RA Sushi Bar Restaurants at Tustin and Huntington Beach are known throughout the OC for delicious food, amazing happy hour specials, great people, and a hip, trendy vibe. And now, both locations just got even better.
This summer RA launched an updated dinner and drinks menu, adding a bevy of fresh and delicious new appetizers, main dishes, and cocktail selections that will leave guests wanting to come back for more. In addition, RA has also kicked off a “Reverse Happy Hour” to complement the new menu, available at both OC locations, featuring late night food and drink specials for those night owls out there.
Recently my husband and I visited the RA Sushi Tustin location to sample the new menu, drinks, and specials, and, as always, the visit did not disappoint!
Here are a few reasons why you should add RA to your list of places to check out this summer:
1. Cocktails, Anyone?
New summer cocktails, like the Strawberry Saketini and the Coconut Moshi Mojito, make for a deliciously refreshing indulgence. Three new “skinny” cocktails, like the Cucumber Collins, the Kiwi-berry Kiss, and the Lycheetini, have also now graced the menu, making it easier to enjoy extra downtime with friends without the extra calories.
2. The Warm-Up
Delicious appetizers like the Garlic Edamame or Bonfire Shrimp give a new spin on traditional shrimp and edamame by adding more exciting flavors. And the Edamame Dip? To die for! (You may even want to order two of them instead of ordering a full meal!)
3. The Main Event
New shareable plates like the Holy Shishito Chicken (Asian breaded chicken lightly fried and sautéed in a chili sesame sauce), and the Drunken Clams or Drunken Black Mussels (steamed in sake and sautéed in garlic and seasoned with soy sauce) are just a few of the highlights. For lighter fare choose the Salmon with Green Beans, or the popular Asian Chicken Wings in new flavors like Sesame Garlic, Black Pepper Teriyaki, or Chili Ponzu.
4. Best. Tacos. Ever!
If you try nothing else, try the Crispy Asian Tacos. Held together by a rice paper shell and coming in 5 different varieties, this was my absolute favorite menu item. Light, and crisp yet so flavorful, you can easily eat a plateful, or two, like I did! Try the Spicy Tuna, Chicken, Spicy Salmon, Crispy White Fish, or, my personal favorite, the RA-ckin’ Shrimp tacos. You will not be disappointed.
5. Tuesday at 10 p.m.? Why not?
RA has been known for their great happy hour specials, running currently Monday –Saturday from 3-7 p.m. Now get ready for Reverse Happy Hour; RA Sushi in Huntington Beach will now offer happy hour specials Monday-Saturday from 10 p.m. to midnight, and RA Sushi in Tustin will offer the same food and drink specials, Monday-Thursday, also from 10 pm to midnight. The Reverse Happy Hour menu will include more than 35 sushi, appetizer, and tapas selections, ranging anywhere from $2.25 to $7.25, and the menu will also feature an array of beer, wine, and signature cocktails. Favorites on the menu include the Tootsy Maki, Viva Las Vegas Roll, Sake Sangria, and Mango Martini, among others.
Japanese fusion meets amazing food, cocktails, and a cool atmosphere you won’t find elsewhere at RA Sushi Bar Restaurant. Stop in and visit their locations in either Tustin or Huntington Beach to check out these delicious new menu items, and see just why you’ll soon be back.
