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 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

Green Tea Creme Brulee Hard Top Crack Strawberry Slices Orange County OC Sushi World

While Sushi World is all about our sushi, sake, and chefs, we still make sure you have options when it comes time for dessert. Our Green Tea Creme Brulee is definitely a different take on the classic Creme Brulee. It's got that Asian vibe thanks to the green tea. It's a great item to get for yourself or to share and it definitely won't feel heavy. Be sure to check out our extensive dessert menu as we have carefully crafted it to complement our general menu.

Sushi World Bluefin Tuna

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

Bluefin Tuna sushi is going for $5 and sashimi for $10. Bluefin Toro is $9 for sushi and $19 for sashimi. 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.

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.
