Cuisine: Vietnamese

At the weekend, be led by your nose to Hai Au and its open-window, wood-fired barbecue with chicken wrapped in banana leaves on a rotisserie ($40 whole, $20 half chicken). This is perhaps the closest Sydney gets to Hanoi’s famous BBQ Chicken Street. A large, bustling restaurant with loud pop music on numerous TVs, Hai Au is also the pick of Canley Vale’s many Vietnamese eateries if you have a group of 20 to feed and want to upsize your dishes (most dishes: small $15, medium $20, large $25). A southern Vietnamese staple, canh chua, sour tamarind and fish soup $15, is also a specialty here, while the charcoal beef salad $15, caramelised fish hotpot $15–$25 and salt-and-pepper pork ribs are favourites with locals and those
in the know.
