Breakfast at Sokyo - The Star, Pyrmont

I've been meaning to try out the buffet breakfast at Sokyo for the longest time - as soon as I heard about the mini black sesame and matcha muffins, I was sold! Christmas was the perfect downtime to take the family to try it out.


We mostly opt for the greedy option of the main dish + buffet selection, plus the choice of a tea or coffee. 

The mini muffins are fantastic; crisp on the outside with fluffy innards. Both the matcha and black sesame flavours were nice and strong. 

Orange juice

All the juices (apple and orange) came in these adorable ceramic containers. 

Sumo breakfast

A big breakfast with a Japanese touch. The sumo breakfast consisted of a choice of eggs (we chose sunny side up), grilled bacon, Japanese sausage, sautéed mushroom, edamame, tempura hash brown, cherry tomatoes, and toasted ciabatta. 

Spicy udon salmon

Not something usually assoicated with a breakfast dish, but I very much enjoyed this spicy white miso roasted salmon. It was served with onsen egg, crab, wakame, enoki and a spicy miso dashi soup base.

Beef bibimbap

I completely love the idea of a breakfast bibimbap, after having one at my all-time favourite, Pinbone. Sokyo's version is made with 48 hour braised wagyu beef, and includes radish, carrot, zucchini, pickled mushrooms, beansprouts, seaweed + a fried egg on top.

The Sokyo buffet breakfast is a rather indulgent affair; perfect for a leisurely weekend brunch, you definitely will not need lunch afterward! I recommended going for the a-la-carte dish + buffet, as the buffet does not contain many hot dishes - it's all pastries, fruit, cold meats, yoghurt etc

Have been really intrigued by the Sokyo breakfast buffet. Love that you get OJ in mini sake bottles!
