Time Out says

There's something sensually satisfying about eating with your hands. Maybe it's the return to our primal nature or the extra flavour our fingers magically impart – either way, being dirty never felt so good.

Over on Amoy Street, Chico Loco is leading the mess-is-best revolution. Spit-roasted chicken ($9/quarter, $17/half, $32/whole) is served on trays alongside delectable sides such as the Chicoslaw ($6), a refreshing Thai take on the salad with mango and green papaya; rice tossed with chicken fat and cucumbers ($4) and chips with guac ($7). Did we mention that each chook is brined for 10 hours before it's based in 11 herbs and spices before it's roasted on an open flame? Also trust us when we say that you won't find any dry, shrivelled up breast meat here – each is plump and juicy, just the way it should be.

If chicken's not your thing, don't worry. There's the equally delicious dry-rubbed lamb shoulder ($12/125g, $23/$250g) best dipped in sauces like Chico's smokey chipotle barbecue ($2) or habanero mango sauce ($2).
