Notes: We've been here a few times already. Hennessy's opened with a bang on New Year's Eve of 2011, and has been cookin' ever since. The menu includes a great hamburger, fast-becoming-legendary curry dishes (one lamb, one chicken), various types of steaks and salads, and assorted bar food. We're a little puzzled by the tiny portion of rice served with the curry dishes (we almost didn't see it...) and the addition of french fries. And the quality of the menu itself is so bad we could hardly read it... and so out of keeping with the rest of the place (we hear (and surmised...) that the menus are temporary, but still...). The architecture is lovely and manages to create a cozy atmosphere in a renovated colonial building with tall ceilings. You can hang out, drink, eat, watch the game or a music video or even play pool. Oh, and did we mention, this place has the best music soundtrack in Merida (in our humble opinion)? We can see why this place is becoming so popular!
