Butter X Kong BBQ Kim Chi'Ken Sandwich
A limited-edition fried chicken sandwich from Sydney's Butter.
If you're yet to get acquainted with the unique combination of fried chicken, sneakers and champagne that is Butter, here's your chance. The Sydney favourite has whipped up a limited-edition fried chicken sandwich that's available to buy right here in Melbourne.
Available to eat in-store or takeaway at Richmond's Kong BBQ from January 24–February 3, the Kim Chi'Ken Sandwich combines Butter's fried chicken and the Japanese and Korean barbecue flavours found throughout the menu at Kong. In a soft milk bun, you'll find a big fried tender, kimchi butter, pickled fennel and cucumber, togarashi spice and a fried egg. All for $18.50.
It's oh-so yolky and stacked high — so eating it will definitely require a napkin or two.
To celebrate the collab, a limited number of Butter X Kong t-shirts will also be available online and in-store for $50.
It's the second time in as many years that Butter has made an appearance at Kong BBQ, with the store hosting a one day Fire, Fried Chicken and Champagne pop-up there last October. Hopefully this means we can expect even more of them in the future, too.
