The Henson: Great place to chill with good food

Eatery: The Henson
Address: 91 Illawarra Road, Marrickville NSW 2204
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.
