Rotisserie coming back to Sydney’s institutions is always going to go down well, so the news that Manly Wharf Hotel is the latest to introduce the style of roasting is exciting for locals and visitors who frequent the waterside eatery. Newly appointed chef Ieti Roma has led the change, bringing experience from the kitchens of neighbouring icon The Steyne as well as Balmain’s The London and Dee Why Hotel.
“Who doesn’t love a good rotisserie meat and sides in Australia”, offered Roma. “There’s definitely a resurgence of rotisserie in Sydney because it’s the perfect combination of comfort and flavour but light enough to be enjoyed on a hot summer’s day”.
The rotisserie menu will be changing daily with rotating selections of chicken, beef, lamb, pork, and seafood, with a particular focus on chook brined with salt and butter and offered as half ($24) or whole ($39). All rotisserie dishes come with a local milk bun, some golden chunky chips, slaw, and roasted gravy. Word has it some of the pub’s summer salads will also be making use of the roasted chooks.
