In a nutshell: Fried chicken sarnies for Shoreditch
Summing it all up: Award-winning chicken trader completes the move from street food to permanent spot with the opening of their first place in Shoreditch
Ever since we tried one of their chicken sandwiches at Taste of London, we've been a little bit smitten by Butchies. In the now-traditional route to permanent digs, they started life as a street trader at Broadway Market. Then they opened a 'hatch' at Camden Market, which has since closed. Now they're really settling down with the announcement of a permanent spot on Rivington Street in Shoreditch.
The new two floor spot will have room for 45 bums on seats. And - handy if you live or work nearby - you can also get a takeaway. How's that for giving your colleagues total lunch envy?
Other than that - here's what you need to know about it.
They have a craft beer vending machine.
This is not a drill. There is a real life vending machine serving more than 20 varieties of beer from brewers such as Cloudwater and Beavertown.
There is a top sounding veggie option
Who doesn't fancy the Buffalo Halloumi, served with house pickles, buffalo sauce & blue cheese ranch?
Choose from SIX types of fried chicken sarnies
The menu here ranges from The Original with house pickles and Butchies’ homemade garlic & fresh herb aioli (£6) to Jenny from the Block which comes with guacamole, chipotle mayo and smoked streaky bacon.
Husband and wife team Garret Garrett and Emer FitzGerald are pretty stoked to be opening a restaurant in their neighbourhood."Having lived and worked in East London for the past 10 years," says Garrett, "it is amazing to be giving our award winning fried chicken a permanent home in our own backyard.”
