A Sydney Exploration: Bills

Bills

Bills is one of Bill Granger’s three restaurants in Sydney. We hadn’t planned on dropping in, but we had a late lazy start to the morning. What else can one expect on a long weekend besides snugging under the warm covers with the heavy hotel curtains drawn to block out any sunshine?

Thankfully the initial breakfast crowd had already thinned and we had our pick of seats at Bills – both inside and out. The rest of the clientele appeared as relaxed as we were and dressed casually, even when they were there for a meeting.

Bills’ breakfast menu has some instantly recognisable items, such as scrambled eggs, muesli and loaves. And then there are items such as the crab, chorizo and kim chee fried brown rice, and brown rice and sweet white miso porridge with coconut and mango. Perhaps a little too adventurous for my palette in the morning, but we were had a hunger craving to satisfy.

The full Aussie breakfast comes with scrambled organic eggs, sourdough toast, bacon, roast tomato, swiss mushrooms, pork and fennel sausages. It all smelt so delicious as the SO rearranged the plate to work out which to eat first.

Thick fluffy pillows of ricotta pancakes stacked on top a foundation of pale creamy yellow bananas – that was my attempt at a healthy breakfast, but I somewhat doubt the liberal lashings of butter and honey with soft dustings of icing sugar would neutralise any healthiness to the meal.

Nonetheless, I wiped the plate clean – even of its icing sugar- and it made me all the happier to face the rest of the day.
