Hawa Chicken, Granville

SYDNEY | Ask a local where to find Sydney’s best Lebanese-style charcoal chicken, and there’s a handful of places that will always come up – El Jannah, Awafi Chicken, and Hawa Chicken. Hawa Chicken has been doing its thing for decades, located in the same space in Granville, just up from the original El Jannah. The space has been renovated in recent years, but the food remains as good as ever.

Drawing a dedicated following from the area’s Lebanese and other immigrant communities, Hawa Chicken keeps things simple. Walk inside and you’ll immediately be intoxicated by the alluring smell of chicken cooking over charcoal. On the menu, you’ll find said chicken and an assortment of sides like tabouleh, hummus, toum, and pickles. There’s also things like kefta spiced lamb mince, shish lamb skewers and shish tawook marinated chicken.

If you’ve not been to Hawa before (or even if you have), it’s hard to go past the charcoal chicken combo. Your choice of a quarter, half, or whole chicken, served with Lebanese flatbread, pickles, tabouleh, hummus, and toum. Be sure to get some chips to go with it as well. The chicken lives up to the hype – tender and full of garlicy, lemony flavour, with super crispy skin with the fat rendered.

If you’re vegan, you can still enjoy the food at Hawa Chicken. The falafel are great, and beyond the aforementioned sides there’s also things like baba ghanouj, dolmades, deep-fried cauliflower, and deep-fried eggplant. All of them are great.
