Fire, Fried Chicken and Champagne Party
Sydney's Butter teams up with Kong for a one-off feast of fried chicken and fancy bubbles.
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 is venturing south, joining forces with Melbourne's own Kong BBQ to deliver a feast of wildly tasty proportions.
Descending on the Richmond restaurant on Saturday, October 26, the Fire, Fried Chicken and Champagne Party promises to hit some big flavour notes, as both chefs get down to some creative collaborating, pulling inspiration from the US, Japan and Korea.
The one-off eight-dish menu is set to feature finger lickin' options like the 'Peking Cluck' bao — stuffed with crispy tenders, cucumber, pickles and condiments — and popcorn chicken bites teamed with spicy mayo.
You'll also be getting stuck into treats like barbecued corn cobs slathered in miso butter, wood-grilled edamame with spiced dashi seasoning, and Butter's creamy cabbage and apple slaw. Oh, and peanut butter and jelly ice cream sandwiches for dessert.
The lunch feed clocks in at $55 a head, but of course, it wouldn't be a Butter affair without some fancy bubbles to match. You'll be able to team that fried chicken with flutes of Moët for $15 a pop.
