We like to drop a little sushi knowledge every now and then because we feel it's necessary so that you know what you're eating and you get what you want. We have often received questions about the difference between these two and here it is. They are both roes, or the eggs of fish. Masago, is much smaller and it makes sense, because they come from small fish. Ikura is generally Salmon roe, because they are a bigger fish and therefore, produce bigger eggs. Because Masago is much smaller, it's kinda crunchy when you bite into them.
We don't hold back when we give you a serving of Ikura. That's how much we love it and that's how much we know you'll love it. For those that don't know, Ikura is salmon roe. It has a very distinct taste, like a nice sharp salty flavor. The best part is when they burst in your mouth as you're eating them. They go well with a lot of other sushi dishes but we often get them as is because they're just as enjoyable on their own. Get a few orders today to see what we're talking about. It'll soon become one of your sushi favorites.
We often neglect how great our Ikura is so we're going to give some special attention to it the next couple of weeks. As we do with everything on our menu, we go out of our way to find the best quality products at the most reasonable prices so that we can pass on to you quality sushi and Japanese cuisine that is delicious and affordable. If you're not already an Ikura fan, you should try it out. It's quite delightful on its own or when it's used to help garnish one of our other plates.
Egg-cellent, get it? Because the picture is of salmon roe (egg) with a quail egg on top. Eggs with eggs, all in a sushi. Oh so yummy and such a great way to kick off the weekend. We hope everyone's been having a great year so far. Just a reminder that we do have happy hour every day from 2pm to 5pm, even on the weekends. Why? Because we have the best happy hour in Orange County and we want you to be able to enjoy every day of the week! We know some of you have regular jobs during the week.
The weekend is here in the OC and it's beautiful out, as usual. After you take advantage of being outside, come on in Sushi World where we'll take care of you and make your weekend even more perfect. Like this ikura, which is obviously salmon roe with a quail egg on top. Eggs with another egg. Don't forget, we also have happy hours all weekend from 2pm to 5pm everyday, even on the weekends. Always the best happy hour in the OC.
Sometimes, all you need is a simple picture to make you realize that life is so great. Our picture of a salmon roe sushi with a quail egg on top does that for us. It's so simple and it makes us happy. Especially since the salmon roe is overflowing over the seaweed. So good! If you haven't tried it yet, you must! It's a great way to start a session at out sushi bar! It's a great way to start your weekend! It's a great way to start anything! Even making a baby!
