My lovely sister shouted me lunch at The Henson to celebrate my graduation (second Bachelor degree!). The American-themed menu has many gluten-free options (not indicated, so ask the staff). Portion sizes are also Americanised, so come with a big appetite.
My favourite were the smoked pork baby-back ribs with chilli orange glaze, jacket potato, Pepe Saya crème fraiche + ginger slaw. Huge serving and everything was very tasty. We were delighted to see that they provide the small Pepe Saya rounds when you ask for butter to add to the potato.

The pork belly burger with pickles, iceberg lettuces, kimchi kewpie, jalapeño mustard & chips, which comes with corn tortillas when ordered gluten-free, wasn’t as good as the ribs. The pork was on the dry side, but I really enjoyed the sauces and the chips.
