At Rookie I have the opportunity to dictate the direction of the business, which in turn gives me freedom in the kitchen and in life.
Whether a first-time diner or seasoned regular, Rookie Eatery on Keira Street in Wollongong welcomes guests to a contemporary Asian fusion dining experience well worth remembering. Clean and casual, Rookie Eatery’s three rooms of whitewashed walls, crisp white tablecloths and refreshing interior, play in fitting contrast to a rugged historic housed exterior, suited for casual refined gatherings. Chef and owner Daniel Sherley presides over a vibrant menu, taking taste buds on a journey through the likes of beef and mushroom dumplings, chiu chow and black vinegar; before something heartier such as koji pork neck, miso mustard, pickled onions, or steamed market fish, soy, ginger and shallots. For a sweet finish, try butterscotch chocolate tart, vanilla ice cream and Jerusalem artichoke chips.
