Gault & Millau: Introducing Saké @ Home
Looking to luxe up your iso-life? Craving a super-fusion Saké fix from the comfort of your own home? Saké Restaurant & Bar Double Bay has sharpened its sushi knives, oiled the robata grill, and powered up the stovetops to reopen for kerb-side pick-up via its new Saké @ Home service and website: shop.sakerestaurant.com.au.
Saké chefs heard customers’ iso-cries for Saké classics such as hiramasa kingfish, popcorn shrimp, miso-glazed toothfish and karaage chicken – they’re all on the Saké @ Home menu.
Saké @ Home wouldn’t hit the mark without signature sashimi, nigiri and sushi rolls, so they’re in plentiful supply too, crafted from the finest sashimi-grade tuna, salmon, kingfish, snapper, cuttlefish and scallop.
There are cold starters, including tuna and kingfish tostadas, oysters with ginger dressing, finger lime and tobiko, and new-style sashimi; and hot starters which span edamame, miso soup, steamed prawn dumplings and grilled eggplant with den miso. Main dishes include chicken teriyaki with steamed choy sum and renkon chips; Wagyu fried rice with poached egg, shichimi and aonori; and Rangers Valley Wagyu skewers with sesame glaze and bok choy. Crispy Brussels sprouts with kimchi vinaigrette and house salad of radicchio, gem lettuce, wakame, endive and ginger soy vinaigrette are side dish options.
After a short hiatus, Saké Double Bay’s Uber Eats delivery service has also recommenced.
The Saké @ Home pick-up menu can be paired with drinks, including an exceptional range of Japanese beers by Hitachino and Asahi, as well as local and other international craft brews that are available as six-packs. Seven wines are available by the bottle, as well as three wine-pack options:
• #1 Jim Barry ‘Lodge Hill’ Riesling, Samuel Smith & Son Opawa Rosé, Place of Changing Winds Heathcote
Syrah No 2
• #2 Bianca Vigna Prosecco, St Hugo Chardonnay, Airlie Bank Pinot Noir
• #3 Moët & Chandon Vintage Champagne, William Fevre Petit Chablis, Yalumba ‘Paradox’ Shiraz
A selection of sake and umeshu is also available.
Rockpool Dining Group Chief Executive Officer Thomas Pash said Saké @ Home was a fabulous premium addition to restaurant pick-up services in the Eastern suburbs.
“Our new Saké @ Home pick-up service nicely complements our Uber Eats delivery option, which has just restarted after a short break,” Mr Pash said.
“We are thrilled to be bringing some of our Saké Double Bay team back to work, to be re-connecting with our suppliers, and offering local customers vibrant home-dining options to see them through the continued period of self-isolation and restrictions on full restaurant operations.”
Saké @ Home is available for pick-up Monday to Wednesday 4pm–8pm, Thursday to Saturday 12.30pm–8pm, and Sunday 12.30pm–7.30pm.
