Have been exploring more of the North of Melbourne. I drive past this place all the time and finally found time to check it out! If you’re around Thornbury and you’re feeling like some particularly tasty eats, try Little Henri.
Industrial vibe mixed with old world warmth. When it’s super busy the place feels really cosy with rich wooden furniture, leather seating, highlights of cool green and peeling paint feature walls. But when the crowd thins out you can appreciate the industrial vibe created by high ceilings, factory-like windows with black trims and oversized pendant lighting. I love the mix! There’s also what looked like a really nice outdoor area. Looking forward to sitting outside when the weather gets warmer again.
I had the smashed avocado with thyme buttered mushrooms, Persian feta and basil. It was amaze! Never had smashed avo with basil before. Interesting flavour. Usually I reserve basil for Pho and other Vietnamese related dishes, or salads. Have now decided to put basil on everything!
The only strange thing I found about Little Henri is that it’s “cash only”. So remember to carry cash, because if you’re anything like me you’ll be first, frantically trying to recall if you have any cash and then secondly, begin rummaging through your bag looking for crumpled $5 notes while everyone just watches and waits… and waits…. and waits. So… carry some cash.
