Sak Jr to launch third site this week
Urban Purveyor Group is opening its third Sak Jr CBD location within three months, bringing the fast casual spin-off of Sak Restaurant & Bar to Grosvenor Place’s Piazza in Sydney on 4 November.
To celebrate its arrival, Sak Jr Grosvenor Place will give away 500 of its $15, build-your-own bowls to the first customers in line when it opens at 11am on 4 November.
With other locations in Westfield Sydney and 555 Bourke Street in Melbourne, Sake Jr customers build their bowl by selecting a base of either sushi rice, brown rice, noodles, salad or bao buns and topping it with their choice of vegetables, proteins, sauces and condiments, all of which are inspired by the flavours, recipes and ingredients of Sak Restaurant & Bar and are delivered with a Korean twist.
The menu also includes ‘grab & go’ items, including Sak signatures like miso and kimchi soups, sushi rolls, salads, dumplings and gyoza; desserts, such as chocolate-dipped strawberry shuriken ice cream sandwich and vegan coconut ginger and lime ice cream; as well as cold press juices, smoothies, Bonacci coffee, T2 Teas and organic kombucha.
Customers will be able to purchase draught Hattori Hitgirl or Blushing Geisha craft beer by Urban Craft Brewing Co, an arm of Urban Purveyor Group, as well as house wines on tap, and sak by the glass.
Sak Jr Grosvenor Place will open for breakfast from 7.30am daily from 5 November, offering, build-your-own brekkie bowls featuring scrambled egg, scrambled egg whites, Japanese hash browns, edamame fried rice, crispy pork belly, shiitake mushrooms, tofu, avocado and other ingredients. Other breakfast items include Japanese acai bowl and berry and yuzu muesli.
Daily specials include a $7.50 breakfast bacon and egg bao bun and coffee combination, and a $10 build-your-own bowl and 300ml craft beer pairing between 4pm and 7pm. Fresh-blended smoothies are half price ($4.50) every Monday.
Urban Purveyor Group plans to roll out around 100 Sak Jr diners nationally in the next five years.
