Your Guide to Thai One On’s Sushi Menu

sushiThe perfect answer to the age-old question, “What’s for dinner tonight?” is to order sushi from Thai One On. You can also choose to visit us at our Carlsbad location for a substantial menu of offerings. Our sushi items are consistently made fresh to order!

Main Types of Sushi

Rolls, or maki, feature a filling mixture of fresh fish or shellfish and rice rolled with the seaweed facing out. Those served with the seaweed facing in and the rice on the outside are called uramaki. Some popular menu items are the Blondie, Ginger, and Salmon 360.

Nigiri consists of a piece of freshly sliced fish that is draped over pressed rice. While nigiri typically features raw fish, such as salmon or yellowtail, cooked toppings like tiger shrimp may also be used.

Hand Rolls, or temaki, are filled with a variety of delicious ingredients and hand-rolled into a cone-shaped piece of seaweed or soy paper. May we suggest the fried salmon skin with fresh salmon, Negi, gobo, cucumber, and ponzu, or the zigzag with soft shell crab, avocado cream sauce, and soy paper?

Sashimi is a Japanese delicacy, which consists only of sliced pieces of fish or shellfish. It may be served with a garnish and sauce.

Omakase means “I’ll leave it up to you” in Japanese, and it is only available at Thai One On’s sushi bar in Carlsbad. Our chef custom selects the menu, choosing pieces that will tantalize the senses, creating a distinctive experience. The options include the chef’s choice, chef’s choice with drink pairings, and VIP chef’s choice.
