Yay! It's finally raining again in Orange County! While we can't expect to get any snow anytime soon, we figured getting a Snowman Roll is just as good. The center consists of shrimp tempura, snow crab mix, avocado, and cucumber and then it's all wrapped up in a delicious soy paper with black sesame seeds on it. And to finish it off, we lightly dress it with a sweet sauce. Why did we name it the Snowman Roll? If you use your imagination, it's a Snowman cut up into delicious pieces that you can eat. Some assembly required.
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.
Although caterpillars might be a delicacy in some countries, they're definitely not included in our Caterpillar Rolls. A Caterpillar Roll is a very popular and common roll. It's a safe "go-to" roll, especially since it doesn't have any raw fish in it. It's great for kids and for non-sushi lovers. Our version is very simple and consists of baked eel (unagi) in the center and topped with fresh slices of avocado on top, which is what lends to its name. Top it off with a sweet sauce and you have a basic roll that will surely please everyone.
The center of our Bentley Roll consists of spicy tuna and avocado. It is then topped with a seared salmon and then dressed with both a sesame dressing and a sweet sauce. Seared salmon and spicy tuna is already a great combination but adding the sesame dressing and the sweet sauce really brings every piece of this roll to perfection. No wonder we called it, "Bentley Roll." It's like a very high end car, one with style, finesse, but most importantly, taste. C'mon in and order some rolls right away.
What a beautiful fall we're having here in Orange County! Chilly at night but nice and sunny during the day. Typical fall in Southern California. Why not come in and sit for a spell at our sushi bar? If you tried a lot of our traditional sushi rolls, you might want to try our Anaheim Chili Tempura Roll. It's got a center made up of smoked salmon, avocado, and rice. It's all inside an Anaheim Chili, battered and then deep fried. Topped with a sweet sauce. Not your traditional sushi roll at all. But extremely delicious!
We always need to pay our respects to our flagship sushi roll, Cypress, named after the great city where we reside. It's so beautiful and yet, so delicious. Center consisting of shrimp tempura, avocado, cucumber and it's topped with snow crab, strawberries, and a sweet sauce. If you order this roll and a few orders of sushi, you're pretty much set. We assure, you will be full and satisfied. Not a lot of places willing to give you that kind of assurances.
