Sushi World Lineup w/ Uni

Uni Sushi Lineup Jumbo Scallop Red Snapper Mackerel Salmon Orange County Sushi World OC

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.

Fried Baby Octopus

Fried Baby Octopus Orange County Japanese Sushi Restaurant OC Cypress

Iitako Karaage! It's such a simple appetizer that we love! Fried Baby Octopuses (or octopi, octopodes, all are acceptable!). We started this appetizer out on our Specials Board but it quickly became a very popular item so now it's officially on our menu. It's simply some baby octopi lightly battered and then fried to perfection. It's great to much on between all the sushi you'll be eating at Orange County's best sushi bar! And if you have a knack for Octopus, you can also get Tako in either nigiri or sashimi and also our Tako Wasa in both raw and cooked versions.

Jellyfish Salad

Orange County Sushi Jellyfish Salad Appetizer Cypress Anaheim OC Fresh

Don't be jelly of all of our appetizers! We have many traditional appetizers but we also have a few that we have concocted from various items from the sea, like this here Jellyfish Salad. It has a very unique taste and texture so if you're feeling adventurous, give it a try! It's good to mix it up every now and then with something completely different. We definitely enjoy this appetizer with some beer and/or sake. We call it a salad but it's hardly a salad in terms of greens.

Masago vs Ikura

Masago vs Ikura Roe Salmon Sushi World Orange County OC Pop in Your Mouth

We like to drop a little sushi knowledge every now and then because we feel it's necessary so that you know what you're eating and you get what you want. We have often received questions about the difference between these two and here it is. They are both roes, or the eggs of fish. Masago, is much smaller and it makes sense, because they come from small fish. Ikura is generally Salmon roe, because they are a bigger fish and therefore, produce bigger eggs. Because Masago is much smaller, it's kinda crunchy when you bite into them.

¡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
