Henry and the Fox

Henry in the Fox is a Modern Australian restaurant in the heart of the city. We saw them featured on Dimmi, so thought they deserved a mid-week visit. At first, they seated us in an intimate corner of the restaurant. When I asked my friendly waiter for a table with more light, he kindly obliged.

We started off with a Paloma Cocktail featuring Altos Tequila, Agave, & Pink Grapefruit. The agave syrup gave it a unique sweetness, and gave me fond memories of my Mexican travels.

The Cape Grim Scotch Fillet was so delicious. We ordered it medium, and they served it medium, top marks! It was lightly seasoned and served with a crispy kipfler potatoes and a refreshing side salad.

Up next, the pearl barley salad. This was sensational. The soaked raisin provides an inspired punch of sweetness, complementing the smooth crunch of the peeled cucumber. They put the whipped feta on the side for Janeca, as I’m allergic to dairy. She liked it too. If you visit you must order this dish.

Side dish time – Seasonal greens. The photo doesn’t capture how fresh and green this dish was. Prepare only with salt, pepper and EVOO. It was a real crunchy treat.

The place was busy that night, so staff were a little rushed. We couldn’t finish all our salad, so they gave us a nice box to take it home in. Altogether great food, attentive service and chilled ambience. We had a really nice time at Henry and the Fox. Recommended.
