Did you know that these types of sushi are called, Gunkan-Maki? When it's wrapped with nori seaweed with a little rice and then topped with something like Uni, Masago, or Spicy Scallops , they're called Gunkan-Maki. "Gunkan" means battleship. Would you like to sink these battleships down your throat?
One of our favorite items is our Ikura Quail Egg Uni combo! It's simply Ikura with Uni and a freshly cracked quail egg on top. We do not really recommend you getting this for delivery or take out as it will most likely not keep its form. Sooooo, if you insist on dining in with us to get this item and many others like it, we will not stop you from dining in. Swing on by soon for your favorites or for something new and different. Just ask our chefs!
Did you know that you can come in and just get a lineup of sushi just like this? Take a seat at our sushi bar and interact with our sushi chefs The more they know about what you like, the more they'll be able to create a custom lineup with your preferences. Otherwise, you can just tell them how many pieces of sushi you'd like and they'll take care of the rest. It's another way we do "omakase." or Chef's Choice. Makes the decision process so much easier for everyone.
What kind of sushi eater are you? If we give you a lineup of sushi with Uni in it, would you eat the Uni first or last? Do you enjoy leaving the richest piece of sushi for last or do you like to eat it first? Typically, we would save it for last since the Uni can be overpowering and thus, effect the flavor of the rest of the sushi in the lineup. But of course, it depends on your palette and tastebuds. If you take your time between each sushi piece and drink some sake and eat some ginger, you can eat sushi in whatever order you like.
Why not make it a great weekend and come on in and make it a sushi weekend! We know how to treat you right. Just sit on down at our sushi bar and one of our awesome sushi chefs will surely take care of whatever you might need. If you're adventurous, let them decide for you. If you're particular, tell them what you like and they'll surely do their best to make you happy. And in case you can't come by over the weekend, swing on by for Happy Hour which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays.
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.
It's Sunday! Time for some football! And for some sushi! Why not come by and watch the game with us? Kick back and enjoy the game as our chefs prepare delicious morsels of sushi for you. Feel free to leave it in their hands and they'll come up with some tasty combinations for you. Remember that if you come in between 2pm and 5pm, it's happy hour. Yes, even on the weekends, we have happy hour, the best happy hour in the OC!
If you've never tried Uni (sea urchin), you're missing out. It's so deliciously rich and flavorful. It's decadent. It's hard for some people to get over the texture or the appearance but it's definitely worth it. But be careful, you will get hooked once you really enjoy it. Come on by and try it out. Our sushi chefs will walk you through it. If you already love uni, then you know what we're talking about. Just drool over this picture cause it's a good one.
Every time we eat sushi, we have to have at least one order of Uni, otherwise known as Sea Urchin. While it is not for everyone, it is recommended that you try it at least once, if you truly love sushi. It's like a firm custard, but it is very rich and buttery. A common misconception about uni is that it is actually the roe of the Sea Urchin. In fact, the Uni that we eat in sushi consists of the gonads of Sea Urchins. The gonads produce the roe for this prickly sea creature. There you go. You learned something today. Now order a couple of orders for yourself. You deserve it.
