features no rice, a very common request from our patrons. It's tuna, salmon, and imitation crab in the center and wrapped with a soy paper and then dressed with fried garlic, green onions, ponzu sauce, and our eel sauce. If you can't tell, this sushi roll is extremely tasty.

Agedashi Tofu

Agedashi Tofu Dashi Lightly Battered Fried Green Onions Orange County Sushi World OC

We have quite an extensive menu and an item that has been humbly on there forever is our Agedashi Tofu. It's a very simple Japanese dish consisting of lightly battered and fried tofu cubes in a dashi sauce. A little green onion on top and that's about it. Very simple yet tasty. It's a great appetizer to get in between all that sushi you're eating while at Sushi World. Next time you swing by, be sure to look at our whole menu to see if there might be something else you enjoy. If not, always stick to your favorites. And also always check our Specials Board.

Unagi Bowl

Unagi Bowl Best in Orange County OC Sushi Sashimi Baked Eel Eat Healthy

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.

Hand Rolls

Hand Roll Smoked Albacore Spicy Tuna Blue Crab Salmon Skin Cypress Orange County OC Sushi World

Hand rolls are for selfish people like you. They're made for one person and you get to hold it and eat it all by yourself. It's kinda weird and awkward to share a hand roll. Our Hand Rolls are made to order and can pretty much consist of anything you can think of. If you can especially get it as a sushi roll, we can make a hand roll version of it. We also can use a soy paper instead of seaweed paper for any hand roll.
