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 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 resonating with fresh aromas and flavours. Tastebuds are taken on a journey through the likes of lamb and cumin dumplings, chiu chow and black vinegar, as well as duck Maryland, yuzu mustard, puffed quinoa, pickled kohlrabi and crisp nori; while for something heartier, delve into duck breast, black garlic puree, apple, amaranth and mirin.
