We couldn't resist posting this picture of one of our amazing sushi chefs behind this wall of sakes. Makes it feel like they're behind a wall of sakes. Well, it's mid-week and we're not sure about everyone else but we are definitely in the mood for a drink. We're also thinking about doing another sake tasting soon so be on the lookout for that. This time, we're thinking about doing a sushi and sake combo. Let us know if anyone has any particular requests for a sake tasting.

If you'd like to help the OC Invaders, please stop on by.
It's going to be a pretty awesome debate tonight and we can't wait to watch it at Sushi World. This is how we would watch it, with rows of sake and delicious sushi. Anytime either candidate says something we like, we eat a piece of sushi. If either one of them says something we don't like, we take a shot of sake. And it's really nice today because It's also Happy Hour all day on Mondays (and Tuesdays) when sushi is only $2.50, appetizers are only $3.50, sake is only $2.50, and Sapporo pitchers are only $10. Load up on sushi and sake and watch the debate. Sounds like a perfect Monday.
Sometimes, you need something nice and chocolatey after eating all that sushi and drinking all that sake. Luckily for you, we have a number chocolate desserts on hand and ready for you after any meal with us. The pictured Chocolate Pyramid features a hard, chocolate exterior with a smooth and creamy chocolate filling. Comes lightly dusted with powdered sugar, a sliced strawberry, and whipped cream. Other chocolate desserts include Chocolate Cheesecake, Chocolate Ganache, Chocolate Fudge Cake, and Chocolate Cheesecake. Great for birthdays or any type of celebration!
To help everyone get over the dreaded Wednesday hump day, we have live DJs come and spin for us every 3rd Wednesday of the month. Called, "b.eats," enjoy the free entertainment as you dine on sushi and sake from 6pm till 9pm. The smooth sounds is provided by DJ Ryan Live, DJ Ayebert, and DJ A1. If you don't know who they are, come and find out. Dinner and a show. What more can you ask for on a Wednesday night?
In light of all the customers trying to capture pokemons at the restaurant, here's a little reminder that we do have a very delicious Hawaiian Tuna Poké available. Come on in and catch them all! It features fresh tuna, albacore, avocado, gobo, marinated seaweed, and a delicious poké dressing. It's great to eat at the start, in the middle, or even at the end of a meal with us. It's that good! And yes, you are more than welcome to still come on in and catch all the pokemons that you want in the restaurant. Just remember to eat while you're here.
If Poland wins their Euro game versus Portugal on Thursday, EVERYONE in the restaurant will receive either a free beer or dessert on the house! The game starts at noon so be sure to stop by on Thursday and catch the game with us. Poland is favored so the likelihood of a free beer or dessert is very high. If you like soccer (or football), come on by and watch the game with us. If you're new to sushi, our sushi chefs will gladly walk you through it. And in case you're wondering why we're rooting for Poland, our manager happens to be Polish :-)
That's right. Pops deserves it. He's put up with all your crap all this time. It's time to give him something good.

If you have a favorite anime movie you'd like us to show and you're most definitely coming, please let us know! Come on out, you freaks!
No more BS Sundays (Beer & Sushi). To help celebrate Easter Sunday, we're starting S&M Sundays! That's right. Sushi & Mimosas. Every 21+ customer gets a free mimosa from noon till 5pm not only on this coming Easter Sunday but every Sunday from now on. Or, until, we get tired of doing it. You can still have beer but let's try to class it up a bit on Sundays. Plus, from 2pm till 5pm everyday including the weekends, it's Happy Hour! $2.50 sushi, $3.50 appetizers, $2.50 sake, and $10 Sapporo pitchers. That's, of course, after you finish your free mimosa.
We have a lot of awesome items on our Happy Hour menu but definitively one of the most popular and most heralded items is our Yellowtail sushi. It's only $2.50 for 2 pieces during Happy Hour, which is everyday from 2pm to 5pm and then all day on Mondays and Tuesdays. Also available for $2.50 during Happy Hour is our escolar, salmon, peppered salmon, shrimp, masago, albacore, and natto.

