My second visit to Bills Sydney was like the first.  Lousy.  I just don't understand the preparations or flavors here and there is nothing that would make me go back again.  Plus the place is expensive and when I pay a high price for a meal I want to leave satisfied.  I left Bills Sydney craving something good to eat.  We started with the Korean Fried Chicken Wraps ($12).  The chicken was dry and tasteless.  The lettuce was great but even the Chilli Sauce could not make this dish taste good.  Bland...bland...bland.   The Snapper Ceviche with Fennel, Avocado and Oranges ($14) was actually pretty good.  Light and refreshing but the Snapper was placed on the dish in large pieces so you got a big bite of Snapper.  Would be nice to have more smaller pieces so you can enjoy a bite of Snapper with the other ingredients.  The Avocado was also cut in pieces that were too large.  To make this salad more appetizing I would recommend cutting up the Snapper and Avocado in smaller pieces and mixing it all up.  The Pappardelle with Veal and Pork Ragu ($18) was a bomb.  My Daughter who loves Pappardelle and can eat an entire package of it took about two bites and said she did not like it. Me and my Wife tried the Ragu first and it was salty as hell.  That is all you could taste.  The Pappardelle and Sauce were bland and tasteless.  The waitress asked if we would like the entire plate of food boxed and we all said "no".  The Avocado and Tuna Poke ($18) also disappointed.  The combination of Tuna Poke and Brown Rice did not work for us.  The sauce tasted like only Sesame Oil and that is it.  I love Tuna Poke and could not eat more than a bite.  The Heirloom Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Pizza ($15) was thin and crisp the way I like pizza.  The Tomato and Basil were fresh and delicious.  Then there are these lumps of cold Mozzarella placed on top so you get one bite of cheese with each slice.  I don't like this and would prefer a bit of cheese with every bite.  The pizza sauce is pretty bland so we added the Chili Sauce for some flavor and heat.   Cannot understand how this restaurant and their recipes stays in business.  Love the location and design of Bills Sydney and the service is good.  Employees do a great job making you feel welcome.  Only wish I could connect with the food.  Click link below for previous post on Bills Sydney;
