Opening Hours: Sun – Tues 11am – 9pm; Wed & Thurs 11am – 9.30pm; Fri & Sat 11am – 10pm.Must Try: Soft Shell Crab Burger and Mac'n'cheese croquettes
|Soft Shell Crab Burger, old bay coleslaw, ice-berg, sriracha & chips $17|
Soft shell crab! I think the reason why I love them so much it's due to the fact that I love crabs and I can eat them without peeling (nope I ain't lazy) !
The Henson is very generous with their serving - this was packed with crab and the good ol' sriracha made it spicily addictive. Chips were not crunchy enough though :(
|Smoked cauliflower Mac'n'cheese croquettes, truffled mayo $15|
Other than the soft shell crab, these croquettes caught my eye in the menu! When it was served, all I could smell was the truffled mayo. These croquettes were beautiful, I mean, what can go wrong with mac'n'cheese!
|King Prawn Po Boy, avo, ice-berg, crispy shallots, smoked chilli + lime mayo, steamed bun & chips $17|
A whole new level of yumminess! The flavours were amazing and love the crunch from the fried shallots. AND there were so many juicy king prawns in it!
|Karaage Chicken Burger, pickled greens, charred onion, miso mayo & chips $17|
The chicken was perfectly cooked, succulent inside and crispy outside. Couldn't really taste the miso in the mayo but the charred onion was definitely sweet!
|Tempura chicken nuggets + chips $7|
This is from the kids menu! I didn't eat it but my nephew who happens to be a picky eater demolished it.
The Henson has an outdoor area which is PERFECT for Summer! And for those who have kids, there's a play room for them. Every time I go, kids love going to that area :)
You enter into the eating part of the Henson from the Back Bar. From the outside, it just looks like a normal pub but when you enter, you'll be so surprised with the interior and vibe. Love this place for a meal or just a quick drink + snibble.
