Cypress Roll - Strawberries & Shrimp Tempura

Cypress Roll Strawberries Shrimp Tempura Snow Crab Cucumber Avocado Sweet Sauce Orange County OC Sushi World

It's been a minute since we've posted about one of our sushi rolls. Let's get back on track with our signature roll, our Cypress Roll! It's center consists of shrimp tempura, cucumber, and avocado. It's topped with our snow crab mix, strawberries, and a sweet sauce. So, as you can tell, it has not raw fish in it so it's very sushi-virgin safe. Despite that, it is still very delicious and tasty. We wouldn't name it after the city we're in for nothing. It's been a minute. That's really a weird new expression these kids have come up with nowadays.

Beef Tataki - Happy Hour Item

Beef Tataki Orange County OC Happy Hour All Day Mondays Tuesdays Appetizers Sushi World

Just because it's not fish, don't disregard our Beef Tataki on the Happy Hour menu. It's an incredibly tasty item that we carefully make in-house. It is raw but you won't even notice it when you put it in your mouth. After it's been marinated, seared, and then aged, we carefully slice the beef into little medallions and then lightly dress them. An order is only $3.50 (along with 10+ other appetizers) during our Happy Hour, which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm.

Delicious Uni

Uni Sea Urchin Specials Board Close Up Sake Pairing Premium Sushi Bar Orange County OC

Yep, it's not for everyone. But for those who know how delicious Uni is, this close-up should make your mouth water. You can see the texture, which although looks like your tongue, it just melts in your mouth like butter. It's almost always on our specials board so just holler it out to our awesome sushi chefs and they'll whip up a few orders for you. It definitely goes well with one of our premium sakes. If you ever need help deciding on a sake pairing, don't hesitate to ask our servers or our chefs (if they're not too busy) for an appropriate sake that will best suit your liking.

Smoked Albacore Hand Roll

Smoked Albacore Hand Roll Happy Hour Best in Orange County OC Sushi World

A very popular item that's on our Happy Hour menu that nearly does not get enough attention is our Smoked Albacore Hand Roll. It's only $4.50 each during Orange County's best Happy Hour, which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm. This close-up picture should give you a pretty good view of what it consists of: plenty of smoked albacore, fried onions, cucumber, and some other secret goodies.

Hamachi Ribs

Hamachi Yellowtail Ribs Specialty Rare Sushi Chef Bar Sesame Seeds

Hamachi (Yellowtail) Ribs are not always available so you'll have to ask our chefs if they're in stock. And trust us. They're worth asking about, especially if you haven't tried them. Our chefs carefully carve out the ribs, sear them, and then lightly dress them with a little spice and a little sweetness. You can just pick up each rib and then suck the meat off the bone. It's definitely a different take on "ribs." Normally, this is a wasted portion of the fish but the Japanese are known for not wasting any part of the fish.

Yellowtail, Salmon, Albacore!

Yellowtail Salmon Albacore Peppered Sushi World OC Happy Hour Best in Orange County

Three staples that we almost always have in stock are our Yellowtail, Salmon, and Albacore. They're kinda the basics when it comes to nigiri sushi. Our Yellowtail comes from Japan, while our Salmon and Albacore are locally sourced. There are plenty of other items you'll have to come on in and try out. If anyone is interested in custom party platters or a group gathering, please feel free to contact us at sushiworldoc@gmail.com.

Fried Baby Crabs

Fried Baby Crabs Perfect Snack Appetizers like Fries Sushi World Orange County OC

We're not sure how long we'll have it, but currently on our Specials Board is Fried Baby Crabs. Yep, they're tiny and they're delicious. Just pop them in your mouth and eat them all up. It's just like eating fries, but way better. Always, always check our specials board when you come in for a visit. We love mixing things up and adding different things to the menu so there's always something new for you to try. Amaebi is still on the specials board so if you still haven't tried live sweet shrimp, you're definitely missing out.

Sushi & Sake Tasting

Orange County Sushi Sake Tasting Event Foodie Premium Sakes Sushi World OC

Orange County's Best Happy Hour Features Yellowtail

Orange County Best Happy Hour Yellowtail Albacore Garlic Edamame Sushi World

One of our most favorite sushi to eat is always yellowtail, especially when you can see the little blood line along the cut. It's conveniently featured during our Happy Hour, along with albacore, salmon, peppered salmon, natto, shrimp, and escolar. $2.99 for 2 pieces. And appetizers, like the pictured Bake Mussels and Spicy Garlic Edamame, go for only $3.99 an order. There are many different appetizers to choose from for only $3.99.

Hotategai - Scallops

Hotategai Scallops Raw Sushi Specials Board Orange County OC Sushi Bar

A very common item on our specials board is our Hotategai, better known as Jumbo Scallops. If you do come in and see it on there, be sure to order at least one serving. It's definitely a different texture and taste from regular fish sushi. If you are familiar with cooked Scallops, raw Hotategai has the same texture except that it might be a bit softer. And its flavor is very refreshing and feels more meaty than your typical raw fish sushi.

Peppered Salmon - Happy Hour All Day Mondays & Tuesdays

Peppered Salmon Happy Hour All Day Mondays Tuesdays Special Sushi World Best Deal

If you have yet to try our Peppered Salmon, you're truly missing out. And lucky for you, it's only $2.50 for 2 pieces during Happy Hour, which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm. Along with the Peppered Salmon, we also have escolar, albacore, masago, natto, salmon, and shrimp included in the Happy Hour menu, along with $3.50 appetizers, $2.50 sake, and $10 Sapporo pitchers. There's plenty of deliciousness to fill you up so no need to worry about that.

Uni Pasta Now on the Menu

Uni Pasta Rich Buttery Quail Egg Yolk Flavorful To Die For Sushi World Orange County OC

We enjoyed making this Uni Pasta so much for Valentine's Day that we decided to officially add it to the menu! Don't let this picture fool you. It's actually a very hefty serving that's as rich and flavorful as it looks. As long as there's a demand for it, we'll continue making it. So come on in and have a serving to see what you think. If you love uni, and we know that you do, you'll love this dish completely. It's definitely an entree so order some appetizers and sushi first. Otherwise, you might not have any more room for it. See y'all soon!

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.

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
