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.
Currently on the Sushi World Specials Board: Live Uni! Yes, this is a rarity for us so if you love Uni like we do, you better come in soon to experience this for yourself. Our sushi chefs will prepare them any way you like, as sushi, sashimi, or you can even eat it straight out of the shell. If the response is great, we'll be sure to try our best to get live sea urchin more frequently. It's all a matter of you, our customers. If you love this type of sushi, please swing on by and show your support for more of these types of items on our menu.
You should always check the Specials Board at Sushi World, especially if you're looking for something new. If you enjoy Tempura Shrimp and Tempura Veggies, you should really try out our Snow Crab Tempura. It's pretty much exactly how it sounds. 10 pieces of Snow Crab leg meat battered and fried in tempura. If an item on our Specials Board is popular enough, we tend to add it to our regular menu. So it's up to you. Let us know when one of our Specials Board item really hits the spot for you.
Negi Hama is a sushi roll that consists of yellowtail and green onions. It's a basic sushi roll that will always be around. It's only $4.5 on our happy hour menu, which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on Wednesdays through Fridays from 2pm till 5pm. There are so many items on our happy hour menu, it's ridiculous.

We honor and respect all of the women and men out there who have served and/or are serving in our military, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect this great nation of ours. We truly salute you as you deserve more than just this day to honor you. Being that Memorial Day is on a Monday, we will have Happy Hour all day where you get to enjoy $2.99 sushi, $3.99 appetizers, $12 Sapporo pitchers, and quite a few other specially priced items.

Why not make it a great weekend and come on in and make it a sushi weekend! We know how to treat you right. Just sit on down at our sushi bar and one of our awesome sushi chefs will surely take care of whatever you might need. If you're adventurous, let them decide for you. If you're particular, tell them what you like and they'll surely do their best to make you happy. And in case you can't come by over the weekend, swing on by for Happy Hour which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Being a sushi restaurant, not all of our fish or food is served raw. We also have a full kitchen behind our sushi bar ready to serve up a number of various items for patrons looking for something other than sushi, like Hamachi Kama (Yellowtail Collar), Salmon Colllar, Salmon Teriyaki, Chicken Katsu, and the pictured, Miso Marinated Black Cod. They can come a la carte (with rice), or as a combo with Miso Soup, Rice, House Salad, and 5 pieces of Mixed Tempura. It's a great option, especially when you come with a big group where someone is not yet comfortable with sushi.
It took us a while to figure out what to do for Mother's Day since it's so hard to please mom. But we thought about it and all moms don't like it when you spend too much on her so we decided that for Mother's Day, we will have Happy Hour all day. That way, Mom won't feel so bad about you spending on her. You get to take advantage of our $2.99 sushi (for 2 pieces!), $3.99 appetizers, $12 Sapporo pitchers, and $4-$4.5 various rolls and other items. Make your momma happy. Swing on by and have a great time with her at Sushi World.
May 10th is always Mexican Mother's Day and we just wanted to make a quick shout out to all the hard working Mexican mothers out there. We love you and admire everything that you do everyday to make the familia run 24/7. The only item on our menu that is remotely related would be our Three Amigos Roll, which breaks down to your mom, mamá, y madre! Those truly are your three amigos for life! (the actual three amigos in our roll are spicy scallops, tuna, and albacore)
We, at Sushi World, enjoy putting our little twist on everything, even on this nerdy little holiday. May the 4th Be With You should really be May the 4th Piece of Sushi Be With You. That's because we'll eat the first 3 pieces of sushi. You can have the 4th. Hehe. So swing on by or order a party platter like the one pictured. You figure out who gets how many. :-)
Our sushi chefs are always coming up with new items so it's imperative that you always check our specials board for what they might create this week. Our Sushi Burrito is our latest attempt to try something new. It features an assortment of fish (tuna, salmon, albacore), avocado, masago, red onions, and snow crab mix all wrapped up in a soy paper. Yep. No rice is involved and it's quite tasty and easy to eat. Just pick it up and put it in your mouth. You can dip it if you'd like but trust us when we say there's enough flavor in this burrito that you don't need to dip it.
If you partook in last week's Sushi & Sake Tasting, you would have noticed our newest addition to our sake menu, Kubota Suiju Daiginjo Nama. Yeah, that's a mouth full. If you like unpasteurized sakes (nama), then you should really try this sake out. It's rare to have a Daiginjo as a Nama. This one is clear with an elegant, fruity aroma Like all unpasteurized sakes, it is served chilled. A bottle of this will regularly be $125. But for the rest of April 2018, we will offer it at only $75. We want you to really see how great this tastes with our sushi.
During our Happy Hour, you can get 2 pieces of Fried Aji for $3.99. Fried Aji is a Japanese Mackerel, breaded and fried to perfection. We serve it with a side of ponzu sauce if you'd like to dip it. What's nice about our Fried Aji is that they come with a little handle, their tails! You can hold on to them and just take a bite. There are no bones so you don't have to worry about that. This items along with 7 other appetizers are all on our Happy Hour menu for $3.99 which is all day on Mondays & Tuesdays and on all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm.
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.
Sushi World will hold this year's Sushi & Sake Tasting on Wednesday, April 18th.

