Sushi World Tapas

Japanese Tapas Tako Octopus Jumbo Scallops Hotategai Red Snapper Tai Cherry Salmon Sushi World Orange County OC

We love Spanish Tapas and we realize why. Essentially, sushi is much like the Japanese version of the Spanish Tapas: small, tasty bites eaten with an alcoholic beverage. Every time you take a seat at our sushi bar, it's much like getting Tapas. You pick whatever you wish, like the lineup in the picture of Tako (Octopus), Hotategai (Jumbo Scallops), Tai (Red Snapper), and Cherry Salmon. And then, of course, be sure to have some beer or sake to help wash it all down and clean your palette for the next tasty morsel. Yep, we've got Tapas.

Hotategai - Scallops

Hotategai Scallops Raw Sushi Specials Board Orange County OC Sushi Bar

A very common item on our specials board is our Hotategai, better known as Jumbo Scallops. If you do come in and see it on there, be sure to order at least one serving. It's definitely a different texture and taste from regular fish sushi. If you are familiar with cooked Scallops, raw Hotategai has the same texture except that it might be a bit softer. And its flavor is very refreshing and feels more meaty than your typical raw fish sushi.
