bills and The Lobby Lounge

finally met up with Shirley after a long time. so good catching up on holidays and talking about fashion over food (:

been wanting to go bills for a while since it's by Bill Granger who is a celebrity chef, but not a massive one, which does explain why the cost of stuff here is a bit pricier than your average cafe. also, my parents have been here before, so I wanted to try it...

ricotta hotcakes, banana and honeycomb butter 20.00, regular coffee: flat white and cap: $3.90


the pancakes were quite fat and filling, with bits of ricotta inside, but i guess it wasn't amazing, and wished there was more maple syrup...these were more dry/fluffy compared to your normal butter pancakes.

zucchini fritters, deep fried egg, haloumi, parsley salad, tahini yoghurt and pickles $23.50 

we chose this since we both haven't had zucchini fritters and deep fried egg before. wished there was a runny yolk inside...the fritters were nice, but again not amazing. was pretty full from that meal, probably because of all that oil in deep fried stuff and butter from the pancakes.

dessert at the Lobby Lounge!
citrus tart-$5, Anna's mess-$9.50


really get disappointed when food looks bigger in photos than irl. the Anna's mess looked really cool with those holes, but was quite small and probs a bit too much white chocolate. the inside had a mousse, but would have preferred the rose flavour to be a tad stronger. 

the citrus tart was quite nice, but had a super tough cookie base. i liked how it wasn't too sweet and balanced nicely with the lemony, grapefruit (?) mousse. yay for meringue pieces!

i think i mentioned this before, but nowadays i can't each as much as i used to ): what happened to my stomach space...so this made me super full until dinner, where i only had a little bit to eat. getting old.

  1. Your artsy photos <3 A uni friend went to Bill's once, and said the pancakes were quite good. Your parents must be quite hip with food if they've been there!
