Sake Launches Another Miniature Spinoff in the Sydney CBD with Free Food

After launching a pint-size spinoff specialising in build-your-own bowls back in August, swish Japanese joint Sake is already launching a second iteration of Saké Jr. Opening this week in Grosvenor Place in the CBD, the "fast-casual" eatery will offer rice, noodle, salad and bao bun-based bowls, along with breakfast options, 'grab and go' items, smoothies, coffee, kombucha and beer.

Open 7.30am to 8pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to 6pm on weekends, Saké Jr sells itself on a healthy menu that is "honest, sustainable, affordable and convenient — and absolutely packed with flavour". Charging full steam ahead, this is their third Sake Jr to open this year, with the first two already open at Westfield Sydney and in Melbourne.

For example, workers blazing through the CBD at breakfast time grab an acai, seasonal fruit or berry and yuzu muesli bowl, and wash it down with a cold-pressed juice or smoothie.

Later in the day, you can make your own lunch. Just choose a base (like mix greens, udon noodle sticks or brown rice), decide on a protein (be it grilled chicken, popcorn shrimp, wagyu beef or tofu and shiitake), chuck in some veggies (such as wakame seaweed, steamed edamame, charred corn with garlic shots or crispy Brussels sprouts) and your choice of sauce and garnish. Voila!

Further beverage options include nut milk, craft beer, house wine on tap, and sake (of course) by the glass.

And if you're not sold on the idea, why not try it for free? To mark their grand opening, the first 500 people through the door after 11am today (Thursday, November 4), will receive a complimentary bowl. If you miss it though, they're planning on rolling out 100 of these joints nationally over the next five years — so you might get your chance to nab another free bowl pretty soon.

Sake Jr is located at Grosvenor Place, 225 George Street, The Rocks. For more information visit sakejr.com.au.