Enjoy $3.99 sushi, including the pictured salmon, but you can also get peppered salmon, escolar, albacore, yellowtail, shrimp, and natto.

Might as well start the week off right by coming by and visiting us!
Just joking people. All sushi matters. But we really do love these in particular. They just happen to be white. It's not our fault. They just happen to be exceptionally delicious. From left to right, they are Red Snapper, Yellowtail Belly, Albacore Belly, and Jumbo Scallop. We are working on the details of our annual sake tasting right now as we hope to have some sake companies come out to represent themselves. Tentatively, it will be on Wednesday, April 18th. Stay tuned as we reveal more details! And remember, white sushi matters!
Sushi World is proud to announce our newest family member: Orion Japanese beer on tap! Yay! So in addition to our Sapporo, we now have Orion, which most definitely has a different taste, more like European beers. Swing on by soon and get a draft or two and you'll see what we mean. When the tap was installed, they also put on a feature that produces very foamy head so feel free to request more head, if that's your preference.
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's Happy Hour features several rolls like the pictured Spicy Tuna Roll. It goes for $3.99 during our HH which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on Wednesdays through Fridays fro 2pm till 5pm. Also for $3.99 are our Spicy Tuna Rice Cakes, California Roll, Salmon Avocado Roll, and 8 different appetizers. We also have $2.99 sushi, $12 Sapporo pitchers, and select $4.50 various items which include a Salmon Skin Salad, Salmon Skin Hand Roll, Smoked Albacore Hand Roll, Tekka Maki, Salmon Skin Roll, and Negi Hama.
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
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. :-)
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.
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 just acquired 2 whole Bluefin Tunas and are ready to share them both with you. 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. Be sure to swing by and take advantage of it soon before we realize this is way too good of a deal to be offering.
Sushi World's Happy Hour, the best in all of Orange County, features an array of appetizers all for only $3.99 each, which includes the pictured Shishito Peppers topped with Bonito Flakes. Now, if you haven't had it, you must! It's not spicy or hot, as you might think. It's just a pepper that tastes great! And, it's only $3.99 during our Happy Hour, which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm. Also enjoy $2.99 sushi, and $12 Sapporo pitchers.
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.
Yay! It's finally raining and gonna rain some more. And we know how you get when it starts raining. You want to stay in. While we prefer that you come in to dine with us, we understand that under some circumstances (like rain and kids), you'd prefer to stay at home and eat. Well, don't sweat it. We got you covered. Order anything on our menu (except for alcohol) and we'll pack it up to-go for you. Just give us a call and we'll prepare whatever you wish and all you have to do is find someone to go pick it up for you. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal. Now get to calling!
