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.

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.
If you're on the run and gotta go, get our Cheetah Roll to go! It features a Tempura Philadelphia Roll (Salmon & Cream Cheese) topped with spicy Cheetos! Even though we prefer that you come in and dine with us, we understand that times are busy so we can pack any of our sushi rolls (and pretty much anything else on our menu) to go.
Swing on by soon and try out our Dragon Roll! It features a Shrimp Tempura center and it's topped with Unagi (Baked Eel), and Avocado. 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. If that doesn't work, don't bring them next time so you can enjoy your sushi in peace.

There is no where else in Orange County where you can get a quality beer for that price! $12 for a pitcher of Sapporo all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm. Why? Because we love to drink when we eat sushi, especially good sushi! Enjoy our beer but also enjoy our $2.99 sushi, and $3.99 appetizers, which are also available during our absolutely awesome Happy Hour. Now, you have no excuse for not coming by for the best deal in all of Orange County!
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.
We have a tank of live sweet shrimp always ready for our special customers who enjoy amaebi. We understand that it's not for everyone but we do strongly suggest you try it at least once in your lifetime. We use the body of the live sweet shrimp and make it into a nigiri sushi or sashimi (your choice!) that is absolutely delicious. And then, we take the heads, lightly batter them, and then deep fry them for you. It's like eating sweet shrimp potato chips. So you have the two contrasting textures: the softness of the shrimp's body and the crunchiness of the heads.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Yikes it's hot! Come on in for some free a/c and our Happy Hour all day on Mondays and Tuesdays where you can enjoy our $2.99 sushi which includes the pictured Yellowtail. For $2.99, you get 2 pieces of sushi so that breaks it down to $1.50 per piece of sushi. Also during our Happy Hour is $3.99 appetizers with 8 to choose from, $4-$4.50 various rolls and other items, and $12 Sapporo pitchers. Orange County's best Happy Hour is also from Wednesdays through Fridays from 2pm till 5pm. You know, that time when all other sushi restaurants close to take a break.
We admit it. We need help. 140 pounds of Bluefin Tuna is a bit much. Swing on by sushi world soon and help us get rid of it all. We have Bluefin Tuna as well as Bluefin Toro. You can get either one as sushi or sashimi, though we do not nearly have as much toro as tuna for obvious reasons. (Toro is the fatty belly and there's only so much of that). We're not sure when we'll run out but if we had to guess, we highly recommend you come by this weekend before it's all gone.
Want a little salad with your sushi instead of rice? Get our Sashimi Salad! It consists of a bed of mixed greens, cucumber, avocado, and gobo and is topped with generous various sashimi slices like Albacore, Tuna, Salmon, and Yellowtail. And we dress it all up (since it is a salad) with our very own house made Hawaiian Poke Dressing. On the very top, we have crispy fried onions and seaweed strips. Yes, there's a lot going on here but you deserve the ultimate salad and this might just be it.
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?
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.
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.
We have quite an extensive menu and an item that has been humbly on there forever is our Agedashi Tofu. It's a very simple Japanese dish consisting of lightly battered and fried tofu cubes in a dashi sauce. A little green onion on top and that's about it. Very simple yet tasty. It's a great appetizer to get in between all that sushi you're eating while at Sushi World. Next time you swing by, be sure to look at our whole menu to see if there might be something else you enjoy. If not, always stick to your favorites. And also always check our Specials Board.
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.
Summer is here in the OC. If you're like most carb-conscious people in Orange County, you're looking to cut down on the carbs so that you can have that beach/pool party body. Our Jalapeno Yellowtail is precisely what you're looking for. It's essentially carb-free and is flavorful as heck. It's light, tasty, and the women love it. If she doesn't like it, then maybe your mom was right and she's not the one. Besides, once you lose those extra pounds, you'll surely find something better.
If you love salmon, you're going to really love Sushi World's Atlantic Dragon Roll. It's center consists of salmon and it's topped with a peppered salmon. Salmon overload? We think not. The center also has the traditional sushi center of avocado and cucumber and then the whole roll is also topped with shredded red onions and a slice of serrano pepper on each piece of sushi. And then, it's lightly dressed with a ponzu sauce. So simple, yet oh so deliciously filling and appetizing.
Currently on the Sushi World Specials Board: Truffle Escolar. Yes, it's a very unimaginative name but it does the job. Features sashimi slices of buttery Escolar dressed in Truffle Oil and garnished with orange slices. Looks fresh and inviting and tastes even better than it looks. We know it's summertime so y'all are looking for that summer bod. Well, this no carb dish should definitely be an option for you as it's packed with flavor and none of the guilt.
It's the summer! Our Hawaiian Tuna Poke is a perfect, healthy serving of yumminess consisting of tuna, albacore, avocado, gobo, marinated seaweed, and an awesome poke dressing. Great to share or to eat all by your selfish self. No need to dip it anything. It is ready to go as is. It'a great starter, a middle appetizer, or even as a dessert. Your choice! Whatever you do decide, it's not a bad decision! Hope everyone has a wonderful, beautiful week ahead of them!
If you haven't tried our Salmon Carpaccio yet, you're missing out. Not only is it low carbs to help you keep your figure, it's delicious! Perfectly sliced salmon sashimi, topped with red onions, green onions, sesame seeds, and then dressed with a house combination of oils and sauces. It's become a favorite amongst our regulars. They tend to like dishes like this and our Jalapeno Yellowtail. They're simple dishes that are great to share or eat all up by yourself! Don't worry. We won't judge you.
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.
You want some sushi with your chicken teriyaki? No problem! Our Chicken Teriyaki Bento Box has the option of coming with either a basic sushi roll, 4 sushi pieces, or even pieces of sashimi! It's your choice. Pictured is our bento box option with 4 pieces of sushi: tuna, salmon, albacore, and shrimp. Chicken Teriyaki Bento Boxes also come with 2 pieces of Shrimp Tempura, 3 pieces of Vegetable Tempura, Miso Soup & Bowl of Rice. Now that's a lunch that will fill you up and pretty much put you in a food coma for the rest of the day.
Of course we have Oyster Shooters! We take a freshly shucked oyster, throw it in a shot glass with ponzu, masago, sake, green onions, and a few other secret ingredients. What's not to love about it? The hard part is finishing it all with big gulp. You really have to brace yourself before taking the whole shot, which we highly encourage you to do so that you can fully appreciate all the different flavors meshing with one another. It's also best to take it at our sushi bar.
