Butter, Parramatta

One of Sydney’s best fried chicken joints has opened a flagship store in Parramatta. Butter is a hybrid fried chicken restaurant, champagne bar, streetwear and sneakers shop mashed into a dope 2-floor venue. Chef Julian Cincotta and his Butter crew has done an excellent job with their new Parra shop.

Butter is located at V by Crown’s street level on Marsden Street. It’s where street swag and beats meet amazing comfort food. The new store also sells hard to find sneakers and other merch by Butter. Everything from Yeezys, Nike collabs and Butter bogo shirts are available. I hold Butter up there as one of my favourite joints for a legit fried chicken feed so I had to visit them on their opening day!

Butter’s OG chicken sandwich ($17 with a side of slaw) is still my favourite fried chicken sandwich in Sydney. Everything from the Southern-style buttermilk fried chicken to the dashi butter and pickles is off the hook. The fried chicken’s rippled crunchy coating, juicy meat and flavours is insane. The generous amount of dashi butter has so much umami. The pickles are on point. It is perfection in its simplicity. 

Another delicious version of their chicken sandwich is the Cheesuz sandwich ($17 with a side of slaw). Double cheese, lettuce, honey mustard and a perfect fried chicken thigh fillet.

Not only do they sell limited editions of sneakers here, but they also have limited runs of their chicken sandwich. While it’s still around, y’all should try the Butter 3000 sandwich ($17)! It is an amazing crispy fried chicken thigh fillet with smoked pastrami, pickled daikon, slaw and kabayaki sauce in a soft bun. The kabayaki sauce (normally used for unagi) is sweet with notes of umami.
 The classic fried chicken size 13 box ($69) is also available of course! You get 4 thigh pieces, 9 tenders, 2 sides of pickles, 2 sides of slaw and 3 choices of sauce. You can choose your heat from naked (If you wanna keep it naturel and classic), OG, fire and all the way to an extreme “hot AF” sauce for your chicken.
 The donuts ($5) here are legit! Their massive classic cinnamon and sugar donuts are delicious, hella fluffy and buttery. 

Other sides like laces (shoestring fries), miso corn, and collard greens are also on the menu. To quench that thirst, slushies, cocktails, ciders, wines and champagnes are available at the bar. Don’t forget to check out all the merchandise upstairs!
