Chaco is a yakitori joint in Potts Point with long communal high tables, a cocktail bar, and a few seats up to the island kitchen. The a la carte menu (served during the week) has small plates, Fukuoka-style skewers, and many things cooked over charcoal, including the Horumon Yaki of chicken hearts, giblets, and soft bones. On weekends they serve a $95 seven-course tasting menu of greatest hits, but whenever you’re here, definitely dive into the sake and shōchū menu—the helpful waitstaff are always ready with advice. Meanwhile, if you’re pining for ramen, the same people own Chaco Ramen, a tiny bar in Darlinghurst serving steamy bowls in a room that feels like a clubhouse filled with your best friends, even if you’ve never been to Sydney before.
