Two-second takeaway: A cute place with a live kitchen, amazing food, and light music makes Henpecked a perfect spot for a laidback Saturday night.
There are a lot of interesting books for bibliophiles to devour with their food. The live kitchen is situated to the left of the bar counter.
The staff is not only generous but also extremely polite. Unlike many other restaurants (we won’t be taking any names here), they are also well-informed.
Let’s talk Mocktails
I would recommend you go for the Wild and Free. It is a combination of watermelon juice, fresh coconut water, honey and a pinch of sea salt. There is also a hint of lime which is very refreshing. More importantly, it’s all-natural with no artificial flavours.
The Mezze, a sharing plate, came with Black Hummus, Beetroot Borani, Baba Ghanoush, Labneh, Harissa, Za’atar Pita and the Shish Taouk Chicken. We recommend the Black Hummus and the Harissa.
Any Harissa or Hummus lovers in the house?
The harissa is spicy enough to tease your taste buds gently and will leave you craving for more. The harissa tasted best with Shish Taouk Chicken. The chicken was roasted really well, not spicy, not bland, perfectly balanced taste. The Pita bread too proved to be a worthy accompaniment. Watching it being cooked in the live kitchen made it even more enticing.
Do not miss out on the Pizza here at Henpecked!
The Lamb Pizza and the Pin-Rolled Romano base is the definition of comfort food. The base consists of Buffalo Mozzarella and is topped with shredded lamb and pine nuts along with dill cream. The pizza is big enough to serve two unless you have a serious appetite! The vegetarians can choose from various other pizza options available and I’m pretty sure they won’t be disappointed.
Just one thing though, have it while it’s still hot. Pizza is not a dish best served cold.
End on a Sweet NoteThe Harry Potter themed Golden Snitch: The is a golden ball resembling the golden snitch from Quidditch as seen in the Harry Potter series. The outer covering is made of chocolate. The inside consists of raspberry mousse, chocolate mousse, chocolate fudge mouse, and raspberry syrup. All-in-all a must-have dessert for those with a sweet tooth.

I entered this place on a happy note and left it on a much sweeter one thanks to these desserts!
White Chocolate Cheesecake
SO this one has been around since the time when Henpecked was “Farmer and Sons”. One reason why this cheesecake is still around is that there is no replacement, period. No wonder it is their signature dessert. And trust me, the taste does justice to the status it has achieved over the years. The white chocolate and pomegranate make for an amazing combination. The almond flakes at the bottom of the cheesecake add a crunch to every bite. I entered this place on a happy note and left it on a much sweeter one thanks to these desserts!