Every 3rd Wednesday, Sushi World hosts another edition of b.eats with Union Station Radio. DJ Ryan Live, DJ Ayebert, and DJ A1 will all be in the mix from 6pm to 9pm. Come on out and join us for some sushi, sake and sounds! Dinner and a show all rolled up into one, like a sushi roll. Or if you're not in the mood for a sushi roll, you can always get the pictured Ikura with a quail egg. Simple, elegant, and delicious. Oh, and don't forget about the sake and Sapporo beer. Music sounds better and sushi tastes better with both!
The main feature of our restaurant truly is our sushi bar. While most of us are accustomed to sitting at a regular table at most other restaurants, we truly want to encourage you to take a seat at our sushi bar any chance you get. You'll get personalized service plus you can build a rapport with our awesomely talented sushi chefs. The more they get to know what you like, the more they'll be able to make recommendations to you in the future. Plus, you'll probably always get your food faster than anyone else in the restaurant.
Now that we're done with our Sake Tasting event (it was awesome, by the way), we just wanted everyone to know that we have Happy Hour on the weekends, too! You don't have to wait till Mondays or Tuesdays. Just come on in from 2pm till 5pm on all other days (including the weekends!) and you get $2.50 sushi, $2.50 sake, $3.50 appetizers, and $10 Sapporo pitchers. There's really no better deal out there in Orange County and you get to enjoy it on the weekends. It's not like you have anything to do on the weekends anyway. Might as well enjoy it with sushi and sake.
Our Sake Tasting event is this Thursday, March 3rd! We're excited and hope that you are, too! We have 3 awesome killer deals for our Sake Tasting. The first is 12 various sakes for only $25. if 12 different sakes are too much for you, you can always choose our 2 other deals. 6 basic sakes for only $10 or 6 premium sakes for $20. It really depends on your sake expertise as well as how much you can take. All tastes are 1 ounce shots. We encourage everyone to drink responsibly and bring a designated driver if possible. If not, please Uber.
We're still ironing out the details for this event but we do have a date already in mind. Thursday, March 3, 2016, Sushi World will be hosting our first (of hopefully many) Sake Tasting night! We will have over 12 different sakes to taste and to choose from. There will be a specially priced tasters fee for all the different sakes as well as 3 specially priced flights of sakes categorized according to type. If you find a bottle of sake you especially enjoy, you can purchase it for 20% off the regular price that day, too. So mark your calendars!
It's Fish Fridays! It is lent so it is the perfect day to come on in for some fresh sushi! We have all the usual line ups as well as many different specials that change all the time. You have to come in to see what they are. In the meantime, rest assured that we will always have a fresh inventory of the usual suspects, such as the ones pictured. Seared escolar, albacore, salmon, and red snapper. Looks delicious doesn't it? Well, it tastes even better than it looks. Have a great weekend everyone!
We love it when you get Monday off because you also get to come in and enjoy Happy Hour all day on Mondays! It's also all day on Tuesdays and on all other days from 2pm till 5pm, even on the weekends! So you see. It's kinda like a holiday everyday for us. You get to enjoy $3.50 appetizers, like the pictured Baked Mussels, and also $2.50 sushi, $2.50 sake, and $10 Sapporo pitchers. Still, the best Happy Hour deal in all of Orange County. You have the day off. Come on in and find out for yourself!
Thought we were in the middle of winter? Why is it in the 80s? Only in Southern California. In any case, we'd like to remind you a little bit about winter with our Snowman Roll. There's nothing cold or wintery about it, though. It's called the Snowman Roll because it's has a snow crab mix in the middle of it. Also has a shrimp tempura in the middle with a soy paper on the outside. It's actually good any time of the year and with any type of sushi eater, especially sushi virgins who still can't eat raw fish. Because there isn't any in this roll.
It's the year of the Fire Monkey! What does that mean? Let's drink! We're open so come on in and celebrate the Lunar New Year with us! It's also Happy Hour all day Mondays and Tuesdays so take advantage of our $2.50 sushi, $2.50 sake, $3.50 appetizers, and $10 Sapporo pitchers. Our sushi chefs would love to have you come in and celebrate with them. Get them drunk, too! It's the best way to bring in the new year. When everyone is drinking and happy! Remember to drink responsibly!
We love Iichiko and you should, too! Just to clarify, it's not a sake or a soju, as many might mistaken. It's a Japanese shochu, which is traditionally distilled from sweet potato, barley, rice, and other ingredients. Sake is fermented and is typically not as high in alcohol content. So be careful with Iichiko! It will sneak up on you. It's also considered a higher quality than soju, which is much more popular and mass produced. Drink your Iichiko with a little bit of tea, preferably oolong tea or a soda water and some lemon juice.
We haven't posted about this ever and we should. It's one of our favorite appetizers to get no matter what. It's only $3.50 all the time but it's quite popular on our Happy Hour menu, which features over 10 other appetizers that are priced at $3.50. Also on our Happy Hour menu is $2.50 sushi, $2.50 sake, and $10 Sapporo pitchers. It's a great deal all around and it's available all day Mondays & Tuesdays and on all other days from 2pm till 5pm. We don't take afternoon breaks.
What's in our Volcano Roll? It's a spicy tuna roll topped with tempura rock shrimp and dressed with a basil oil. We don't use basil oil very often but we find that it complements the tempura rock shrimp very well. This is definitely not your typical basic sushi roll. It's got some different flavors and textures going that are not found in traditional sushi rolls. Why is it called a Volcano Roll? Because it's erupting with flavors and they all kinda look like a group of volcano islands sushi bites. Yeah, that's the best description for them. Volcano islands sushi bites.
