Now Open: Haymarket's Edition Roasters Will Now Transform Into a Japanese Izakaya Each Evening
Head to Edition Haymarket once the sun goes down to enjoy kingfish sashimi, charcoal chicken skewers and plenty of sake.
August 19, 2022
One of Sydney's favorite cafes, Edition Roasters has added an exciting new element to its Haymarket offering. The sleek minimalist coffee shop has been serving up top-notch brews in Haymarket since it opened its second cafe in 2018 (before closing its OG Darlinghurst venue shortly after).
Now, with more cafes in World Square and Wynyard, the Edition team has also introduced a new dining experience focused on sake and classic Japanese favourites.
From 5.30pm four days a week at its flagship Darling Square cafe, the cafe puts away the beans and the oat milk — transforming into Edition Izakaya. This new nighttime venue is now open Wednesday–Saturday and joins a host of renowned dining options like XOPP, IIKO Mazesoba, Nakano and Tsuki Yo at Darling Square.
On the menu, you'll find a range of Japanese favorites: garlic edamame, teriyaki fried chicken, kingfish sashimi, king prawn udon with black garlic butter and soy butter clams with crispy potatoes.
There's also a specific charcoal grill menu frying up saikyo salmon ochazuke and an array of yakitori. Order your choice of chicken thigh, mb5+ Angus beef, king brown mushrooms and marinated quail eggs, all given the charcoal grill experience.
Sake lovers rejoice, there's an extensive list on offer including spiced pear and orange hot sake — joined on the drinks menu by a reserved selection of Japanese whiskey and Asahi.
Plus, the Edition team has also transitioned their cake and pastry experience to Edition Izakaya, creating a dessert menu that's sure to tempt you into making room for just one more thing. The basque cheesecake is infused with yuzu and the tiramisu is a miso, coffee crystal and chocolate delight — how could you say no?
Edition Izakaya is open 5.30pm–11pm Wednesday–Saturday at 60, Darling Drive, Haymarket.
