Truffle Escolar

Truffle Escolar Orange Slices No Carb Sushi World Orange County OC

Currently on the Sushi World Specials Board: Truffle Escolar. Yes, it's a very unimaginative name but it does the job.

Live Uni - Sea Urchin

Currently on the Sushi World Specials Board: Live Uni! Yes, this is a rarity for us so if you love Uni like we do, you better come in soon to experience this for yourself. Our sushi chefs will prepare them any way you like, as sushi, sashimi, or you can even eat it straight out of the shell. If the response is great, we'll be sure to try our best to get live sea urchin more frequently. It's all a matter of you, our customers. If you love this type of sushi, please swing on by and show your support for more of these types of items on our menu.

Sushi Burrito

Sushi Burrito Snow Crab Mix No Rice Tuna Salmon Albacore Masago Red Onions

Our sushi chefs are always coming up with new items so it's imperative that you always check our specials board for what they might create this week. Our Sushi Burrito is our latest attempt to try something new. It features an assortment of fish (tuna, salmon, albacore), avocado, masago, red onions, and snow crab mix all wrapped up in a soy paper. Yep. No rice is involved and it's quite tasty and easy to eat. Just pick it up and put it in your mouth. You can dip it if you'd like but trust us when we say there's enough flavor in this burrito that you don't need to dip it.

Jumbo Scallop Sashimi

Jumbo Scallop Sashimi Salt Orange County OC Sushi World Yummy Bar Specials Board

Jumbo Scallop is usually on the Specials Board at Sushi World and we've featured the sushi version before. Now, we want to show you what our Jumbo Scallop Sashimi looks like because it's one of our favorite items to get. The taste and texture is similar but still very different from fish sashimi. There's a bit of firmness to it and they're usually a bit more wet. We serve it with some salt and that's pretty much all you need to enjoy these little bad boys

Iitako Karaage - Baby Octopus

Iitako Karaage Baby Octopus Fried Japanese Restaurant Appetizer Orange County OC Sushi World

A current special that can easily be added to our regular menu is Iitako Karaage, otherwise known as Fried Baby Octopus. There are three babies to an order and they're quite delicious, even for being babies. But don't think of it as eating babies. Think of it as eating delicious morsels of fried gifts from the sea. Yeah, think of it that way and you'll enjoy them as much as we do. Swing on by soon and always check our specials board first before ordering. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Truffle Salmon

Truffle Salmon Specials Board Sushi Bar Orange County OC Oil

Another common item on the Sushi World specials board is our Truffle Salmon and it's exactly what it sounds like. A delicious piece of buttery salmon lightly brushed with some truffle oil. Can you see how it's glistening in the light? And it tastes like butter, if that helps any more with your visualization. And of course, we recommend you sit at our sushi bar and interact with the awesome Sushi World sushi chefs. Tell them what you like and how you like it and they'll do their best to accommodate your taste buds. Let's get some sushi!

Live Sweet Shrimp - Amaebi

Amaebi Live Sweet Shrimp Specialty Specials Board Sushi Bar Chefs Orange County OC

Beautiful, translucent, sweet shrimp. Yum. Yep, they're in stock and alive for the taking. Absolutely one of our favorite items so we always eat them ourselves when they're in stock. Our chefs masterfully serve up the tails of the amaebi with a just a hint of wasabi and rice, if you'd like. They then deep fry the heads for you so you can just eat those like fries, except these are much better. If you do dip it in soy sauce, make sure you only dip it a bit. Doesn't need much because the shrimp itself is so darn tasty.

Delicious Uni

Uni Sea Urchin Specials Board Close Up Sake Pairing Premium Sushi Bar Orange County OC

Yep, it's not for everyone. But for those who know how delicious Uni is, this close-up should make your mouth water. You can see the texture, which although looks like your tongue, it just melts in your mouth like butter. It's almost always on our specials board so just holler it out to our awesome sushi chefs and they'll whip up a few orders for you. It definitely goes well with one of our premium sakes. If you ever need help deciding on a sake pairing, don't hesitate to ask our servers or our chefs (if they're not too busy) for an appropriate sake that will best suit your liking.

Hamachi Ribs

Hamachi Yellowtail Ribs Specialty Rare Sushi Chef Bar Sesame Seeds

Hamachi (Yellowtail) Ribs are not always available so you'll have to ask our chefs if they're in stock. And trust us. They're worth asking about, especially if you haven't tried them. Our chefs carefully carve out the ribs, sear them, and then lightly dress them with a little spice and a little sweetness. You can just pick up each rib and then suck the meat off the bone. It's definitely a different take on "ribs." Normally, this is a wasted portion of the fish but the Japanese are known for not wasting any part of the fish.

Fried Baby Crabs

Fried Baby Crabs Perfect Snack Appetizers like Fries Sushi World Orange County OC

We're not sure how long we'll have it, but currently on our Specials Board is Fried Baby Crabs. Yep, they're tiny and they're delicious. Just pop them in your mouth and eat them all up. It's just like eating fries, but way better. Always, always check our specials board when you come in for a visit. We love mixing things up and adding different things to the menu so there's always something new for you to try. Amaebi is still on the specials board so if you still haven't tried live sweet shrimp, you're definitely missing out.
