Henpecked is a all day cafe and bar located at Fort, Mumbai.
This cute cozy diner has a rustic decor and aims to serve fresh organic produce from the farms to your table.
Their food menu is a mix european classics, they even dish out hand tossed wood fired neopolitan pizzas.
The elaborate menu includes milkshakes, breakfast favorites, soup, salads, appetizers, mains, burger, sandwiches, pizza, pasta and desserts.
The fully stocked bar serves indian imported wine and spirits along with their freshly muddled signature cocktails.
So here is what I had –
KALE & ARUGULA GINITO –
Gin based cocktail made with kale/arugula/mint/lime and honey.
Extremely refreshing, citrucy with a tad of sweetness coming from the raw honey.
WILD ARUGULA –
Arugula leaves/caramelized figs and pine nuts dressed in a balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
Garnished with parmesan shavings.
Simple yet flavourful, it was all about the punchy aged balsamic vinaigrette used in the making.
Sharp parmesan shaving elevated the flavour even more.
PERI PERI CALAMARI –
Batter fried calamari sprinkled with peri peri spice mix.
Served with garlic aioli.
Squids were fresh, not at all chewy.
Aptly crispy n spicy, Fantastic.
Must try !!
CURRY PESTO PRAWNS –
Prawns marinated with curry leaves/coconut and mustard seeds, pan tossed with butter.
Juicy and succulent, the curry leaf coconut milk pesto was not overpowering, went really well together, tasted delicious !!
A middle eastern platter that had freshly made zattar spiced pita bread/shish taouk chicken kebabs/black hummus/beetroot boraani/baba ghanoush/labneh and harissa.
Garnished with pickled olives and lettuce.
Each and every accompaniment in this platter was fantastic !!!
whether it was the soft pita, eggplant baba ghanoush or the arabic chilli paste harissa.
They have nailed to perfection.
Must try !
The pizzas are made using hand stretched dough and freshly made pizza sauce.
They are baked in a wood fired oven.
– MR GO GO
Hand stretched pizza layered with button mushroom sauce then topped with shitake/porcini mushrooms and goat cheese.
Drizzled with truffle oil.
Hand stretched pizza layered with tomato sauce then topped with fresh basil and buffalo mozzarella cheese.
Both the pizza were fabulous, mushroom lovers should definitely try the mr go go, truffle oil and mushrooms create magic !
Spaghetti pasta tossed in a smoked cherry tomato sauce with garlic/chilli flakes/basil and olive oil.
Tangy tomatoes and punchy black pepper flavour with garlic made the spaghetti extremely delicious.
Must try !!
GOLDEN SNITCH –
Golden chocolate sphere stuffed with raspberry mousse and chocolate truffle creameux.
Garnished with raspberry compote and caramelized chocolate crumbs.
A chocolate lovers favorite, sour raspberry cuts through the chocolaty flavour beautifully.
Overall, Henpecked is wonderful !
It’s all about the freshness of the ingredients and how simple staples, done right can create magic.
Their classic neopolitan style italian pizzas are surely among the best in town.
Even their twisted unique creations were not overly dramatic and struck the right cords.
Go try indulge !
