Great new restaurant in Waikiki near Alii Beach Rentals office
Posted by Unknown | Thursday, April 17, 2014

This month a new restaurant opened in Waikiki near our office here at Alii Beach Rentals on Kalakaua Avenue.  It's called Bills Sydney and it's at 280 Beachwalk Avenue near the corner of Kalakaua Avenue.  If you are staying at our vacation rental units at the Regency on Beachwalk or the Waikiki Shore then you are just a few steps away!

Australian chef Bill Granger opened his first restaurant in Sydney when he was just 22; he has since opened seven more locations, four of them in Japan. His cookbooks include Simple Honest Food, Bill’s Everyday Asian, and Bill’s Italian Food.  This is his first restaurant in Hawaii.

The menu at his Waikiki restaurant includes zucchini fries and tahini, pictured above, which is what I tried.  The squeeze of lime really made it special.  I highly recommend trying it.  I also tried their pavlova which was like a big meringue but way better!  They have really different items like a brown rice miso porridge topped with coconut yogurt; and special-to-Honolulu dishes such as a poke bowl and pizzas. The chef got a lot of his ideas by going to local farmer's markets.

His restaurants are famous for breakfast treats such as ricotta hotcakes with banana and honeycomb butter and scrambled eggs that Food and Wine says “are like none you’ve ever tasted".
It’s friendly, bright and airy, modern meets rustic beachhouse with lots of unfinished wood, plushy sofas and stylish wicker chairs.  It's very family friendly and has special booster seats for little ones.

Breakfast and lunch prices range from $8 to $18. Dinner ranges from $10 share plates to $32 entrée-sized portions.  They also have a bar upstairs with specialty cocktails made with local ingredients.  Also upstairs you can sit on their outside patio area with a great view of Waikiki!
