Butter Surry Hills Sydney – Fried chicken, Champagne and Shoes
Where can you find fried chicken, champagne and shoes in a restaurant? The answer is Butter in Surry Hills Sydney. The concept of this restaurant is quite unique, their main course is fried chicken, the drink is champagne and it is also a shoe shop. Totally unbelievable. Not forgetting they serve their fried chickens in a shoe box.
On our recent food trip to Sydney, we went around the city to check out some of the best cafes, restaurants and even bars for our blog. One of the most unique lunches we had is Butter. The restaurant started earlier this year and created a buzz on the local food scene due to its unique concept. We are big fans of fried chicken and seriously we never had it with champagne before and that’s why we went to check it out.
Butter is located at 6 Hunt Street, Surry Hills in Sydney. There are quite a number of popular restaurants in this suburb. From the glance of the exterior of the restaurant, you probably mistaken it as a shoe shop and they parade various types of sneakers on their glass window.
The restaurant is quite compact and it was pretty crowded during lunch time. Try to visit the restaurant early if you can or else you might have to wait.
A quick glance at their food menu you can find fried chicken thigh and tenders, sandwiches and fried tofu. We ordered size 13’s which comes with 4 thigh pieces, 9 tenders, 2 sides of pickles, 2 sides of slaw, 3 sauces for $60. Not forgetting you can choose the spiciness of your fried chicken sauces in three levels; OG, fire, hot AF.
On top of that, there are three additional types of sauces you can order (for extras) are honey mustard, buttermilk ranch and smoked aioli.
The Size 13’s comes in a white shoe box. When you open the shoe box, you can find the fried chicken inside. The sides of pickles, slaw and sauces will come separately.
The fried chicken was deep fried to perfection and we love how they make it to bite size so you don’t have to get messy with your hands. The chicken is crispy on the outside and it is still tender and juicy on the inside. You can enjoy its original taste or compliment it with the sauces.
We also ordered two flutes of champagnes and it makes the lunch classier. Trust us, it complements the fried chicken well!
You can check out the shoes available for sale or just enjoy the fried chicken with one hand and champagne flute on the other. We yet to encounter any classier place to eat fried chicken than Butter Sydney. The combination of fried chicken and champagne is pure genius. For more info, visit https://buttersydney.com.au

We had a little snack at the SilverKris Lounge while waiting for our Singapore Airlines flight. Thus, we also enjoy the cozy sofas as well as the long tables good for savy and business travellers.
