This is more than just a resolution. This should be a part of life. Everyone should eat more fish because it's good for you. Why do you think everyone is crazy for Omega-3s? Why pop the pills when you can get it naturally? Pictured here is a sashimi sampler with expertly sliced pieces of yellowtail, red snapper, tuna, salmon, and albacore. A nice variety of fishes full of essential nutrients and protein that is overall good for you and great for your health. On top of it all, it's delicious! What more can you ask for?
Welcome to the new year! Why not start the year off right and come on in for Happy Hour? It's all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and this year, New Year's Day happens to land on a Monday. So once y'all sober up, come on in (because we know you're not working) and 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!
For some who may need a little help finding us, we've drawn up this handy dandy map for you. It shows that we are near the major intersection of Katella and Knott and also near Target. 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.
A current special that can easily be added to our regular menu is Iitako Karaage, otherwise known as Fried Baby Octopus. There are three babies to an order and they're quite delicious, even for being babies. But don't think of it as eating babies. Think of it as eating delicious morsels of fried gifts from the sea. Yeah, think of it that way and you'll enjoy them as much as we do. Swing on by soon and always check our specials board first before ordering. You might be pleasantly surprised.
Just because you love sushi doesn't mean you have to go without dessert at Sushi World! We have quite the extensive dessert menu such as the pictured Baileys Chocolate Mousse. It's decadently rich and smooth and a great way to end a meal at Sushi World, especially if you have a sweet tooth. If chocolate mousse is not for you, we also have 11 other desserts to choose from. So swing on by for some sushi, sake, and desserts soon.
Due to popular demand, Sushi World now offers Christmas Gift Certificates! They're available in $25, $50, and $100 increments. We know how difficult it is to find the right present for everyone but this one surely will make things easier for you. You can come by for lunch or dinner and then purchase the gift certificates at the same time. You get dinner and your presents done in one shot. Wow, talk about efficiency.
By popular demand, Anthony Francisco will be back at Sushi World this Wednesday, December 13th with his live acoustic performance playing a mix of covers and originals with both island and r&b styles. Have some sushi and sake and sit back and let Anthony dazzle you with his smooth sounds. Perfect way to ease the stress. He will be playing from 6pm till 9pm. Come on out and support our local artists.
One of our favorite items to always get while at the sushi bar is Hamachi, or Yellowtail. It's also known as Japanese Amberjack, though we think that name's too long and that's why we don't usually use it. We always try to include a little bit of the bloodline in our Yellowtail so you can always tell it's the real thing. It also makes it tastier. Yellowtail is always on the Sushi World Happy Hour menu for $2.99 for 2 pieces. Also included in the $2.99 Happy Hour sushi is salmon, peppered salmon, albacore, escolar, shrimp, and natto.
An item that's been on our favorites menu for awhile now is our KFC! Aptly named, our KFC is tempura fried albacore with a garlic ponzu sauce and it tastes amazing, especially for those who still cannot eat raw fish. Okay, we'll say it. It tastes like chicken. Seriously. Get it and you'll see for yourself. We have a quite a few items on our menu for all levels of sushi so feel free to ask our personable sushi chefs for recommendations based upon your dietary habits. See y'all soon!
Peppered Salmon tastes like salmon that's been peppered. Does that answer your nagging question? Better yet, all you need to know is that it is super yummy and it's only $2.50 for 2 pieces during the best happy hour in all of Orange County! Happy Hour takes place all day on both Mondays and Tuesdays! We're open from 11:30am till 9pm so come early and stay the whole day. We don't mind. Also take advantage of our $2.50 sake, $3.50 appetizers, and $10 Sapporo pitchers. Yeah, it's easy to lose a whole day here with those prices.
For the week of Thanksgiving, we will have Happy Hour all day, every day. Well, except for Thursday. We'll be closed for Thanksgiving. But yeah, you get to enjoy $2.5 sushi, $3.5 appetizers, $2.5 sake, $10 Sapporo pitcher, and $3.5-$4 various rolls. So you can come in Wednesday before your family gathering, Black Friday while you're shopping, or even on Saturday or Sunday while friends and relatives are still in town. You get to experience Orange County's best Happy Hour. You have no excuse not to be come by this week.
Not all sushi is fish as is evident by this post about Ika, Squid. It definitely has a different texture as compared to traditional fish sushi. It's crunchier and we sear ours ever so lightly on the top to give it a little bit more taste and texture when you bite into it. Plus, it makes it easier to see, as you can tell from the photograph because it is very white. As is with almost everything else on our menu, you can get it as a sushi or as sashimi. Tastes similar to Conch, if you have ever had that. Almost always in stock.
If you're on the run and gotta go, get our Cheetah Roll to go! It features a Tempura Philadelphia Roll (Salmon & Cream Cheese) topped with spicy Cheetos! Even though we prefer that you come in and dine with us, we understand that times are busy so we can pack any of our sushi rolls (and pretty much anything else on our menu) to go.
This picture embodies a pretty perfect weekend to us: a big bottle of Kikusui sake and our sushi chef. That means we're going to drink and eat well and that pretty much means happiness all around. Swing on by this weekend to dine-in or take-out! Talk to our sushi chefs to find out what you like best and they'll make sure to accommodate all your requests as best as they can. And of course, getting a big bottle of sake isn't mandatory but it sure helps, especially if you do decide to drink with our chefs. :-)
A new item that we recently added to the Sushi Word Happy Hour menu is Baked Scallop! Cooked in butter and soy sauce, it's available as one of our 8 appetizers for $3.99 during our Happy Hour which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and from 2pm till 5pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. We do have the best Happy Hour around and we're always making changes to it so that you can try different items on our menu. We don't want you to get bored of us like you did with your last lover.
