Snowman Roll - Good Year Round

Snowman Roll Sweet Sauce Soy Paper Snow Crab Shrimp Tempura Sushi Roll Orange County OC Sushi World

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.

Happy Year of the Monkey!

Lunar New Year Monkey Orange County OC Sushi World Sake Best Happy Hour

Remember to drink responsibly!

Iichiko Japanese Shochu

Iichiko Japanese Shochu Drink Drank Crunk Orange County OC Sushi World Cypress

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.

Sunomono Cucumber Salad

Sunomono Cucumber Salad Appetizers Happy Hour All Day Cypress Orange County OC Sushi World

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.

Volcano Roll Erupting Near You

Volcano Roll Spicy Tuna Roll Rock Shrimp Tempura Basil Oil Orange County OC Sushi World

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.

Talented Sushi Chefs!

Salmon Skin Salad on the Happy Hour Menu

Salmon Skin Salad Happy Hour Orange County OC Sushi World Best Cypress

Our Salmon Skin Salad comes with a nice combination of mixed greens along with strips of crispy salmon skin and then dressed with a ponzu based dressing.

It's kinda nice to be able to hit up Target whenever you're out of cereal, lotion, or tampons. It's even nicer to be able to grab some sushi anytime you want when you're making a Target run. And unlike most Japanese restaurants, we're open between lunch and dinner. In fact, it's Happy Hour everyday from 2pm till 5pm.

Atlantic Dragon Roll? What About a Pacific Dragon Roll?

Atlantic Dragon Roll Peppered Salmon Serrano Pepper Ponzu Cypress Orange County OC Sushi World

Yep, we have an Atlantic Dragon Roll but not Pacific Dragon Roll. Seems kinda odd, considering we're right next to the Pacific. Do dragons not exist in the Pacific? Must be so. Anyway, our Atlantic Dragon Roll features a center of salmon, cucumber, and avocado. It's topped with peppered salmon, a slice of serrano pepper, red onions, and then lightly dressed with a ponzu sauce. If you like salmon, this is the roll for you. You get it on the inside and out! Come on in and try out all of our dragon rolls!

Ikura Goodness

Ikura Orange County OC Cypress Green Onions Ponzu Lemon Salmon Roe Sushi World

We don't hold back when we give you a serving of Ikura. That's how much we love it and that's how much we know you'll love it. For those that don't know, Ikura is salmon roe. It has a very distinct taste, like a nice sharp salty flavor. The best part is when they burst in your mouth as you're eating them. They go well with a lot of other sushi dishes but we often get them as is because they're just as enjoyable on their own. Get a few orders today to see what we're talking about. It'll soon become one of your sushi favorites.

There are plenty other things in your life that you should worry about. Like your New Year's resolutions.
