Henrietta is not your average takeaway charcoal chicken joint – although you can still come in and grab a chook to go. But it’s much fancier than that, replete with table service and a full bar pouring wine and mixing cocktails. And there’s also much more on the menu than charcoal chicken, although that is the star. Tear open your Lebanese bread, slather on garlic sauce, load it up with chicken, pickles and chips and prepare for things to get messy, in the best possible way.
If the aroma of the chicken doesn’t get you salivating, then opt for lamb kofta or chermoula tiger prawns, perhaps, or sides and salads like charred corn, fattoush and pearl couscous with yogurt and pistachios.
The drinks list is concise, but has cocktails that pair perfectly with the earthiness of the chook and zing of garlic sauce. Try the Spicy Passionfruit Margarita, with a dash of sumac and lime.
