Something About Sundays...

There's something about Sundays that call for lie-in's, coffee in bed, staying in your pj's until noon and going out for a lazy lunch or dinner. To me, this is the perfect Sunday, call me boring, but I firmly believe that Sundays should be spent doing whatever your heart tells you too.

This past weekend my boyfriend Garrad and I had a busier Sunday than usual, but we decided to round it off with an early dinner before we crashed out on the sofa in front of a movie. We were out in Cardiff and because the weather was so nice we decided to head down to the bay and to one of my favourite spots, Bill's.

'Bill’s Cardiff Bay restaurant is in the historic Pilotage Building. Light and airy during the day, warm and cosy at night, it’s a lovely space for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between.'  - Bill's

Garrad and I love the relaxed yet intimate atmosphere that Bill's provides. The restaurant has gorgeous views overlooking the waterfront and is the perfect spot to do some people watching. I could happily spend all day cwtched up there with countless cups of coffee watching the world go by.

This Sunday however we were both starving, so food was our top priority! We started with some tortilla chips with guacamole and salsa. These tortilla triangles were light and flakey and a great appetiser whilst we were browsing the menu.

I probably could have munched my way through the entire menu but instead I settled on the 'Mojo Chicken Skewers'. These came on a bed of cous cous with a warm piadina bread (similar to a tortilla wrap) and a bowl of tzatziki for dipping. The chicken had been lightly marinated and was tasty, not spicy. The whole dish was light but satisfying and just what I was craving. I would definitely order this again.

Garrad went for the buttermilk chicken burger with streaky bacon and cheese that came with a side of sweet potato fries. I didn't try it but Garrad said he'd highly recommend it.

We also couldn't resist ordering a side of Bill's Mac and Cheese. This was absolutely gorgeous! Very indulgent and probably a million calories, but it was 1000% worth it.

Now pudding is a subject that I find hard to resist. And when I saw the word doughnut on the menu, I was there!
Bill's serve mini cinnamon doughnuts, fresh out of the fryer with strawberries and a side of chocolate dipping sauce. The doughnuts were still warm when they arrived and we were quick to drown them in the indulgent chocolate sauce.

The doughnuts were light and fluffy, with a gorgeously crispy outer. They had been sprinkled with cinnamon sugar that added a delicious texture, For me, these were the highlight of our meal. 

If you're yet to discover Bill's, Garrad and I would thoroughly recommend it as a Sunday chill out spot. They also do a fabulous brunch menu!

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. I'd love to know your favourite Sunday spots... xoxo
