Eat at Sandy
Eat at Sandy occupies a former pizzeria, but you won’t find pizza on the menu. The restaurant is an extension of Wollongong’s Sandygoodwhich and shares the same Middle Eastern- and Mediterranean-style of food and focus on house-made ingredients.
A large wood fire oven is at the heart of the kitchen. It’s used to bake bread and roast meat and vegetables. Shared plates and sides could include free-range pork belly or lamb next to a plate of hasselback sweet potato or carrots with honey and labne. Snacks include spiced popcorn, and dips with olives and zaatar bread. There’s also plenty for kids, such as hidden veg bolognese, and macaroni and cheese. Beer and wine is on offer and each Wednesday night is BYO.
The restaurant is perfect for families. The atmosphere is relaxed and orders are placed at the counter. There’s plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, too.
