After living abroad for nearly a decade, I've returned to rediscover all the wonderful things in Sydney and Australia.

Cosy Yakitori bar in Darlinghurst
On the Darlinghurst end of Crown Street, you'll find the small and intimate Chaco Bar - reminiscent of a typical Izakaya you'd find in Japan.

More of a restaurant than a bar, Chaco Bar is part of the growing trend in Sydney of Yakitori Bars - grilled meat and vegetables on skewers. The menu consists of a lot of small dishes designed to be shared.

Smoky edamame, spicy sizzling gyozas and prawn and pork belly baos will get you started.

The yakitori menu has a good selection of meats from all cuts of chicken (think hearts, gizzards, tails) to wagyu tongue. Don't dismiss the vegetable skewers especially the miso eggplant and okra. My favourite was probably the enoki and pork. They also have a chef selection of 6 different skewers for those who can't decide.

The atmosphere is friendly, cosy and buzzing on a busy Friday night. There is one communal table in the centre of the bar and a small number of surrounding tables. Staff are friendly and each dish is paced well, giving you time to enjoy each skewer instead of being presented with a massive dish of skewers all at once. Be advised to book for dinner, as this is a popular spot!

'pork belly baos' ? - that's a Taiwanese dish - aka Tiger Leaping Buns.

in a yakitori place ? - must be authentic - not - but then again most 'Japanese' sushi places in Sydney are run by Koreans anyway.
