Sokyo Brunch

Famed for its creative take on modern Japanese cuisine, Sokyo at The Star Sydney is introducing its own twist on Sunday Brunch from Sunday 5th December, just in time for those summer get-togethers.

The introduction of the Sunday Brunch comes off the back of Sokyo unveiling the next phase of its evolution since it opened its doors post-lockdown – with refreshed interiors and an extension of the esteemed Japanese restaurant’s dinner and cocktail menu. Dedicated to making every meal a ceremonial moment, Executive Chef Chase Kojima challenged himself to bring the same Japanese traditional techniques he’s known and loved to one of Sydney’s favourite mealtimes.

Those feeling peckish will be able to order from a range of yuzu, black sesame and matcha-infused pastries, while those looking for a heartier meal can choose from dishes such as Steak and Eggs, a shio koji-marinated flank steak served with hayashi rice covered in a lightly folded omelette; Sokyo’s iconic Dengakuman miso-glazed toothfish with Yumepirica rice and Japanese pickles; and a breakfast-appropriate take on the traditional Japanese okonomiyaki pancake aptly named the Sokyonomiyaki served with bacon, black pepper teriyaki, poached eggs, dried bonito flakes and a lashing of kewpie mayonnaise.

From 11:30 am-3:00 pm each Sunday, brunch-goers will be able to enjoy an a la carte menu of Sokyo’s best signature breakfast dishes, unique cocktails and a vibrant, party atmosphere.
