Fluffiest pancakes at Bills, Darlinghurst

It has been a while since my last visit to Bills. The last time I came here was with M, for breakfast, and we both ordered the same thing! Scrambled eggs with mushrooms and avocado – it’s our ‘regular’. The scrambled eggs are delicious creamy that you keep coming back for more.

I took my cousin Ir here. He has been to Sydney a couple of times now but has never ever been to Bills. He loves pancakes and he went to pancakes at the rocks on his last visit – it’s funny how everyone knows about it and is a ‘must go’. I personally haven’t been there for at least 10 years! I do remember having pancakes after a big night out and thought it would soak up all the alcohol with pancakes! Those were the times!

I had reached my coffee quota that day already, so didn’t have another one. Ir on the other hand, ordered the cappuccino which was a little too sweet for me. The chocolate on top makes it sweet and I personally am not a fan! However, besides that, the coffee was delicious as always, creamy and as Ir said ‘went down nicely’.

Ir ordered the ricotta hotcakes with fresh banana and honeycomb butter. I told him it was a must at Bills, and that he has never had hotcakes until he has been to Bills! No one makes hotcakes like they do. The hotcakes were incredibly fluffy and light. The honeycomb butter was to die for! I couldn’t help but have a couple of mouthfuls – oh honeycomb butter, how I have missed you! Drizzled with maple syrup, it was just heavenly. He devoured this and said that it was indeed the best hotcakes he has eaten. ‘It was the bomb!’ he said.

I on the other hand opted for something savoury. Semolina-crusted calamari with lemon, parsley, green beans and fennel. I was craving calamari and this certainly satisfied it. I noticed that it didn’t come with green beans and fennel, but with spinach salad and dressing. The calamari was lightly coated, enough to give it that crunchiness. It was tender and succulent, and the tartare sauce which had a touch of tangy-ness to it was a great complement. It was exactly what I needed and wanted!

We sat there catching up and giggling. Oh dear cousin I have missed you! Come back! There are still a lot of places I haven’t taken you. He was here for about two weeks and we did not even make a dent on the list of restaurants that I created for him! At least you can now say you have been to Bills and had their amazing ricotta hotcakes!

Missing you and please come back!
