Happy Mother's Day!

Mother's Day Happy Hour All Day Sushi World OC Orange County Peppered Salmon Yellowtail

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.

¡Feliz Día de las Madres!

Feliz dia de las madres happy mexican mothers day three amigos roll Spicy Scallops Tuna Albacore Orange County OC 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)

May the 4th Piece of Sushi Be With You

May the 4th Fourth Piece of Sushi Be With You Star Wars Holiday Sushi Party Platter

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. :-)

Sushi Burrito

Sushi Burrito Snow Crab Mix No Rice Tuna Salmon Albacore Masago Red Onions

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.

Kubota Suiju

Kubota Suiju Daiginjo Namazake Nama Unpasteurized Sake Orange County Sushi World OC

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.

Fried Aji -Sushi World

Fried Aji Japanese Mackerel Ponzu Sauce Appetizer Best Happy Hour Orange County OC Sushi World

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.

White Sushi Matters - Sake Tasting

White Sushi Matters Red Snapper Yellowtail Albacore Belly Jumbo Scallop Orange County OC

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!

Orion Beer - Sushi World

Orion Japanese Beer on Tap Sushi World Orange County OC Restaurant

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.

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

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.

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?

Live Amaebi - Sweet Shrimp

Amaebi Live Sweet Shrimp Sushi World Cypress Orange County OC
