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 charcoal-grilled cuttlefish, wrapped in lettuce leaf typhoon shelter style; before something heartier such as Rangers Valley Wagyu rump, charred broccolini and sesame sauce. For a sweet finish, try peanut parfait, soft chocolate, salted butterscotch, caramel corn and whiskey snap.
