Chaco Bar Potts Point is the sister venue to the tiny ramen-ya in Darlinghurst—but you won’t find bone broth here. Instead, the Potts Point outpost specialises in Yakitori dining meaning chargrilled skewers are the main event.
On the sticks, you’ll find everything from chicken, lamb, and pork to ox tongue, hearts, and gizzards meaning nothing wasted and everything put to good use. They also offer pot-cooked pigeon and Maron lobster. Dishes are cooked over cherry blossom charcoal and basted in Japanese seasonings giving them a rich, smoky flavour.
The sake here is bought from an endless rotation of small, family-run makers in Japan, packing out their extensive drinks list of sochu and whisky.
