Yesterday, Mr T and I ventured out to Shichirigahama Beach (七里ケ浜) in Shonan (湘南), which is in Kanagawa Prefecture (神奈川県). We planned to eat at Bills (ビルズ) and then visit our friends at Cook Snaps, a cooking website which is located in the same building complex.
I am sooooo glad that we went to Bills on a weekday. Even though we were having a late lunch around 2:00pm we had to wait a quick 15 minutes. Usually on the weekends the wait can be anywhere for 3-5 hrs. YES you heard me right, 3-5 HOURS!!! That is crazy, and to wait that long is even crazier. hahaha. Bills is located in a beachfront building on the second floor. Love the view.
Originally we wanted to sit outside, but the hostess warned us of heavy wind. The view was so beautiful but the couple that was sitting outside looked uncomfortable so we decided to eat indoors.
We started our meal with drinks. I had smoothie and Mr T had a frappe. They were good and all, but for the price we both wished that they were a little bit bigger.
We both chose one item on the menu and then split them both. As the couple next to us was having pasta and it looked divine, I decided I wanted to eat it too. So I ordered the pan fried tomato, zucchini, oreccheitte (small ear shaped pasta), basil and ricotta. This was mighty tasty.
Mr T ordered the fine steak sandwich, carmelised onion, rocket, fresh tomato, horseradish cream. This was okay. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be.
It had been a long time since I last went to Bills, so for dessert we split the ricotta hotcakes, with fresh banana and honey comb butter. I have to admit the pancakes were so light and fluffy and delish!
With full stomachs we went to Cook Snaps. It was such a fun day, although taking the train took way longer then we expected. I do like Bills although I would never wait 3-5hrs to eat. However the view was lovely, I can’t wait for summer! What is the longest you are willing to wait to eat?
