Tako Wasa - Sushi World

Tako Wasa Wasabi Oil Pickled New Version Cooked Octopus Sushi World OC Orange County

We, at Sushi World, are always trying new things, especially when it comes to improving on some old, traditional favorites. Normally, Tako Wasa is made with raw octopus but we have recently switched it to cooked octopus. This makes a huge difference as raw octopus is very bland and slimy and most importantly, hard to pick up with some chopsticks. So the pictured is the new version, with cooked octopus, pickled wasabi, and wasabi oil. It's a great starter, especially with some beer and/or sake. Of course, the traditional Tako Wasa is still available upon request.

Sushi World in OC Weekly

Three Amigos Roll Orange County Sushi Rolls Creative OC Weekly

Yay! Sushi World got to be a part of OC Weekly's 2018 Eat + Drink Social Edition! If you want to see it for yourself, click here and go to page 36. You'll get to see our Three Amigos Roll, all dolled up. Yeah, because normally, we don't serve any of our dishes with a flower in it. That would be a waste. We're more concerned with giving you great tasting food rather than great looking food, although we do try our best to make our food as presentable as possible. :-)

Green Tea Creme Brulee

While Sushi World is all about our sushi, sake, and chefs, we still make sure you have options when it comes time for dessert.

If you're in the mood for Oyster Shooters, swing on by! Our sushi chefs love to serve them up to you. Sometimes, they'll use shot glasses. Other times, they'll use a wine glass. We take a freshly shucked oyster, throw it in a glass with ponzu, masago, sake, green onions, and a few other secret ingredients. And if you'd like, you can always squeeze some more lemon juice and/or add some tabasco to kick it up another level of heat and flavor.

Smoked Salmon Collar

Smoked Salmon Collar Buttery Good Sushi Grade Orange County OC

A very common item on our specials board is our Smoked Salmon Collar. The meat around the collar of the salmon is especially buttery and delicious already. And searing the salmon collars were good but smoking them adds a whole other level of flavor and texture that is absolutely out of this world. The other nice thing about this item is that anyone, even non-sushi lovers, can enjoy this. It is fully cooked and comes with rice, salad, and some ponzu sauce. We always do the smoking ourselves so you know it's fresh. Try it out on your next visit. You won't regret it.

New Wall Art

Japanese Koi Mural Wall Art Local Artist Restaurant Decor Interior Design

We have been contemplating a restaurant makeover for quite some time now. We've finally taken the first step by wiping down our big wall. It previously had a few hand-drawn cherry blossoms and posters of our food. We've hired a local artist who is one of our regulars to do a mural of Japanese Koi fishes. It's coming out quite nicely and will be done shortly. Please be sure to swing on by soon to check out the progress and let us know what you think. After the wall, what should we do next? Maybe redo the tatami room?

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 $2.99 for 2 pieces. Also included in the $2.99 Happy Hour sushi is salmon, peppered salmon, albacore, escolar, shrimp, and natto.

KFC: Tempura Albacore w/ Garlic Ponzu

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

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. Also take advantage of our $2.50 sake, $3.50 appetizers, and $10 Sapporo pitchers. Yeah, it's easy to lose a whole day here with those prices.
