Sake Season at The Star Sydney’s Sokyo
For over a decade, Sokyo at The Star Sydney has served up some of the city’s most-loved Japanese cuisine. Fusing the worlds of Sydney and Tokyo, the Pyrmont mainstay offers kaiseki and omakase-style dining, not to mention a very impressive sake list – earning them the Best Sake List title at the 2021 Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards.
This October, Sokyo is offering two new sake-soaked experiences – a three-set sake tasting and a set menu with a premium sake flight to match.
The $34 three-set sake tasting features three pours of iconic sakes to complement Sokyo’s à-la-carte menu: the dry, stone-fruit-heavy Fukuju Junmai; the Fukuju Junmai Ginjo, made from the best sake rice of Hyogo Prefecture; and the Fukuju’s flagship Daiginjo, made from high-quality Yamadanishiki rice.
Or, dive a little deeper into sake and food pairings with the $320 Sushi and Sake Premium Flight is a five-course meal expertly matched with premium pours. Assorted sashimi, sushi, prawn tempura and MBS9+ wagyu meet their matches with top-shelf sake from Yoshingawa, Amanoto and Houraisen, while a glorious sake-themed dessert is paired with Houraisen’s fruit-fragrant Kanjuku Umeshu. All staff are trained by Australia’s first female Sake Samurai Yukino Ochiai, ensuring a top quality experience for all diners, as they work their way through the star-studded sake list.
In celebration of sake season, Sokyo will also feature a bespoke sakura cherry blossom installation, creating an ideal backdrop for the Japanese-inspired experience.
