Top 8 Things to Order at ETCetera Sushi & Izakaya
If you’re like me, you grew up eating sushi and your adoration for it is never-ending. But whether you’re a sushi fanatic or just have a mere interest in trying it for the first time, ETCetera Sushi & Izakaya, located in the Ayres Plaza or Orange County, is the place to go! This place has tons of selection and it is all so good, so to help you out on your first visit, I have highlighted the top eight things to order from this outstanding restaurant.
1) Vegetarian Options
Vegetarians, have no fear! ETCetera Sushi has not forgotten you. They have a variety of vegetarian options that will make sure you don’t feel like a fish out of water. From veggie tempura to tofu teriyaki, they have everything to make sure your experience is as good as any.
2) Unique Beverages
An Izakaya is a Japanese bar that serves a variety of small dishes that are meant to compliment the beverages served. That being said, if you’re a fan of alcoholic drinks, it’s a must to order accordingly and try out some of their unique beverage selection.
For all the salad lovers out there, check out their selection of greens topped with all your sushi roll favorites. For example, try the Spicy Tuna Salad and the ETC Salad, which features Sashimi.
4) Twists on Shrimp Tempura
If you’re a fan of Shrimp Tempura, you’ve come to the right place because their menu features 5 rolls that take creative twists on the traditional tempura. The “Sweet Crunchy Mama” roll lives up to it’s name as both sweet and crunchy, adding krab meat and asparagus. On the other hand, if you’re a lover of spicy jalapeno, the “Melts Your Heart Away” or “Costa Mesa Super Star” will probably suit you well.
5) Teriyaki Bowls
If you’re not really a sushi fan, you can “fake it ‘till you make it” with Etcetera’s variety of teriyaki dishes. They offer options of beef, chicken, salmon, and tofu, oh my!
6) Oyster Shots
From the “One Night Stand Shot,” a quail egg shooter, to the “Honeymooner Shot,” an all oyster shooter, they’ve got you covered. Plus, if you’re feeling more adventurous try out their “All Nighter,” an oyster and uni shooter. Why not give it a shot?
7) Rice-less Rolls
One theory is that these chefs have caught onto a big secret, and here it is: the less rice, the more room for delicious fish and veggies in you sushi rolls! Their menu offers four rice-less roll options that optimize your chance to eat all the fish you can. The “Fresh on Bristol” is a roll that is packed with tuna, salmon, albacore, krab, and avocado with no rice in sight. And if you really love fish, try the “M.I.L.F. (Man! I Love Fish)” roll that contains spicy crab, spicy tuna, salmon, albacore, and veggies. To top it all off, literally, is fresh mango and signature ETC sauce.
8) FBI (Fried Banana with Ice Cream)
Another customer favorite is their signature Fried Banana dessert, served with yummy green tea ice cream. This creation has many admirers on Yelp and it’s no surprise why.
If you need even further convincing, check them out on Yelp, where all their adoring fans post 5-star reviews and rave about their favorite orders.
