Okay, we admit it, we are seriously thrilled about the restaurant “bills” opening in central Tokyo. The Australian restaurant based in Sydney is known to serve the “best breakfast in the world”, and apparently their food is so good that celebrities from around the world travel to Sydney to have a meal there. So, naturally we had to have one of our reporters check the new restaurant – and our verdict? Their amazing soft scrambled eggs are to die for!
The restaurant is located on the 7th floor of the brand new shopping complex Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku that opened on April 18th. (If you’re interested, you can read one of our past posts in Japanese about the impressive new shopping complex.) This is actually the fourth bills restaurant to open in Japan, but the first one located in central Tokyo.
Our reporter had previously been to the bills restaurant in the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse Building (known as the Aka Renga Souko in Japanese) and also the one in the shopping and entertainment facility Decks Tokyo Beach in the Odaiba area and had found the food delightful and unforgettable, but both locations had been somewhat far from central Tokyo. As such, our reporter is extremely happy that bills has opened a shop in a more convenient location in the Omotesasndo/Harajuku area, and with many people probably feeling the same way, the restaurant is sure to attract a lot of attention and customers in the coming months.
Bills is actually famous for their “ricotta pancakes” – a dish hailed by many as worthy of being called the best breakfast in the world. But there is another dish at bills which seems to be just as or even more popular – their heavenly scrambled eggs (priced at 1200yen ($15) with bread). Well, they’re called scrambled eggs, but at bills, they only stir the eggs lightly 2 to 3 times while cooking, so the finished eggs are not really “scrambled” but very soft and smooth like an omelette.
Naturally, our reporter wanted to have both the scrambled eggs and the ricotta pancakes, and yes, we did order both incredible dishes, but our report in this post will focus on the scrambled eggs. The standard plate of scrambled eggs at bills comes with bread, but it’s quite a big serving (especially if you want to have the ricotta pancakes as well), so we were very glad when we found out that we could order scrambled eggs without the bread for 200 yen less, and that’s exactly what we did.
