Surry Bills

Actually, it's called "bills Surry Hills", 359 Crown Street, Surry Hills, +61 2 9360 4762. The 2nd of the bills franchise, or empire, or whatever you want to call it. Here you'll find the signature creamy scrambled eggs, corn fritters with bacon, and ricotta hotcakes with honeycomb butter and banana. So this morning I decided to see if the hotcakes taste as good as they look...

The verdict? Very good. Nice fat hotcakes with the odd lump of ricotta sealed inside. A couple of discs of honeycomb-speckled butter, which added grease but not alot of honey flavour. And some sliced up, bruised banana, which is forgivable given Australia's Cyclone-Larry-induced banana crisis.

Bills now has at least three restaurants, and I have lived in Surry Hills & Paddington for the past 4 years. The thing that really confuses me about Bills, I have been to all three a few times, is that in those 4 years, Bill must have written about 272 new cook books and a few thousand new TV series. Yet, his menu is exactly the same in all 3 cafes, is very small (a good thing), and has never changed in those 4 years. It's good though obviously a bit boring now, but surely if he has so much material, he could use some of it in his own cafes?

Breakfast at Bill's this morning was a bit disappointing. Scrambled eggs were luke warm, and we had a 50 minute wait for our order to arrive. We've had much better service and food in the past, so maybe they were just having an off day. But for $50 for brekky for two, I would expect more.
