Ankimo (Monkfish Liver)

Ankimo Monkfish Liver Gelatin Sesame Seeds Made In House Excellent Appetizer Orange County OC Sushi World

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.

Smoked Albacore Hand Rolls

Smoked Albacore Hand Roll Yummy Cone Sushi Orange County OC

We didn't want to like this roll but we do. In fact, we love this hand roll. Smoked Albacore Hand Rolls are absolutely delicious. We always thought smoked albacore is kinda like cheating. We love presenting to our customers raw fishes in unique styles and presentations. Smoked Albacore was just too easy. But we ended up putting it on the menu because our customers love it. And now, we love it as well. As pure sushi enthusiasts, this is one of our delightfully delicious guilty pleasures.

Well, that's our secret. All you have to concern yourself with is eating it all cause you really can't pack it up to go.

Albacore Carpaccio Ponzu Sauce Garlic Chips Fried Arugula Cypress Orange County OC Sushi World

An absolute favorite amongst our regulars is our Albacore Carpaccio. While the delicious slices of albacore are hidden underneath an avalanche of fried arugula, it's also accented with a ponzu sauce and garlic chips. It has a little bit of everything that makes it great as an appetizer or as a main dish during your meal. The fried arugula has a nice crispy crunch to it but couple it with the tenderness of the albacore will make it every bite an absolute joy in your mouth.

Hand Rolls

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.

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

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.

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.
