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.

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

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.
