Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Sashimi Sampler Labor Day Weekend Red Snapper Tuna Salmon Yellowtail Albacore

We hope everyone has a lovely Labor Day weekend in Orange County, California! Don't forget to come on by for some sushi, sashimi, sake, and fun! If you'd rather party at home, you can always order our stuff for pick-up. Or, you can always get one of our awesome party platters as well. If you do come by, however, our Sashimi Sampler is always a good idea. It features generous slices of our favorite sashimi fishes. And don't forget we have Happy Hour all day on Labor Day!

Engawa - Halibut Fin

Engawa Halibut Fin Orange County OC Sushi Not Common Cypress Garden Grove

Halibut Fin. We don't always have this item in stock but it's definitely worth a try if you haven't ever tasted it. It takes a lot of work from our sushi chefs to produce this piece of fish every time but once you taste it, you'll be able to appreciate it. This is an item you can get if you have had all the usual sushi basics and want to try something new.

Tempura Green Tea Ice Cream

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

So, you've just finished a fantastic meal at Sushi World (really, there's no other option). You think you don't have any more room for dessert but you realize that we have a tempura green tea ice cream that's deep fried and wrapped in a chocolate cake. Can you really resist? Yeah, we didn't think so. Doesn't matter how much sushi or sake you've had, you still have room for this awesome dessert. Great to share with someone or keep it all for yourself. They can get their own.

Superman Roll

Superman Roll Soy Paper Tuna Salmon Crab Garlic Ponzu Eel Sauce Orange County Sushi World OC

It's official! We've added another unique sushi roll to our already extensive list of sushi rolls. Our Superman Roll has been floating around amongst our regulars for some time now so we've decided to make it a regular part of our menu. First of all, it features no rice, a very common request from our patrons. It's tuna, salmon, and imitation crab in the center and wrapped with a soy paper and then dressed with fried garlic, green onions, ponzu sauce, and our eel sauce. If you can't tell, this sushi roll is extremely tasty.

Unagi Bowl

Unagi Bowl Best in Orange County OC Sushi Sashimi Baked Eel Eat Healthy

Unagi is eel baked in a sweet soy sauce. For some who are still wary of eating raw fish, we have this bowl to fulfill your needs. It's quite simple and consists of generous portions of Unagi, Tamago (Japanese egg cake), vegetables, and of course, rice on the bottom. It's a simple, ideal lunch that will truly fill you up. It's full of flavor and perfect for lunch but you can also have it for dinner. Many who especially enjoy Unagi sushi will absolutely love this bowl.

Hand Rolls

Hand Roll Smoked Albacore Spicy Tuna Blue Crab Salmon Skin Cypress Orange County OC Sushi World

Hand rolls are for selfish people like you. They're made for one person and you get to hold it and eat it all by yourself. It's kinda weird and awkward to share a hand roll. Our Hand Rolls are made to order and can pretty much consist of anything you can think of. If you can especially get it as a sushi roll, we can make a hand roll version of it. We also can use a soy paper instead of seaweed paper for any hand roll.

Yummy Roll Equals Happy Tummy Roll

Yummy Roll California Escolar Lemon Slice Serrano Pepper Sriracha Sesame Seeds Sushi World Orange County OC Cypress

Our Yummy Roll actually makes both your tummy and your mouth happy. Here's why are Yummy Roll deserves its name: It's a California Roll that's been suped up on flavor steroids. So we take a basic California Roll (snow crab mix, avocado, cucumber center) and top it with escolar, a lemon slice, a serrano pepper slice, a dab of sriracha, sesame seeds, and then dressed with a soy mustard dressing. Absolutely deserves its name in spades. It is the newest sushi roll added to our extensive sushi roll list and it's quite unique. Swing on by and give it a try on your next visit.

Who Eats the Last Piece of Sushi?

Cypress Roll Strawberries Sushi Roll Who Gets the Last Piece Orange County OC Sushi World

Whenever you order a sushi roll, you never really know how many pieces you will have. Often times, you will end up with an uneven number of pieces that don't match the number of people in your party. What to do when you get down to the last piece and you all have eaten the same amount? Who's the bigger pig? Who needs it more? Who's paying the bill? If that's the case, just order another roll. And another. Up until everyone is too full to eat anymore or you finally come down to every one eating the same exact amounts. Get a Cypress Roll.

