Shrimp Tempura Udon Curry

Orange County Japanese Curry Shrimp Tempura Udon Warm Carrots Rich Yummy

Our Japanese Curry menu is growing! Due to popular demand, we now offer a Shrimp Tempura Curry Udon! We have several new curry offerings like this one in addition to our original Chicken Katsu, Pork Katsu, and Potato Croquettes. Our Japanese Curry is made in-house with plenty of veggies and spices. It's a great option if you want something filling to accompany your sushi meal.

Miso Marinated Cod

Miso Marinated Black Cod Orange County Sushi World Japanese Restaurant

Being a sushi restaurant, not all of our fish or food is served raw. We also have a full kitchen behind our sushi bar ready to serve up a number of various items for patrons looking for something other than sushi, like Hamachi Kama (Yellowtail Collar), Salmon Colllar, Salmon Teriyaki, Chicken Katsu, and the pictured, Miso Marinated Black Cod. They can come a la carte (with rice), or as a combo with Miso Soup, Rice, House Salad, and 5 pieces of Mixed Tempura. It's a great option, especially when you come with a big group where someone is not yet comfortable with sushi.

Who's Ready for Some Sake?

Sake  Sho Chiku Bai Vanilla Custard Cinnamon Sushi Chef Orange County OC Sushi World

Who isn't ready for some sake? This bottle is Sho Chiku Bai, which is a Tokubetsu Junmai. It has aromas of Vanilla, Custard, Cinnamon, and Toasted Rice. Sushi just tastes so much better when it's coupled with the right type of sake. Our servers are well versed and will be able to point you in the correct direction, depending on your tastes and what you order. Some sakes taste better only after eating certain types of fish. That's why we have sake tastings.

Spanish Mackerel

Orange County Sushi Fresh Best Spanish Mackerel Aji Nigiri Green Onions

If you want to move on from sushi basics, try out our Spanish Mackerel (Aji). Just to give you a heads up, it can be fishy if you're not accustomed to it. It's very distinctive as it usually comes with a bit of shiny skin, which is due to the healthy amounts of fish oil in it.

Bluefin TunaPalooza

Outdoor Dining Available

Orange County Sushi Outside Al Fresco Dining Fresh Raw Cypress OC

We love having outdoor dining as an option! See? Something good did come out of the lockdowns. We try to see the positive in every situation! The sun's movement is just perfect for our outdoor dining as we are in the shade for the hours that we are open. It's nice to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful OC weather while still getting your sushi fix in or if you just want to sit down and have a few drinks. That's what we like to do.

Poke Bowl

Poke Bowl Fresh Tuna Albacore Seaweed Cucumber Avocado Tamago Orange County Sushi World OC

You know our Poke Bowl is seriously good because we only use our very own fresh sushi-grade fish for our Poke. We take fresh chunks of Tuna and Albacore and mix it with our very own Hawaiian Poke sauce. Each bowl is accompanied by some seaweed, cucumbers, avocado, tamago (egg), and masago. Oh, and somewhere at the bottom of the bowl is our sushi-grade rice. It's a pretty complete meal and great for lunch or dinner or whenever. Great to get to-go and eat at the beach or park or during a boring meeting at work.

Speedo Roll

Speedo Roll Spicy Tuna Crab Escolar Cilantro Tomatoes Orange County Sushi World OC

The Speedo Roll has officially arrived at Sushi World! Like our Yamaha Roll, we named it after one of our many awesome corporate neighbors in Cypress. Employees from Speedo often frequent Sushi World so we thought it appropriate for us to show them some love with a roll of their own. It features a center of Spicy Tuna, Spicy Crab, and Avocado. It's topped with Escolar, Cilantro, Tomatoes, and Toasted Sesame Seeds. Lightly dressed with a sweet sauce to finish it off. Which neighbor wants the next roll named after them?

Baked Blue Crab Roll by Sushi World

Baked Blue Crab Roll Garlic Aioli Soy Paper Orange County Sushi World OC

A favorite roll from many of our regulars is our Baked Blue Crab Rolls. We make the baked blue crab with garlic aioli fresh in house so you know it's gotta be good! It's accompanied by a little bit of rice and then wrapped in a sesame soy paper. You can always ask for it wrapped in seaweed but we believe it tastes better wrapped in the soy paper. You can also get it as a hand roll if you want it all for yourself. And, there's no raw fish so it's definitely sushi-virgin friendly. We love virgins.

Ankimo (Monkfish Liver)

Ankimo Monkfish Liver Gelatin Sesame Seeds Made In House Excellent Appetizer Orange County OC Sushi World

A very popular dish among sushi aficionados is ankimo, also known as monkfish liver. If you enjoy foie gras, you'll especially enjoy our ankimo because we make ours in-house. It's been called the foie gras of the sea with its delectably rich taste and texture. We serve our ankimo in perfect little medallions with some gelatin and sesame seeds as garnish. Ankimo is one of those dishes where the longer you let it sit out and cool down to room temperature, the better it will taste. Next time you come in, give it a try if you're an adventurous sushi lover with exquisite taste buds.

Bluefin Toro Sashimi

Bluefin Toro Sashimi Tuna Fatty Belly Yummy Orange County Sushi World OC

We really shouldn't have to say much about this beauty. Just look at it. Absolutely beautiful. The fattiest and most delicious part of our Bluefin Tuna is the most desired and you can easily see why. You can see the beautiful fatty lines running all across these pieces of sashimi. Of course, this is in very limited supply so you better hurry up and come on in and get it while we still have it. Of course, our regular Bluefin Tuna Sashimi isn't bad either so that's always an option if we're out of Toro.

A past special that is now on 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.

It's very simple, contains no raw fish, and is great any time of the day! It's great for sushi virgins who are not quite ready to eat raw fish. Unagi a great way to work them into sushi, being that it's baked eel. If eel freaks them out, then tell them it's baked fish.

Smoked Albacore Hand Rolls

Smoked Albacore Hand Roll Yummy Cone Sushi Orange County OC

We didn't want to like this roll but we do. In fact, we love this hand roll. Smoked Albacore Hand Rolls are absolutely delicious. We always thought smoked albacore is kinda like cheating. We love presenting to our customers raw fishes in unique styles and presentations. Smoked Albacore was just too easy. But we ended up putting it on the menu because our customers love it. And now, we love it as well. As pure sushi enthusiasts, this is one of our delightfully delicious guilty pleasures.

Tempura Green Tea Ice Cream

Tempura Green Tea Ice Cream Chocolate Cake Mochi Japanese Dessert Orange County OC Cypress Sushi World

After all that sushi, you got room for dessert? Of course you do! Even if you have to make room, you should for our Tempura Green Tea Ice Cream that's wrapped in chocolate cake? How do we do that? Well, that's our secret. All you have to concern yourself with is eating it all cause you really can't pack it up to go. You can share this with another person or two but if you're a pig like us, you'll get one for yourself. It's worth it. And also worth the extra hour at the gym. Oh, and don't forget to some Mochi Ice Cream as well.

Albacore Carpaccio: Topped With Fried Arugula, Garlic Chips, Ponzu Sauce

Albacore Carpaccio Ponzu Sauce Garlic Chips Fried Arugula Cypress Orange County OC Sushi World

An absolute favorite amongst our regulars is our Albacore Carpaccio. While the delicious slices of albacore are hidden underneath an avalanche of fried arugula, it's also accented with a ponzu sauce and garlic chips. It has a little bit of everything that makes it great as an appetizer or as a main dish during your meal. The fried arugula has a nice crispy crunch to it but couple it with the tenderness of the albacore will make it every bite an absolute joy in your mouth.
