Henrietta is a casual and fun charcoal chicken eatery, bar and takeaway shop by prolific Crown Street restaurateur Ibby Moubbadder (Nour, Cuckoo Callay.

The charcoal chicken is the star here and, according to Moubadder, the best way to eat the charcoal chicken is with your hands. Tear open your Turkish bread; slather toum [garlic sauce] across it; load the thing with chicken, pickles and chips; and eat it all together. It’s not fancy, but it’s definitely fun. A lot of thought has gone into the takeaway chooks too, which makes Henrietta a great option to keep in mind next time you’re having chicken at home.

While the charcoal chicken is the star, you can also get chicken-tawouk (skewered chicken) spring rolls with toum; lamb kibbeh (bulgur, minced onions, finely ground meat and spices) san choy bow; brisket-shawarma tacos with zhug (a Yemeni hot sauce similar to chimichurri); and falafel bao with harissa and mint yoghurt.

There’s a slushie machine at the bar, and a robust list of fun cocktails that come in bubble-tea-like packaging. Try a lychee Cosmo or a spicy passionfruit Margarita. The space is neon-splashed and tactile-friendly, with a clever combination of terrazzo and textured concrete surfaces.
