The best yakitori in Sydney is at Chaco Bar. It is my fave restaurant and the service is always on point. The set menu always makes things easier if you can’t decide on what to order but we’ve opted for the ala carte menu and start off with some oysters with kumquat jam and yuzu ponzu and the house aged jerky is the perfect drinking snack.

The sashimi platter is a work of art, highlights were the freshwater eel, the super plump scallop and the lightly poached paradise prawn. The spanner crab chawanmushi is definitely a must order, the dashi egg custard is incredibly smooth and light and the shellfish butter adds that perfect umami richness.

A Chaco Bar OG classic is this beautiful plate of wagyu carpaccio with egg yolk, parmigiano regiano, uni and truffle. Mix it all up for the most incredible flavour explosion.

Next was the 2GR Wagyu tartare which uses fullblood eye round and has smoked oyster and sits in the cutest monaka wafer boat. Finally the yakitori! I was so excited for the chicken tail and it’s crispy on the outside and unctuously soft, creamy and fatty in the centre. The corn fed chicken thigh with spring onion is so juicy and transports me back to the small bars in Tokyo. We also ordered the pork belly with asparagus and also the Bangalow sweet pork belly with yuzu kosho. A plate of pickles is definitely recommended, the yuzu daikon was so refreshing.

And we had to fit in dessert, the coconut and yuzu daifuku was the perfect palate cleanser but the matcha white chocolate Dafuku won my heart and the mochi was just silky perfection.
