Dine with Dimmi - Henry & The Fox @ Friday, February 10, 2017
Tuesday 24th January
After lunch the other day (yesterday actually) we came across Henry & The Fox which sounded familiar, turns out it was on my Dimmi to-eat list! And so we popped by for a quick dinner before the show.
Turns out Henry is a Deer!
Located on Little Collins, it's a leafy area. Green for the city, and quite nice away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets. More of a lunch spot they also do dinner, sandwiches, burgers, pastas and more.
With bright interiors it was very bright... being a breezy day we made the mistake of sitting outside aka in the smoker's zone. I look forwards to a day where there is no smoking outdoors, instead there's a cancer room like at the airport.
Home-made potato gnocchi, slow braised lamb shoulder, salsa verde, radish $27
Pesto with soft cheese, lamb and jus. Needs another element, onion jam perhaps? Quite good though got boring towards the end, repetitive flavours, the doughy gnocchi. More sauce or smaller pieces would help. Above average though nothing amazing. It needs that special something.
Roast pumpkin salad, avocado, lentils, quinoa, spinach, ricotta, cucumber,
carrot, swiss chard, mint, pumpkin seeds & sherry vinaigrette / $18.5
We also ordered a salad for lunch tomorrow, served cold and vegetarian it'll be ok in my bag during the show before getting home at 11pm. The manager recommend a squeeze of lemon.
How was it? Needs a protein, chicken or a boiled egg. The squeeze of lemon tip was great! As the original dressing wasn't as moist as before, perhaps that needs to sit on the side. It was quite good though nothing I'd get again.
Service varies, guy at the bar was great and so was the manager. Girl serving out front not so much, she just tolerates me. I'm amazed how many people just tolerate me when our interactions are minimal. Guy at the local kikkik doesn't like me either. The Review girls are always lovely though!
