Butter Ramen Club Tour 2022

Butter's tour of creative ramen dishes is back by popular demand — starting with its OG fried chicken ramen, of course.

Butter just keeps giving Sydneysiders more reasons to go absolutely crazy for it. The cult favourite is already a palace of fried chicken, sneakers and champagne — and every now and then it adds ramen to that list as well. If you're particularly fond of slurping down its brothy bowls, then you'll be immensely excited about its returning celebration of all things warm and soupy. Once again in 2022, the chain won't just be serving up one type of ramen, but lining up six limited-edition versions.

The series of ramen creations begins with Executive Chef Julian Cincotta, naturally, who is whipping up Butter's super-popular fried chicken ramen. It combines fresh thick-cut ramen noodles, a marinated soft-boiled half egg and enoki mushrooms in a chicken and dashi-based broth, and Butter's crispy fried chicken tenders. There will be a limited number of bowls available everyday until Monday, May 16 at each Butter venue. After that, a different ramen created by a different chef will feature each month until October.

Among the chefs jumping on board are Ume Burger Head Chef Kerby Craig with a miso-based tare, corn and Butter's chicken broth from Tuesday, May 17–Monday, June 20 — and also Rising Sun Workshop Director Nick Smith, who will be bringing a bowl filled with Butter's fried chicken with a burnt-ends glaze from Tuesday, June 21–Monday, July 18.

Then, from Tuesday, July 19—Monday, August 22, Cincotta will be back with a brand new creation: The Impossible Ramen.

Louis Tikaram from Stanley in Brisbane will give Sydneysiders a taste of his five spice fragrant ramen, too — which'll be available from Tuesday, August 23–Monday, September 19, and use a mix of Cantonese and Japanese flavours, plus Butter's fried chicken.

To wrap it all up, Cincotta returns from Tuesday, September 20–Monday, October 17 with a French dip ramen fried chicken sandwich.

Whichever of Butter's venues you head to, they'll be plating up a limited number of ramen each day. Still, if you're fond of both ramen and fried chicken — and who isn't? — it's an easy way to pick what you'll be eating each month.