Salmon Skin Hand Roll in Sesame Wrapper

Salmon Skin Hand Roll Sesame Wrapper Paper Happy Hour All Day Orange County OC Sushi World

If you prefer, we can make any sushi roll with a sesame wrapper (or paper) instead of the usual seaweed wrapper. It's really a preference of choice. You might find that you like certain hand rolls with one wrapper over the other. We really don't mind. Just let our sushi chefs know and they'll gladly make the adjustment. In this picture, you'll see our Salmon Skin Hand Roll with the Sesame Wrapper. It's only $4 during our Happy Hour which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm.

Salmon Slabs

Salmon Slabs Happy Hour All Day Mondays Tuesdays Peppered Best Orange County HH OC

Yes, we do go through quite a bit of tuna every week but we also go through quite a bit of Salmon as well. We do have so many variations of Salmon, including Peppered Salmon, Cherry Salmon, and Truffled Salmon. So yeah, these slabs of salmon are just lying around, waiting for you to come on in. We can stick the whole slab on a bed of rice, if you'd like.

Ikura Quail Egg Uni

Ikura Uni Quail Egg Sushi Love Orange County OC Cypress Garden Grove

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!

Salmon Skin Salad - Sushi World Happy Hour

Coachella Recovery Package Happy Hour All Day Monday Tuesdays Salmon Skin Salad Yellowtail Sushi World

Happy Hour all day on Mondays and Tuesdays at Sushi World in Cypress! That makes us a pretty good Coachella Recovery Center for all those coming back from partying all weekend. We're also the best official start of every week in the OC! Why? Because you can get our awesome $4.5 Salmon Skin Salad along with our $2.99 sushi and $3.99 appetizers. Oh, and to wash it all down, we of course, have our $12 Sapporo pitchers which will really help you recover from life.

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.

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

Sushi World Bluefin Tuna

Bluefin Tuna Sashimi Raw Wasabi Sake Perfection Special Orange County Sushi World OC

We just can't get enough of Bluefin Tuna at Sushi World and we want to share it with you! Our killer Bluefin Tuna prices can't be beat anywhere! We get a whole Bluefin Tuna almost every month. If you're seeing this, then yes, we just got another one. Feel free to get the Tuna or the Toro. Toro is the fatty tuna that comes from the belly portion of the fish and it usually runs out quick. This has been on our Specials Board for quite some time and will probably go on for a while longer. It's actually become a permanent fixture. Swing on by soon while it's still at its freshest.

Get the Snowman Roll

Snowman Roll Shrimp Tempura Snow Crab Avocado Cucumber Soy Paper Sweet Sauce Sushi World Orange County OC Cypress

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.

Order Some Sushi To Go!

Baked Mussels Happy Hour All Day Tuesdays Appetizers Orange County Cypress Sushi World OC

One of our favorite appetizers is our baked mussels. It's so simple and oh so yummy. We take some mussels, top it with our special Japanese aioli, bake them, and then top them with some masago and green onions. They're always a great way to start a sushi session at Sushi World. Tell your neighbors! (But don't tell them about how you steal their Victoria Secret catalogs.)

Get a Cypress Roll From the Best Sushi Restaurant in Cypress!

Cypress Roll Shrimp Tempura Strawberry Roll Orange County OC Sushi World

We named our signature sushi roll after our home, Cypress. We love it here, especially where we are located, which is right next to Anaheim, Garden Grove, and Stanton. Our Cypress Roll features a shrimp tempura center and then slices of strawberries on top. There is no raw fish in it so it's safe for everyone! We love to accommodate everyone's tastebuds and we realize not everyone enjoys eating raw fish. So there's plenty on our menu for non-raw fish eaters. Come on in with a big group! We'll have something on the menu for everyone!

You could say that our sashimi sampler is the ultimate sampler of any kind because you will get only the best cuts of fish! Tuna, Red Snapper, Yellowtail, Albacore, and Salmon. You just can't go wrong when you order this. It is a very shareable dish but you can also eat it on your own. And, there's no rice so it's definitely a no carb situation.