Unagi is fresh water eel baked in a sweet sauce so it's fully cooked. This is a great item to get for sushi virgins who are not quite ready for raw fish. You can get Unagi as regular nigiri sushi or even in a bowl for lunch, which we appropriately named, Unagi Bowl. It's also featured in the center of one of our most popular sushi rolls, our Caterpillar Roll. It's funny that we have never posted about this item before because it's such a common item that we forget to highlight it. Okay, on to the next sushi.
At Sushi World, we like to stick to the basics, like this here Red Snapper. It's a staple that most sushi lovers automatically order and never regret because of its delicate, sweet aroma. There's a lot of flack for other sushi restaurants that try to pass off Tilapia as Red Snapper but if you ever order it from us, you'll see that we always see a bit of skin on there so that you can tell from the pink markings that it really is red snapper. Stop on by and order a few today. We'd love to see ya.
We, at Sushi World, are very proud of the Los Angeles Dodgers for becoming the National League champions! Up next is the World Series where we're sure they'll take it all home. We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than with some of our awesome bluefin tuna, which is still on special: Bluefin Tuna sushi for $4 and sashimi for $9; Bluefin Toro is $8 for sushi and $18 for sashimi. This is an incredible offer that we just want to make sure sushi lovers (and especially Dodger fans) get to enjoy. Now, what should we offer when they win it all?
We don't stick our rice in everything. We have awesome dishes that are pretty much no carbs! Pictured is our Salmon Carpaccio and our super duper popular Jalapeno Yellowtail. Both are delicious and super satisfying, especially if you enjoy great quality sushi but don't want all the rice. We know that living in Southern California, we're all a bit carb-conscious so these two items most definitely fits our lifestyle here. Also, these are both great dishes to get on a date. Bonus!
Another common item on the Sushi World specials board is our Truffle Salmon and it's exactly what it sounds like. A delicious piece of buttery salmon lightly brushed with some truffle oil. Can you see how it's glistening in the light? And it tastes like butter, if that helps any more with your visualization. And of course, we recommend you sit at our sushi bar and interact with the awesome Sushi World sushi chefs. Tell them what you like and how you like it and they'll do their best to accommodate your taste buds. Let's get some sushi!
We have 8 different sushi items available for $2.99 an order (2 pieces an order!) during our Happy Hour all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and from 2pm till 5pm Wednesdays through Fridays. Albacore is often overlooked but it's a sushi staple that you should always get once in a while. Our sushi chefs usually brush it with some sauce so you don't even have to dip albacore in your soy sauce & wasabi dip. Just eat it as is. The other 7 items for $2.99 are salmon, peppered salmon, yellowtail, shrimp, escolar, masago, and natto. Also enjoy $3.99 appetizers, and $12 Sapporo pitchers.
At Sushi World, we love to use every part of the fish, especially the collars! There's so much meat on there and it's sooooo buttery, it's ridiculous. Hamachi Kama is Yellowtail Collar and we sear it and serve it with a mixed greens salad and some ponzu sauce. You can get some rice, too, but we love it as is. It's a great item to get but especially so if you have someone in your party who loves eating fish but is not quite ready to eat raw fish. It's a pretty popular item but it's only in limited quantities so be sure to order it the next time you roll through.
It's official. Apparently, there's been a bit too much carb consumption going on lately and the powers that be have designated certain carb-free zones all across Orange County. Luckily for you, our Sashimi Sampler is one of the first legitimately sanctioned Carb-Free Zones designated in the OC. If you feel that you have been over carbing as of late, please make sure you get to Sushi World as quickly as possible to order your Sashimi Sampler today. It'll be a great way to help you get that beach body ready for this summer.
At Sushi World, we like to stick to the basics some times, like this here Negi Hama. Negi Hama is simply a yellowtail sushi roll with green onions. Very simple. They're bite-sized and also on our Happy Hour menu, which is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on Wednesdays through Fridays from 2pm till 5pm. It's only $3.5 per order for 6 pieces and you can also enjoy $2.50 sushi, $3.50 appetizers, $2.50 sake, and $10 Sapporo pitchers.
Sushi World's awesome sushi chefs are always here to serve you! As you can tell from this photo, our sushi chefs are carefully trained and extremely attentive to details on every single dish we serve. We are nothing without our sushi chefs, our front-line, our direct connection with you, our customers. Our awesome sushi chefs (the best in Orange County!) are ready to serve you whatever your heart (or tummy) desires! We have all your sushi favorites and many, many unique and flavor-intense sushi rolls. Swing on by soon and take a seat at our sushi bar.
A classic sushi roll that is simple and always a great way to start a meal session with us, Tekka Maki, otherwise known as a tuna sushi roll, is on our happy hour menu for only $3.5. Our happy hour, which is the best in Orange County, is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm. Also on our happy hour menu is Negi Hama (Yellowtail sushi roll with green onions) for $3.5, sushi for $2.5, appetizers for $3.5, sake for $2.5, and Sapporo pitchers for only $10. You cannot find a better deal than that in all of Orange County.
After all that sushi, you got room for dessert? Of course you do! Even if you have to make room, you should for our Tempura Green Tea Ice Cream that's wrapped in chocolate cake? How do we do that? Well, that's our secret. All you have to concern yourself with is eating it all cause you really can't pack it up to go. You can share this with another person or two but if you're a pig like us, you'll get one for yourself. It's worth it. And also worth the extra hour at the gym.
