Cypress Map Sushi World Near Target Knott Katella Orange County OC

For some who may need a little help finding us, we've drawn up this handy dandy map for you. It shows that we are near the major intersection of Katella and Knott and also near Target. It's kinda nice to be able to hit up Target whenever you're out of cereal, lotion, or tampons. It's even nicer to be able to grab some sushi anytime you want when you're making a Target run. And unlike most Japanese restaurants, we're open between lunch and dinner.

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.

Baileys Chocolate Mousse

Jalapeno Poppers

Jalapeno Poppers Appetizers Orange County Sushi World OC

Even though it's not really Japanese, we've made these bad boys our own here at Sushi World. We use the same spread we use for our California Rolls and slather them in Jalapeno halves that are then battered in tempura and then fried. Yep, they're quite awesome.

Yellowtail - Hamachi

Yellowtail Sushi World Orange County OC Best Happy Hour Affordable Japanese Food

One of our favorite items to always get while at the sushi bar is Hamachi, or Yellowtail. It's also known as Japanese Amberjack, though we think that name's too long and that's why we don't usually use it. We always try to include a little bit of the bloodline in our Yellowtail so you can always tell it's the real thing. It also makes it tastier. Yellowtail is always on the Sushi World Happy Hour menu for $2.50 for 2 pieces. Also included in the $2.5 Happy Hour sushi is salmon, peppered salmon, albacore, escolar, masago, shrimp, and natto.

KFC: Tempura Albacore w/ Garlic Ponzu

KFC Tempura Albacore Garlic Ponzu Fish Tastes Like Chicken Orange County OC Sushi World

An item that's been on our favorites menu for awhile now is our KFC! Aptly named, our KFC is tempura fried albacore with a garlic ponzu sauce and it tastes amazing, especially for those who still cannot eat raw fish. Okay, we'll say it. It tastes like chicken. Seriously. Get it and you'll see for yourself. We have a quite a few items on our menu for all levels of sushi so feel free to ask our personable sushi chefs for recommendations based upon your dietary habits. See y'all soon!

Peppered Salmon

Peppered Salmon Best Happy Hour in OC Orange County Sushi World Cypress

Peppered Salmon tastes like salmon that's been peppered. Does that answer your nagging question? Better yet, all you need to know is that it is super yummy and it's only $2.50 for 2 pieces during the best happy hour in all of Orange County! Happy Hour takes place all day on both Mondays and Tuesdays! We're open from 11:30am till 9pm so come early and stay the whole day. We don't mind.

Ika - Squid

Ika Squid Sushi Unique Different Crunchy Orange County Sushi World OC Education

Not all sushi is fish as is evident by this post about Ika, Squid. It definitely has a different texture as compared to traditional fish sushi. It's crunchier and we sear ours ever so lightly on the top to give it a little bit more taste and texture when you bite into it. Plus, it makes it easier to see, as you can tell from the photograph because it is very white. As is with almost everything else on our menu, you can get it as a sushi or as sashimi. Tastes similar to Conch, if you have ever had that. Almost always in stock.

Happy Sake Weekend

Kikusui Junmai Sake Weekend Happy Orange County OC Sushi World Chef best

This picture embodies a pretty perfect weekend to us: a big bottle of Kikusui sake and our sushi chef. That means we're going to drink and eat well and that pretty much means happiness all around. Swing on by this weekend and take a seat at our sushi bar! Talk to our sushi chefs to find out what you like best and they'll make sure to accommodate all your requests as best as they can. And of course, getting a big bottle of sake isn't mandatory but it sure helps, especially if you do decide to drink with our chefs. :-)

Baked Scallop

Baked Scallop Butter Soy Sauce Orange County OC Happy Hour Best Around

A new item that we recently added to the Sushi Word Happy Hour menu is Baked Scallop! Cooked in butter and soy sauce, it's available as one of our 8 appetizers for $3.99 during our Happy Hour which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and from 2pm till 5pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. We do have the best Happy Hour around and we're always making changes to it so that you can try different items on our menu. We don't want you to get bored of us like you did with your last lover.

Unagi

Unagi Fresh Water Eel Baked Cooked Sweet Sauce Bowl Nigiri Orange County Sushi World OC

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.

Red Snapper

Red Snapper Pink White Flesh Sweet Aroma Orange County OC Sushi World

At Sushi World, we like to stick to the basics, like this here Red Snapper. It's a staple that most sushi lovers automatically order and never regret because of its delicate, sweet aroma. There's a lot of flack for other sushi restaurants that try to pass off Tilapia as Red Snapper but if you ever order it from us, you'll see that we always see a bit of skin on there so that you can tell from the pink markings that it really is red snapper. Stop on by and order a few today. We'd love to see ya.

Go Dodger Blue... fin Tuna!

Go Dodger Bluefin Tuna Special Great Deal Orange County OC Sushi World

We, at Sushi World, are very proud of the Los Angeles Dodgers for becoming the National League champions! Up next is the World Series where we're sure they'll take it all home. We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than with some of our awesome bluefin tuna, which is still on special: Bluefin Tuna sushi for $4 and sashimi for $9; Bluefin Toro is $8 for sushi and $18 for sashimi. This is an incredible offer that we just want to make sure sushi lovers (and especially Dodger fans) get to enjoy. Now, what should we offer when they win it all?

Hold the Rice! Low Carbs!

Salmon Carpaccio Jalapeno Yellowtail Low Carb Cypress Orange County OC Sushi World

We don't stick our rice in everything. We have awesome dishes that are pretty much no carbs! Pictured is our Salmon Carpaccio and our super duper popular Jalapeno Yellowtail. Both are delicious and super satisfying, especially if you enjoy great quality sushi but don't want all the rice. We know that living in Southern California, we're all a bit carb-conscious so these two items most definitely fits our lifestyle here. Also, these are both great dishes to get on a date. Bonus!

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!

Sushi World's Happy Hour: Albacore

Orange County Best Happy Hour All Day Tuesdays Albacore Peppered Salmon Sushi World Cypress

We have 8 different sushi items available for $2.50 an order (2 pieces an order!) during our Happy Hour all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and from 2pm till 5pm Wednesdays through Fridays. Albacore is often overlooked but it's a sushi staple that you should always get once in a while. Our sushi chefs usually brush it with some sauce so you don't even have to dip albacore in your soy sauce & wasabi dip. Just eat it as is. The other 7 items for $2.5 are salmon, peppered salmon, yellowtail, shrimp, escolar, masago, and natto.

Hamachi Kama

Hamachi Kama Yellowtail Collar Seared Mixed Greens Salad Ponzu Sauce Orange County OC Sushi World

At Sushi World, we love to use every part of the fish, especially the collars! There's so much meat on there and it's sooooo buttery, it's ridiculous. Hamachi Kama is Yellowtail Collar and we sear it and serve it with a mixed greens salad and some ponzu sauce. You can get some rice, too, but we love it as is. It's a great item to get but especially so if you have someone in your party who loves eating fish but is not quite ready to eat raw fish. It's a pretty popular item but it's only in limited quantities so be sure to order it the next time you roll through.
