An indulgent meal at Bill’s Restaurant based in the Intu Trafford Centre was exactly what I needed after a long day and a lot of pampering.
The restaurant is very kitsch and there is a lot to look at while you wait to order, I love the decor of this particular restaurant as it’s very warm and inviting! Bill’s is situated on the top deck of The Orient, opposite The Weatherspoons. Its location was spectacular for people watching but also for the food, staff and atmosphere.
Bill’s offers a number of delicious drinks and cocktails including a Bramble Mojito and an imperial punch, but as I was driving I stuck to something soft. I decided against a boring Coca-Cola and chose a snazzy Pink Lemonade. (I’ll definitely be back to try some cocktails)
For my starter, I had the Roasted Squash, Red Lentil and Coconut Soup with crème fresh and coriander which tasted incredible. The dish was really warming and had a great collaboration of flavours, I really enjoyed the infusion of coconut and the roasted squash which created a delicious taste. The soup came with two slices of beautifully toasted bread which left me set to burst. I lost the picture I took with my professional camera so this one will have to do! It does not do it justice..
For my main, I had the Halloumi & Hummus burger with a side of skin on fries, as a vegetarian I have had my fair share of Halloumi & Hummus burgers, therefore, I was expected good things from Bill’s. I was presented with a burger towering on the plate, the burger filled with halloumi, hummus and salad! It was so big I had to cut it before trying to eat it. Once I halved the burger I began to dig in, the halloumi and hummus worked really well together and the halloumi was the perfect side of salty. I also really enjoyed the skin on fries, they were crispy, tasty and grease free which is a massive plus. Overall the burger and fries were delicious and it left me with a serious food baby.
To end the evening, I had a latte as there was no room left for dessert and I needed some energy for the drive home! The service was outstanding and I notice all of the customers received the same out of care and attentions (not just those who were reviewing). Everyone was very welcoming and on hand to help with meal choices! This was my first time at Bill’s in the Intu Trafford Centre but it certainly won’t be my last.