White Dragon Roll! Albacore & Shrimp Tempura!

White Dragon Roll Albacore Shrimp Tempura Ponzu Orange County Sushi World

Do you like albacore? Do you like shrimp tempura? Oh boy, do we have a sushi roll for you. Get our White Dragon Roll. It'll blow your mind. Also comes with the standard cucumber, avocado, and rice. But, because it is albacore, we also have fried onions on top and it's served with ponzu sauce. Both complement albacore very well. If you haven't tried it and would like to try something new that'll surely satisfy your taste buds, give this a try! Happy Hour from 2pm to 5pm everyday, including the weekends.

Anaheim Chili Tempura Roll

Anaheim Chili Tempura Roll Smoked Salmon Avocado Rice Sweet Sauce Sushi World Orange County OC

What a beautiful winter we're having here in Orange County! Chilly at night but nice and sunny during the day. Typical fall in Southern California. 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!

Ikura Salmon Roe Quail Egg Sushi World Orange County OC Cypress

Another week in the OC and it's beautiful out, as usual. After you take advantage of being outside, come on in Sushi World where we'll take care of you and make your week even more perfect. Like this ikura, which is obviously salmon roe with a quail egg on top. Eggs with another egg. Don't forget, we also have happy hour all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and from 2pm till 5pm on Wednesdays through Fridays. While other sushi restaurants take a break during this time, we remain open and like to reward those who do come in at that time.

Green Tea Ice Cream. Inside Chocolate Cake. Inside Tempura. Fried.

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

Our Tempura Green Tea Ice Cream is pretty much the perfect dessert no matter how you look at it. It's got a cold center of delicious green tea ice cream. It's wrapped in a soft, not too sweet chocolate cake. It's battered with tempura and then quickly fried. All 3 textures are served to perfection with a light drizzle of a sweet syrup. Great to share or to hog up all by yourself. Don't worry. We won't judge. Yes, it's like the inception of Japanese desserts. Come on in and try it out today.

Green Tea Ice Cream

Green Tea Ice Cream Sushi World OC Orange County Dessert Whipped Cream Strawberry Slices

We have everything to complete a meal, including awesome desserts! This dessert is simplest of all but sometimes, all you need is a little Green Tea Ice Cream to finish off your meal. It's not always garnished the same but when we usually have these items in stock, we will garish it with slices of strawberries, whipped cream, and a mint leaf. Yes, you can eat all the garnishes, too. Green Tea. It's good for you.

Happy Friday! Time to Get Some Monkfish Liver!

Ankimo Monkfish Liver Happy Friday Orange County Sushi World OC

If you enjoy foie gras, then you should give our ankimo a try. It's made from monkfish liver and made in house. You should try it if you come by and visit us this weekend. This is the one item on our menu that the longer you leave it out, the better it tastes. But of course, don't leave it out too long. That would be ridiculous. Leaving it to about room temperature is probably optimal. It's very rich and packed with flavor.

Sushi Love on a Plate

Orange County Sushi Chef Love Plate Cherry Salmon Albacore OC Sushi World

We love our Sushi Chefs! They are our front line and they always do their best to represent us well. We believe it is their dedication to always serve you love on a plate that has gotten us to where we are today. And we are grateful. Always, always feel free to sit at the sushi bar whenever it is available and get to know our sushi chefs. They're a great bunch and if you have a rapport with them, they'll surely be able to customize your sushi love on a plate to your preferences. That's always a good thing.

Sushi World Tapas

Japanese Tapas Tako Octopus Jumbo Scallops Hotategai Red Snapper Tai Cherry Salmon Sushi World Orange County OC

We love Spanish Tapas and we realize why. Essentially, sushi is much like the Japanese version of the Spanish Tapas: small, tasty bites eaten with an alcoholic beverage. Every time you take a seat at our sushi bar, it's much like getting Tapas. You pick whatever you wish, like the lineup in the picture of Tako (Octopus), Hotategai (Jumbo Scallops), Tai (Red Snapper), and Cherry Salmon. And then, of course, be sure to have some beer or sake to help wash it all down and clean your palette for the next tasty morsel. Yep, we've got Tapas.
