Yellowtail - Hamachi

Yellowtail Sushi World Orange County OC Best Happy Hour Affordable Japanese Food

One of our favorite items to always get while at the sushi bar is Hamachi, or Yellowtail. It's also known as Japanese Amberjack, though we think that name's too long and that's why we don't usually use it. We always try to include a little bit of the bloodline in our Yellowtail so you can always tell it's the real thing. It also makes it tastier. Yellowtail is always on the Sushi World Happy Hour menu for $2.50 for 2 pieces. Also included in the $2.5 Happy Hour sushi is salmon, peppered salmon, albacore, escolar, masago, shrimp, and natto.

KFC: Tempura Albacore w/ Garlic Ponzu

KFC Tempura Albacore Garlic Ponzu Fish Tastes Like Chicken Orange County OC Sushi World

An item that's been on our favorites menu for awhile now is our KFC! Aptly named, our KFC is tempura fried albacore with a garlic ponzu sauce and it tastes amazing, especially for those who still cannot eat raw fish. Okay, we'll say it. It tastes like chicken. Seriously. Get it and you'll see for yourself. We have a quite a few items on our menu for all levels of sushi so feel free to ask our personable sushi chefs for recommendations based upon your dietary habits. See y'all soon!

Peppered Salmon

Ika - Squid

Ika Squid Sushi Unique Different Crunchy Orange County Sushi World OC Education

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.

Happy Sake Weekend

Kikusui Junmai Sake Weekend Happy Orange County OC Sushi World Chef best

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.

Unagi

Unagi Fresh Water Eel Baked Cooked Sweet Sauce Bowl Nigiri Orange County Sushi World OC

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.
