Sydney Food Diary: Butter, Surry Hills

I like surprises but it’s also sometimes nice to know what you’re in for. And there’s a lovely simplicity about Butter in that it’s not hard to describe. You can buy fried chicken here, in a spicy sauce. You can drink champagne or sparkling wine. I believe you can buy any of the trainers that are in the display case. There are tasty side dishes, and apparently you can sometimes get your fried chicken on ramen, but that information is not so important. Chicken, champagne, sneakers. If you like one of these, you’ll like Butter, and if you like two or more, you might not like it twice or three times as much, but you’ll enjoy yourself. That certainly seemed to be the verdict of the rest of the restaurant on the weeknight we were there. It was packed for a peak period of dinner and then thinned out, mostly young professional women, that night at least. We had a reason to celebrate so splurged on champagne. We mixed up the proteins by having fried tofu as well as chicken. The spicy sauce was… very spicy. The coleslaw was great. Order at the counter. Loud, casual, fun and ridiculously Surry Hills cool.
